2016 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Dallas Cowboys
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Cowboys had all sorts of injuries last year, which really hurt the team much of the year. Dallas should be considered the favorite to win their division. They have the most talent on both sides of the ball. The key might be keeping some aging players healthy. Plus, the pass rush needs to do a better job to help a secondary that isn't the best. Dallas should be considered a playoff contender but aren't in that elite group of NFL teams.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
He is a rookie but Ezekiel Elliott is setup for a huge fantasy season. He should start from day one and serve as a three-down back in this offense. We all saw what DeMarco Murray did behind this offense line a few years back, which bodes well for Elliott. He is just as talent as Murray and might even be a little more explosive. Elliott has a chance to be a real special fantasy player, starting this year.
FANTASY DUD
He hasn't slowed down much yet but it has to happen sooner than later. Jason Witten continues to produce for fantasy teams but his numbers are showing a dip. We could see a bigger dip this year. He got his catches last year but his yardage numbers weren't great for all his work and he scored just three touchdowns. Don't draft Witten based on past seasons. He isn't that player at this stage of his career.

Team Notes

Jun 16, 04:13 PM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) said he's throwing as well as he ever has as he continues to recover from a broken collarbone and subsequent offseason surgery. He and the Cowboys will go over his schedule in training camp, and he may continue to take Wednesdays off depending on how his throwing feels each day. Romo did acknowledge that he can't ignore his injury history.
Jun 15, 08:33 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) said he will be ready for the start of training camp. Bryant said he plans to work out with QB Tony Romo in the near future.
Jun 15, 02:33 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott took all the first-team repetitions in practice Tuesday, June 14, with RB Darren McFadden (elbow) out with a fractured elbow for two months. Elliott will remain the starting running back for all intents and purposes. 'I think it's going to be real big for him, really beneficial, because now he's forced to go in and do it,' running backs coach Gary Brown said of Elliott getting more first-team snaps. 'He's forced to go in there to perform and perform at a high level. He can't rest on his leader maybe helping him a little bit. He has to rest on himself. So it's going to be a good thing.' Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan called Elliott 'a full-package running back.'

Fantasy Impact: All the reps should be a good thing for Elliot, heading into his rookie season.
Jun 15, 02:13 PM Dallas Cowboys DE Benson Mayowa (knee) underwent surgery on his knee this week.
Jun 14, 12:43 PM Updating an earlier report, Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) required surgery on a broken elbow after he was injured in an accident at home. McFadden is expected to miss two months and be ready by the end of training camp.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't good news but it could have been worse. He seems on track to be ready for the start of the year, serving as the backup for the Cowboys.
Jun 14, 12:23 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) underwent surgery on his elbow Tuesday, June 14, and is expected back in time for the season opener, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Jun 14, 12:03 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) will not be a full participant in minicamp this week, and he'll mostly work on the side.
Jun 13, 02:33 PM Free-agents CB Isaiah Frey (Steelers) and FS Daxton Swanson (Patriots) signed with the Dallas Cowboys Monday, June 13. Frey and Swanson replace CBs Terrance Mitchell and Brandon McGee, who were waived Friday, June 10.
Jun 12, 09:43 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden called RB Ezekiel Elliott an 'awesome runner' and said he is going to show him the ropes while still competing with Elliott for touches.
Jun 12, 09:43 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden called RB Ezekiel Elliott an 'awesome runner' and said he is going to show him the ropes while still competing with Elliott for touches.
Jun 09, 07:33 PM Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) said he would be shocked if he was not ready for the start of training camp. Lee believes he's on pace to be on the field when that time comes.
Jun 08, 08:23 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) was able to participate in some individual drills during practice Tuesday, June 7.
Jun 08, 08:13 PM Dallas Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (knee) was able to participate in some individual drills during practice Tuesday, June 7, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Jun 08, 06:33 PM Free-agents LB Brandon Hepburn (Eagles) and OT Bryan Witzmann (Saints) were signed by the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday, June 8.
Jun 05, 03:03 PM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) believes last year's broken collarbone will turn out to be an anomaly. Romo is focused on the team performing better. He believes part of that is him being healthy and teammates improving.
Jun 03, 05:23 PM Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) may not practice until training camp after he underwent knee surgery earlier this offseason.
