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.

Morris Claiborne out for season with torn patellar tendon


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.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Cowboys ruled out three players from the defensive side of the ball for Week 3 against the Rams, based on Friday's injury report.

Defensive linemen Anthony Spencer (knee) was unable to practice Friday after being limited earlier in the week, and will not play in Sunday's game. He will be joined on the sidelined by Davon Coleman (knee) and Justin Durant (groin), both of whom were unable to practice during the week.

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. 


Rolando McClain not looking likely for Week 3


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. 


Rolando McClain's status for Week 3 remains TBD


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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cowboys quarterback Dustin Vaughan, linebacker Justin Durant (groin), nose tackle Ken Bishop, tackle Donald Hawkins, tackle Darrion Weems (shoulder), defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) and defensive end Lavar Edwards (knee) were all ruled inactive Week 2 at Tennessee.

Jason Garrett on Tony Romo: He's human


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was peppered with questions Monday about Tony Romo's careless performance Sunday. Romo threw three interceptions and cost his team a chance at a touchdown by checking out of a running play near the goal line.

Romo got sacked on the play, forcing Dallas to kick a field goal.

"Tony, like everyone else in this room and on the football field yesterday, is human," Garrett said. "He made some decisions over the course of the game that he'd like to have back. That happens every week in the National Football League to every quarterback. You continue to try and learn and continue to try and grow from the situations you're in."


Cowboys DST has a tough time Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Cowboys DST had a tough game Week 1 against the 49ers.

The Dallas offense did the team no favors in the first quarter. A fumble lead to a San Francisco score on the first drive of the game. On the team's third drive, Tony Romo threw an interception that was returned to the 2-yard line. The 49ers were able to score on the next play. 

The Dallas DST gave up two additional touchdowns during the contest. The team did not force any interceptions, and managed just one sack. Dallas failed to force any fumbles.

The Dallas DST will look to improve Week 2 against the Titans.


Cowboys DST to have their hands full Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The Cowboys DST should have their hands full Week 1 against the 49ers.

Dallas had one of the worst defenses in the league last season. While the club attempted to make changes in the draft, it's hard to expect a major turnaround based on rookies. On top of that, the team's best cornerback, Orlando Scandrick, will miss Week 1 due to a suspension. 

The 49ers were not slouches offensively last year. The team allowed opposing defenses to put up just 6.79 Fantasy points per game. That figure ranked as the fifth-lowest in the league. The 49ers offense went through some growing pains during the preseason, but there's still plenty of talent there.

Considering the Cowboys recent track record, and San Francisco's ability to put up big offensive numbers, the Cowboys are not a recommended start in Fantasy Week 1.


Rolando McClain still on track to start Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said Rolando McClain is expected to start at middle linebacker Week 1 against the 49ers, per the team's official website.

Rolando McClain expected to start at MLB for Dallas


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Cowboys appear to be leaning toward using twice-retired linebacker Rolando McClain as their starting middle linebacker in the absence of Sean Lee, who will miss the 2014 season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

The Cowboys are also moving Bruce Carter from weakside to strongside, and Justin Durant will take over as the starting weakside linebacker.

"I think he’s made a lot of progress," head coach Jason Garrett said of McClain, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Whenever you’re a new player coming into a system, you need to just play in the system. You need to get reps. That’s particularly the case with a position like linebacker where there’s a lot to do in terms of communication and understanding what the whole defense is doing.

"He has a lot of those traits. Coming in, it was a matter of learning what we were asking him to do. He embraced that, and I think he’s going to be a part of that mix at linebacker. He’s demonstrated both in practice and in preseason games that he’s worthy of some kind of an opportunity."


George Selvie exits game with shoulder injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Cowboys defensive end George Selvie, who is coming off left shoulder surgery, exited Saturday's preseason game against Miami with a right shoulder injury. Selvie sustained the injury in the first half and was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) The Cowboys have placed cornerback Korey Lindsey on injured reserve on Friday, according to  the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Lindsey injured his hand during training camp.
