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

Apr 26, 10:53 AM Free-agent DT Nick Hayden (Cowboys) visited the Seattle Seahawks recently.
Apr 25, 07:43 PM Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr has agreed to accept a pay cut and is now expected to make around $6 million in base salary in 2016. He was scheduled to make $9.1 million in 2016 and have a cap hit of $13.8 million.
Apr 25, 01:23 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) likely will be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at some point next season.
Apr 20, 11:53 PM The Dallas Cowboys might be interested in free-agent CB Josh Norman (Panthers) after CBs Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne posted zero interceptions in the calendar year.

Apr 19, 01:53 PM Dallas Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (knee) has yet to be cleared for offseason workouts. 'I'm doing great, phenomenal,' Scandrick said in a conference call with the local media. 'We have a great plan in place and I expect to be ready for training camp.' Scandrick's goal is to be ready for Week 1.
Apr 18, 11:33 AM Dallas Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (knee) is unlikely to do much during organized team activities and minicamps, but he should be ready for training camp.
Apr 17, 08:53 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris said he doesn't care what his role will be in 2016, and he is looking forward to the opportunity to play for the Cowboys.
Apr 16, 09:43 PM Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said drafting a quarterback with the No. 4 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft could be 'problematic' if QB Tony Romo stays injury free in the coming years. 'If he plays uninterrupted then you've got a problem if you've picked quarterback this year because you don't know what you got really at a time when he may be entering the markets,' Jones said.
Apr 16, 01:13 PM Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) said he has been throwing fully for a week and a half to two weeks in his rehabilitation, adding that the experience has been good.
Apr 13, 10:33 PM Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten played in all 16 games for a 12th straight season in 2015, and despite four quarterbacks last season he managed to snag a team-high 77 receptions. Witten came off the field for a total of seven snaps out of a possible 1,019 plays.
Apr 13, 10:23 PM Dallas Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim appeared in four games as a rookie with just one pass reception, playing a total of 23 snaps. He played two games in December once TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') was injured, and could start out as the No. 3 tight end on the depth chart if Escobar isn't ready to start the 2016 season.
Apr 13, 10:23 PM Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') continues to rehab from a torn Achilles' tendon suffered last December. His recovery could extend into the start of the 2016 regular season, as a timeline for his return is not yet known. He might begin the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
Apr 13, 10:23 PM Dallas Cowboys TE James Hanna elected to return the team after entering unrestricted free agency in March. He hasn't been a major factor in the passing game in the past, but he is viewed as a solid blocker who is an underrated asset in the running game. With TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' in December, and a question mark for the season, Hanna could have a big role.
Apr 13, 12:33 PM Dallas Cowboys restricted free-agent FS Jeff Heath re-signed to a four-year deal with the Cowboys Wednesday, April 13, according to his agent, Derrick Fox.
Apr 11, 05:23 PM Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) doesn't know when he'll be able to return to action after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and patella tendon last season. There is a chance Dunbar may not be healthy enough in time for the start of the regular season, and he could be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
