Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (hip) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s a borderline WR3 against a burnable Eagles secondary on Sunday.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (hip) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. He's evidently on track to play vs. the Eagles this weekend after getting knocked out of last week's win over the 49ers. Gallup actually leads Dallas with 35 targets over the past 5 weeks.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup suffered a hip pointer in Sunday's win over the 49ers, according to the Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken. It's a relatively minor injury, and Gallup hasn't been ruled out for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We'll monitor his status throughout the week. Gallup was a fringy fantasy option at 100%, though, so he probably shouldn't be in your Week 16 plans.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup was knocked out of Sunday's game against the 49ers with a hip injury. He's been replaced by WR Noah Brown. We'll pass along an update on Gallup when we get one.

Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Look for 7th-round rookie QB Ben DiNucci to get the start in that one. He projects as a significant downgrade for Dallas' offense, although it's not like Dalton played well the past 2 weeks.

Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. He seems unlikely to get cleared for Sunday night's game vs. the Eagles after taking a vicious head shot last weekend. Dalton's absence would leave Dallas with QB Ben DiNucci and make all the Cowboys' pass-catchers tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

The Cowboys added Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. He joins Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup in a loaded WR corps. Lamb turned in a brilliant 3-year college career. He made an immediate impact as a true freshman, ranking 3rd on the Sooners behind Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews with 46 catches and 807 yards and tying for 2nd with 7 TDs. Lamb’s numbers grew to 65 catches, 1,158 yards and 11 scores in 2018. And he pumped out a massive 62-1,327-14 line this past year. Lamb’s 15.1 yards per target and 3.99 yards per route run in 2019 were easily tops among 30 of this year’s best WR prospects. The 6’2, 198-pounder is a beast after the catch, ranking top 5 among all draft-eligible players in both missed tackles forced and yards-after-catch average. He’s also a weapon downfield with his long-striding speed and plus ball skills. We see a lot of Demaryius Thomas in Lamb’s game — although DeAndre Hopkins seems to be his most popular comp. Lamb is joining what was 1 of the most efficient passing games in the NFL last year, although he’ll be battling for targets with Cooper and Gallup. QB Dak Prescott’s stock gets a significant boost here.

The Cowboys will name HC Mike McCarthy their new HC, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. An official announcement is expected later this week. McCarthy spent 2006-2018 as Packers HC, compiling a 125-77-2 record, 9 playoff appearances and 1 Super Bowl. He was an OC before that and figures to have a big say in the Cowboys offense. But we'll see who McCarthy brings aboard as his OC.

The Cowboys have fired HC Jason Garrett. The move seemed inevitable but for some reason took until a full week after Dallas' season had ended to happen. Garrett spent the past 13 seasons with the Cowboys as either OC or HC. He finishes with an 85-67 record as HC but had far too many underachieving seasons. 2019 was chief among them, with Dallas going 8-8 despite a loaded roster. We'll see who the Cowboys tab as their new HC. We're also curious to see if they can hang on OC Kellen Moore, who showed promise at times as the play-caller this past year.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffered an AC joint injury in his throwing shoulder in the 1st quarter of Sunday's win over the Rams. Prescott never left that game but attempted just 20 passes over the final 3-and-a-half quarters. HC Jason Garrett said Wednesday that an MRI revealed no structural damage to the shoulder but that Prescott is "not very functional at the moment." Garrett also stopped short of guaranteeing that Prescott will play against the Eagles this weekend, although ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Prescott is expected to play. We'll keep a close eye on the situation over the next few days -- but we just moved Prescott and his WRs down the Week 16 Rankings.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He’s 3 weeks removed from surgery and is expected to be limited in his 1st game back.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is expected to play today, "though it may not be a full workload," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Combine that with a challenging matchup against Green Bay's much-improved pass defense, and Gallup doesn't make for a very attractive fantasy play just 3 weeks beyond knee surgery.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Green Bay after a limited week of practice. Both Gallup and insider Michael Gehlken have said that Gallup will play vs. the Pack. We’d try not to use him in fantasy lineups in his 1st game back from knee surgery, but Gallup’s return is good news for QB Dak Prescott.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is on track to return for Sunday's game against the Packers, according to insider Michael Gehlken. He was reportedly able to do more than expected in Wednesday's practice. "If I feel good, I can keep going," he said afterward. "If I didn't feel good, I was just going to do [individual drills]. It's all on me." We'll see whether Gallup will be limited this weekend, but his return is a nice boost for QB Dak Prescott. It's no coincidence that Prescott averaged 10.9 yards per pass attempt with Gallup over the first 2 games vs. just 7.2 without him over the last 2.

In his weekly radio spot on 105.3 The Fan, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones indicated WR Michael Gallup (knee) could be back as soon as this Sunday against the Packers. "I'm not ruling it out for Sunday," Jones said. We'll certainly keep an eye on Gallup's practice participation this week. Even if he doesn't make it back for the Green Bay game, this is an encouraging sign.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after arthroscopic knee surgery to trim his meniscus. There's no other structural damage to the knee, so it's a pretty basic procedure. WRs Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb should see target boosts with Gallup out. WR Devin Smith, who hauled in all 3 of his targets for 74 yards and a score in the Week 2 win over Washington, is the best bet to slide into Gallup's spot.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup left Sunday's game against the Giants in the 4th quarter because of a knee contusion. Gallup didn't return, but by that time wasn't needed to clinch the win at Washington. We'll look for an update on his status, but this doesn't look like a serious issue.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (illness) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He missed practice on Friday with that illness but should be a full-go today. The rookie is a WR4 with some upside vs. a banged-up Philly secondary.
