Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott finished 62-of-97 (63.9 percent) for 405 yards and 26 touchdowns versus only one interception in the red zone last season, according to Pro Football Reference. Prescott was even better inside the 10, completing 25 of his 35 attempts (71.4) for 114 yards and 21 touchdowns with no interceptions.
Huddle Up: Prescott's weekly consistency was sporadic in 2021, but his strong stretch to finish the regular season left him with a career-high 37 passing TDs (his previous best was 30). With his ankle no longer a concern and the Cowboys expected to let him run more often in 2022, it is possible Prescott is on the verge of another career year and a top-five finish at his position.

Dallas Cowboys LB Micah Parsons said his goal is to get 23 sacks this season to break the single-season record.
Huddle Up: Parsons was 12th among LBs in fantasy points with 84 tackles and 13 sacks. If your league awards more than the typical three points for sacks, his value will increase, but he's a mid-to-low LB1 in IDP leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) "might not be ready for Week 1, but he should be ready sometime in September," according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer.
Huddle Up: Gallup reportedly underwent surgery on his torn ACL in early February, which means Archer (and/or the Cowboys) believe he may only need a little more than seven months to return from an injury that usually sidelined players at least nine months. Needless to say, it sounds like an overly optimistic projection. James Washington, rookie Jalen Tolbert and perhaps even running back Tony Pollard stands to benefit as a result of Gallup's absence.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (hamstring) was sidelined for June minicamp with a hamstring injury, but he expects to be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Lamb is positioned to be the go-to option in the Dallas passing attack, and after two solid campaigns to start his NFL career, he could be headed for a big 2022 season. He has top-five upside at the receiver position.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has had a "tremendous offseason" and is in "top shape," according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "I think the biggest thing with Zeke is he's completely healthy now and he's had a tremendous offseason. The weight that he has been pushing in the weight room, just the numbers that he's been cranking out have been very, very impressive. I can't tell you it's been the best of his career, but he's in top shape. At the end of the day, he's an extremely instinctive, tough, smart football player, great teammate. So, I think he's definitely set himself up for that," McCarthy said.
Huddle Up: For a running back who has never finished lower than 12th at his position in traditional PPR scoring, Elliott receives a lot of grief in the fantasy community. It goes without saying he is closer to the end of his fantasy RB1 than the beginning and Tony Pollard continues to loom as a threat to his overall workload, but Zeke is still a solid bet for 16 to 18 touches each week and the goal-line hammer in one of the better offenses in the league.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott could see an uptick in designed runs in 2022, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Now more than a year removed from the ankle injury that took his 2020 season, the Cowboys may be more comfortable letting Prescott run more.
Huddle Up: For the first four seasons of his career, Prescott averaged 60.3 rush attempts per season. That number dropped to 48 in 2021. Prescott also only recorded one rushing touchdown in 2021, which was a career-low. He's already viewed as a rock-solid QB1, and if he winds up running more, his upside could approach the elite tier of fantasy QBs.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz will report to camp Tuesday, June 14, as contract talks have intensified in recent days.
Huddle Up: Schultz was third among TEs in fantasy points in a year the top tier was decimated with injuries. He should slide down a little bit and remain an upper-middle TE1.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard has not only lined up regularly with Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield during offseason practices, but he has also taken part in receiver drills - including a fair amount of work in the slot - according to Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Huddle Up: This is a bit of an update from a report last week in which Pollard stated he would be willing to work out of the slot if it meant more touches. More slot work (he lined up inside only about 10 percent of his pass routes from there last season) would have several implications on the offense, including potentially less time on the field for either Jalen Tolbert or James Washington while Michael Gallup (knee) heals up. It is unlikely this would have much effect on Ezekiel Elliott's workload as Dallas still very much wants to ride its bell-cow, but this kind of crossover work could make Pollard a poor man's Deebo Samuel. This kind of role would almost certainly lock him in as a low-end RB2 in fantasy.
Posted 6/10/2022 9:19 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard said he hopes to receive more touches this upcoming season and is willing to line up at slot receiver for more chances, according to The Dallas Morning News' Calvin Watkins.
Huddle Up: Pollard has been productive over the last few seasons but will not see most of the work at running back as long as Ezekiel Elliott on the roster. Playing time at slot receiver would help Pollard's fantasy value, and he can be considered a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz's status for the mandatory minicamp next week is still uncertain, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Schultz has started skipping offseason workouts because of his contract situation but would be fined if he skipped the minicamp practices. The two sides about a little over a month to reach a long-term deal since he received the franchise tag this offseason. Schultz will be with the Cowboys for at least one more season and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz is considering skipping the mandatory minicamp because of his current contract situation. He could be fined if he misses the practice since he has already signed his tender offer.
Huddle Up: The two sides have about five weeks to reach an agreement, so fantasy players can monitor the situation. He will be with the Cowboys for at least one more season and should be heavily involved in the passing game. He can be a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 6/06/2022 12:57 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz informed the team he's skipping the rest of voluntary organized team activities as he's frustrated with contract talks. Schultz signed his franchise tender and will make $10.931 million if he doesn't reach a deal by July 15.
Huddle Up: Schultz broke out for a 78-808-8 season that put him third among TEs in PPR fantasy points. That slot is too high of a ceiling because the position was decimated with injuries, but he could be a top 4-6 option.
Posted 6/04/2022 2:50 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott said he has something to prove after he was hampered by injuries last season.
Huddle Up: Zeke seemingly won teammates over last year as he played through a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament. He was still productive, rushing for 1,002 yards and 10 touchdowns, but is he still an elite RB1 in fantasy? That's debatable, but a 47-287-2 line through the air helped him attain RB7 in PPR leagues overall. He'll be a midrange RB1 that could provide a bit more.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb says he is ready to take the reins as the team's No. 1 wide receiver. "I've been ready," Lamb said. "That's just me and my competitiveness. That's in my nature. It's kind of how we grew up playing football. I'm always ready for my name to be called."
Huddle Up: Lamb is far and away the No. 1 option in Dallas' passing attack after the departure of Amari Cooper and should get peppered with targets in 2022. He's a fringe WR1 with elite upside.
Posted 5/18/2022 2:49 am GMT
Dallas Cowboys WR Jalen Tolbert impressed his coaches at rookie minicamp. "He's awesome," offensive coordinator Kellen Moore said of the 2022 third-round pick. "I think he works his tail off. I think you can tell how prepared he is and how detailed he wants to be. I think he's going to be a really good addition for us."
Huddle Up: With the uncertainty surrounding Michael Gallup, who is coming off a torn ACL, there's a chance Tolbert earns a decent role behind CeeDee Lamb and Dalton Schultz in his first season. For now, he's a late-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts and a bench stash at best.
Posted 5/15/2022 10:37 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys WR Jalen Tolbert could earn the No. 2 receiver role in Dallas in his first season, ESPN's Jordan Reid speculates. ''Amari Cooper is gone, and Michael Gallup is recovering from a torn ACL, so Tolbert arrives in a situation where he's likely an instant contributor,'' Reid wrote. ''CeeDee Lamb is the obvious top option, but Tolbert could find himself as the No. 2 target on the perimeter earlier than expected.''
Huddle Up: Even if Gallup ends up not being ready for the start of the season, Tolbert would still have to beat out James Washington for the No. 2 role, and he'll be behind Lamb and tight end Dalton Schultz in the pass-catcher pecking order even if he does. Tolbert is a late-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts and a bench stash until we get more clarity on the Cowboys' situation.

Wisconsin TE Jake Ferguson was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the 129th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Ferguson probably will compete for the No. 2 tight end job during training camp but likely will not have a big role in the passing game during his rookie season. He should not be an option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/28/2022 7:28 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is expected to be 'a question mark' for the beginning of the 2022 season, according to team owner Jerry Jones. 'Optimistically, I expect him to give us a question mark around the first game. And I see a conversation that says conservatively, you would like to have a couple more games to get him out there,' Jones said.
Huddle Up: Gallup suffered his torn ACL in Week 17 last season, so it will be an uphill climb for him to knock out his rehab and be in football shape almost nine months later. It is likely Dallas envisions James Washington as the man who will fill in for Gallup if he is unable to start the season on time, although any potential multi-week absence from Gallup likely means more targets for CeeDee Lamb, Dalton Schultz, Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard. Gallup is very much worth stashing as a WR4 with high-end WR3 upside.
Posted 3/21/2022 11:31 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys WR James Washington likely will have a chance to win the No. 3 receiver job for the Cowboys during training camp.
Huddle Up: Washington was not a big part of the passing game for the Steelers over the last few seasons but will be playing with a better quarterback in Dallas. He is not a great fantasy option at this point, but fantasy players can monitor his progress during camp.
Posted 3/21/2022 10:16 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys franchise free-agent TE Dalton Schultz signed his one-year tender offer Monday, March 21, and is scheduled to make $10.931 million.
Huddle Up: Schultz is under contract for at least one more season, but the two sides have a few months to work on a long-term deal. He should see a decent amount of targets each game and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end.
Posted 3/21/2022 9:42 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) said his surgically repaired left shoulder is feeling fine.
Huddle Up: Prescott could be limited during offseason workouts but should be fine for training camp and the regular season. He did lose Amari Cooper this offseason but will have most of his other targets back in 2022. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/14/2022 12:04 am GMT
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup agreed to terms on a new five-year contract with the Cowboys Sunday, March 13, worth $62.5 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gallup will be a starting receiver for the Cowboys once he recovers from his torn anterior cruciate ligament. He has played well when he has been healthy and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues in 2022.
Posted 3/09/2022 1:37 am GMT
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Michael Gallup has been talking with the Cowboys about a long-term contract that would pay him over $10 million per season.
Huddle Up: Gallup likely will be the No. 2 receiver for the Cowboys if he can reach an agreement since the team is expected to release Amari Cooper. Gallup has to come back from his torn anterior cruciate ligament but would be a at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is ready for Week 1.
Posted 3/08/2022 6:34 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott restructured his contract Tuesday, March 8, to create $15 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Prescott was sixth in fantasy points among QBs, but the team figures to improve its receivers this offseason. That No. 6 spot is his floor for 2022.
Posted 3/08/2022 4:16 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent TE Dalton Schultz receive the franchise tag Tuesday, March 8. The tag is worth around $10.9 million.
Huddle Up: Schultz had a monstrous 78-808-8 season and solidified himself in that tier after the elite Travis Kelces of the fantasy world. Dallas' receiving corps figures to be upgraded this offseason so there is some buyer-beware warning there.
Posted 3/04/2022 10:40 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Michael Gallup has been talking with the Cowboys about a new contract, and the two sides are believed to be close to a deal, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys are expected to move on from Amari Cooper, so Gallup should be a starting receiver for the Cowboys in 2022. He is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but is expected to be ready for the regular season. He can be considered at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is healthy.
Posted 3/03/2022 10:44 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent TE Dalton Schultz is a player that the Cowboys would like to re-sign this offseason, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Schultz is expected to be one of the top free-agent tight ends this offseason, so Dallas will have competition if he hits the market. He should be a starter no matter where he plays in 2022 and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end.
Posted 3/03/2022 8:44 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin (hip) underwent a hip surgery in late February that has 'only been done on hockey and basketball players' - per Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News - and considered 'very uncommon for an active NFL player,' according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News via a source. As such, Jarwin is not expected to be available for the start of the 2022 season.
Huddle Up: This news only solidifies Dalton Schultz's place in the offense and ramps up how important it will be for the Cowboys to secure the impending free agent, who is expected to be a hot commodity if he reaches the open market. Sean McKeon is the only other tight end on the roster under contract at the moment.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is 'going to be here (in Dallas in 2022),' according to executive vice president, CEO and director of player personnel Stephen Jones. 'I want Zeke on my team. You talk about playing through some injuries, I mean, he is a competitor. I think he's a damn good running back and I think he's going to help us win. Obviously, his contract, his money is guaranteed. He's going to be here,' Jones said Monday, Feb. 28.
Huddle Up: Elliott would leave the Cowboys with a dead cap hit of more than $30 million if he was cut at some point this year, so that is one reason why he won't be going anywhere. Elliott looked like a shell of himself after suffering a midseason knee injury, although Dallas could have done him a favor by letting him heal and let Tony Pollard take on a bigger role. Prior to the injury, Elliott looked very good. Jones' comments also suggest the front office isn't keen on the idea of Pollard being a full-time starter. Either way, expect Zeke to see enough volume to be a solid RB1 again in 2022.
