Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (thigh) was diagnosed with a thigh bruise, which can be painful, but isn't considered serious.
Huddle Up: Cooper was knocked out of the game after just one catch for three yards. He'll have a superb matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he'll return to WR1 status.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard carried the ball three times for 13 yards in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Once again the Cowboys fell way behind and had to scramble to catch up, which meant keeping Elliott on the field most of the time. Despite some talent, Pollard just isn't getting the looks right now to be more than a handcuff for Elliott owners.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup ended up with four receptions for 48 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Gallup and Tavon Austin helped pick up the slack with Amari Cooper exiting the game early due to a quadriceps injury. If he is forced to miss time, Gallup would be the best downfield threat for fantasy owners in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted five receptions for 57 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Witten has three or more grabs in each of his six games since returning from a one-year retirement, and he has four or more targets in each outing. He isn't a great fantasy option, but not a bad bye-week replacement if you need one. The Cowboys host the Eagles in Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys WR Tavon Austin had five grabs for 64 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Austin picked up the slack with Amari Cooper going down early with an injury. If Cooper is forced to miss time then Austin could have a little bit of fantasy appeal for those looking for a replacement.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 28 times for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the New York Jets and he added five grabs for 47 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Elliott has posted rushing scores in three straight games and five of six outings overall, and he has registered three 100-yard performances overall this season. He has certainly been doing his part for fantasy owners. The Cowboys host the Eagles in Week 7 on Sunday Night Football.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 28-of-40 passes for 277 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 6 against the New York Jets and he added a rushing score in the road loss.
Huddle Up: Prescott has failed to throw a touchdown pass in two of his past three outings, and he has eclipsed the 300-yard mark (actually going over 400) in two outings. He was on fire early on, but has cooled considerably to settle into the low-end QB1/high-end QB2 fantasy territory. Prescott and the Cowboys will try to bounce back on Sunday Night Football in Week 7 against the visiting Philadelphia Eagles.

Dallas Cowboys WR Randall Cobb (hip, back) will work out prior to Week 6's game versus the New York Jets to determine if he will be able to play.
Huddle Up: Cobb was listed as questionable on the injury report but was unable to practice at all during the week. He can probably be avoided by fantasy players this afternoon even if he is declared active for the game.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Gallup had an outstanding Week 5 performance and should be a focal point in the passing game again this week. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle, quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Cooper likely will receive is normal workload this week even though he was limited during practice this week. He should be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Randall Cobb (back, hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Cobb has missed the last two weeks of practice, so he probably will not be able to play. Fantasy players probably should avoid Cobb this week even if he is active.

Dallas Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch (illness) will return to practice Friday, Oct. 11, after sitting out the previous two days with an illness.
Huddle Up: Good sign for the Cowboys' second-leading tackler and his chances of playing Sunday in Week 6. We'll keep monitoring his status during the weekend.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Gallup returned to the lineup last week after missing some games and continues to be a big part in the passing game. He should see plenty of targets this week and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle, quadriceps) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to play in Week 6 as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. He should have a favorable matchup this week and is a must-start option in all leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Randall Cobb (back, hip) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Cobb missed practice after practicing Wednesday, Oct. 9, so his status for Week 6 is in question. He has been a solid option in the passing game for the Cowboys, but fantasy players in most leagues likely will be able to find better options.

Dallas Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch (illness) sat out practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 10, due to illness.
Huddle Up: There are still three more days to go before the Cowboys visit the Jets in Week 6, but it's definitely something for IDP league GMs to keep an eye on with Vander Esch ranking second on the team in tackles.

Dallas Cowboys WR Randall Cobb (hip) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Cobb caught three of six targets for 53 yards in Week 5 for his highest yardage total since Week 1. He isn't worth much consideration in all but the deepest of leagues due to his low touchdown probability most weeks.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (knee/ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Pollard rushed just four times for 19 yards in the Cowboys' Week 5 loss against the Green Bay Packers. His usage depends on game flow and he'll require the Cowboys to have large leads in order to get on the field consistently. He's a flex play in soft matchups.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Gallup caught seven of 14 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown in his Week 5 return against the Green Bay Packers. His workload was expanded as the Cowboys played from behind for essentially the whole game, but he's the team's No. 2 receiver and a viable WR3/flex option in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle/quad) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Cooper was limited through much of last week before exploding for 226 yards and a touchdown on 11 receptions against the Green Bay Packers. He's a firm WR1.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught three passes for 29 yards in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: A couple early TDs put Witten back on the map for fantasy owners this season, but it's clear he's pretty far down the pecking order in Dallas and only returns decent fantasy value when he scores. That's a tough sell most weeks.

Dallas Cowboys WR Randall Cobb caught three passes for 53 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Cobb caught half of his six targets but was mostly quietly against his former club. With Gallup back the passing game goes through him and Cooper, and there's simply not enough left over for Cobb to retain fantasy relevance.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) had seven receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown in the team's 34-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Oct. 6. Gallup was targeted 14 times.
Huddle Up: With Dallas down big midway through the third quarter the team ditched the run game and started airing it out with Gallup and Amari Cooper accounting for 28 of Prescott's 44 targeted passes. Gallup made a nice adjustment to haul in a 50-50 ball over the defender and bulled his way into the end zone for the team's first TD of the day. He looks like a solid WR3 moving forward with some upside in the right matchups.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught 11 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Cooper seemed to be open constantly and even when he was covered he made things happen, including a long touchdown in the fourth when Green Bay was nursing a multi-possession lead and trying specifically not to surrender that kind of play. His lone gaffe was having a ball deflect off his hands for an early INT. Against the Jets in Week 6 he should be a strong WR2 or better.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard rushed four times for 19 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Pollard has done almost nothing the past two weeks, but next Sunday's matchup with the Jets could present an opportunity similar to the one he had against the Dolphins in Week 3 when Pollard ran for 103 yards and a score. It'd be a risky move to slide the rookie into your flex slot, but Pollard's Week 6 upside is genuine.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott carried 12 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers. Elliott was targeted four times out of the backfield, catching a pair for 29 yards.
Huddle Up: Ninety-one total yards and a touchdown isn't bad production, but given Green Bay's recent struggles against the run and Elliott's history against the Packers this was a disappointment. Down 28, the Cowboys had to pretty much abandon the run, but Elliott wasn't great even before the score dictated the change with 21 of his 62 rushing yards coming on a pair of snaps before halftime where Green Bay was playing a prevent defense. Elliott should be primed to rebound against the winless Jets in Week 6.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 27 of 44 passes for 463 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions during the team's Week 5 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Prescott added 27 yards on four rushing attempts.
Huddle Up: Prescott threw for a ton of yards, but much of that came after the team fell behind 31-3 in the third quarter. It was definitely an uneven performance from the fourth-year QB, especially on the turnover front. His first pick went off the hands of Amari Cooper, but his other two were right to the defender -- he had a fourth INT erased on a defensive penalty and another possible one that was dropped by Kevin King. After consecutive losses, Dallas' offense has a chance to get healthy in Week 6 against the woeful Jets.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is officially active for the Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: Gallup should have a solid role in the passing game after missing the last few games. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
