Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb said he added five to 10 pounds this offseason in hopes of being stronger and more durable this season.
Huddle Up: Lamb is coming off a terrific rookie season and will continue to be an important part of the passing game for the Cowboys. He probably will be a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, July 22, completing 11 of his 16 passes in 11-on-11 drills.
Huddle Up: Prescott is officially recovered from his ankle injury, and he will be back at the helm of a loaded offense. Draft him as a QB1.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is expected to be ready for the start of the 2021 regular season.
Huddle Up: Cooper is currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list but should return to practice before the end the preseason. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys PK Greg Zuerlein (back) underwent offseason back surgery, the team announced Thursday, July 22, and is starting training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. P Hunter Niswander will handle the kicking duties at camp while Zuerlein is out.
Huddle Up: Zuerlein, who projects as one of the top fantasy kickers, should be back fairly soon, but it's something to keep tabs on nonetheless if you need to make a more-permanent draft decision soon.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to open training camp, according to a source Thursday, July 22.
Huddle Up: Nothing unexpected and nothing that should keep Cooper out for much of camp. He remains a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 fantasy draft consideration.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is expected to be a full participant during practice Thursday, July 22, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Prescott is working his way back from a season-ending ankle injury and is on track for the start of the regular season. He was one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL before his injury and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb has been playing four different receiver spots during the offseason, and head coach Mike McCarthy said he expects Lamb to make a 'jump' in his second season.
Huddle Up: Lamb flirted with 1,000 receiving yards as a rookie despite Dak Prescott missing most of the year. It isn't a stretch to think he could emerge as a the No. 1 option in the Dallas passing attack and a midrange WR2 as soon as this season.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb will have a strong second season in 2021 and emerge as the team's MVP, in the opinion of analyst Dan Hanzus of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Lamb finished 24th among wideouts with 211.7 PPR points -- and that was with QB Dak Prescott playing only four full games. Expect a production jump in Year 2 for several reasons, and value Lamb as a solid WR2 fantasy draft value.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is in 'the best shape of his life,' according to QB Dak Prescott. 'When Zeke's healthy and Zeke's doing his thing, he's the best running back in the league,' Prescott said. 'It's just exciting to see him in the best shape of his life, or best shape he's been in the NFL. That's going to be special for us moving forward.'
Huddle Up: Elliott is coming off the worst season of his career, but if the Cowboys are healthy on the offensive side of the ball, he is still a key cog in a loaded attack. He should be treated as a RB1, and Elliott could easily be a top-five fantasy option at the position.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) could miss the start of training camp due to irritation in his right ankle and may begin on the physically unable to perform list, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Wednesday, June 9.
Huddle Up: According to Rapoport, it doesn't seem as though Cooper is at risk of missing much meaningful time, but it could put him behind WRs CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup to begin the season, especially with QB Dak Prescott working his way back from injury. Cooper's still a WR1 for now, but this situation will need to be monitored.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup has 'taken a big leap forward in his play' this offseason and is moving all over the formation - including the slot - according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Gallup worked out of the slot on only 6.3 percent of his snaps in 2020 (41 snaps), so it's worth noting the Cowboys are having him broaden his horizons. (By comparison, CeeDee Lamb played 504 snaps in the slot as a rookie, per Pro Football Focus.) Gallup will still likely remain third in line when it comes to handing out targets, but it bodes well for his fantasy upside that Dallas is looking to get him more involved this year.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has had a strong spring in team workouts, offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. '(He looks) great,' Moore said Friday, June 4. 'Zeke has had an awesome offseason. ...He's had total command of the whole thing. ...Fast, crisp. In and out of things. He looks really good, and we're excited.'
Huddle Up: Zeke is coming off his worst fantasy season (standard scoring) in his five years, but if QB Dak Prescott returns at near full force and the Cowboys' blocking improves up front, he should bounce back and enjoy a mid-level RB1 season.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) did not participate in team drills during practice Thursday, June 3, but did take part in 11-on-7 drills.
Huddle Up: Prescott is making good progress in his recovery and should be ready for the start of training camp. He was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL before the injury and should be one of the first quarterbacks selected in fantasy drafts.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard has been getting reps at wide receiver during the team's OTAs, head coach Mike McCarhy said Thursday, June 3.
Huddle Up: There's an asterisk, though, as the Cowboys have been missing several wideouts in workouts. It's also a position that's much deeper than running back as Pollard remains the primary backup to Ezekiel Elliott, who missed only one game last season but was hampered by a nagging calf injury and inefficiency. Pollard remains a 4 -- as in a RB4 -- for 2021 fantasy purposes.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is expected to be a full participant at training camp, according to head coach Mike McCarthy Saturday, May 15. 'Yeah. I have no reason not to think that,' McCarthy said.
Huddle Up: Prescott will need to be selected as a high-end QB1, especially if able to take the field on time for training camp. He's complemented by one of the best receiving corps and backfields in the league and is a top-5 option at his position.

Penn State LB Micah Parsons was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Parsons has the versatility and athleticism to be an every-down playmaker for the Dallas defense. He could make an immediate impact as an IDP option.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) said he is happy with the progress he has made since suffering his injury and is able to do most things at this point. He said he will be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Prescott is one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL when healthy and will have all of his weapons back in 2021. He should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott finished with career lows in rushing yards per game (65.3), yards per carry (4.0) and total touchdowns (eight) during the 2020 season.
Huddle Up: Elliott's production plummeted after Dak Prescott was lost for the year, but with Prescott back in the mix in 2021, Elliott should bounce back. At the very least, he should deliver volume-based RB1 production as the lead back of a potent offense.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) said he feels healthy and will be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Prescott was playing very well before suffering his season-ending injury and will have most of his pass catchers back next season. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues if he shows that he is healthy.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $160 million - including an NFL-record $66 million signing bonus and $126 million guaranteed - to remain with the team Monday, March 8, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: Schefter also added that Prescott's average earnings over the first three seasons will be $42 million. Prescott was playing at a very high level over the first month of the season before suffering a significant ankle injury in Week 5, if only because Dallas' dreadful defense put him in a spot where he almost had to throw for 400-plus yards and three touchdowns to keep his team in the game. The Cowboys obviously are pleased with his recovery, and fantasy owners should be prepared to see him be one of the first five quarterbacks off the board in most drafts this summer.

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.
