Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is off to an uneven start to training camp. “Well, we’re a work in progress,” OC Scott Linehan said. “We’re not where we want to be, but there’s bright spots, things we build on." It's early, and this shouldn't come as a major surprise considering the wholesale changes to Dallas' pass-catching corps. But in a time of the year when everyone is "in the best shape of their lives" and "ready for a breakout season," it's notable to hear a negative report on an offense. We'll be keeping a close eye on the Cowboys this preseason, but this isn't a passing game we're looking to invest in heavily.
Cowboys HC Jason Garrett expects WR Terrance Williams to be ready for the start of training camp next month. He underwent surgery earlier this offseason to repair a Jones fracture to his foot. That's an injury that's caused complications and setbacks for plenty of guys, so we'll be keeping a close eye on Williams when he hits the field. There's still a boatload of opportunity for him in a passing game that lost WR Dez Bryant and TE Jason Witten. But it's been a rough offseason for Williams, between the foot injury and a May arrest.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident. Williams allegedly crashed his Lamborghini into a light pole and was later found riding an electric bike near his home. He was released on $369 bond, but we'll see if this earns him a suspension from the league. It's been a rough offseason for Williams, who also had surgery to repair a Jones fracture in his foot.
The Cowboys are expected to release WR Dez Bryant, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Todd Archer. We've heard whispers about this for a while now. Dallas reportedly wants Bryant to take a pay cut from the $12.5 million he's scheduled to earn this year and next -- and the mercurial WR evidently isn't willing to oblige. The 2 sides are meeting today, but a divorce is expected "barring an unexpected last-minute change of heart," Schefter tweets. Bryant's production has crated since 3-straight seasons of 1,200+ yards from 2012 to 2014. Over the past 3 years, he's totaled just 150 catches for 2,035 yards and 17 TDs across 38 appearances. He seemingly struggled to get on the same page as QB Dak Prescott, corralling just 52.2% of his targets over the last 2 seasons. Bryant is still just 29, so there's certainly a chance he bounces back in 2018. We'll see where he lands before assessing his fantasy value. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are left with Terrance Williams, Allen Hurns and Cole Beasley atop their WR depth chart. They figure to be in the market for a rookie WR or 2.
Update: They did.
Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones revealed on Monday that WR Terrance Williams had surgery to repair a broken 5th metatarsal in his foot. It's the dreaded Jones Fracture that has caused long-term issues for guys like Dez Bryant, Sammy Watkins and Julian Edelman. There's no timetable for Williams' return, but Jones did say that he'd miss some of the offseason program. Dallas, of course, just signed Allen Hurns to compete for Williams' #2 WR job.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams isn't listed on the Week 10 injury report. He hurt his ankle in last Sunday's win over the Chiefs but is evidently good to go for this weekend's game vs. Atlanta. Williams will be on the WR3 radar if Dez Bryant (knee, ankle) is unable to play.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams said the ankle that knocked him out of Sunday's win over the Chiefs early has been lingering since he initially hurt it in the season opener. “It’s just sore. It keeps hurting,” Williams said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It’s just one of those things where if somebody hits me too hard it hurts a lot.” Williams reportedly didn't seem too worried about it after his 9-catch, 141-yard outing against Kansas City. That said, Williams has been a fantasy non-factor outside of Sunday's game and a 6-68 line in the opener. And the big numbers against the Chiefs came in a matchup that has sprung plenty of WR scoring this year. Don't make Williams a big part of your Week 10 fantasy football plans.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams injured his ankle in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Chiefs. It was a tough end to his big 9-catch, 141-yard outing. We’ll look for an update on his status tomorrow.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Broncos. Even at 100%, he wouldn’t be a fantasy option in this matchup.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) is expected to play against the Broncos today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams only practiced on Friday this week but was able to return to last week's opener after twisting the ankle. His presence is good news for QB Dak Prescott, but Williams isn't a fantasy option in Denver.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Broncos. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. Williams shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups in a brutal Week 2 matchup.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He rolled the ankle early in last week's opener but was able to return to the game. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow, but Williams shouldn't be in your fantasy plans with a brutal Week 2 against the Broncos.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams injured his left ankle when he stepped on a DB's foot in the 1st quarter of Sunday night's game against the Giants. He headed back to the locker room and is officially questionable to return.
UPDATE: Williams returned later in the 1st quarter.
ESPN's Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys have agreed to a 4-year deal with WR Terrance Williams. The deal is worth $17 million, including $9.5 million guaranteed. It's a somewhat surprising move considering Williams ranked just 4th on the team in targets last year and posted meager numbers with Dez Bryant out for much of the previous season. Williams has yet to develop beyond deep-threat status and has showed fantasy football owners that we shouldn't bet on regular production. Combine that with Dallas' run-heavy ways, and you get a player not worth much fantasy attention.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams started the scoring Sunday night with a 31-yard TD off play action. He went on to lead the team in receptions (5) and yards (76), while the TD stood as Dallas' only of the night. Williams' 6 targets doubled any other game since Week 8. Williams hadn't caught more than 2 passes in a game since Week 6. The Giants contest isn't enough to bring him back to fantasy relevance.
Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Packers. He’s expected back after the Week 7 bye. Terrance Williams, Brice Butler and Cole Beasley will again serve as Dallas’ top 3 WRs today.
Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) didn’t practice all week but is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. It’s the same boat he was in last week when he ended up inactive. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport called Bryant “unlikely” to play. Dallas-Cincinnati doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET, but Bryant should be on fantasy benches. His absence would leave Brice Butler, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley as the Cowboys’ top 3 WRs.
Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. The team has seemingly been over-optimistic about Bryant's status. There's a good chance he misses multiple games with the hairline fracture in his knee. Terrance Williams and Brice Butler will serve as Dallas' outside WRs this weekend, with Cole Beasley in the slot. Beasley and TE Jason Witten are the best target bets.
ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) is not expected to play against the 49ers on Sunday. He's likely looking at a multi-week absence. We've removed Bryant from the Week 4 Rankings, lowered QB Dak Prescott and given bumps up to Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten.
Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot, ankle) didn't practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills. Dallas might be ready to shut its star down for the year. WR Cole Beasley (knee, illness) is questionable for Week 16. That leaves Terrance Williams as Dallas' likely top WR, but he'd be a desperation fantasy play.
