Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Elliott is starting to put up better stats and should have a favorable matchup this week. He can be at least a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys PK Greg Zuerlein (back) tweaked his back during the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings, but head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday, Nov. 23, that the kicker should be fine. 'He looks to be OK. He was here today. I don't see him being in jeopardy of (not) playing on Thursday,' McCarthy said.
Huddle Up: Greg the Leg has made all 16 of his field-goal attempts from 49 yards or shorter, while making just 1-of-4 from 50-plus. He is 17-of-20 on point-after attempts, too, posting 71 total points. He remains a useful fantasy option when healthy.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 23. The Cowboys did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Elliott picked up his first 100-yard game of the season in Week 11 game and found the end zone for the first time in five games. He should have success against the Washington Football Team and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz finished with four grabs for 25 yards and the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Schultz scored his first touchdown since Week 4 against the Browns. He has managed four or more grabs in four of the past five outings, which is pretty spectacular since the Cowboys have started three different quarterbacks during the span. He remains a decent TE2 in most fantasy leagues. The Cowboys host Washington on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup ended up with only two receptions for 29 yards on five targets in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Gallup's production has been very erratic lately, but so has the quarterback play in Dallas, too. Dak Prescott really made Gallup a solid fantasy option, but the receiver has struggled with Andy Dalton, Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert at the helm. Gallup's fantasy value is strictly limited to deeper leagues at this point. Dallas hosts Washington on Thanksgiving night. He was blanked on two targets in the first meeting in Washington in Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb ended up with four receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings and he also rushed twice for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: Lamb has scored in back-to-back games for the first time in his career. He'll look to make it three in a row when Washington pays a visit on Thanksgiving in Week 12. He was blanked in the first meeting on five targets.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper registered six receptions for a team-high 81 yards on seven targets in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Cooper was likely very glad to see Andy Dalton, an NFL-caliber quarterback, under center again in Big D. He didn't get into the end zone for the fourth straight game, but his yardage total was his highest since Week 4 against Cleveland.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard rushed five times for 60 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings and he was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice, but Pollard is going to have to see more touches before he has fantasy appeal outside of the deepest of leagues. As long as Ezekiel Elliott remains healthy Pollard's fantasy ceiling is rather limited. The Cowboys host Washington on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran 21 times for 103 yards in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added two receptions for 11 yards and a touchdown on his two targets.
Huddle Up: It's hard to believe, but his fantasy owners know it all too well, but it is Zeke's first 100-yard rushing performance of 2020. He hasn't scored a rushing touchdown in five games, but at least he had his first receiving score since Week 1. You drafted Elliott in Round 1, you have to stick with him now and hope he finishes with a bang. The Cowboys host Washington on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton returned to the lineup in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings and he completed 22-of-32 passes for 203 yards, three touchdowns and one interception while also rushing for five yards.
Huddle Up: Dalton was knocked out of a game at Washington in October, and then he had a bout with COVID-19. He looked good in this one, leading the Cowboys to an upset road win of the previously red-hot Vikings. Despite the three scores, Dalton remains more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into a revenge game against Washington on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Elliott has rushed for at least 90 yards in only one of the last seven games but has received at least 12 carries in every game. He should continue to be a big part of the offense and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Dalton is on track to play after missing nearly a month because of a concussion and illness. He has a very good receiver corps to work with but probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Elliott has been held to under 65 yards in each of the last four games but is still a major part of the offense for the Cowboys. He can still be considered a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Dalton has not played since the end of October but should be on the field in Week 11. He has a solid group of pass catchers to work with but probably is only a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) said Wednesday, Nov. 18 that his hamstring 'is a little tight. It's a little stiff. It's something that I'm working on every day,' Elliott said. He was able to make it through a full practice Wednesday, and he said the injury feels 'more comfortable' than it did before entering the Week 9 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers before the bye.
Huddle Up: Elliott been a little bit disappointing from a fantasy perspective this season, and it doesn't help that the Cowboys have had some injury woes at the quarterback position. He remains a bona fide RB1 in most fantasy leagues heading into the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Dalton should be back in the lineup this week after a few weeks off. He played well at times since taking over the starting job but probably should only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton will be activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Dalton is on track to play in the Week 11 game after missing the last few weeks. He should be a starting quarterback in two-quarterback leagues and could be a starter in deeper leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (illness) participated in practice Monday, Nov. 16. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Dalton looked good during practice and that Dalton is considered day-to-day.
Huddle Up: It appears Dalton has a good chance to play in Week 11, but fantasy players will know more about his status later in the week. He will be playing the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11 if he is cleared and could be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper pulled in five of his six targets for 67 yards in Week 9 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also ran once for eight yards.
Huddle Up: Cooper is more of a low-end WR2 at best since Dak Prescott was lost for the season. While Garrett Gilbert and Andy Dalton are a step down from Prescott, they appear capable of making Cooper worth a start in fantasy. Dalton should be back from his concussion following the Cowboys' Week 10 bye, and Cooper has a decent shot at being a top-20 receiver in Week 11 against the weak secondary of the Minnesota Vikings.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb hauled in four of his seven targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: After consecutive poor performances due in large part to the play of his quarterbacks, Lamb found more of a connection with the Cowboys' fourth signal-caller of the year in Garrett Gilbert. The rookie did the bulk of his damage on a 20-yard TD catch on out-and-up route midway through the third quarter. Lamb has no chance of returning WR2 value like he had with Dak Prescott, but he'll have a shot at occasional WR3 value when his team returns from a bye in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard ran for a game-high 57 yards on nine carries and gained a yard on his only catch in Week 9 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Pollard entered the weekend as a potential fantasy RB2 despite a bad matchup, but that all changed once Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) was cleared to go. The erosion of the Cowboys' offensive line and loss of Dak Prescott has removed some of the luster from Pollard's status as an elite handcuff, and he probably should be on fantasy benches in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings following Dallas' Week 10 bye.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) rushed for 51 yards on 18 carries and caught two of his three targets for 18 yards in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Elliott got a full workload despite entering the weekend with a hamstring injury that threatened to sideline him. As such, this effort was about all his fantasy owners could've asked for in a matchup against one of the NFL's best rush defenses. This kind of performance figures to be the norm for him for the rest of the season with the offensive line in shambles and Dak Prescott's season over. He'll get a week off before returning as a RB2 in Week 11 versus the Minnesota Vikings.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) has a good chance of playing in Week 9's game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Elliott had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He's having a down year and it wouldn't be surprising if he sees a reduced workload this afternoon due to the injury, so he should be viewed as no better than an RB2 option play at best.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 9 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the team is preparing to be without him, elevating FB Sewo Olonilua from the practice squad Saturday, Nov. 7. Elliott's status likely will be determined in a pregame workout, but there there is 'some thought that it may be in his and team's best interest that he not play,' with the Cowboys' bye upcoming in Week 10, according to a team beat reporter.
Huddle Up: The outlook is growing dimmer as the week goes on, and Elliott owners definitely need to have Tony Pollard or another late-weekend Plan B option at the ready as the Cowboys play in the late-afternoon window Sunday.

Dallas Cowboys QB Garrett Gilbert is expected to start Week 9's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, since he has received the majority of reps in practice during the week, according to multiple sources. Cooper Rush will likely serve as the Cowboys' backup quarterback.
Huddle Up: This is likely to be Gilbert's only start, since Andy Dalton (concussion) is not expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time. He should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday, Nov. 8, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, team owner Jerry Jones said Friday in a radio interview.
Huddle Up: With only 194 total yards and no TDs on 53 touches over the last three games, Elliott's fantasy numbers have slipped markedly along with the rest of the Cowboys' offense of late. He's now a RB2 play at best if he is indeed active with the health issue thrown in, and don't be surprised to see backup Tony Pollard get more run Sunday.
