Cole Beasley caught his lone target for four yards in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals.

He was barely even noticeable Monday night. Dak Prescott only attempted 18 passes and was going deep to Brice Butler at times or hitting Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams over the middle. Beasley is only worth owning in deeper PPR leagues. The good news is the Cowboys' schedule starts to soften.

Jason Witten caught just 1-of-4 targets for three yards in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals.

The one-catch night is really disappointing after Witten managed a combined 17-156-2 line through the first two games. A cool-down was obviously coming soon, and the Cardinals are one of the best teams at defending tight ends. Witten will be a borderline TE1/2 next week against the Rams at home.
Sep 26 - 12:31 AM

Terrance Williams caught 3-of-4 targets for 47 yards in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals.

Williams came into the game questionable with an ankle injury but gutted it out and looked no worse for the wear. He simply isn't a fantasy option. Williams will have big games, but they'll be completely unpredictable.

Brice Butler caught both of his targets for 90 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals.

Talk about making the most of your targets. Butler scored a 37-yard touchdown on his first reception, catching a beautiful ball from Dak Prescott who was on the run, and Butler then hauled in a 53-yard bomb over the top of Tyrann Mathieu in the fourth quarter to set up Ezekiel Elliott's game-sealing eight-yard touchdown two plays later. Butler is only a deep-league bench stash.

Ezekiel Elliott rushed 22 times for 80 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals.

He caught 3-of-4 targets for an additional 14 yards. The Cardinals really bottled up Elliott in the first half, allowing a 30-yard run but limiting Elliott to just one yard on his other seven carries. The Cowboys kept feeding him, though, and Arizona eventually started to break down. Elliott's eight-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter between RG Zack Martin and RT La'El Collins sealed the 11-point win. Elliott should have an easier time next week at home against the Rams.
Sep 26 - 12:16 AM

Dez Bryant caught both of his targets for 12 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals on Monday night.

Dak Prescott threw the ball just 18 times and only six times before halftime, as the Cowboys barely possessed the ball in the first half. Bryant made the most of his targets, however, turning the second one into a bully-ball 15-yard touchdown where he ran through Antoine Bethea and Tyrann Mathieu plus a couple other defenders on his way to the goal line. Bryant had a tough Weeks 1-3 schedule but came out of it with two touchdowns. Things will start to soften up a bit starting in Week 4 with a home date against the Rams.

Dak Prescott completed 13-of-18 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 28-17, Week 3 win over the Cardinals on Monday night, adding a 16 yards rushing and a third touchdown.

Dallas barely possessed the ball in the first 20 minutes of game action, going three-and-out on its first two possessions while watching the Cardinals string together two exhausting offensive drives. Prescott went into the half with just 25 scoreless yards passing and the 10-yard rushing score. After the break, though, Prescott was a man on fire. He was making incredible throws, especially while on the move, hitting Brice Butler for a beautiful 37-yard score on the run. Butler later caught a 53-yard bomb from Prescott to set up an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown to seal the win. Prescott's other touchdown was a short score to Dez Bryant, who powered through half the Arizona defense on his way to the goal line. Prescott will be a mid-to-low QB1 next week at home against the Rams.

Brice Butler (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

He's good to go as the No. 4 receiver as a deep threat but isn't a fantasy factor.
Sep 25 - 7:21 PM

Terrance Williams (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

Brice Butler (ankle) is also active for Dallas. Inactive for the Cowboys are QB Cooper Rush, RB Darren McFadden, CB Nolan Carroll, CB Chidobe Awuzie, LB Anthony Hitchens, OG Jonathan Cooper, and DE Charles Tapper.
Sep 25 - 7:19 PM

Terrance Williams (ankle) is questionable for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

Williams opened the week with two missed practices, but is trending up after getting in a limited session Saturday. He's clearly less than 100 percent and looks like a game-time decision. The Cowboys also listed Brice Butler (ankle) as questionable.
Sep 23 - 5:51 PM

Terrance Williams (ankle) is practicing Saturday.

This is great news for Williams' chances of playing Monday night against the Cardinals. With Dez Bryant matched up against Patrick Peterson, Williams may be looked to more frequently than last week where he was targeted on only 5-of-50 pass attempts.
Sep 23 - 12:55 PM

Ezekiel Elliott’s hearing with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled for October 2.

It means Elliott is eligible to play at least the next two weeks. Elliott’s six-game suspension could kick in as soon as Week 5, depending on if the Fifth Circuit rules against his injunction. It's more legal drama that further muddles Zeke's status. Coming off a career-worst game at Denver, Elliott's rest-of-season outlook is trending down.
Sep 22 - 5:44 PM

Brice Butler (ankle) was limited at Friday's practice.

It's only notable with Terrance Williams looking doubtful for Monday. The Cowboys could be down to Noah Brown opposite Dez Bryant.
Sep 22 - 5:12 PM

Cowboys LCB Nolan Carroll (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3.

The Cowboys are reeling with so many injuries they will be forced to turn back to Orlando Scandrick in spite of his broken hand. Rookie CB Chidobe Awuzie -- a Week 2 starter -- is not going to play due to a hamstring injury.
Sep 22 - 1:20 PM

Terrance Williams (ankle) didn't practice on Friday.

It's never a good sign when players are added to the injury report this late in the week, though it's not time to panic yet with the Cowboys playing on Monday night. A fringe player to begin with in fantasy, Williams won't carry much relevance against the Cardinals if he suits up for Week 3.
