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.

May 25, 03:33 PM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) isn't worried about his long-term future and thinks he can play four or five more years. He also said he feels 'ahead of the game' in his offseason work. Quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said Romo has looked 'phenomenal' in offseason workouts.
May 25, 03:23 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) will have more X-rays on his injured right foot soon, and he hopes to participate more as the offseason progresses. Bryant admitted that he needs to be patient during his recovery, but said he feels great. He did participate in the early part of organized team activities Wednesday, May 25, before his rehabilitation.
May 20, 03:33 PM Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee) will be used at middle linebacker when he is healthy enough to play.
May 20, 12:03 PM Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee) signed his four-year, $6.494 million rookie deal Friday, May 20. He will receive a $2.9 million signing bonus. Smith will likely open training camp on the non-football injury list and could miss his entire rookie season.
May 19, 04:53 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams is in the final year of his rookie contract, but he's focused on the upcoming season, not a possible extension or new team. 'Now, I'm just ready to be quiet and work and let my play speak for [itself],' Williams said. 'You can always talk [about] what you're going to do and then if it doesn't go as planned, it's like a slap to your face. So I'm just ready to work and just show my play.'
May 18, 03:03 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott signed his rookie four-year deal Wednesday, May 18, worth $24.9 million. The deal includes a $16.3 million signing bonus. All first-round picks have a fifth-year option in their deals.
May 18, 11:23 AM Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) will not take part in organized team activities next week, but he hasn't suffered any setbacks. He has done well with the conditioning and individual work so far. He is running full speed and is on pace to be ready for training camp in July.
May 13, 12:13 PM Free-agent DE Greg Hardy (Cowboys) is having trouble finding a team, and the prevailing opinion from general managers around the league is that no one wants him.
May 12, 04:23 PM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) has not had any issues physically so far during the Cowboys' offseason program, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Garrett said that Romo has almost completely integrated back into the offseason program, adding that Romo's back is feeling well, his shoulder seems fine, he's moving around well and he's made a lot of progress. Owner Jerry Jones said there's nothing negative about where Romo is in his current state. 'Everything they hoped to accomplish technically from appraisal of surgery has gone well. Everything he's done regarding his strength, everything regarding what he's wanted to do, he's been able to do,' Jones said.
May 11, 10:13 PM Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot, ankle) is still not quite 100 percent recovered from right foot and ankle surgeries in January, and he was limited to nine games in 2015. Executive vice president Stephen Jones issued a challenge Wednesday, May 11. 'I think one of the tough things about last year for Dez, he plays with such energy, that with the contract dispute, if you will, he wasn't around, which is business, and consequently he probably wasn't in the best shape going into the season and then you start to add the injuries when players aren't in shape and they continued on through training camp and then on into the season and we ended up not having him much last year, so if he can get his rehab done and get himself in top condition, then I think we'll see the same Dez that we saw two years ago,' Jones said.
May 10, 01:03 PM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has recovered ahead of the eight weeks at the back end of his recovery timetable, and he's expected to be a full participant in offseason practices later this month. 'He's looking good,' quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. 'We had two practices where we've been out here on the field with the guys and he's done everything. He's throwing, he's got good velocity on all of his throws, great movement in his legs. He looks like he's re-energized because he hadn't played, you know, missed the majority of the season. So he's real energized and anxious to get going.'
May 10, 09:04 AM Dallas Cowboys DE Charles Tapper might get a chance to play more than most Day 3 draft picks, as DEs Randy Gregory and Demarcus Lawrence are facing penalties for off-field indiscretions.

May 09, 01:33 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) is making good progress in his recovery from foot surgery and has not suffered any setbacks, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
