Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He played only 48% of the offensive snaps last week and got in 2 limited practices this week. Cooper is a risk/reward WR2 in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He sat out Wednesday with what he described as knee “tightness” and then was limited on Thursday and Friday. We haven’t heard anything about his workload being reduced today.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Giants today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Cooper played through this injury last week and got in 2 limited practices this week. Still, he comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is expected to play vs. the Giants today. Zeke sat out Wednesday's practice with what he called knee "tightness" but returned to limited workouts on Thursday and Friday. We've heard nothing to suggest that he'll be limited today.

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 WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants after getting in 2 limited practices. He returned to last week’s game after hurting that hamstring but ended up playing just 48% of Dallas’ offensive snaps. Cooper is a risk/reward WR2 in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He sat out Wednesday with what he described as knee “tightness” and then was limited on Thursday and Friday. Zeke is expected to play on Sunday but comes with elevated risk in Week 5 fantasy lineups. RB Tony Pollard could pick up extra volume.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He played through this injury last week -- although he posted a 48% route rate. It'd be nice to see Cooper get in a full workout on Friday.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He sat out on Wednesday with what he called knee "tightness," but it doesn't look like anything that will impact his status for this weekend's game vs. the Giants. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He returned to last week's game after hurting the hammy but ended up playing just 48% of Dallas' offensive snaps. We'll keep an eye on his status over the next few days, but he's shaping up as a risk/reward Week 5 fantasy play.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott missed Wednesday's practice with what he described as knee "tightness." He added that he feels "3 times" better today than he did on Monday. He expects to return to practice on Thursday and play vs. the Giants this weekend. This is obviously a situation to keep a close eye on over the next few days, but Zeke can stay penciled into Week 5 fantasy lineups for now

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.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper appeared to injure his right hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Cooper returned to the game.

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory (knee) is active for today's game against the Panthers. He's not a high-end IDP option but is available if he was in your plans.

Cowboys S Donovan Wilson has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. It'll be his 3rd straight game missed with the groin injury. Fill-in Jayron Kearse sits 23rd among 131 safeties in Pro Football Focus grade and might not cede the job back to Wilson when Wilson is healthy again. DE Randy Gregory is questionable with a knee injury. He popped up on the injury report after missing practice Thursday, then put in a limited Friday workout.

Cowboys S Donovan Wilson (groin) is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Eagles. That leaves Jayron Kearse to start in his place again. There's some upside to Kearse for deeper IDP leagues.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (rib) is not listed on the final injury report. So he'll play against the Eagles on Monday night but will do so with a cracked rib. That obviously adds risk to his fantasy profile. But Cooper's ceiling makes him tough to bench.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (rib) was listed as a full participant in Friday's practice. That's pretty much confirmation that he'll play through his cracked rib on Monday night vs. the Eagles. He obviously carries more risk than usual with that injury, but there's still loads of upside here.
