Cowboys re-signed DE LaVar Edwards.

Edwards was waived on Saturday. To create a spot for his return, the Cowboys have waived LB Keith Smith.
Sep 23 - 4:54 PM

Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer (knee) could make his debut in Week 4 against the Saints.

Spencer resumed practicing last week, but wasn't cleared to return. He's coming off microfracture surgery and hasn't appeared in a game since last September. Spencer will likely be available for a limited role if active.

Coach Jason Garrett declined to rule out benching CB Morris Claiborne.

Claiborne turned in another stinker against the Rams, getting beat for a 51-yard touchdown by Brian Quick and a 38-yard gain by Kenny Britt. Through three weeks, the former No. 6 overall pick is PFF's No. 95 corner among 96 qualifiers. The Cowboys could turn to Orlando Scandrick or Sterling Moore opposite Brandon Carr.

Dan Bailey has set a franchise record for consecutive field goals made with 28.

Fantasy owners aren't going to find many better options than Bailey on a week-to-week basis. He plays for an explosive offense in a kicker-friendly stadium and has gone 7-of-8 on field goals from 50+ over the last two seasons. Fire Bailey up for a potential shootout with the Saints in Week 4.

Joseph Randle had two carries for nine yards in Week 3.

Randle played despite being listed as questionable with a concussion. He briefly spelled DeMarco Murray, but saw limited snaps. Randle remains behind Lance Dunbar for No. 2 duties.
Sep 21 - 6:27 PM

Lance Dunbar didn't have any touches in Week 3 against the Rams.

Dunbar was held without a carry, and had just one target in the pass game. It's a step back after he saw 11 touches in Week 2. Dunbar would be used in a committee with Joseph Randle is DeMarco Murray went down.
Sep 21 - 6:23 PM

Cole Beasley caught one pass for nine yards in Week 3 against the Rams.

He was targeted twice by Tony Romo. Beasley has six catches for 61 yards through three games.
Sep 21 - 6:20 PM

Jason Witten had four catches for 49 yards in Week 3 against the Rams.

It was Witten's best game to date, but he's still yet to score a touchdown this season. Witten finished behind only Dez Bryant with five targets. He'll be a low-end TE1 in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 6:19 PM

Terrance Williams caught two passes for 32 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Rams.

Williams had only three targets, but was able to find the end-zone on a crossing route in the fourth quarter. Prior to the touchdown, his only notable play was a 20-yard catch on 3rd-and-14. Williams is no higher than the No. 3 option in the pass game. He's a touchdown-dependent WR3.
Sep 21 - 6:16 PM

Dez Bryant had six catches for 89 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Rams.

Bryant did all of his damage on a 68-yard touchdown against blown coverage in the third quarter. He finished with a team-high seven targets. The Cowboys continue to go run-heavy with Tony Romo still not fully recovered from his back injury, but Bryant is still averaging 82 receiving yards through three games. Bryant will have another plus matchup against the Saints in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 5:58 PM

DeMarco Murray had 24 carries for 100 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Rams.

Murray fumbled on the Cowboys' first drive, but was able to bounce back with a touchdown in the second quarter. He added four catches for 31 yards in the pass game. Murray has over 100 total yards and a touchdown in three straight weeks and remains locked in as a matchup-proof RB1. He'll take on the Saints in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 5:47 PM

Tony Romo completed 18-of-23 passes for 217 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Cowboys' 34-31 win over the Rams.

Romo looked limited by his back injury for most of the game, but managed to find a wide-open Dez Bryant for a 68-yard touchdown. His second touchdown came on a crossing route to Terrance Williams from 12 yards out. Romo's interception was a pick-six to Rams CB Janoris Jenkins on a 3rd-and-8 play in the second quarter. His downfield velocity remains a concern going forward. Romo will be on the QB1 borderline against the Saints in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 4:28 PM

Dez Bryant (shoulder) is active for Week 3 against the Rams.

The Cowboys limited Bryant in practice with a shoulder injury, but his status was never a concern. He's Rotoworld's No. 2 receiver this week. Inactive for the Cowboys are LB Justin Durant, LB Rolando McClain, DT Davon Coleman, QB Dustin Vaughan, DE Anthony Spencer, CB Tyler Patmon, OT Donald Hawkins.
Sep 21 - 11:43 AM

Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Escobar practiced on a limited basis throughout the week and is expected to be available for Sunday's matchup with the Rams. He has just one catch on two targets through two games.
Sep 20 - 8:04 PM

Joseph Randle (concussion) is questionable for Week 3.

Randle returned to practice Friday, but is still in the concussion protocol. He'll need to get cleared on Saturday to play this week. Even if active, Randle is unlikely to see touches behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar.
