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.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb suffered an ankle injury in Wednesday's practice, HC Mike McCarthy said. Lamb is expected to be limited on Thursday. The fact that he'll be out there at all is encouraging, but we'll need to keep an eye on him leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Broncos.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice. HC Mike McCarthy previously said that he expects Prescott to be a full-go on Thursday. We'll see if that comes to fruition. Prescott is fully expected back for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that he expects QB Dak Prescott (calf) to be a "full go" for Thursday's practice, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That should certainly put Prescott on track to face the Broncos -- now down top pass rusher Von Miller -- on Sunday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was "really, really close to playing" vs. the Vikings on Sunday night. It's "looking good" for Prescott to return for Week 9 vs. the Broncos, Rapoport adds. We'll track Prescott's practice participation this week.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Vikings. He was seemingly close to playing, but Dallas is playing it safe here. We’re expecting Prescott back next week. QB Cooper Rush makes his 1st career start tonight -- a clear downgrade for Cowboys pass catchers.

Both ESPN and NFL Network report that Dak Prescott plans to work out before Sunday night's game against the Vikings to determine whether he can play. Adam Schefter adds, though, that "some within the organization believe" Cooper Rush will start the game after taking team reps in practice this week. Barring some further update ahead of the early games, waiting for Prescott will be a risky move for your fantasy football lineups today.

The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken tweets, "It would surprise many close to situation if Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) starts Sunday vs. Vikings." On top of his calf issue, Prescott left the team on Friday following the death of his grandmother. He's back with the team now and traveled to Minnesota. But Gehlken notes that backup QB Cooper Rush saw the "most meaningful reps" of the practice week. At this point, we're leaning toward Prescott missing Sunday night's game. But we'll see if we get a more concrete update on Sunday morning.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott reportedly said he expected a decision following Saturday's practice on whether he'll start Sunday night against the Vikings. ESPN's Ed Werder, however, says 2 sources have called it a game-time decision. He quoted one as saying, "We are literally going to take it into tomorrow (night)." If it's truly a game-time decision for Sunday night, that would take the call beyond when most other QBs are starting their games. Waiting on Prescott will bring some risk this week.

49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) is not listed on the final injury report and will return for Sunday's game against the Bears. QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but Lance could steal a handful of snaps.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Vikings. He was limited in practice all week. Prescott felt and looked good in practice by all accounts, but he’s admitted that the team has the final say on whether he plays Sunday night. That decision is expected to be made on Saturday. QB Cooper Rush will make his 1st career start if Prescott is out. Stay tuned.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said QB Dak Prescott (calf) was sore on Friday after ramping up his work in Thursday's practice. McCarthy was non-committal on Prescott's status for Sunday night's game vs. the Vikings. Owner Jerry Jones remains optimistic. "I’d like to think Dak can go and will think that," Jones said. "We’ll see how things work at practice, but I’d say things are looking good right now about Dak.” Prescott seems 50/50 to play at this point. QB Cooper Rush will make his 1st career start on Sunday night if Prescott is out.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was again listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. “Today, I pushed it. I didn’t go half or 75%," he said afterward, before admitting that his status for Sunday night's game vs. the Vikings remains uncertain. “It’s not fully my decision because there is a bigger picture. It’s more than just one game ... I don’t want this to linger past this week.” Prescott expects the decision to be made on Saturday. Stay tuned.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice. "He's going to practice and he's going to go through the individual part of it and he's in the game plans. He's preparing to play," HC Mike McCarthy said beforehand. "He's got to cross the threshold to make sure he's full-go." Prescott remains likely -- but not a lock -- to play against the Vikings on Sunday night. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) remains on track to play vs. the Vikings next Sunday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Prescott will be held out of Monday's light workout but is expected to practice on Wednesday. "The team will monitor him closely to make sure he's moving like himself and not putting himself at risk of a relatively minor issue turning into something more," Rapoport adds. We'll keep a close eye on Prescott this coming week.

49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) was limited and is expected to be a full-go later this week, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Garoppolo remains in line to start Sunday night's game vs. the Colts.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is "looking good" after Monday's MRI on his calf. "They got good news," Rapoport adds. Prescott gets a Week 7 bye, and it sounds like he'll be ready to go come Week 8.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott downplayed his calf injury after Sunday's overtime win in New England. "I’ll be fine," Prescott said. "I’ve got a lot of confidence in myself and the medical team. I feel good ... It doesn’t hurt as bad, obviously, when you score and win the game. I just came down funny and didn’t like what I felt.” Prescott was in a walking boot after the game, though, and walking with a "significant limp," according to The Athletic's Jon Machota. He's schedule for an MRI on Monday, so we should learn more soon. Prescott gets a perfectly timed Week 7 bye.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was in a walking boot after Sunday's win over the Patriots because of a calf strain he suffered in the game. Prescott reportedly assured reports that he'll be "fine." We'll obviously watch his progress. Dallas gets a well-timed Week 7 bye to help him get past it.

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

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He was limited in practice all week, but we never heard any concern about his status. Use Zeke in fantasy lineups as you normally would.
