2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Dallas Cowboys
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

Expectations are always high in Dallas and this year will be no different. The team finished .500 last year and will be expected to do much better this coming season. They should contend for a playoff spot but probably don't have enough on defense to make a long run into the players. Their offense will be one of the best in the game as long as Tony Romo comes back strong from his back injury.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Terrance Williams has a good shot for a big season, moving into a starting role opposite Dez Bryant. Williams flashed some big-game potential last season and should be able to build on that his second season in the league. He'll start from day one and play in an offense that throws often. Plus, Jason Witten is another year older and nearing the end of the line, so Williams is a good bet to be the second best target in this offense going forward. Williams could be hit or miss for fantasy teams but will be capable of the big game any given week.
FANTASY DUD
Jason Witten seems to just keep chugging along but started to show some signs of slowing down last season. He had his lowest reception total since 2006 last season. He is 32 years old and been a very durable, dependably player throughout his career, so he has a lot of wear and tear on his body. Another dip in production this season could happen, making him a guy that probably won't live up to his draft position this year.

Team Notes

Jul 30, 01:33 AM Dallas Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (foot) suffered a broken foot Tuesday, July 29, and he will need eight to 10 weeks recovery time, according to a source.
Jul 29, 09:03 PM Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (illness) left practice early Tuesday, July 29, because of a stomach virus.
Jul 29, 07:33 PM Dallas Cowboys DT Terrell McClain (ankle), OG Ronald Leary (hamstring) OG Darius Morris (undisclosed), LB William Smith (undisclosed), DE Ben Gardner (shoulder), CB Brandon Carr (personal), DT Amobi Okoye (illness) and DE Anthony Spencer (knee) did not practice Tuesday, July 29.
Jul 29, 07:13 PM Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (undisclosed) went to the locker room with doctors Tuesday, July 29. Stay tuned for an update.
Jul 29, 06:53 PM Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) thinks he will return from his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee completely healthy. Lee is with the team in California for his rehab, and it's possible he could travel with the team for road games in the regular season. 'He's doing his rehab to get himself ready, but he's completely integrated with our football team,' head coach Jason Garrett said. 'I can't think of a better guy to be in that role. He just embraces every chance he gets to be that much better.'
Jul 29, 06:13 PM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will miss the team's second practice Tuesday, July 29, as he continues to recover from a herniated disc.
Jul 29, 05:43 PM Dallas Cowboys FS Matt Johnson (hamstring) will sit at least one week while recovering from a hamstring injury suffered Sunday, July 27.
Jul 28, 11:23 PM Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar has often lined up out wide during training camp, and offensive play-caller Scott Linehan is experimenting with different ways to get him involved in the offense.

Fantasy Impact: This is good news for Escobar but nothing is certain with him right now.
Jul 28, 03:02 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams looks to be a longshot for the final roster, because he is not a good special teams player and would have to help on special teams if he is in a reserve role.
Jul 28, 02:43 PM Dallas Cowboys OG Mackenzy Bernadeau has been working at left guard with the first-team offense, because OG Ronald Leary (hamstring) has been dealing with a hamstring injury. Bernadeau and Leary are expected to compete for the starting job during training camp.
Jul 28, 02:13 PM Dallas Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer (knee) said he hopes to be able to play once the regular season begins. He said he is encouraged about how his rehab has been going.
Jul 28, 12:02 AM Dallas Cowboys FS Jeff Heath (hand) left practice early Sunday, July 27, because of a hand injury but was able to return.
Jul 28, 12:02 AM Dallas Cowboys DT Terrell McClain (ankle), LB DeVonte Holloman (dehydration) and FS Matt Johnson (hamstring) left practice early Sunday, July 27, because of injuries.
Jul 27, 10:59 AM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will sit out practice Friday, July 25 as part of a preplanned day off, according to Jason Garrett. Romo is scheduled to take all the first-team reps Saturday, July 26. 'We talked about this beforehand with all of our players. Whenever they are coming back, to be mindful of the two-a-days and what they are doing. You are out here for an hour. It doesn't seem like much. It's a walk through situation. But you warm up for that, cool down and get started again in the afternoon, Garrett said. We just wanted to make sure we are careful on the two-a-days and then the consecutive two-a-days. I think the schedule sets up pretty well for him the next few days. It gives him a chance to get himself settled in. We will keep an eye on him every day.'
Jul 26, 11:12 PM Dallas Cowboys DE Ben Gardner (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during practice Saturday, July 26, and is scheduled to undergo an MRI.
Jul 26, 03:52 PM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will practice Saturday, July 26, for the first time since his back surgery, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
