2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Dallas Cowboys
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Cowboys have some questions marks at running back but the rest of the team looks pretty solid. Dallas might be the favorite to win the division this year and have a shot to come out of the NFC as the Super Bowl representative. There is plenty of talent on both sides of the ball for the Cowboys, giving them double-digit win potential in an unsettled division.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
The Cowboys running back spot isnā??t settled by any means. At this point, we think Joseph Randle brings the most to the table for the team. He averaged a robust 6.7 yards per carry last year and catches the ball pretty well out of the backfield. He can produce big behind this great offensive line if he ends up with the most chances, which is very possible. Randle might be the surest thing out of a very unsure situation in Dallas.
FANTASY DUD
Darren McFadden was signed during the offseason to add some depth at the running back spot. He will get a chance to start this season but if the last few seasons mean anything, donā??t count on McFadden seizing the starting job in Dallas. McFadden has really struggled the past few years and seems to have lost a step from earlier in his career. A fresh start behind a great offensive line is a positive for McFadden, but you canā??t count on him to finally have a career season with the way he has looked the past few years.

Team Notes

Jun 29, 02:22 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden said he's excited to be with the Cowboys and feels like he's a rookie again. McFadden also said the injured hamstring that caused him to miss time this offseason is feeling great.
Jun 27, 07:12 PM Free-agent CB Morris Claiborne may still return to the Dallas Cowboys, after the club declined his fifth-year option. 'I think Claiborne has a real good chance to surprise,' owner Jerry Jones said recently, via the team's official website. Claiborne lost 30-40 pounds this offseason, after having surgery done on both of his knees.
Jun 27, 04:42 PM The agent for Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant met face-to-face with the team for the first time in nearly four months, per sources. Bryant hasn't yet signed his $12.823 million franchise tender, and he has a deadline of July 15 to agree to a long-term deal. After that date Bryant will need to play out the season under the tender and the two sides could discuss an extension after the season.
Jun 25, 02:42 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was present for a Sunday Night Football photo shoot for Week 1 Tuesday, June 23.
Jun 23, 10:02 AM Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle appears to be the clear leader at running back, and it's his job to lose in training camp.

Fantasy Impact: Randle's stock continues to rise as the season draws closer.
Jun 22, 11:32 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams is unlikely to make the 53-man roster projected by beat writer Todd Archer. The team's running backs would be RBs Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar and FB Tyler Clutts.
Jun 18, 04:32 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (elbow) suffered a bruised left elbow during practice Thursday, June 18, but X-rays were negative, according to a source.
Jun 18, 11:42 AM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant arrived for the final day of minicamp Thursday, June 18.

Fantasy Impact: This is a good sign. We don't think this situation will get ugly but we'll keep you updated on the latest info.
Jun 17, 06:13 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is expected to play Week 1 with or without a long-term contract, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said he knows how competitive Bryant is and how much he wants to support his teammates. Jones even believes Bryant will be with the team for training camp in late July. Bryant has until July 15 to sign a long-term deal.
Jun 17, 03:03 PM Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (knee) is attending the team's minicamp this week but is not expected to participate in any of the drills.
Jun 17, 01:33 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is expected to play in the regular season opener, according to owner Jerry Jones.
Jun 17, 12:33 PM Dallas Cowboys FS J.J. Wilcox (foot) is not participating in practice Wednesday, June 17, because of a foot injury. The team hopes Wilcox will be ready for the start of training camp.
Jun 17, 10:23 AM Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) practiced in full Tuesday, June 16. 'I'm 100% and ready to go play ball,' McFadden said. 'It felt great. We were just taking precautions, they didn't want me to mess it up or anything crazy. Just being out there today, it felt great. I was out there running, opening up and just trying to do what I can do.'
Jun 16, 07:13 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's threat to sit out of regular season games if he doesn't receive a long-term extension doesn't have head coach Jason Garrett worried. 'It doesn't concern me one bit,' Garrett said. 'Dez loves football. He has a great passion for the game. He wants to be a great player. He wants our team to be great. He's been working every day to do that and we'll take care of the business as we go.'
Jun 16, 03:23 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is willing to miss more than just the regular season opener if he does not receive a long-term contract extension. There are no talks between the two sides at this juncture.

Fantasy Impact: We would expect the Cowboys to get a deal done but nothing is certain right now. You'll want to keep an eye on this one.
Jun 15, 04:42 PM Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant will not show up for mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 16, as he awaits a long-term deal.
