Cowboys DST take advantage of mistakes


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) The Cowboys were expected to give up some points in Week 15 against an Eagles team that ranks in the top five in offense, and they did, surrendering 27 on 294 yards. But they also took advantage of a mistake-prone quarterback, sacking Mark Sanchez four times and intercepting him twice.

The Cowboys also recovered two fumbles in the contest. The four takeaways were the most they've had in a game this season. The four sacks were their most since Week 10.

Believe it or not, it was the best performance for the Cowboys DST this season. Going by standard CBSSports.com scoring, it had 16 Fantasy points, only its third game in 10 with double-digit scoring. Clearly, it hasn't been the most useful Fantasy unit this season. Given its tough matchup Week 16 against Indianapolis, you'll want to leave it on waivers.


Cowboys DT Josh Brent skips trip to Philadelphia


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent did not make the flight to Philadelphia on Saturday and has been ruled out for Sunday's divisional clash against the Eagles, per the Star-Telegram. Brent is nursing a calf injury and was designated as doubtful leading up to the game. He has appeared in only one game this season.

Cowboys defense unspectacular Sunday


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) Coming off their bye, the Cowboys didn't have a standout defense performance Week 12 at the Giants, giving up 28 points on 417 yards. They had just two sacks and one interception.

The Cowboys DST was at its best against the Jaguars in Week 10, scoring 14 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues, but of course, every DST is at its best against the Jaguars. For the season, it ranks just 21st at the position. With the Eagles coming to town in Week 13, you should probably avoid the Cowboys DST in Fantasy.


Cowboys' Jerry Jones: Tyler Patmon will miss at least two weeks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) Cowboys cornerback Tyler Patmon is expected to two-to-four weeks with a sprained MCL, per the team's official website. Patmon sustained the injury on Sunday in London against the Jaguars. He has seven combined tackles and an interception on the year.

TD saves the Cowboys DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) The Cowboys weren't at their best defensively Week 9 against Arizona, allowing 28 points on 339 yards, but the Cowboys DST still had a strong showing in Fantasy thanks to an interception returned for a touchdown on the team's first defensive series of the game.

It was just the second touchdown for the Cowboys DST this season. It also had two sacks in the contest.

Though the Cowboys have done a good job of limiting points and yardage this season, they've been lacking in big plays on the defensive side of the ball. Still, the Cowboys DST is as capable as any of capitalizing on probably the most favorable matchup of all Week 10 at Jacksonville.


Tony Romo says Week 9 status not about pain tolerance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said his status for Sunday's game against Arizona depends not on pain tolerance but on his ability "to be productive in some fashion," reports the Dallas Morning News.

"If it turns out to be just the pain tolerance, I will play," Romo said. "That part has never been an issue. But you’ve got to wait to see.

"It will be about your ability to be productive in some fashion. That part of it, we will continue to evaluate."

Romo took a knee to his back in the third quarter Monday night. He underwent a CT scan Tuesday, but the team hasn't specified what was found.

"I don’t want to get into specifics about what it is," Romo said. "It will be something you’ll look at each day, figure out a way to manage it and go from there.

"It has nothing to do with back surgery or anything like that. It could have happened years ago and it would have been the same thing. It’s part of playing football."

To play Sunday, Romo said, "at a certain point there needs to be a shift in the way you feel that shows you’re able to do the fundamental things that need to get done. From there, you need to get the doctor’s clearance.

"You take those steps and go."

Romo, who had offseason back surgery, did not practice Wednesday. Brandon Weeden would start if Romo can't play Sunday.


Matchup doesn't help Cowboys so much


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/28/2014) The Cowboys DST had what seemed like a gimme matchup in Week 8, hosting a Redskins team that was on its third quarterback this season. But while Colt McCoy didn't exactly rewrite the record books, he didn't embarrass himself either, taking three sacks and throwing one interception in what was ultimately an overtime victory for the Redskins.

In all, the Cowboys allowed 20 points on 409 yards. It was a performance more or less in line with the rest of their season. They've been short on big plays, their three sacks in Week 8 representing a season high, but they've generally limited scoring, allowing an average of 19.6 points on 347.0 yards in their last five games.

Still, if this was the best they could do with a favorable matchup, then you shouldn't have high hopes for the Cowboys DST with what could be a shaky one Week 9 against Arizona.


Cowboys LB Bruce Carter back at practice Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter returned to practice Thursday after missing the last three games due to a strained quadriceps. The Cowboys are preparing to face the Redskins in Week 8.

Identifying a few streaming DST options


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) If you need to pick up and play a DST unit in Week 8, Jamey Eisenberg identifies three worth snagging in his waiver-wire column: the Colts (59 percent owned) in Pittsburgh, the Cowboys (43 percent) against Washington, and the Dolphins (36 percent) in Jacksonville.

Cowboys LB Bruce Carter expects to practice this week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter has missed the last three games due to a thigh injury, but said he expects to practice this week. Carter did some running prior to Sunday's game against the Giants, per ESPN.

"For the most part, I'm able to do everything I need to do," Carter said. "I got a couple of extra days to get ready, given we have a Monday night game."


A lackluster performance for Cowboys DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) One week after surprising at Seattle, limiting the defending Super Bowl champions to 206 yards of total offense, the Cowboys took a half step back Week 7 against New York. True, they held the Giants to 21 points, but on 352 yards. They also didn't have a sack or an interception, their only big plays coming in the form of fumble recoveries.

The Cowboys haven't had a standout defensive showing all season, but they've been steady on that side of the ball, no doubt benefiting from the offense's increased reliance on the running game.

You may not be particularly excited about starting the Cowboys DST in Fantasy, but you can't really go wrong with it either. It does have an especially favorable matchup Week 8 against the Redskins, who may end up starting third-string quarterback Colt McCoy.


Cowboys defense surprises in Seattle


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) In Week 6, the Cowboys accomplished what had been a near-impossible task in recent years: They went to Seattle and won, beating the Seahawks 30-23. The defense was a big part of that. The Cowboys limited the Seahawks to just 206 yards, sacking the ultra-efficient Russell Wilson once and also coaxing an interception out of him.

It was the second straight game in which the Cowboys allowed fewer than 300 yards and the third straight in which they allowed fewer than 24 points.

They haven't had many sacks, which has kept the Cowboys DST from standing out in Fantasy, but it's proven to be a reliable enough unit to get some looks when it has the right matchup. It's kind of an iffy option for Week 7 against the Giants, who have been up and down offensively this year, but if you don't know where else to turn, the Cowboys DST certainly isn't an embarrassing play.


Cowboys defense gets the job done


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Cowboys held the Texans to just two offensive touchdowns Sunday, in a 20-17 win in Week 5.

The Cowboys allowed just 330 yards of total offense and held the Texans to just one touchdown through three quarters before a late rally. Though they held the Texans at bay, the Cowboys defense failed to contribute much in the way of big plays, forcing just one turnover and recording no sacks.

The Cowboys continue to play over expectations defensively, and enter Week 6 against the Seahawks allowing 20.6 points per game through five games. 


Cowboys DST actually looking respectable


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/30/2014) According to standard CBSSports.com scoring, the Cowboys DST turned in its third straight double-digit effort in Week 4 -- and against the Saints, of all teams.

Once again, turnovers were the Cowboys' specialty. They intercepted a pass and recovered two fumbles, with Jack Crawford and Henry Melton each contributing a sack. They also limited the Saints' normally explosive offense to just 17 points on 438 yards.

The Cowboys' five takeaways are tied for fourth in the league and a big reason why the Cowboys DST ranks 15th in standard CBSSports.com leagues. If not for a poor showing Week 1 against the 49ers, it'd rank even higher than that.

The Cowboys have what looks to be a more favorable matchup Week 5 against Houston, making their DST worth considering in 12-team leagues.


Cowboys LB Bruce Carter day to day with strained quad


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Monday linebacker Bruce Carter suffered a strained quad Sunday vs. New Orleans. Carter is being listed as day to day.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said on his weekly radio show that further tests revealed a torn patellar tendon for cornerback Morris Claiborne, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He is out for the remainder of the season.

Claiborne will be moved to the injured reserve list, finishing the year with just one interception and seven total tackles (five solo).


Morris Claiborne skips practice after getting benched


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne skipped the team's practice Tuesday and angrily left the practice facility after being informed that he was being replaced in the starting lineup, ESPNDallas.com reports.

Claiborne could be fined by the team for skipping practice or conduct detrimental to the team. He ranks 91 out of 96 cornerbacks over the first three weeks of the season, per Pro Football Focus' cumulative cornerback rating. Orlando Scandrick will take over a starting cornerback position.


Henry Melton dealing with hamstring strain


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Cowboys defensive tackle Henry Melton is unsure if he'll be able to practice Wednesday after suffering a hamstring strain in Sunday's win, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"We’ll come in here and see how it feels in the morning," Melton said. "If they feel like I can go, I’ll go. If not, we’ll just wait for Thursday."

Melton said he injured his hamstring early in Sunday's game but was able to play through the injury. He managed to recover a fumble late in the first half of the win.


Justin Durant to practice, Rolando McClain yet to be cleared


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Cowboys linebacker Justin Durant will return to practice Wednesday and plans to play in Week 4 against the Saints, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"That's the goal," said Durant, who has missed the last two games with a groin injury.

Linebacker Rolando McClain has yet to be cleared to return to practice after missing Sunday's game with a groin injury.

"You have to get to a certain point before you can get on the practice field," McClain said. "I feel better than last week."


Bruce Carter scores touchdown for Dallas defense in Week 3


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter returned an interception 25 yards in the fourth quarter Sunday to score a key touchdown in his team's 34-31 win over the Rams in Week 3.

Carter put the Cowboys up 10 points before Rams scored a late touchdown by intercepting Austin Davis for the first time in the game. Cornerback Morris Claiborne added an interception on St. Louis' final offensive drive to seal the game for the Cowboys. Defensive lineman Henry Melton recovered a Rams fumble in Dallas territory late in the first half to help turn the tide after the defense surrendered 21 unanswered points to begin the game. The Cowboys defense faces a tough test in Week 4 when Drew Brees and the Saints come marching into town after a big win.

Additionally, linebacker Rolando McClain (groin) is doubtful after missing the entire week. Defensive lineman Lavar Edwards (knee) is questionable, while George Selvie (shoulder) and Ken Bishop (illness) are both probable for the game and expected to play.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain (groin) "probably" will not play in Week 3 against the Rams, team owner Jerry Jones told a local radio station Friday, via the Star-Telegram.

McClain has been unable to practice throughout the week with a groin strain, and his official status will be declared when the team's injury report comes out later in the day.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain missed a second straight practice Thursday after suffering a groin strain in the second half Sunday against the Titans. His status for Week 3 against the Rams is still undecided.

"We certainly have confidence in his ability to play, but we believe in practice," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said, per The Dallas Morning News. "He has to practice this week in some way, shape or form for us to believe that he can play in the game, so hopefully as the week goes on, he’s able to do get out there and get some snaps."


Cowboys hold Titans to 10 points during Week 2 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Cowboys defense stepped up in a big way during a 26-10 win Week 2 at Tennessee. Dallas held Tennessee to 314 yards (82 rushing) and one offensive touchdown Sunday.

The defense had a strong showing in the first half, as the Cowboys jumped out to a 16-0 lead by halftime. Titans quarterback Jake Locker completed just 4 of 12 passes for 26 yards in the first half.

Dallas finished with two interceptions and sacked Locker two times. The Cowboys are back in action Week 3 at St. Louis.
