Unrestricted free-agent PK Greg Zuerlein (Rams) will sign a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys, sources said Friday, March 27.
Huddle Up: Zuerlein will be reunited with former special teams coach John Fassel and boot for one of the more explosive offenses in the NFL. The weather is generally nice in his new home stadium, and the roof closes, if needed. The retirement of center Travis Frederick, not wanting tight end Jason Witten back, and loss of wideout Randall Cobb could mean the offense is in better shape for a kicker than last year by taking a step back. Zuerlein has one of the strongest legs in the land, and Mike McCarthy's time with Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby was generally favorable for fantasy purposes. Zuerlein is a top-five fantasy option and in the top three spots if your scoring rewards kicks by distance.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, who has received the exclusive franchise tag from the team, has the backing of teammate Sean Lee as he strives to get a long-term deal done with the Cowboys. 'I think we obviously know how great of a player Dak is, how great of a leader he is,' Lee said, via the Dallas Morning News. 'And what he's done for us, really carried us in a lot of ways the last couple of years. We know it's a matter of time for them to figure out contract situations like that. I think we've all been through those or had teammates go through situations like this. And there's a lot of rhetoric and there's a lot of talk in the media, but you know when you have a great player like Dak and you have an organization like the Cowboys that takes care of players, it's a matter of time.'
Huddle Up: Despite the Cowboys' struggles as a team last season, some may have forgotten that Prescott finished as fantasy's No. 3 QB overall in terms of total points. We should at have at least one more season of Dak as a QB1 in Big D, with the expectation that a longer-term deal will get hammered out.

Dallas Cowboys franchise free-agent QB Dak Prescott has resumed contract negotiations with the Cowboys, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys have a few months to reach a long-term contract with Prescott, but Prescott will stay with the team for at least one more season. He was one of the better quarterback in the NFL in 2019 and should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys C Travis Frederick announced his retirement from the NFL via social media Monday, March 23.
Huddle Up: While Frederick himself doesn't handle the ball after snapping it, his impact on the running game and in pass protection will be missed, specifically by RB Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys signed free-agent C Joe Looney (Titans) last week, and he is expected to step in as the replacement for Frederick. Devalue Zeke a little in fantasy, and expect a few more bumps and bruises for QB Dak Prescott.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper's five-year, $100 million contract extension includes a signing bonus of $10 million with fully guaranteed salaries of $10 million in 2020 and $20 million in 2021. His 2022 salary of $20 million is guaranteed for injury, but there is a potential out following the 2022 season with only $6 million in dead money.
Huddle Up: Cooper, who'll turn 26 years old this summer, should have more than three productive seasons left in him. He'll remain a mid-tier WR1 for the foreseeable future in all formats, including dynasty leagues.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent DE Robert Quinn (Cowboys) agreed to a five-year, $70 million deal with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, March 17. The deal includes $30 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Quinn had 11.5 sacks in 12 games last season and finished 18th in fantasy points at the position. He doesn't rack up a lot of stats outside of sacks, but he'll be a low-end DL1 consideration.

Free-agent TE Blake Jarwin (Cowboys) agreed to terms on a three-year contract worth up to $24.25 million to remain with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, March 16. The deal includes $9.25 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: And with that, it's a pretty good bet Jason Witten's time in Dallas is over. Jarwin is coming off a career year (31 catches for 365 yards and three touchdowns) and figures to see a huge increase in targets with Witten no longer around, and the amount of money he's getting suggests the Cowboys see him as an important cog moving forward. Consider him an under-the-radar low-end TE1 for fantasy purposes this season.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent QB Dak Prescott received the exclusive franchise tag Monday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Prescott was the third-ranked quarterback in fantasy points last year after throwing for 4,902 yards. He'll have risk tied to him, though. Can he repeat that breakout? Sure, maybe. However, with this franchise tag, pundits are saying he should sit out the season until he receives a long-term deal. It's way too premature to predict that, but it's something to keep in mind taking him as a high-end QB1.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Amari Cooper could receive interest from the Denver Broncos if he hits the free-agent market, in the opinion of Denver7's Troy Renck.
Huddle Up: The Broncos will be looking to add a starting receiver this offseason but likely would have a lot of competition if Cooper is available in free agency. Cooper will be a focal point in the passing game wherever he signs and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

The Dallas Cowboys have met with the agent of QB Dak Prescott twice since the end of the NFL scouting combine regarding a contract extension, according to a source. The team reportedly offered him an average annual salary of $33 million, with a guaranteed contract of $105 million.
Huddle Up: Prescott and the Cowboys are in a holding pattern right now because a potential collective bargaining agreement could be finalized soon. He should be viewed as a midrange QB1 option entering next season's fantasy drafts.

The Dallas Cowboys have met with the agent of WR Amari Cooper twice since the end of the NFL scouting combine regarding a contract extension, according to a source, although financial proposals are not known.
Huddle Up: Cooper and the Cowboys are in a holding pattern because a potential collective bargaining agreement could be finalized soon but he is expected to seek one of the most lucrative contracts for a wide receiver. He will turn 26 years old in June, meaning he is about to enter the prime of his career, and should be a WR1 candidate in all fantasy formats next season.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper, a pending free agent, reiterated Thursday, March 5, that he is hoping to sign a long-term deal with the team. 'I love being a Dallas Cowboy,' Cooper said Thursday on 105.3 The Fan. 'I think about it almost every day. Just the aura of being a Dallas Cowboy, you can't beat it. I want to be a Dallas Cowboy for life.'
Huddle Up: Cooper finished seventh among fantasy wideouts with 167.5 total points last season and has scored 14 TDs in 25 career games with the Cowboys, averaging 5.3 receptions and 76.6 receiving yards per contest. With Cooper turning 26 in June, he's just entering his prime, and he remains a no-doubt WR1, especially if he remains in Dallas.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Amari Cooper is expected to see contract talks with the Cowboys intensify in the near future, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys plan to use the franchise tag on Dak Prescott, so Cooper is on track to hit the free-agent market if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement. He will be a starting receiver no matter where he plays in 2020 and is at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver.

Huddle Up: Prescott would not be able to talk to other teams if he receives the exclusive tag and would remain with the Cowboys for at least one more season. He can be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2020.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent QB Dak Prescott's agent has not talked with the Cowboys about a long-term contract since September, according to vice president Stephen Jones. The two sides may meet at the NFL Scouting Combine, but nothing has been finalized.
Huddle Up: It appears like Prescott likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason since the two sides have not negotiated for a while. He was one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL this past season and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2020.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has averaged 8.2 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 102.3 with WR Amari Cooper on the field compared to averages of 7.0 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 89.5 with Cooper off the field.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys still need to work out contracts with Prescott and Cooper, but both players are expected to be back, either on long-term deals or via the franchise and transition tags. Assuming the duo stays put, Prescott will enter 2020 as a midrange QB1 while Cooper will be a WR1 candidate.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott reportedly turned down a contract extension last September which would have paid him $33 million a year, according to multiple sources, in the hopes of landing a deal which would have eclipsed the average annual value of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's four-year, $140 million deal.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys could place the franchise tag on Prescott if the two sides are unable to agree to terms on an extension, although there's a possibility that he could skip offseason workouts and miss valuable time adjusting to new head coach Mike McCarthy if that were to happen. He should be viewed as a solid QB1 option in all fantasy formats entering the 2020 season.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is a pending free agent, and Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday, Feb. 6, that negotiations on a long-term extension will soon get more serious. 'We want to get this done,' Jones said. 'Things are fixing to heat up. We want to put every foot forward and try to grind this out and get a deal done.'
Huddle Up: Prescott will almost certainly receive a franchise tag if the two sides can't hammer out a new deal, but that also could entail Prescott skipping offseason workouts and missing valuable time under new head coach Mike McCarthy. Most definitely a situation to monitor with Prescott positioned as solid QB1 in fantasy entering 2020.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper, a pending free agent, could wind up with the Philadelphia Eagles if he isn't re-signed by the Cowboys, in the opinion of NFL Network analyst David Carr.
Huddle Up: Cooper finished as fantasy's No. 7 wideout last season and has ranked among the league's elite since arriving in Dallas via trade midway through the 2018 season. That said, it's tough to imagine the Cowboys failing to retain Cooper, but Jerry Jones & Co. have a number of other financial decisions to make as well, including a potential new contract for QB Dak Prescott, so this situation definitely bears watching.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, a pending free agent, said Thursday, Jan. 30, that he may stay away from the Cowboys' offseason program is he doesn't receive a new contract and the team applies the franchise tag. 'We'll get to that when we get to that,'' Prescott said. 'I look forward to talking to my agents and when that (tag) comes to play, the direction that we'll go. Until that's a reality, I won't worry about it.'
Huddle Up: Most definitely one of the top storylines to follow this offseason as there will be unrest until fantasy's No. 3 QB of a season ago lands a new deal.
