Dallas Cowboys TE Jake Ferguson said he hopes to make a similar jump in play this upcoming season like he did from 2022 to 2023. He posted only 174 yards in 2022 but improved to 761 yards last season.
Huddle Up: Ferguson likely will have a good role in the passing game this upcoming season and should see a decent amount of targets each game. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Rico Dowdle reportedly has a very good chance of being the "RB1 favorite" this season, according to multiple sources close to the team.
Huddle Up: It seems unlikely that Dowdle will be able to force a split in touches with Ezekiel Elliott, but it does seem likely that Dowdle will handle more than the 89 carries and 17 receptions - both career highs - that he amassed in 2023. Dowdle should be considered a RB4 at worst and could have flex value even if Elliott manages to play all 17 games.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb was not present for the start of the mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 4, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Lamb is looking for a new contract and is staying away from the team for the time being. Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Lamb reports for training camp. He should be one of the first receivers selected in fantasy drafts this upcoming season.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will likely be the starting running back this season, but head coach Mike McCarthy sounds certain that as many as three running backs will be handling work - even if he doesn't know who the committee members are yet. "Two or three (running backs), whatever it takes. ... I think you have to pay attention. Whether it's two or whether it's three, frankly, to be honest with you, the players will determine that," McCarthy told ESPN.
Huddle Up: It appears more likely than not that Elliott will handle the bulk of the early-down work, while Rico Dowdle operates as his primary backup. Deuce Vaughn should be considered the favorite to handle most of the passing-down work and could end up carving out more of a role in the offense as the summer progresses, as he has the skill set to be used like Tony Pollard before 2023 - even if he lacks the size.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb is expected to see his contract talks with the team "speed up," according to sources Monday, June 3.
Huddle Up: With Justin Jefferson's contract extension setting the table for Lamb, it should be expected that a deal gets done for the star wide receiver. At any rate, Lamb is an elite WR1 and top five overall player in fantasy for 2024.

Negotiations between the Dallas Cowboys and QB Dak Prescott on a contract extension have been described as "passive" so far, although the team wants to get a deal done before he hits free agency in 2025, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.
Huddle Up: Prescott has played well over the last few seasons and should be even more motivated to play at a high level in the final year of his current deal. He can be viewed as a solid QB1 option in all fantasy formats.

Dallas Cowboys WR Jalen Tolbert appears more confident this season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "He's taken leaps and bounds in that area," McCarthy said. "I think anything that's consistent in this game, the more confident that the individual is, his physicality, his urgency, the understanding of detail, the competitiveness, vastly increases."
Huddle Up: Tolbert should have a bigger role in the offense with Michael Gallup no longer in the mix, but it would still be a surprise if he makes the leap to viable fantasy option.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb is not expected to participate in the organized team activities that start Tuesday, May 21, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Lamb is looking for a new contract and probably will sit out until the mandatory minicamp in a few weeks. He will be the main option in the passing game for the Cowboys this upcoming season and likely will be one of the first receivers drafted in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Deuce Vaughn could see more offensive snaps out of the slot in the 2024 season, in order to take advantage of his speed, agility and ability to change directions, in the opinion of CowboysWire's Reid Hanson.
Huddle Up: At best, Vaughn is expected to be ranked third on the Cowboys' depth chart at running back, behind Ezekiel Elliott and Rico Dowdle. He could be viewed as a late-round flier in fantasy leagues containing 12 or more teams.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jake Ferguson said he wants to prove that his improvement last season wasn't a fluke. "In this league you can't be complacent," Ferguson said. "You've got to just keep going. You've got to keep getting better and that's what I aim to do."
Huddle Up: Ferguson went from 19 catches as a rookie to 71 grabs last year, and he finished second on the team in yards and receptions. Even if he just produces similar numbers, Ferguson should finish as a TE1.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb has not been participating in voluntary workouts this offseason because of his contract situation, but offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said he is not worried because he believes Lamb will be ready to play when he returns.
Huddle Up: Lamb is looking for a lucrative contract and may not be on the field until the mandatory minicamp. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Cowboys in 2024 and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has experienced no progress in talks about an extension, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Prescott was great for fantasy purposes as the QB3 last year. That might be a little high of a ceiling for this year, but if it's in fact a contract year, he's definitely in the discussion among the top 5 signal callers.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said the team will use a running back by committee approach this season, unlike the feature back approach used during RB Ezekiel Elliott's first tour of duty with the team. McCarthy said that he has not seen any drop off in the way Elliott moves but thinks it wouldn't be fair to give him a workload similar to what he saw in the early seasons of his career.
Huddle Up: Elliott had the least productive season of his career with New England in 2023, with career lows in carries (184), rushing yards (642), touchdowns (three) and yards per carry (3.5). Although he is expected to have a larger role in the Dallas offense in 2024, his days as an RB1 fantasy option are likely over. Elliott is most likely to see the field in short-yardage and goal line situations, making him worthy of consideration as an RB3 in many fantasy leagues. RBs Rico Dowdle and Deuce Vaughn are behind Elliott on the Cowboys' depth chart but their fantasy value remains uncertain, as it remains to be seen how many offensive snaps they will see in a typical game.

Updating previous reports, free-agent RB Ezekiel Elliott (Patriots) officially signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, April 30. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Zeke figures to get short-yardage and goal line work, and he'll be an RB3 in fantasy with a boost in TD-only leagues.

Free-agent RB Ezekiel Elliott (Patriots) appears increasingly likely to return to the Dallas Cowboys to complement and help mentor the rookie running back the team is expected to select at some during the 2024 NFL Draft on Friday, April 26.
Huddle Up: Based on recent comments from team owner Jerry Jones, the Cowboys want that rookie to be University of Texas RB Jonathon Brooks. Regardless of the player that Dallas selects to replace Tony Pollard, Elliott figures to handle goal-line duties and perhaps the bulk of work on third down thanks to his ability to hold up in pass pro. While the days of Elliott being a fantasy RB1 are likely over, the aforementioned role may be enough to keep him in the flex conversation.

Free-agent RB Ezekiel Elliott's (Patriots) representative is meeting with the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday, April 24, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys do not have a clear starter at running back, so Elliott probably would have a big role if he decided to return to the Cowboys. Fantasy players can monitor the situation because Elliott could be at least a flex option if he starts in 2024.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said he has not started contract extension talks with the Cowboys at this point but has talked to owner/general manager Jerry Jones about his contract situation.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if Prescott received a new contract, but he will be the Cowboys starter for at least one more season. He has played very well over the last few seasons and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Free-agent RB Royce Freeman (Rams) signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, April 16, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys do not have a clear starter at running back, so Freeman may have the chance to compete for the job during training camp. His fantasy value will be determined by his role in the offense if he makes the team.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb isn't expected to report to voluntary offseason workouts Monday, April 15, as he seeks a new contract.
Huddle Up: Lamb was the top wideout in fantasy last year. He balled out with a 135-1,749-12 season and added two scores on the ground. He'll be off the board early in the first round of drafts.

Free-agent RB Ezekiel Elliott (Patriots) and the Dallas Cowboys have mutual interest in getting a deal done, according to sources Saturday, March 30.
Huddle Up: A deal hasn't been reached yet, but there seems to be interest. A reunion with Dallas would give Elliott fringe RB2 value with Rico Dowdle spelling him as a change-of-pace back.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott remains likely to receive a contract extension, and the team has not ruled out of possibility of an agreement this year, according to a source.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and the team reportedly have a "mutual understanding of his contract situation," according to sources. Per NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Dallas has had talks with Prescott but has not presented Prescott with an offer, nor is there any indication one is in the works.
Huddle Up: Entering the final year of his current contract, Prescott's cap number is a gargantuan $55.455 million, so the team should be motivated to extend him. However, the Cowboys appear to be about as interested in doing an extension with Prescott as they were about getting even moderately involved in free agency. With head coach Mike McCarthy also entering his walk year, Dallas may be looking to hit the reset button after this year if the team fails to live up to expectations again.

Free-agent RB Rico Dowdle (Cowboys) signed with the Dallas Cowboys Monday, March 18. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Dowdle may be the leading candidate for the starting job at this point, but the Cowboys likely will add to the position in free agency and the 2024 NFL Draft. His fantasy value will depend on how big his offensive role will be in 2024.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott converted $5 million of a roster bonus into a signing bonus Sunday, March 17, to create $4 million of salary cap relief. The move reduced Prescott's salary cap number to $55.455 million, and two extra void years were added to the deal for cap purposes through 2028.
Huddle Up: Prescott was the QB3 in fantasy last year, and he really didn't get a lot of fanfare for it. He'll be 31 this season and has a lot of questions about his future with the team. There should be no questions about his merit as a QB you should target in the upper-middle portion of QB1s.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said he is confident that he will receive a contract extension at some point.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said there is a possibility that QB Dak Prescott could play out his current deal instead of having his contract extended in order to lower his salary cap hit for 2024. Prescott has no-tag and no-trade clauses so he could become a free agent after the 2024 season if he does not agree to an extension.
Huddle Up: In another scenario, the Cowboys could restructure Prescott's deal to create $18.52 million of salary cap space for 2024 but it would mean deferring money until the 2025 and 2026 seasons, with Prescott counting nearly $55 million against the cap in 2025 even if he is playing for another team. He is one of the league's better quarterbacks and should be viewed as a QB1 option in all fantasy formats in 2024.
