View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Washington signed a 1-year deal with the Cowboys for $1,187,500, two days after free agency opened.
  • That followed 4 years in Pittsburgh after the Steelers drafted him in Round 2 in 2018.
  • Washington topped out at 80 targets, 44 receptions and 735 yards in 2019. His 55% catch rate and 2.9 receptions per game that season remain career highs as well.
  • Washington hasn’t reached 2 receptions per game in any other season.
  • His average depth of target has fallen 3 straight years. According to Pro Football Reference, those numbers have been: 16.8, 15.8, 12.5, 11.7.
  • Ben Roethlisberger’s average target depth declined over the same span. (He missed nearly all of 2019.)
  • Last year’s Cowboys collectively ranked 13th in average target depth.
  • Tolbert lands in an offense that has shed WRs Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson from last year. Those 2 combined for 25.5% target share and 34% of targeted air yards.
  • Michael Gallup re-signed for big money, but is coming off a Jan. 2 ACL tear.
  • The Cowboys drafted WR Jalen Tolbert in Round 3.
  • ESPN's Todd Archer reports that Cowboys WR James Washington broke his right foot in Monday's practice. He'll undergo surgery on Tuesday and is expected to be sidelined for 6-10 weeks, per Archer.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Washington figures to battle Jalen Tolbert for the #3 WR gig. If Michael Gallup isn’t ready – or is limited – early in the year because of his ACL recovery, there could be room for both in that range. Washington has given no reason for us to believe in him so far in the NFL. But the opportunity available puts him in late-round fantasy consideration.

James Washington, WR DAL

10:27pm EDT 8/31/22

Washington to IR

The Cowboys placed WR James Washington (foot) on IR, knocking him out for at least the first 4 games of the season. With WR Michael Gallup (knee) unlikely to be ready for Week 1, Dallas will roll out CeeDee Lamb, Noah Brown and Jalen Tolbert as its top 3 WRs.

ESPN's Todd Archer reports that Cowboys WR James Washington broke his right foot in Monday's practice. He'll undergo surgery on Tuesday and is expected to be sidelined for 6-10 weeks, per Archer. It sounds like this is a Jones Fracture, which is a fracture of the bone on the pinky toe side of the foot. That's the injury that cost Titans RB Derrick Henry nearly 3 months last year, so 6-10 weeks might be on the optimistic side. Regardless, Washington isn't worth a spot on redraft rosters -- and we wouldn't even bother with him in best ball. With WR Michael Gallup (ACL) also not expected to be ready for the start of the season, rookie WR Jalen Tolbert has a huge opportunity to capture a significant early-season role.

Cowboys WR James Washington was carted off the practice field on Monday with an apparent right leg injury. We'll pass along an update when we get one, but it'd probably be wise to hold off on drafting Washington in the meantime. A significant injury would open the door wide open for rookie WR Jalen Tolbert to claim a Week 1 starting job.

According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Cowboys rookie WR Jalen Tolbert "is expected to start Week 1." Machota said right after the draft that the 3rd-round pick had a chance to compete for a significant role right away. Tolbert worked with the starters in spring workouts, helped by the absences of Michael Gallup and James Washington. Gallup isn't expected to be ready for the opener, coming off his end-of-season ACL tear. Washington has yet to deliver in the NFL and arrived on a small, 1-year contract in free agency. The uncertainty with Gallup and departure of Amari Cooper also leaves room for Tolbert to remain a factor even once Gallup returns. Tolbert presents intriguing upside -- especially in Dak Prescott best-ball lineups -- from a WR68 ADP in Underdog drafting.
