Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) participated in the team's quarterback meeting Thursday, Oct. 29, but will be held out of practice, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. In all, it makes Dalton unlikely to play Sunday in Week 8, in the estimation of NFL reporter Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: That means rookie Ben DiNucci continues to be on track for his first start, which doesn't portend good things for the rest of the Dallas offense, which has gone from elite fantasy QB Dak Prescott to a seventh-round rookie in a matter of weeks. Downgrade your expectations accordingly.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is not a player the team is willing to trade leading up to the NFL trade deadline Tuesday, Nov. 3, a source said Wednesday, Oct. 28. If the team were to deal a top receiver, Gallup wouldn't be the logical choice.
Huddle Up: Gallup wasn't targeted once in Week 7 against the Washington Football Team, a game which was a mess on offense with Andy Dalton getting knocked out with a head injury. Fantasy owners probably wouldn't mind seeing Gallup moved to a better situation, now that Dak Prescott is gone and Dalton might be, too. However, it looks like he is stuck in Big D for now and his fantasy value might be at an all-time low.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) attended the team meeting Wednesday, Oct. 28, but he hasn't progressed enough to attend positional meetings. He's not expected to be available until the end of the week - at the earliest.
Huddle Up: It's hard to see him going after that vicious hit concussed him. Avoid this situation altogether.

Dallas Cowboys QB Ben DiNucci is being prepared to start in Week 8 with QB Andy Dalton (concussion) in the concussion protocol, according to offensive coordinator Kellen Moore Monday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: DiNucci won't be worth starting and all Cowboys pass-catchers need to be downgraded considerably.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol, but the team isn't likely to sign another quarterback this week.
Huddle Up: It's bad news for all Cowboys pass-catchers and RB Ezekiel Elliott if Dalton is unable to play against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8. Elliott and WR Amari Cooper would still need to be started, but Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb and TE Dalton Schultz should all be left on the bench if Dalton sits.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup was targeted two times during the Week 7 game against the Washington Football Team but finished the game with zero receptions.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys lost their starting quarterback during the game, so Gallup did not have any success with either quarterback. He has been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks and is a risky option if Ben DiNucci starts next week. Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb was targeted five times during the Week 7 game against the Washington Football Team but finished the game with zero receptions. He did have one carry for one yard during the game.
Huddle Up: Lamb did not have any success with Andy Dalton or Ben DiNucci this week but was targeted at least five times for the seventh straight game. Fantasy players will need to monitor Dallas' quarterback situation during the week because Lamb may only be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if DiNucci starts.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz caught two passes for 22 yards against the Washington Football Team in Week 7. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Schultz was an important part of the passing game earlier this season but has been held to 35 yards or less in each of the last three games. His value may also be hurt by the Cowboys quarterback situation, so fantasy players may want to keep Schultz on the bench for now.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught seven passes for 80 yards against the Washington Football Team in Week 7. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cooper was basically the passing game for Dallas this week since the team only had 114 passing yards during the game. Fantasy players will need to monitor the team's quarterback situation because Cooper's value will take a hit if Bee DiNucci starts. He can still be a starting option next week, but fantasy players may want to lower expectations.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 45 yards on 12 carries against the Washington Football Team in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Elliott did not fumble the ball this week but did not have much success against Washington. He will continue to be a big part of the offense moving forward and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Ben DiNucci went 2-for-3 for 39 yards against the Washington Football Team in Week 7 after QB Andy Dalton (head) left with an injury.
Huddle Up: DiNucci may be the team's starting quarterback in Week 8 depending on Dalton's health and what the team does at the position. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Cowboys quarterback situation until Dalton is healthy.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (head) is being evaluated for a concussion and will not return to the Week 7 game.
Huddle Up: Dalton was hit in the head on a helmet-to-helmet hit and likely will need to be cleared by doctors to play again. Ben DiNucci is in line to be the starter while Dalton is sidelined but should be avoided in all leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup posted two catches for 15 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Gallup definitely wasn't on the same page as new starter Andy Dalton, and he was very far behind Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb for the eye of the quarterback among the wide receivers. He is only worth a look as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 on the road against the Washington Football Team.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz posted five receptions for 35 yards in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals on five targets.
Huddle Up: Schultz was targeted early on by Andy Dalton, but he was barely used in the second half. He has four or more grabs in four of the past five outings, emerging as a respectable TE2 in most fantasy leagues and a decent bye week replacement. The Cowboys travel to meet the Washington Football Team in Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb ended up with seven catches for 64 yards on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Lamb saw his fair share of targets from new starter Andy Dalton, as he takes over for the injured Dak Prescott. The Dallas offense struggled overall, but at least the rookie had decent production for those in PPR formats. He remains a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Washington Football Team.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper registered seven receptions for a team-high 79 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Cooper didn't have a lot of work downfield, as most of his stuff came on the short and intermediate routes with Andy Dalton making his first start of the season for the injured Dak Prescott. Fantasy owners can't be too disappointed about this showing, especially those in PPR leagues. The Cowboys travel to meet the Washington Football Team in Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard ran 10 times for 31 yards and he added two grabs for nine yards on four targets in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Pollard actually had the longest run of the night for Dallas, and he saw a few more touches with starter Ezekiel Elliott losing two fumbles in the first half. Zeke isn't losing his job, so Pollard will only have fantasy appeal in the event of injury.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran 12 time for just 49 yards and he had two fumbles lost in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals. At least he had eight receptions for 31 yards on 11 targets to somewhat salvage the line.
Huddle Up: It was a frustrating game all around for the Dallas offense, as Andy Dalton made his first start under center. Elliott will likely see plenty of short routes out of the backfield to help Dalton, so that's good for his fantasy value, especially in PPR leagues. The Cowboys travel to meet the Washington Football Team in Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton completed 34-of-54 passes for 266 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals and he ran for four yards.
Huddle Up: Dalton struggled mightily in this one and the Cowboys were buried by the Cardinals. The overall stats weren't terrible on paper, but his performance was nowhere near consistent or moderately good. He remains more of a QB2 heading into the Week 7 road game against the Washington Football Team.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is expected to receive the franchise tag again during the offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Prescott will not play again until 2021 because of his leg injury, but it seems like he will be with the Cowboys again. He can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season if he is healthy.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb leads all rookies with 396 receiving yards out of the slot, 11 receptions of 15-plus yards and 20 first-down receptions, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Lamb has quickly emerged as the second-best option in the Cowboys' passing game, managing at least five catches and 59 yards in each of his first five games as a pro. Those benchmarks figure to be a bit harder to hit moving forward with Andy Dalton taking over for Dak Prescott, but Lamb should be the Dallas receiver least affected since slot throws are typically higher-percentage passes than throws to the perimeter. Fantasy owners should expect low-end WR2/high-end WR3 production from him moving forward.

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz caught one of his three targets for six yards in Week 5 versus the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Schultz was quickly entering the low-end TE1 discussion in fantasy circles, but Dak Prescott's season-ending ankle injury figures to bring that to a halt for the most part. Although Andy Dalton is more than serviceable as a starting NFL quarterback, it's unlikely he'll be able to make more than two pass-catchers consistently viable for fantasy. Those two players figure to be Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb most weeks. Consider Schultz a TE2 with some upside in Week 6 versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup caught all four of his targets for 73 yards in Week 5 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: His final line is misleading in that half of his catches and 57 of his yards came on the offense's final two plays of the game preceding Greg Zuerlein's game-winning field goal. It's impossible to know if and/or how the targets will be redistributed in this passing game with Andy Dalton now entrenched as the starter following Dak Prescott's season-ending injury, but Gallup has primarily been a field-stretcher this year. He figures to be a low-floor, high-upside yet again in Week 6 versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught two of his four targets for 23 yards in Week 5 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: It appeared Cooper was being shadowed by James Bradberry for most of the day, which certainly contributed to this dud. Cornerbacks of Bradberry's caliber won't be lining up across from him every week, but the bigger concern moving forward is that Dak Prescott won't be throwing him the ball anymore in 2020. Andy Dalton is a capable quarterback, however, so Cooper's fantasy owners can probably continue to fire him up as a low-end WR1 moving forward, including in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries and hauled in one of his two targets for 14 more yards in Week 5 versus the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Even as his offensive line falls apart in front of him and Dallas consistently finds itself in negative game scripts, Elliott continues to produce. Dak Prescott's season-ending ankle injury should theoretically lead to the offense becoming more Elliott-centric, but the defense has to be able to keep the Cowboys in games long enough for that to happen. Regardless, Elliott will remain a weekly fixture inside the top five fantasy running backs and should be viewed as such in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton came on in relief of an injured Dak Prescott (ankle) and finished 9-of-11 for 111 yards in Week 5 versus the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Dalton took over for Prescott with about 6 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter and deserves credit for hooking up with Michael Gallup on a pair of big plays late to set Dallas up for the game-winning field goal as time expired. Dalton cannot be expected to replicate what Prescott was doing for his fantasy owners, but there's also no question he is now the triggerman for an offense with a dynamic trio of receivers and will have plenty of negative game scripts to play in. He should have a low-end QB1 floor most weeks, including in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) had successful surgery to repair a compound fracture and dislocation of the right ankle, a source said Sunday, Oct. 11. The surgery went 'very well', and the operation was done by a noted foot and ankle doctor to do the repair.
Huddle Up: As long as Prescott is sidelined it will be the Andy Dalton show in Big D. It's more than likely that Prescott is done for the season, although fantasy owners will want to wait until official word comes down before casting him to the waiver wire.
