Dallas Cowboys Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) is expected back for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints. Lamb couldn't quite get cleared for the Thanksgiving game against the Raiders but should pass protocol soon, barring a setback. WR Amari Cooper is also eligible to come off the COVID list before the Saints game.

The Cowboys will consider giving RB Ezekiel Elliott some time off to help the bone bruise in his knee heal, ESPN's Ed Werder reports. Werder specifically mentions Zeke being held out of next Thursday night's game vs. the Saints. He adds that IR is not being considered "at this time." HC Mike McCarthy admitted earlier on Friday that he's concerned about Elliott's situation. "Zeke's running style is ferocious," McCarthy said. "He gives a pounding, and he takes some hits. We need to evaluate that, and this week we'll see what the preparation looks like for him." We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but Elliott owners should start preparing for him to miss Week 13. Tony Pollard will be a RB1 whenever Zeke sits.

The bone bruise to Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's knee is expected to linger for the rest of the season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones mentioned after Thursday's loss to the Raiders that the team will need to alter the game plan to reduce Zeke's volume going forward. We saw that on Thanksgiving, with Elliott handling 9 carries and 8 targets to RB Tony Pollard's 10 carries and 4 targets. We'll keep a close eye on this split in coming weeks. But, for now, consider Elliott more of a high-end RB2 and Pollard a viable RB3 or flex play.
