Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper hauled in six of his nine targets for 100 yards in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Cooper came through for his fantasy owners with 10 catches for 81 yards while drawing operating opposite Jalen Ramsey last week, so he's leaving no question he is still the clear lead receiver in Dallas. Having drawn 23 targets through two games and with a ton of weapons around him to keep some of the defensive attention off him, it's only a matter of time before he goes off for his fantasy owners. That time could be as soon as Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz set career highs across the board, catching nine of his 10 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Schultz's best game as a pro prior to this one was three catches for 37 yards as a rookie in December of 2018. This performance has the feel of a being a one-hit wonder, but he has virtually no competition for targets in the same target-heavy role Jason Witten occupied last year and the one Blake Jarwin was supposed to have before tearing his ACL last week. Schultz may be worth picking up in deeper leagues, but he will not be a recommended fantasy start in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb caught six of his nine targets for a team-high 106 yards and added a nine-yard carry in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Lamb has yet to score a touchdown through his first two career NFL games but is already flashing his immense fantasy upside. Defenses already struggle to contain Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, typically leaving the rookie with the easiest matchup of the group. Lamb is in great shape to enjoy another big game again in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 89 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries and added six receptions for 33 yards in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons. Elliott also fumbled twice, losing one.
Huddle Up: Dak Prescott converted three short touchdown runs, so Elliott's day could've been much bigger than it was. As it is, his fantasy owners will have to settle for another day in which he easily topped 20 fantasy points in PPR formats. Few fantasy running backs in recent memory possess such a high floor and do so without durability concerns. He's will be a no-brainer top-five option yet again in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott finished 34-of-47 with 450 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons. Prescott added five carries for 18 more yards and three scores.
Huddle Up: While his three short rushing TDs will certainly draw the ire of Ezekiel Elliott's fantasy owners, there was little normal about this contest. The Mississippi State product did make history, however, becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for more than 400 yards and rush for three touchdowns in the same game. Prescott has the supporting cast and talent to put up week-winning performances on a regular basis, and he may get another chance to do so in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (head) missed two snaps during the Week 2 game because he was being evaluated for a concussion but was cleared to return to the game.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation over the next few days to see if Prescott deals with any concussion symptoms. Prescott is a weekly starting option in all leagues when he is healthy.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Cooper has been one of the better receivers in the NFL over the last few seasons and will continue to be the main option in the passing game for Dallas. He is a must-start option in all leagues this week.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is expected to play in Week 2, head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday, Sept. 18. '(Cooper) went through the mock game and everything today,' McCarthy said. 'I don't foresee a setback there.'
Huddle Up: Cooper caught 10-of-14 targets for 81 yards in the Cowboys' opener, and has an even better matchup Sunday against the visiting Falcons. Barring any reversals of fortune in the next 48 hours, lock him in as a WR1 this week.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin (knee) was diagnosed with a 'clean' tear of the anterior cruciate ligament but not suffer any additional injuries in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams. Jarwin is expected to undergo surgery in the near future and make a full recovery for the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: Jarwin was a popular fantasy sleeper this summer, but any chance of him living up to that hype will have to wait a year. Dalton Schultz came on late during camp and should be an adequate replacement for the Cowboys but maybe not fantasy owners. Jarwin's absence should open up a few more looks for the likes of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb - all of whom should be starting in fantasy in the majority of games moving forward.

Dallas Cowboys FS Darian Thompson had 10 tackles (nine solo) in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Thompson is floating on most waiver wires and should be scooped up if you play more than one DB.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup had three receptions for 50 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Obviously what people will remember about Gallup on Sunday night was his late offensive pass interference penalty -- a call that denied the Cowboys a first down deep in LA territory and also took a lot of yards off of Gallup's total. His five targets were third on the team, trailing both Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. Although Gallup has WR2 upside, he's a safer play as No. 3 fantasy wideout right now.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb caught five of six targeted passes for 59 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Sept. 13.
Huddle Up: Lamb worked mostly underneath but did catch a 33-yarder that stood as the biggest play of the Sunday night showdown. While he's more of a WR5 right now, his upside is very real. Keep him stashed for the time being.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught 10 passes for 81 yards in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted 14 times.
Huddle Up: While Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb are nice pieces it's clear that Cooper remains at the top of the pecking order as his 14 targets were more than the other two combined (11). That being said, the presence of talented pass catchers is likely to depress Cooper's value as the season wears on. He's better suited to WR2 status.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 22 times for 96 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Sept. 13. He also caught three passes for 31 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Elliott turned his 25 combined touches into 127 yards and two touchdowns, which is the kind of upper-tier production fantasy owners have come to expect from Dallas' workhorse. He remains a must-start RB1.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 25 of his 39 passes for 266 yards and a touchdown in a Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Prescott added 30 yards on three rushing attempts.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great opener for Prescott, who came up short on a couple of late drives with the game on the line (though you can argue the legitimacy of the late offensive PI call). On the bright side, CeeDee Lamb looks like a player, and Prescott appears to have a strong trio of receivers to work with. He's a QB1 in Week 2 against a Falcons team that got torched by Russell Wilson on Sunday.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to handle his normal workload this week despite the injury and will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Cowboys. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) is expected to play at 'full capacity' in Week 1, head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Between the lingering health concerns and a Week 1 matchup with Rams standout CB Jalen Ramsey, temper your expectations for Cooper, but he still remains a solid WR2 lineup consideration.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (undisclosed) was working on the side during practice Wednesday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players need to keep an eye in the situation to determine Cooper's injury and if he is in danger of missing Week 1. He will be the main option in the passing game for the Cowboys this season and should be a weekly starting option in all leagues if healthy.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (undisclosed) has been limited or has been a non-participant in practices since Friday, Aug. 28, due to an undisclosed issue and was seen Thursday, Sept. 3, working with a trainer and resistance cords with a trainer on the field.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys have downplayed the issue, but it's not what fantasy owners want to see out of their top picks a week before the season opener. If you've still yet to draft, consider Cooper a high-end WR2 instead of a WR1 with the health question combined with all the competition he has for touches he now has in the talented Dallas offense.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (undisclosed) was limited during practice Monday, Aug. 31. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he is not worried about Cooper's readiness for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: It seems like Cooper is dealing with a minor injury and should be ready for Week 1. He is a part of one of the top offenses in the NFL and should be the main option in the passing game for the Cowboys. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb is 'going to make a big, big difference' on offense, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Huddle Up: Lamb should deliver his share of big plays as a rookie, but with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup also in the mix, steady production could be tough to come by. He has plenty of long-term upside, but Lamb is more a WR4 in 2020.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is 'a No. 1 receiver,' according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'Let's make it clear, Michael Gallup's a No. 1 receiver in my view,' McCarthy said.
Huddle Up: The addition of CeeDee Lamb to the receiving corps has Gallup flying under the radar a bit, but he posted more than 1,100 yards last year in just his second season. He should still be considered a WR3 in what should be a high-powered Dallas passing attack.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb has the ability to play all three wide receiver positions, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Lamb probably will be used mostly as slot receiver this season with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup as the outside receivers. He should receive a solid amount of targets during his rookie season and could be at least a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb took reps as punt returner during practice Friday, Aug. 14.
Huddle Up: While there will be plenty of mouths to feed in Dallas, the Cowboys will likely find different ways to put the ball in Lamb's hands. His big-play upside could make him a viable flex option as a rookie.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said he is optimistic that he will be able to reach a long-term agreement with the Cowboys after the 2020 season.
Huddle Up: Prescott will be playing under the franchise tag this season, but it appears the two sides made good progress before the July 15 deadline. He will be part of one of the better offenses in the NFL this season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.
