Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (back) is questionable for Week 15 against the Raiders.

Smith will continue to play through injury after practicing on a limited basis this week. La'el Collins (back) is also expected to start despite being listed questionable.
Dec 15 - 5:32 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (back) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Scandrick was always expected to miss at least two games with his back injury. The Cowboys also ruled out DL David Irving (concussion) and LB Justin Durant (concussion) for Sunday night's game.
Dec 15 - 5:11 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said K Dan Bailey has a minor hamstring injury.

It explains why the hyper-accurate kicker missed two field goals and an extra point against the Giants. Jones does not expect the injury to be an issue moving forward, but it is something to monitor. If he plays, Bailey will be a great option against the Raiders.

Terrance Williams turned six targets into three catches for 25 yards Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Williams was targeted in the end zone on back-to-back plays in the first quarter but came up empty on both, forcing Dallas to settle for a 21-yard field goal. He led the team in targets but somehow finished only fourth in yards behind Rod Smith, Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley. Williams remains well off the fantasy radar, even with a mouth-watering matchup against the Raiders on deck.
Dec 10 - 5:49 PM

Alfred Morris notched 62 yards on 19 carries while pulling in three catches for 23 yards on three targets Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Morris got off to a busy start with 32 yards on eight touches on the Cowboys’ opening drive. He never broke the big one, contributing a long gain of just nine yards, though he did have a long-ish run wiped out by a third-quarter holding penalty. Morris out-touched Rod Smith handily (22-11) but was out-gained by over 70 yards from scrimmage. Not usually involved in the passing game, Morris set season-high in catches, receiving yards and targets in the victory. Morris will remain in the RB2 discussion next week against the Raiders before turning the backfield over to Ezekiel Elliott when he returns from suspension in Week 16.
Dec 10 - 5:48 PM

Dak Prescott completed 20-of-30 passes for 332 yards and three touchdowns while adding 13 yards on six carries Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Prescott wasn't sacked and his 332 yards were a career-high. This was easily Prescott’s best game since Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension went into effect early last month. Dak had a relatively quiet first three quarters but exploded for two touchdowns in the final period including an 81-yarder to running back Rod Smith to seal the game with just over four minutes remaining. Prescott’s other highlights included a 50-yard touchdown strike to Dez Bryant and a 54-yard screen pass to Cole Beasley. He also connected with Jason Witten for a 20-yard score in the fourth quarter. Prescott seems to have weathered his first career slump and should be safe to fire up as a QB1 next week in a plush matchup against the Raiders on Sunday Night Football.
Dec 10 - 4:56 PM

Rod Smith handled six carries for 47 yards and a touchdown while nabbing five catches for 115 yards and another touchdown Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Both of his touchdowns came in the fourth quarter. For his first score, Smith caught a slant from Dak Prescott and won a footrace to the end zone for an 81-yard touchdown. Later he padded the Cowboys’ lead by rumbling in from 15 yards out on a toss from Prescott. Alfred Morris out-touched Smith 22-11 though Smith obviously held a huge edge in yards from scrimmage with 160. Smith’s previous career-high in yards from scrimmage was only 66, so this was easily the best game he’s had since arriving as an undrafted rookie in 2015. Even in a good matchup, we wouldn’t expect a repeat performance next week against the Raiders.
Dec 10 - 4:53 PM

Dez Bryant absorbed three-of-five targets for 73 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Bryant got off to a poor start with a pair of first-half drops but redeemed himself by going for a 50-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. He won his matchup with Brandon Dixon and found nothing but green grass in front of him. Dez was only targeted once after halftime as the Cowboys leaned heavily on Rod Smith and Alfred Morris down the stretch. Bryant has had concerningly few blow-up games this year but still leads the team with six touchdown receptions and gets a favorable matchup with Oakland in Week 15.
Dec 10 - 4:47 PM

Cole Beasley snagged three-of-five targets for 59 yards Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Beasley was quiet in the first half, securing two-of-three targets for only five yards. He only caught one ball after halftime but obviously made the most of it, turning a fourth-quarter screen pass into 54-yard pick-up. On one play, Beasley gained more yards than he had in his previous three games combined. He’ll take a five-game touchdown drought into next week’s game against the Raiders.
Dec 10 - 4:45 PM

Jason Witten came down with one catch for 20 yards and a touchdown on two targets Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Witten wasn’t even targeted until the fourth quarter. He saved his best for last though, finding the end zone on a 20-yard strike from Dak Prescott. In addition to being his only catch of the game, Witten’s touchdown broke a 10-10 tie with 7:38 remaining. Witten has caught just two-of-seven targets over his last two games, though fortunately for fantasy owners, both catches went for touchdowns. He’ll try for another TD against the Raiders in Week 15.
Dec 10 - 4:43 PM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (back) is active for Week 14 against the Giants.

La'el Collins (back) is also good to go. WR Brice Butler, LB Justin Durant, DL David Irving, TE Blake Jarwin, DT Daniel Ross, CB Orlando Scandrick and RB Trey Williams are inactive for Sunday's game in the Meadowlands.
Dec 10 - 11:45 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys are "optimistic" LT Tyron Smith (questionable, back) will play Week 14 against the Giants.

La'el Collins (back) is also trending in the right direction, though the Cowboys will test them out in warmups before making a final call. Having Smith and Collins available would obviously be good news for Dak Prescott.
Dec 10 - 8:43 AM

Cowboys RT La'El Collins (questionable, back) is expected to play in Week 14 against the Giants.

Collins hasn't practiced the last two weeks but should continue to play through his back issues. The Cowboys also expect to have LT Tyron Smith (questionable, back) for Sunday's game.
Dec 9 - 5:14 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (back) has been downgraded to out for Week 14.

Scandrick will miss at least one game with his back injury. The Cowboys will also be without LB Justin Durant and DL David Irving.
Dec 9 - 3:06 PM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (back) is questionable for Week 14 against the Giants.

Smith started the week with a missed practice on Wednesday but returned to limited work on both Thursday and Friday. We're betting on Smith being out there in a must-win game, but if not, Byron Bell would likely fill in at left tackle.
