Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb put in a limited practice Friday after sitting out Thursday with a groin issue. Jon Machota of The Athletic reports that Lamb had an MRI "to make sure it wasn't anything significant" and got "good results." Lamb is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, but Machota says he's expected to play. Plan on using Lamb in your fantasy football lineups, but try to secure an insurance option in case he turns up inactive.

Cowboys WR Ceedee Lamb sat out Thursday's practice with a groin issue, but it doesn't sound like he's in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Rams. "I'm fine. I'm good. I don't want to scare nobody," he said, per Yahoo's Jori Epstein. We'll watch for his Friday status.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted Tuesday that QB Dak Prescott (thumb) still can't grip the football well enough to play. That sure doesn't sound like a guy who will be ready to start an NFL game on Sunday. Look for QB Cooper Rush to be under center again vs. the Rams. We'll see if Prescott can make it back for Week 6

Texans WR Brandin Cooks caught all 7 targets for 57 yards and a score in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. It was nice fantasy efficiency after an erratic start to the season. He'll get a potentially challenging matchup with the Jaguars before a Week 6 bye.

Cowboys WR Ceedee Lamb led the team in targets (8), receptions (6) and yards (97) and caught 1 of Cooper Rush's 2 TD passes in Sunday's win over the Commanders. That marked a 29.6% share of Rush's total pass attempts. WR Noah Brown (6) was the only other Cowboy to see more than 3 targets. He caught 3 balls for 61 yards before leaving with a neck injury. WR Michael Gallup made his season debut -- coming off the ACL tear at the end of last year -- and posted a 2-24-1 line on 3 targets. TE Dalton Schultz played through the knee issue that cost him Week 3 and caught none of his 3 targets.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott tallied 81 scoreless yards in Sunday's win over the Commanders. He took 19 carries for 49 yards (2.6 per rush) and caught both of his targets for 32 yards. Nearly all of that (31) came on a single play. The 21 opportunities, however, marked Elliott's largest total and greatest share of his split with Tony Pollard through 4 games. Elliott garnered 65.6% of their combined opportunities (carries + targets) against Washington. That followed shares of 60%, 54.8% and 53.3% the first 3 weeks. We'll how that work split proceeds. Pollard managed only 6 rushing yards on 8 carries against Washington and 2 yards on his lone catch among 3 targets. He's not usable in most fantasy football formats right now.

Cowboys S Jayron Kearse (knee) is inactive for the 3rd straight game. That leaves Donovan Wilson as a strong starter against a pass-leaning Washington offense that arrives as an underdog.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is "eyeing" next week's game against the Rams for a "possible" return from his thumb injury. We'll certainly be tracking the QB's status throughout the week. The combo of surgery on his throwing thumb and a good defense on the other side of that matchup would have us wary of playing Prescott in fantasy football lineups right away.

Cowboys S Jayron Kearse is questionable for Sunday's game against the Commanders. He missed the past 2 games with a knee sprain but returned to practice this week. If Kearse can't go, then S Donovan Wilson becomes an IDP lineup consideration in his place.

Cowboys S Jayron Kearse has put in 2 straight limited practices this week, his 1st action since spraining his left MCL in the opener. If Kearse is ready to return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Washington, it would likely mean a large decrease in playing time for S Donovan Wilson. We'll see about Kearse's game status after Friday's workout.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott had the stitches removed from his surgically repaired thumb but still has swelling, HC Mike McCarthy said Tuesday. Once that subsides, Prescott will need to regain strength in the thumb. Then he can resume throwing. “I do not have a timeline for when he will start throwing," McCarthy admitted. Prescott and the team have been overly optimistic about his return timeline recently. We still think Week 6 is his earliest possible return.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb tallied 8 grabs for 87 yards and 1 score in a Week 3 win over the Giants. His 12 targets easily led the team and represented a 38.7% share from Cooper Rush. He dropped an easy downfield ball before halftime, but fantasy owners can’t really complain about his production. The young WR has now tallied lines of 6-112 (2021), 7-75 and 8-87-1 in 3 starts with Rush. Dak Prescott (thumb) might only be a couple of weeks away from returning, and Lamb will clearly remain a fantasy starter in the meantime. Next up is a divisional tilt with Washington.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott told ESPN's Lisa Salters that he expects to be back from his thumb injury in a couple of weeks. He intimated that could be as soon as Week 4 against Washington. We'd bet on Week 5 actually being the earliest. Prescott did get stitches removed from the injured hand Monday, though. ESPN's Todd Archer reports that the QB's grip strength will play a big part in determining when he can get back into the lineup. We'll keep watching Prescott's progress.

Cowboys whirlwind Micah Parsons is active for tonight's game against the Giants. He entered the day questionable because of an illness but should be in any IDP lineups where possible.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks (toe) is active for today's game against the Lions. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

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 QB Dak Prescott (thumb) was out on the practice field Thursday "gripping and throwing a training ball," according to insider Michael Gehlken. Prescott isn't taking snaps or throwing yet, but he's clearly progressing well from surgery to repair his fractured right thumb. Prescott has not been placed on IR, and the Cowboys reportedly believe he could return for Week 4 or 5. We're skeptical but will continue to keep a close eye on his status.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero confirms that 49ers QB Trey Lance will miss the rest of the 2022 season after undergoing ankle surgery on Monday morning. Lance suffered a fractured and dislocated ankle, Pelissero reports. It's similar although slightly less severe than the injury Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffered in October 2020. Prescott was fully cleared for the start of training the following summer and played Week 1, but it's worth remember that he set a career-low in rushing yards per game in 2021. We'll monitor Lance's rehab and hope he quickly regains his mobility.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports 49ers QB Trey Lance suffered a "significant" right ankle injury in the Week 2 win over the Seahawks. Lance is expected to need surgery that will "likely" end his season. You can hang on to him on fantasy rosters until we get official confirmation that Lance's season is over, which figures to come tomorrow. San Francisco will turn back to QB Jimmy Garoppolo, which will mean a significant shift in the offense. The 49ers' pass rate will climb, and there will be more carries to go around since Garoppolo won't be taking many.

49ers QB Trey Lance injured his right leg in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. He had to be carted off the field and is obviously done for the day. We'll pass along an update when we get one. QB Jimmy Garoppolo has entered for the 'Niners.
