Impending free-agent QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is reportedly making such good progress from his ankle injury and subsequent surgeries that the Dallas Cowboys want to do a 'big-time, long-term deal now,' according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Prescott still holds the leverage for now because he could choose to play 2021 out with a fully guaranteed $37.7 million under a second consecutive franchise tag, but he may feel a bit more urgency to get something done now than he did at this point last year considering the seriousness of the ankle injury he suffered. Either way, it seems much more likely the two sides get a long-term deal done this offseason than it did last year. If his ankle holds up, Prescott should return to high-end QB1 status in fantasy.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because the team could save around $14 million in salary cap space if they rework the deal.
Huddle Up: Cooper has posted at least 1,100 yards in each of the last two seasons and will continue to be one of the main options in the passing game for the Cowboys. He likely will have Dak Prescott back next season and will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) had a second surgery on his ankle in December but it was not because of a setback in his recovery, according to a source. He should be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Prescott will be a free agent this offseason, but the Cowboys are expected to use the franchise tag again if the two sides are not able to reach a long-term deal. Prescott has played well in the last several seasons and will be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2021 if he is healthy.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent Dak Prescott is still far apart in his contract talks with the Cowboys, according to sources. The two sides remain interested in reaching a deal at some point.
Huddle Up: It seems like Prescott will receive the franchise tag again if the two sides can reach a deal in the next few weeks. He has played well when healthy over the last few season and will be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2021 if he has recovered from his ankle injury.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb caught 12 passes of at least 20 yards when lined up in the slot this season, which was most in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Lamb finished with 935 yards and five touchdowns in his rookie season and may have Dak Prescott for an entire season in 2021 if the Cowboys retain him. He should continue to be a main part of the passing game next season and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) recently underwent ankle surgery that was termed 'a cleanup,' according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer, who added that Cooper will not require a long rehab.
Huddle Up: Cooper was listed on the injury report with an ankle issue a few times throughout the season, so the surgery should theoretically make this a non-issue heading into next season. The 26-year-old finished 2020 with a career-high 92 catches despite being on the opposite end of a lot of uncertainty at the quarterback position. Assuming Dak Prescott returns to full health in 2021 and doesn't miss significant time again, Cooper has a realistic shot at moving into the elite group of fantasy receivers.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott failed to rush for 1,000 yards this season, but head coach Mike McCarthy said Elliott will be a focal point on offense for the team next season.
Huddle Up: Elliott rushed for at least 100 yards in only two games this season and had only one rushing touchdown in his last 10 games. He should receive most of the work at running back again next season but may not be a first-round pick in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is on schedule with his recovery from ankle surgery, but head coach Mike McCarthy did not have a definite timetable for his return.
Huddle Up: Prescott will be a free agent again this offseason, but the Cowboys probably will consider using the franchise tag for the second straight season. He should be a starting quarterback for a team next season if he continues to recover and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton completed 29-of-47 passes for 243 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Week 17 against the New York Giants while posting a game-high 48 rushing yards. RB Ezekiel Elliott also added 14 runs for 42 yards, while RB Tony Pollard rushed five times for 15 yards. TE Dalton Schultz topped the charts with seven catches for 70 yards, while WR Michael Gallup contributed four receptions for 49 yards on eight targets. WR CeeDee Lamb wrapped up his rookie season with five grabs for 43 yards on seven targets, while WR Amari Cooper capped the season with six grabs for 41 yards on nine targets. DE Demarcus Lawrence posted four stops, a sack, a tackle for loss and two quarterback hits.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard was limited to 12 yards on nine carries and caught one of his two targets for eight yards in Week 16 versus the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: It's hard to believe many fantasy owners kept Pollard in their lineup once it became clear Ezekiel Elliott was going to play this weekend. Needless to say, they got burned if they did so. Pollard figures to have week-winning upside anytime he has the backfield to himself in this offense like he did in Week 15, but Elliott is going to keep a pretty firm grasp on his job for the long-term - if only because his contract says he should. Pollard is not an advisable fantasy play in Week 17 against the New York Giants

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper hauled in four of his six targets for 121 yards in Week 16 versus the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Cooper did most of his damage on a 69-yard grab in the third quarter. It's been a trying season for the team's top wideout since Dak Prescott got hurt, but he's the Dallas receiver that has done the best job of maintaining his fantasy value. Cooper will have his hands full trying to be anything more than a WR3 in Week 17 against the New York Giants as he figures to draw the coverage of stud corner James Bradberry quite often.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup caught six of his eight targets for 121 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Gallup is more than capable of these kinds of outings, but his consistency was always the most likely to suffer once the Cowboys drafted CeeDee Lamb. It took another hit when Dak Prescott was lost for the season. In this contest, however, he was the lucky soul that got paired up quite often against the matchup Dallas wanted to exploit this week - first-year corner Michael Jacquet III. Despite this year's up-and-down fantasy performances, Gallup needs to be on the WR3 radar in most leagues if Prescott is under center to open 2021. With Dallas still in the running for a playoff berth, Gallup will be a dicey WR3 option in Week 17 versus the New York Giants.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb hauled in three of his five targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 versus the Philadelphia Eagles. He also ran for a 19-yard score on his only rushing attempt of the game.
Huddle Up: Lamb blew right past Nickell Robey-Coleman on a wheel route for a 52-yard touchdown that effectively blew the game open. He added the rushing score on a fly sweep right after the two-minute warning with the game already decided. Lamb was considered perhaps the best run-after-catch receiving prospect in April's draft and he displayed that ability yet again in Week 16. With Dak Prescott likely back in 2021, Lamb should return to the WR2 territory he occupied before his quarterback got hurt earlier in the season. With Dallas still in the buying for a postseason berth, Lamb should be considered a WR3 option in Week 17 versus the New York Giants.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 19 times for 105 yards and caught four passes for 34 yards in a 37-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Elliott topped 100 yards for just the second time this season, and while his 2020 campaign has been a disappointment overall, he could close the year on a high note when he faces a Giants team in Week 17 that he beat for 91 rushing yards and two scores back in Week 5.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton completed 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 377 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 37-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16. He added 15 rushing yards on five carries.
Huddle Up: Dalton set a new season high in passing yards, and he threw multiple touchdown passes for the fourth game in a row. He has proven to be a viable streaming option in deeper leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is officially active for the Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Elliott should see a solid amount of carries during the game but may share playing time with Tony Pollard. Elliott can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Gallup has been held to under 30 yards in each of the last two games but does have two touchdowns in the last three games. He will see a handful of targets this week but can be benched if better options are available.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for Elliott's official status. He will receive a decent amount of carries if he plays and could be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Gallup has two touchdowns in the last three games but has also been held to under 50 yards in five of the last six games. Fantasy players likely will be able to find better options and can keep Gallup on the bench.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) was limited at practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Elliott has a chance to return in Week 16 and should regain the lead role in the backfield, but expect to see Tony Pollard continue getting more work. Elliott isn't the bellcow he was previously and is a mid-tier RB2.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) may be available for the Week 16 game, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Elliott was not able to play in the last game, and fantasy players will need to monitor his practice participation this week. It is not known if he would receive his normal workload if he active for the game, but he could still be at least a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper managed only two catches on three targets for 10 yards in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers. He also lost seven yards on two carries.
Huddle Up: Despite scoring 41 points, Dallas' offense lost the total yardage battle 458-291. The passing game wasn't able to get much going, which led to CeeDee Lamb being about the only Dallas receiver that did much of anything. Cooper had been able to remain relevant in fantasy for the most part since Dak Prescott's injury, at least until this contest. There's a decent chance he'll rebound in Week 16, however, as he gets to face the injury-riddled secondary of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz ended up with two receptions for 14 yards and a touchdown on two targets in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Schultz has two or more catches in nine straight games, and he has scored in two of the past five. He is still more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues, but he can be useful as a low-cost DFS option with some upside. The Cowboys meet the Eagles in Week 16. He had six grabs for 53 yards on eight targets in the first meeting in Philadelphia on Nov. 1.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb registered five receptions for 85 yards on seven targets in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Lamb's receiving yardage was his highest since posting a season-high 124 yards in Week 5 against the New York Giants. He still hasn't visited the end zone in four games, so he remains more of a WR3/4 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard rushed 12 times for 69 yards with two touchdowns in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers with Ezekiel Elliott (calf) inactive.
Huddle Up: Many Dallas fans felt Pollard could do the job, and a lot of people wanted to see more of him and he produced. It's been a lost season for Zeke, and Pollard might work his way into a timeshare with Elliott if he is able to return in the final two games.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton completed 19-of-33 passes for 209 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added two runs for eight yards.
Huddle Up: Dalton has been surprisingly good since returning from a month-long injury, throwing or two touchdowns in each of his past three games, and four of the past five. He isn't tearing it up, but he's not a bad QB2 in fantasy leagues starting two signal callers. The Cowboys
