Date: Team: Pos:

Cole Beasley caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

This is the norm for Beasley now, which obviously makes him irrelevant in fantasy.
Nov 23 - 7:44 PM

Dez Bryant caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

Bryant was held without a catch in the first half and was trailed by CB Casey Hayward much of the afternoon. Bryant has posted a couple duds in the three games since Ezekiel Elliott's suspension went into effect. He had a 3-39 day Week 10 at Atlanta and followed it up with an 8-63 last week. Bryant has underperformed greatly in 2017 and is more of a WR3 at this point in time. He gets a matchup with Josh Norman next Thursday night in Washington.
Nov 23 - 7:43 PM

Jason Witten caught all seven of his targets for 44 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

The Chargers smother tight ends defensively, so this was actually a decent PPR day for Witten. Dak Prescott could have had him for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but Prescott missed him and threw a 90-yard pick-six instead. Witten will be at the bottom of the TE1 picture next Thursday in D.C.
Nov 23 - 7:40 PM

Terrance Williams caught 4-of-5 targets for 54 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

The 54 yards led the team on a day Dak Prescott only threw for 179 yards, which was his third game in a row held under 180 yards since Ezekiel Elliott's suspension. Williams pops up here and there but is generally off the fantasy map.
Nov 23 - 7:38 PM

Alfred Morris rushed nine times for 36 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Rod Smith also saw nine carries and added two receptions in this backfield timeshare. Morris had a solid Week 11 against the Eagles but took a step back in this one. He gets a #RevengeGame next Thursday night against the Redskins as a TD-dependent RB2/3.
Nov 23 - 7:35 PM

Rod Smith rushed nine times for 41 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers on Thanksgiving.

He and Alfred Morris each carried the ball nine times, with Smith getting the short touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was Dallas' first touchdown since early Week 10. Smith also added two catches for seven yards. The Cowboys were playing from behind all day, so the running game obviously wasn't a big part of the game plan much of the afternoon. Smith is a low-upside RB4.
Nov 23 - 7:32 PM

Dak Prescott completed 20-of-27 passes for 179 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Cowboys' 28-6, Week 12 loss to the Chargers on Thanksgiving.

Prescott has been held under 180 yards passing in all three games without Ezekiel Elliott this month. Rod Smith's late-game touchdown run was the Cowboys' first visit to the end zone since early Week 10. Prescott did have a long touchdown run, but it was wiped out on a blatant hold by LT Tyron Smith, and he threw a 90-yard pick-six to Desmond King in the fourth quarter on a play he didn't see a wide-open Jason Witten in the end zone. Prescott, even in a prime spot, will be hard to trust as a fantasy play next Thursday night against the Redskins.
Nov 23 - 7:27 PM

Cowboys RG Zack Martin exited Week 12 against the Chargers with a concussion.

Dallas got back LT Tyron Smith for this game and promptly lost Martin in the first half. Joe Looney has replaced Martin next to RT La'El Collins.
Nov 23 - 6:12 PM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (groin) is active for Week 12 against the Chargers.

Smith missed the past two games, a period in which the Cowboys' offense went off the rails. Smith's return greatly enhances Dak Prescott's outlook for what should be a high-scoring game.
Nov 23 - 3:08 PM

Cowboys K Dan Bailey (groin) is active for Week 12 against the Chargers.

Bailey is back after missing three games. Inactive for the Cowboys are K Mike Nugent, RB Darren McFadden, CB Bene Benwikere, LB Sean Lee, LB Justin March-Lillard, TE Blake Jarwin and DT Daniel Ross.
Nov 23 - 3:07 PM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (groin, questionable) is expected to play Thursday against the Chargers.

Despite a questionable tag, Smith always seemed likely to return following a limited week of practice. His presence is a massive upgrade for the entire offense and a downgrade for the Chargers DST.

Dan Bailey (groin) expects to play Week 12 against the Chargers.

"Hopefully I'll be back out there," he said. "I had a good week in practice last week, obviously kicked before the game Sunday just to get the work in, so I’m feeling pretty good." Bailey has been out since injuring his groin in Week 8. Mike Nugent has converted 7-of-9 field goals during his absence.
Nov 22 - 5:49 PM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (groin) is practicing Tuesday.

Owners Jerry Jones said Smith has a chance to play on Thursday, and he looks on track after getting in work each of the first two days of practice. Smith returning would be a huge boost for the entire offense.
Nov 21 - 12:11 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said K Dan Bailey (groin) has a chance to play on Thanksgiving.

Bailey was spotted warming up on the field before the Sunday night game, and he got in a limited practice on Monday. Available in most leagues, Bailey will be a plug-and-play kicker this week if he returns.
Nov 21 - 9:52 AM

Cowboys owners Jerry Jones said WLB Sean Lee (hamstring) will not play on Thanksgiving.

It is not a surprise with Lee expected to miss at least two more games. In better news, MLB Anthony Hitchens (groin) is expected to play on Thanksgiving.
