Cowboys multi-use weapon Micah Parsons is questionable for Monday night’s game against the Giants because of an illness. He missed the 1st days of practice but returned for limited participation Saturday. Parsons is worth waiting for if you can secure an insurance option. LBs Leighton Vander Esch and Tae Crowder stand as the top 2 replacements for IDP lineups

Cowboys S Jayron Kearse sprained his left MCL in Sunday night's loss to the Buccaneers. Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports that the team expects him to miss 2-4 games. That will put Donovan Wilson into the starting lineup while Kearse is out. Wilson supplied 5 tackles, 1 QB hit and an INT against Tampa Bay and has delivered starter-level fantasy numbers in the past (before Kearse claimed his gig).

Cowboys S Jayron Kearse popped up on the injury report as questionable at the end of the week after missing Friday's practice with a neck injury. The Sunday night kickoff makes it tough to wait for him in IDP lineups.

The Cowboys selected DE Sam Williams in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. Williams sports plenty of on-field potential. After 2 solid years at Ole Miss, he delivered 57 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles in his final campaign. Williams then delivered a 99th-percentile speed score at 6'4, 261 pounds. He may have fallen in the draft for off-field issues. Williams lands in a Dallas defense with immediate opportunity on the edge and looks like a high-upside pick for IDP dynasty rookie drafts.

The Cowboys are bringing S Malik Hooker back on a 2-year, $8 million deal, according to multiple reports. Hooker operated as the 3rd/4th safety in his 1st season with Dallas on a 1-year deal that paid him just $920,000. The new contract points to Hooker likely elevating to a starting role in 2022. Expect him to take over Damontae Kazee's spot. We'll see whether the team retains Jayron Kearse for the other safety spot. Hooker has yet to prove useful for most IDP formats -- even when he was healthy with the Colts.

The Cowboys on Friday downgraded CB Trevon Diggs and S Jayron Kearse from questionable to out. The Dallas secondary will also be without CB Anthony Brown, who landed on the COVID list. These are good developments for the DFS upside of Eagles QB Gardner Minshew and whichever WRs are playing Saturday

Cowboys LB Micah Parsons tested positive for COVID Wednesday. The Saturday night kickoff would seem to make it difficult for him to make it back, but we're not yet seeing Parsons reported as being out for the game. If he does miss the regular-season finale, then LBs Leighton Vander Esch and Keanu Neal should see playing-time boosts. Vander Esch would be our preferred IDP play.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that his team will play its starters in Saturday night's regular-season finale at Philadelphia. "We're going to line up to do what we need to do to win the game," McCarthy told reporters, according to The Athletic's Jon Machota. We wouldn't be shocked if RB Ezekiel Elliott gets the night off to rest his knee, or if the Eagles decide to rest starters and thus present a light challenge. For now, though, you should assume that any active Cowboys on your fantasy football roster will be going in Week 18.

The Cowboys have designated DE Randy Gregory -- and DT Neville Gallimore (elbow) -- to return from IR. Executive VP Stephen Jones says "unless there is a setback," both players are expected to play Sunday against Washington, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. Gregory has been out since suffering a calf injury in practice ahead of Week 10. He'll be an upside DL option for IDP lineups if he's ready for Week 14, though.

The Cowboys have designated DE Demarcus Lawrence to return from IR, and Jon Machota of The Athletic reports that he's expected to play Thursday night against the Saints. Lawrence has been out fracturing his left foot in practice leading up to Week 2. We'd hold him out of IDP lineups until seeing at least a game back from the veteran. The Cowboys will not get DE Randy Gregory back for Thursday night's game. He's on IR with a calf injury. We'll see about his Week 14 chances.

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory suffered a calf injury in Wednesday's practice that is expected to cost him multiple games, ESPN's Todd Archer reports. HC Mike McCarthy said IR is a possibility. The injury likely means we'll see rookie LB Micah Parsons play more DE while Gregory is out.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs (ankle) and DE Randy Gregory (knee) are active for today’s game against the Patriots. S Damontae Kazee (hip) and S Donovan Wilson (groin) are also active. We’d still bet on Jayron Kearse keeping the starting gig that once belonged to Wilson

The Cowboys expect CB Trevon Diggs to play through the questionable tag for his sprained ankle today against the Patriots, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. An active Diggs should probably be in IDP lineups. We'll confirm his status when the late-game inactives come out. Other questionable Dallas defenders: DE Randy Gregory (knee), S Damontae Kazee (hip) and S Donovan Wilson (groin).

The Cowboys expect DE Randy Gregory (knee) to play today against the Patriots. He's officially questionable, so we'll update his status when inactives come out around 3 p.m. ET.

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory is active for today's game against the Giants. He entered questionable, but HC Mike McCarthy indicated Friday that he expected Gregory to play.

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants with a knee injury. HC Mike McCarthy expressed "no concern" about his availability, though, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs left Sunday's win over the Panthers. NFL.com reports he was merely dealing with back tightness, which doesn't sound like a serious issue. We'll see about his status or the Week 5 clash with the Giants.
