Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Bears. S Malik Hooker (hamstring) is inactive. That could deliver a slight boost to the playing time of safeties Jayron Kearse and Donovan Wilson.

The Texans are open to trading WR Brandin Cooks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefter lists the Giants, Rams and Vikings as potential suitors. We're not sure any of those destinations would help Cooks' 2022 fantasy value. Schefter notes that Cooks is due $18 million fully guaranteed next season, so that contract might need to be restructured for a deal to get done.

The Cowboys expect LB Micah Parsons (shoulder) to be ready for today's game against the Bears, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He belongs in IDP lineups for the high-upside sack matchup. S Malik Hooker (hamstring) is a game-time decision. Try to avoid using him after he missed the entire practice week.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is expected to play vs. the Titans. He was a late-week addition to the injury report and turned up questionable. He should be a good bet for targets with teammate Nico Collins out.

Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (shoulder) and S Malik Hooker (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. HC Mike McCarthy said Friday he doesn't have "high concern" that Parsons will miss the game, so we should be good to use him in a high-upside sack matchup. Hooker didn't practice all week and shouldn't be in IDP lineups even if he's active.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Titans. He was added to the injury report on Friday but put in a full practice. We'll look for further updates on Cooks' status, but he can stay penciled into Week 8 fantasy lineups for now.

Cowboys Dak Prescott threw for just 207 yards and 1 TD in Sunday's win over the Lions. It marked the 1st time he had played since injuring his right thumb in the opener. Dallas dropped him back only 28 times vs. 31 team rushing attempts. Prescott completed 76% of his throws and averaged 8.3 yards per attempts. So we don't have any concern for him coming off the disappointing fantasy stat line. WR CeeDee Lamb led the team with 70 receiving yards on 4 catches (6 targets). Noah Brown drew a team-high 7 targets, catching 5 for 50 yards. TE Dalton Schultz caught all 5 of his targets for 49 yards. No other Cowboy drew more than 2 looks in the game.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play vs. the Lions on Sunday for the 1st time since the opener. There’s obviously risk to a QB returning from a throwing-thumb injury. But the ceiling is lofty against Detroit’s 28th-ranked QB defense.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) put in another full practice on Thursday. He remains on track to return for this weekend's tasty matchup vs. the Lions.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy says doctors have cleared QB Dak Prescott (thumb) to play, according to NFL Network's Jane Slater. The team plans for Prescott to throw 40-50 passes at Thursday's practice, and the QB appears on track to return Sunday against the Lions.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thimb) told the media after Sunday night's loss to the Eagles that he plans to return for Week 7. Prescott has another doctor visit this week to check on the status on that injured thumb, but the expectation is that he'll be ready for a full practice on Wednesday. We'll track his participation throughout the week.

Cowboys rookie TE Jake Ferguson caught 4 of 6 targets for 40 yards and the team's lone passing TD in Sunday night's loss to the Eagles. He checked in 3rd in targets, with TE Peyton Hendershot drawing another 5 and TE Sean McKeon 1 as well. WR CeeDee Lamb led Dallas with 10 targets, catching 5 for 68 yards. WR Michael Gallup ranked 2nd, putting up a 2-18 receiving line on his 7 looks. QB Cooper Rush attempted a season-high 38 passes but completed only 18 (47.4%) for 181 yards and 1 TD. He also threw 3 INTs.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (hip) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Eagles. He was held out of Friday’s practice and listed as questionable, but we never heard much concern about his status for this one. Lamb is safe to get into fantasy lineups if you were waiting on him.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Eagles. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said this morning that Prescott “still must improve to be ready to practice" this coming Wednesday. It sounds like he’s not a lock to be ready for Week 7. QB Cooper Rush gets another start tonight.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says there's a "good chance" Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) returns for Week 7. "He's really progressing well," Rapoport adds. "He's as close as he's been ... But it is not a sure thing [he plays Week 7.] He still needs to work on grip and grip strength." We'll keep a close eye on Prescott's practice participation this coming week.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (hip) is expected to play against the Eagles tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's been the word from Cowboys camp throughout the week, as Lamb has dealt with some seemingly minor injuries. Check our Week 6 rankings to see whether he belongs in your fantasy football lineups.

Though he's listed as questionable for the Sunday night game against the Eagles, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) won't play, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He adds that the QB "still must improve to be ready to practice" Wednesday. We'll continue to track Prescott's progress. Cooper Rush gets his 5th straight start.

The Cowboys list QB Dak Prescott (thumb) as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Eagles. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’re still expecting QB Cooper Rush to get the start this weekend, but we’ll continue to keep an eye on the situation.

The Cowboys added WR CeeDee Lamb to the injury report Friday with a hip issue that kept him out of Friday's practice. He's questionable for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. The team doesn't sound worried, though. "He's just working through a couple things there," VP Stephen Jones said, according to The Athletic's Jon Machota. "Just felt like it was best for him not to practice today. We feel like he'll get all that sorted out for the game." We'll certainly keep an eye on Lamb, but it sounds like we should expect him to play.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. It's his 1st official practice since going down in the season opener. We're still not expecting Prescott to play vs. the Eagles on Sunday night, but a Week 7 return looks doable.
