Cowboys LB Sean Lee suffered a hamstring injury Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Lee was limited last week because of a hamstring issue, but this injury is apparently to the other leg. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports he is expected to miss a few weeks.

Geoff Swaim contributed five catches for a team-high 47 yards on seven targets Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

Most of his production including four of his five catches came in the second half. The seven targets were a career-high for Swaim, who entered Sunday’s action having caught just 12 passes over 30 career games. Despite his recent emergence, Swaim is not worth pursuing in fantasy.

Cole Beasley reeled in three-of-five targets for 46 yards Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

The Cowboys’ supposed lead receiver was out-targeted by both Ezekiell Elliott and Geoff Swaim. Even with Dallas in catch-up mode for most of the second half, Beasley was unable to make a difference. He’ll be tough to trust against the Lions in Week 4.
Sep 23 - 9:35 PM

Deonte Thompson nabbed both of his targets for 23 yards Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to Seattle.

Both targets came with Dallas playing from behind in the second half. The fact that Thompson, a 29-year-old, undrafted journeyman, is playing significant snaps shows how desperate the Cowboys are for pass-catching help. Thompson can be left on the waiver wire for next week’s matchup against the Lions.

Terrance Williams wasn’t targeted Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

He was in on just nine-of-59 offensive snaps (15.3 percent). It would probably take an injury to one of the Cowboys starters for Williams to have any real fantasy relevance, and even then, that might be a stretch.
Sep 23 - 9:33 PM

Michael Gallup pulled in one-of-four targets for 17 yards Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

The rookie bobbled a ball that eventually found its way into the hands of Earl Thomas. That was one of two interceptions for Thomas, who may have been auditioning to be Gallup’s teammate in Dallas. Even in a wide-open pass-catching corps, the third-rounder has failed to make a difference. He’s managed just three catches over his first three NFL appearances.
Sep 23 - 9:32 PM

Allen Hurns corralled two-of-four targets for 22 yards Sunday in Dallas’ Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

Hurns played a season-high 66.1 percent of the Cowboys’ offensive snaps, but didn’t do much with the opportunity. The Cowboys’ passing game continues to be stuck in neutral, though it’s unlikely Hurns will be the one to fix things.
Sep 23 - 9:31 PM

Dak Prescott completed 19-of-34 passes for 168 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions while adding 21 yards on two carries Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to Seattle.

Dak took five sacks for a loss of 31 yards. Plagued by a patchwork receiving corps and a declining offensive line, Prescott limped to just 40 yards on 6-of-13 passing in the first half. He was only marginally better after the break and spent much of his day trying to escape Frank Clark, who dominated up front for Seattle. Prescott’s lone touchdown "pass" came on a shovel throw to Tavon Austin with 7:11 left in the fourth quarter. Any chance of a late comeback ended when Earl Thomas pulled in his second interception of the day on a pass intended for Blake Jarwin. Perhaps Prescott will fare better against an attackable Lions defense at home next week, but with the Cowboys’ offense struggling in all facets, Dak will be little more than a back-end QB2 in fantasy.
Sep 23 - 8:55 PM

Ezekiel Elliott totaled 127 yards on 16 carries while securing three-of-eight targets for 11 yards Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

After opening the year with a pair of so-so games, Elliott played legitimately well on Sunday, particularly in the second half when he broke loose for 76 yards on only seven carries. Zeke’s longest gain came on a 26-yard burst in the fourth quarter, though Bradley McDougald spoiled it by stripping him at the end of his run, resulting in a turnover. Elliott has averaged 16 carries per game this year, which is well below the 24.2 he averaged last season. We’ll see what the 23-year-old can cobble up next week against the Lions.
Sep 23 - 8:53 PM

Tavon Austin delivered three catches for two yards and a touchdown while gaining 18 yards on his lone carry Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

Incredibly, Austin has been on the receiving end of both of Dak Prescott's touchdown passes this year. Of course, we use the word "pass" very loosely as Prescott merely underhanded it to Austin for a three-yard pickup during garbage time. The 28-year-old has speed for days and can still be an entertaining gadget player, though he remains miles away from fantasy relevance.

Cowboys LB Sean Lee (hamstring) is active for Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Lee picked up a hamstring injury in last week's win over the Giants, though he was able to get in a pair of limited practices and should see his usual workload Sunday at Seattle. WR Brice Butler, DT Maliek Collins, LB Chris Covington, C Travis Frederick, TE Dalton Schultz, OG Xavier Su’a-Filo and QB Mike White are the Cowboys' inactives for Week 3. WR Cole Beasley (ankle) and S Xavier Woods (hamstring) will both be available after previously being listed as questionable.
Sep 23 - 3:13 PM

Cole Beasley (ankle) will play in Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Beasley sprained his ankle mid-week and was limited Friday. Even so, he'll be active for the Cowboys in Seattle. Beasley currently leads Dallas' skill players in targets (11) but has an extremely low ceiling given the team's propensity to run early and often. Ezekiel Elliott remains the only matchup-proof weekly starter among Dallas' offense.
Sep 23 - 2:07 AM

Cole Beasley (ankle) is questionable for Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Beasley sprained his ankle towards the end of Wednesday's practice and was limited at week's end. Deonte Thompson and Tavon Austin would likely play larger roles if Beasley, Dallas' current leader in targets, is inactive. There's still no indication he'll actually miss Dallas' Week 3 matchup against the Seahawks.
Sep 21 - 3:20 PM

Cowboys DT Maliek Collins (knee) is out for Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Collins has been a force in the trenches for Dallas but won't play Sunday. His role will be filled by a handful of players given DC Rod Marinelli's interchanging scheme.
Sep 21 - 2:55 PM

Cowboys LB Sean Lee (questionable, hamstring) is expected to play against the Seahawks in Week 3.

Lee himself told Jones he'll play, as expected. He was reportedly able to do more at Thursday's practice and is on track for Sunday. Lee has played a reduced role thus far for precautionary reasons, but remains an integral part of the Cowboys' defense.
