Joseph Randle had two carries for six yards in Week 13 against the Eagles.

Randle got only three touches behind DeMarco Murray. He remains just a handcuff going into the fantasy playoffs.
Nov 27 - 9:27 PM

Jason Witten was held to one catch for eight yards in Thursday's Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

He finished with just two targets. Witten was a non-factor after finding the end-zone the last two games. He'll have a chance to get back on track in Week 14 against a Bears defense that allows the most fantasy points to tight ends.
Nov 27 - 9:12 PM

Terrance Williams had two catches for 39 yards in Thursday's Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

Williams didn't make his first catch until late in the fourth quarter and was targeted on Tony Romo's first interception. He appeared to give up on the play, allowing Eagles CB Cary Williams to make an easy pick. Williams hasn't found the end-zone since Week 7 and remains just a boom-or-bust WR4.
Nov 27 - 9:08 PM

Dez Bryant caught four passes for 73 yards in Thursday's Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

Bryant was held out of the end-zone for the first time in four weeks. He made a contested 38-yard catch over Bradley Fletcher in the first quarter, but was otherwise held in check. Bryant is on pace for an 89/1,269/13 through 12 games. He'll be a high-end WR1 for next week's matchup with the Bears.
Nov 27 - 8:42 PM

DeMarco Murray rushed 20 times for 73 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

He added a team-high six catches for 40 yards. The Eagles used eight-man fronts to slow down Murray, holding him to just 3.7 YPC. He scored on a one-yard run at the goal-line for the Cowboys' only touchdown. Murray is on pace for 384 carries, 1,903 yards, and 11 touchdowns. He'll be a top-three option in Week 14 against the Bears.
Nov 27 - 8:35 PM

Tony Romo completed 18-of-29 passes for 199 yards with two interceptions in Thursday's Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

Romo struggled to move the offense despite a matchup with an Eagles defense that allowed 345 yards to Zach Mettenberger last week. Both of his interceptions came on bad underthrows, and he had a third pick overturned by defensive holding. Romo finished without a touchdown for just the first time in 38 games. He's on pace for 3,624 yards with and a 29:11 TD/INT ratio this season. Romo will be a back-end QB1 against Chicago's bottom-five secondary in Week 14.
Nov 27 - 8:10 PM

Terrance Williams (broken fingertip) is active for Week 13 against the Eagles.

Williams will be a boom-or-bust WR4 threatening for a zero if he doesn't find the end zone. Inactive for the Cowboys are DT Josh Brent, QB Dustin Vaughan, OT Tony Hills, OT Donald Hawkins, LB Dekoda Watson, CB Tyler Patmon and S Jeff Heath.
Nov 27 - 3:11 PM

Terrance Williams (broken fingertip) is listed as probable for Thursday's Week 13 game against the Eagles.

Williams was upgraded to full on Wednesday after being limited the last two days. He'll wear a splint on his broken finger, but it was never a major concern. Williams is just a touchdown-dependent WR4 despite a favorable matchup with the Eagles' secondary.
Nov 26 - 2:42 PM

Cowboys placed DE Jack Crawford on injured reserve with a broken thumb, ending his season.

Crawford was slapped with a four-week timetable, but the Cowboys couldn't spare the roster spot. He managed two sacks across 143 rotational snaps.
Nov 26 - 2:27 PM

Terrance Williams (broken fingertip) was "limited" in Tuesday's practice, but is expected to be active for Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Williams will wear a splint for the Cowboys' annual Thanksgiving classic. Williams got off to a scorching-hot start this season, but has just 12 total catches over his past six games.

DeMarco Murray is confident he can keep up at his current workload.

Murray is averaging 27.8 touches per game. "As the year goes on, you feel better," Murray said Tuesday. "I feel like I’ve gotten stronger throughout the year, so I have to continue to work hard during the week and it’ll show up on Sundays." The Cowboys have actually eased off the throttle a bit with Murray in recent weeks, giving him an average of "just" 25 touches over their past four games. Murray's workload is more likely to catch up with him in future seasons than 2014.
Nov 25 - 6:28 PM

Terrance Williams suffered a broken fingertip in Sunday night's win over the Giants.

Williams could be limited in practice this week, but shouldn't miss any time. Averaging just four targets over the last three games, he'll be a touchdown-dependent WR3 against the Eagles.
Nov 25 - 11:31 AM

Cowboys DE Jack Crawford suffered a broken thumb in Week 12 and will miss four weeks.

The backup defensive end has amassed eight tackles and two sacks across 143 defensive snaps this season. Crawford will undergo surgery on Tuesday.
Nov 24 - 7:37 PM

Cowboys S Jeff Heath will undergo thumb surgery on Tuesday.

Heath, a reserve safety and special teamer, has been good covering kicks, racking up eight tackles and playing 93 defensive snaps. The second-year UDFA out of Saginaw Valley was forced to start nine games for Dallas in 2013. Heath is expected to be back before the end of the regular season.
Nov 24 - 6:39 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests the Eagles will have trouble covering Jason Witten in Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

Witten does not typically create mismatches at this point in his career. But the Eagles, already without DeMeco Ryans (Achilles), lost Emmanuel Acho (groin) Sunday. Now they'll have to ride with incompetent Casey Matthews as a primary inside linebacker, with rookie Marcus Smith mixing in. Smith is a pass-rusher that was drafted as an outside linebacker. Witten's upside is capped by his limited athletic ability, but he has TE1 appeal Thursday.
