Most Recent Shark Bites

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) will be limited in practice on Wednesday, HC Mike McCarthy said. That presumably puts Zeke on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We might see him and Tony Pollard share backfield work like they did in Week 14 -- especially after Pollard's big outing vs. the 49ers last week.

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 LB Leighton Vander Esch and S Xavier Woods left Sunday's win over the 49ers with injuries. Vander Esch injured an ankle, which will require a Monday MRI. Woods sustained a rib injury. We'll see about the status of both defensive starters heading into next Sunday's matchup with Philadelphia. Neither is more than a low-level IDP option at this point, though.

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 He's been replaced by WR Noah Brown.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 RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. It’s a surprise after reports all week that he’d play through the calf injury again. His absence today leaves Tony Pollard in a feature role. It’s a tough matchup behind a beat-up offensive line, but projected volume has Pollard in the RB2 mix.

The Cowboys on Saturday activated CB Trevon Diggs (foot) from IR. The rookie missed the past 4 games after sustaining a hairline fracture in his left foot. We'll try to find out how much Diggs is expected to play against the 49ers today. If he's back to full playing time, Diggs would be a nice option for DB spots in IDP lineups. The fact that Dallas had replacement CBs Saivion Smith (IR) and Rashard Robinson (questionable) go down with injuries last week can only help Diggs' chances.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is expected to play vs. the 49ers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "It’s just a matter of how effective he’ll be," Rapoport adds. Zeke totaled just 59 yards on 14 touches in a plus matchup against the Bengals last week. He's just a RB3 today

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) was listed as "did not practice" all week. He's officially questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. It sounds like Zeke will continue to battle through this calf injury, but note that he tallied 12 carries and 3 targets last week to Tony Pollard’s 11 carries and 2 targets. We could see a similar split on Sunday. Elliott is no better than a RB3 or flex play.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy "expressed confidence" Monday that CB Trevon Diggs, CB Chidobe Awuzie and S Donovan Wilson will return to practice Wednesday. Wilson missed the past 2 games with a groin injury. Diggs has been on IR since a Week 9 foot fracture but is eligible to return whenever he proves ready. Awuzie missed last week's game on the COVID list. Diggs and Awuzie are the starting outside corners when healthy. Wilson reached 100% playing time in his last 2 games. All 3 will have some IDP relevance if they make it back for Sunday's game against San Francisco.

Cowboys S Donovan Wilson (groin) is out for today's game against the Bengals. It'll be the 2nd straight game he has missed. Darian Thompson played every defensive snap in Wilson's absence against the Ravens on Tuesday.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He was limited in practice all week, but we never heard much concern about Zeke’s availability for this one.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is expected to play against the Bengals today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Zeke was limited in practice all week and carries elevated risk in fantasy lineups. But the matchup means he belongs in most fantasy lineups.

Cowboys S Donovan Wilson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He missed practice all week again after sitting out Week 13 with the groin injury. Wilson looks unlikely to play and would be a high-risk IDP option even if active.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. We've heard nothing to suggest that Zeke is in danger of missing this one, but the calf issue obviously adds risk to his fantasy profile. Elliott owners should look to add RB Tony Pollard as insurance.

Cowboys S Donovan Wilson is inactive for tonight's game against the Ravens. DE Aldon Smith is active. He turned up questionable with an illness that cost him some practice time but is good to go for IDP lineups. Darian Thompson looks like the stand-in for Wilson, in case you're in need.

Cowboys S Donovan Wilson (groin) and DE Aldon Smith (illness) are questionable for Tuesday's game against the Ravens. Wilson got added to the practice report Friday and then missed the week's final 2 workouts. He doesn't appear to be worth waiting for in IDP lineups. Smith reportedly practiced Saturday. Cowboys Wire reports that Smith is "not in jeopardy" of missing the game.

Cowboys K Greg Zuerlein (back) is active for today's game against Washington. Use him as planned.

Cowboys K Greg Zuerlein (back) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against Washington after a limited week of practice. We'll get his official status around 3 pm ET tomorrow, but you might want to look elsewhere for your fantasy lineup.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (illness) is active for today's game against the Vikings. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He didn't practice Thursday and then turned up as a non-participant Friday, though the team didn't actually practice. Lawrence reportedly still hopes to play. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon.
