ESPN's Adam Caplan hears that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) had "no issues with making throws with some distance on them during Saturday's work." It's the most positive report we've heard on Prescott all week. We still won't know exactly how close he is to 100% until Cowboys-Eagles kicks off this afternoon, though, so we're still ranking him as a risk/reward QB1.
Rams K Greg Zuerlein is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. He's a shaky fantasy option.
The Cowboys have ruled LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) out once again. He hasn't played since Week 11. Sean Lee remains an IDP starting option in LVE's absence.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) isn't listed on the final injury report. It's confirmation that he'll start Sunday's game against the Eagles. Prescott is reportedly dealing with an AC joint injury in his right shoulder, though, and only did some light throwing on Friday this week. It obviously adds lots of risk to his Week 16 fantasy profile -- although there's upside in this matchup vs. Philly's burnable CBs.
Rams K Greg Zuerlein (quad) missed practice all week and is questionable for Saturday night's game against the 49ers. HC Sean McVay said Thursday that he expects Zuerlein to play but won't know for sure until he kicks on Friday. Avoid him in Week 16 fantasy lineups.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott told reporters on Thursday that he'll play against the Eagles this weekend, despite the AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder. "I'm getting better," he said. "Simple as that. Mobility and function, it's all improving. That's the key. That's the goal. I'll be good to go Sunday." Prescott didn't throw on Thursday and said that he might not throw until Saturday. He also revealed that he suffered this same injury multiple times in college. "I haven't had it in 4 years. You forget the pain level," he said. "You've got to get used to that again, but it's fine ... Nothing I can't deal with." We'll continue to keep a close eye on Prescott, but he's shaping up as a risk/reward Week 16 fantasy play.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffered an AC joint injury in his throwing shoulder in the 1st quarter of Sunday's win over the Rams. Prescott never left that game but attempted just 20 passes over the final 3-and-a-half quarters. HC Jason Garrett said Wednesday that an MRI revealed no structural damage to the shoulder but that Prescott is "not very functional at the moment." Garrett also stopped short of guaranteeing that Prescott will play against the Eagles this weekend, although ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Prescott is expected to play. We'll keep a close eye on the situation over the next few days -- but we just moved Prescott and his WRs down the Week 16 Rankings.
Cowboys LB Sean Lee (pec, thigh) is active for today's game against the Rams. He'll play starter-level snaps with Leighton Vander Esch out, but could be in line for less playing time than the past few weeks given issues that kept Lee out of practice all week. He's merely a low-end IDP starting option.
Cowboys LB Sean Lee missed practice all week while dealing with pectoral and thigh injuries, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Lee is "planning to go" against the Rams today. An active Lee would still carry some risk of decreased playing time. Even with Leighton Vander Esch out the past 3 weeks, Lee played 68%, 85% and 83% of the defensive snaps. Consider Lee no more than a LB3 for IDP lineups.
The Cowboys have ruled LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) out for Sunday's game against the Bears. That has meant starter level playing time for LB Sean Lee. The veteran (pectoral) is questionable for Week 15. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon.
Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (knee) practiced all week and will return for Sunday’s game against the Rams. The rookie has averaged just 3.5 carries and 1.5 targets over his last 8 games.
Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch didn't practice Wednesday. HC Jason Garrett called him "day-to-day" afterward, according to the team website, adding that "it might be a little bit of time" before he can get back onto the field. Vander Esch is nursing a neck injury that seems to carry more long-term concern than immediate. Don't bet on him returning for your Week 15 IDP lineup. We'll see how things progress. Sean Lee becomes an IDP option whenever Vander Esch sits.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott injured the index finger on his right hand and sprained his left hand in Thursday night's game in Chicago, HC Jason Garrett said. Garrett expects Prescott to be "fine" for Week 15, but we'll need to keep an eye on him. Prescott completed a season-low 55% of his passes in that loss to Chicago.
Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (knee) is inactive for tonight's game against the Bears. The rookie has averaged 2.6 carries and 2.4 targets over the past 5 weeks, so his absence is a slight boost to RB Ezekiel Elliott's projected volume.
The Cowboys have ruled LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) and S Jeff Heath (shoulder) out for Thursday night's game against the Bears. Vander Esch's absence makes LB Sean Lee an option for IDP lineups in Week 14.
Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Bears. He didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday. Pollard hasn't reached fantasy relevancy this year, but he's averaged 2.6 carries and 2.4 targets over the past 5 weeks. So his absence would be a slight boost to RB Ezekiel Elliott's stock.
The MRI on Cowboys WR Amari Cooper's left knee revealed no structural damage, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. We'll keep an eye on Cooper's practice participation next week, but he should be fine for Thursday night's game against the Bears.
Cowboys WR Amari Cooper told reporters that he'll get an x-ray Friday after taking a helmet to the knee late in the loss to the Bills. Cooper briefly returned after the injury but seem hobbled. He's dealt with a bunch of lower-body injuries throughout this season. We'll update his status when we learn more.
The Cowboys have ruled LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) out for Thursday's game against the Bills. That means elevated playing time for LB Sean Lee in an upside matchup. S Jeff Heath (shoulder) is questionable. He missed Week 11 with the issue but returned for Sunday's game at New England.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed on his Tuesday radio show that LB Leighton Vander Esch likely won't play against the Bills on Thanksgiving because of the neck injury that cost him last week. Jones refused to comment on LVE's outlook beyond Week 13, according to David Helman of the team website. Vander Esch's absence makes LB Sean Lee a startable IDP commodity against Buffalo.
