DeMarcus Lawrence Fantasy Football News 2020

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.

Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (knee) is active for today’s game against the Seahawks. He saw his playing time limited last week by injury, though, and then saw limited practice participation this week. Try to avoid using Lawrence in IDP lineups if you can help it.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence is questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He missed the 1st 2 practices of the week with a knee injury that limited his Week 2 playing time. Dallas estimated him at a limited participation level for Friday's walkthrough. Keep Lawrence out of your Week 3 IDP lineups if you can. DE Everson Griffen figures to see extra playing time.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence barely played in the 2nd half of Sunday's win over the Falcons because of a knee injury. HC Mike McCarthy said Monday they "were just keeping an eye on" Lawrence's knee in the 2nd half after he hurt it in the 1st, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. The coach said they should know more about Lawrence's status for Week 3 once the practice week begins Wednesday. Lawrence's downtime produced more snaps for DE Everson Griffen. Aldon Smith led the edge group in playing time for the 2nd straight game.

The Cowboys on Tuesday activated DE DeMarcus Lawrence from the PUP. He had missed all of training camp after April surgery for a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The joint had reportedly bothered him for 2 seasons. We'll keep an eye on reports of his progress, but Lawrence returning a couple of weeks before the start of the season is a good sign that the star pass rusher will be able to help the Dallas defense and our IDP lineups.

The Cowboys are placing the franchise tag on DE Demarcus Lawrence for the 2nd straight year. Although it'd obviously be nice for the player to secure his longer-term status, IDP owners can continue expecting the high-level production we've gotten from Lawrence the past 2 years.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (shoulder) and CB Chidobe Awuzie (ankle) are active for today's game against the Jaguars. They're OK to use as planned in IDP lineups.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He missed Wednesday's practice before limited workouts the next 2 days. DT David Irving, on the other hand, put in full practices Thursday and Friday after missing last week's game while dealing with a family issue and spending the 1st 4 weeks on a league suspension. He's expected to play 10-15 snaps against Jacksonville, according to Cowboys Wire. That's not enough to make Irving usable in IDP leagues, but it's his 1st real step toward getting back to IDP relevance.

Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) and S Barry Church (forearm) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Buccaneers. Church has been playing through the issue since his return to the lineup, though. And Lee's not a good bet to sit out unless he absolutely needs to. Dallas has already ruled DE Demarcus Lawrence (back) out for the game.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (back) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Giants, but the team expects him to play, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Lawrence actually sat out the past 2 days of practice after a limited workout Wednesday. He has been playing through the issue despite "questionable" tags but has just 1 sack on the year. Lawrence makes for a weak IDP option this week.

Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (back) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He entered the night questionable but has played through the issue for several weeks and should be fine to use in an upside matchup. S Barry Church (forearm) is also active after making his return to the roster this week from a forearm fracture. He's stepping back into the role that J.J. Wilcox (inactive) had been filling for him. Dallas will also have D-linemen Jack Crawford and David Irving active. Neither is much of an IDP option.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence is active for today's game against Washington. He entered the day questionable but never actually appeared in doubt for the game. Use him as you normally would in IDP leagues.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (back) is active for today's game against the Ravens. Use him as you normally would in your IDP league.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He put in limited practices all week, though, so we'd bet on him being ready. We'll check on his status Sunday.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (back) is active for today's game at Pittsburgh. He has yet to deliver any IDP value since returning from his season-opening suspension, but his presence helps the D (which still isn't a good play this week).

The Cowboys on Saturday activated DE Demarcus Lawrence following his 4-game suspension. He's expected to play Sunday against the Bengals, though it's not yet clear how big his immediate role will be. IDP owners should hold off for this week at least

Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence is facing a 4-game suspension for violating the league drug policy, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lawrence is reportedly appealing the ban, but we don't often see those things overturned. Assuming the suspension holds up, Lawrence will join DE Randy Gregory on the sideline for the season's 1st 4 games. That only heightens Dallas' need for edge-rushing help and could impact the team's early-round plans for the NFL Draft. The Cowboys have also elected to not re-sign DE Greg Hardy so far. We'll see how Dallas addresses the situation. Lawrence delivered 7 sacks and 9 total QB hits over the final 8 games last season. He remains a promising IDP option for the long term, as long as he doesn't continue this off-field pattern.
