News: The Cowboys are have released starting safety Gerald Sensabaugh. The move will save the Cowboys about $1.4 million against the salary cap in 2013. Sensabaugh has been with Dallas for the last four seasons, missing just two games. After having his best years in 2010 and 2011, Sensabaugh's production slacked off last season, as he had just 58 tackles and no interceptions.
Analysis: Keep an eye on where Sensabaugh lands, and he could be useful as a low-end defensive back in IDP leagues. Sensabaugh can be worth a late-round pick in deeper formats.
News: Cowboys defensive back Gerald Sensabaugh (calf) was active for the Week 4 Monday night game against Chicago. Sensabaugh was expected to play as he was listed as probable on the official injury report entering Monday's game.
Analysis: Sensabaugh has been banged up in the early going but Dallas needed his services in the Monday night game against the Bears. He can be active in deeper Fantasy IDP formats. He has low-end value in that regard.

Sensabaugh is dealing with a calf injury and was ruled inactive for the Week 3 contest after being doubtful for the game coming in. Sensabaugh was also on the injury report for Week 2, but played after dealing with a concussion.
Analysis: Sensabaugh has certainly been banged up to start the year for the Cowboys. He has racked up five tackles in two games and has low-end Fantasy value, when healthy, in most IDP formats.
News: Cowboys defensive back Gerald Sensabaugh (concussion) has been ruled active for Week 2 against the Seahawks.
Analysis: Sensabaugh recorded three tackles in the season opener and while he starts in Dallas, his Fantasy appeal in minimal. Continue to ignore him in all but the deepest of IDP formats.

News: The Cowboys' official website reports safety Gerald Sensabaugh missed practice Monday with concussion-like symptoms, but he intends to play Week 2 against the Seahawks. Sensabaugh said he suffered the injury late in the Week 1 opener against the Giants.
Analysis: Sensabaugh is the Cowboys' starting free safety. He has 12 interceptions in his previous four seasons and has surpassed 70 tackles in a season three times since 2008, but he remains more of a low-end Fantasy defensive back when healthy.
News: Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh had arthroscopic knee surgery and might miss the start of training camp, a source tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The Cowboys are calling the procedure a minor clean-up.
Analysis: Sensabaugh has topped 70 total tackles in three of his last four seasons but hasn't been massively productive since a three-year spell from 2008 to 2010 where he averaged over eight passes defensed and three interceptions per season. He's best as a reserve for Fantasy.
News: The Cowboys locked up one of their safeties for the future on Friday, agreeing to a five-year contract with FS Gerald Sensabaugh, worth around $22 million. Sensabaugh signed a one-year deal as an unrestricted free agent back in training camp.
Analysis: Sensabaugh is having another productive season in the secondary for the Cowboys, who figured it was time to lock him up long-term. Sensabaugh, however, is not a weekly stat machine for Fantasy owners, so he remains a low-end option when healthy.
News: Cowboys FS Gerald Sensabaugh said he expects to practice Wednesday and should be able to play Week 13 at Arizona, despite a painful right foot injury that plagued him last Thursday against Miami. Sensabaugh said the pain was intense throughout the game but he doesnt expect to miss more than Mondays practice.
Analysis: Sensabaugh was active Week 12, but he wasn't as effective as previous weeks. Sensabaugh has 57 tackles and two interceptions in 11 games. He is merely a low-end Fantasy DB when active.
News: Cowboys DB Gerald Sensabaugh (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 12 vs. Miami. He did not practice all week.
Analysis: Sensabaugh is hoping to play Thursday without practicing, but only time will tell. Perhaps Fantasy owners should look to healthier alternatives because Sensabaugh might be limited. Sensabaugh is a low-end Fantasy DB when active.
News: Dallas DB Gerald Sensabaugh had another solid game Week 11 in a win at Washington. Sensabaugh recorded a fumble recovery in the game and added nine total tackles.
Analysis: The nine tackles are a season high for Sensabaugh, who has two interceptions on the season as well. Sensabaugh can help with interceptions in Fantasy, but he doesn't provide enough production overall to be worth using other than as a low-end Fantasy DB in IDP formats.
News: The Cowboys intercepted Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson three times in Week 9, and DB Gerald Sensabaugh collected the final of the trio of picks. It was his second interception of the season. He also made three tackles on the afternoon.
Analysis: Sensabaugh was a bit fortunate to get the pick, as Jackson made a desperate throw with just seconds left in a losing effort. That's not to say that Sensabaugh can't help with interceptions in Fantasy, but he doesn't provide enough production overall to be worth using other than as a low-end Fantasy DB in IDP formats.
News: Cowboys S Gerald Sensabaugh said via his Twitter account that he was "OK" after suffering a concussion during Week 4 against the Lions. Sensabaugh sustained the injury in the third quarter after colliding with teammate Anthony Spencer. Feeling great nothing serious fans keep your heads up were gonna get back to work and make this a great season, Sensabaugh wrote. He finished with four tackles, an interception and a pair of passes defended in the 34-30 loss to Detroit.
Analysis: While Sensabaugh says he is alright, he will still have to go through the NFL's concussion protocol, which requires a series of battery tests. The good news is the Cowboys have a bye in Week 5, so he will have some extra time to rest up. Fantasy owners should continue to monitor his status moving forward to see when he will be cleared to return to action. Sensabaugh can be considered a low-end Fantasy DB in the majority of IDP formats, when healthy.
News: For the third straight year, SS Gerald Sensabaugh will play on a one-year deal. The six-year vet agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal to re-sign with the Cowboys on Tuesday.
Analysis: Sensabaugh totaled a career-high 71 tackles and five interceptions in 2010 for Dallas. He has 66 or more tackles in three straight seasons and is an underrated NFL safety. Sensabaugh should compete for a starting spot with Dallas and remains a low-end Fantasy DB.
News: Dallas DB Gerald Sensabaugh left the Week 15 game against the Redskins before halftime with a concussion and could not return. Sensabaugh had recorded three tackles and picked off a Rex Grossman pass prior to leaving.
Analysis: Sensabaugh now has four interceptions on the season and has one in back-to-back weeks for Dallas. Hopefully he can return next week in Arizona. He is a low-end option in Fantasy IDP leagues, when healthy, however.
News: Cowboys DB Gerald Sensabaugh registered his third interception of the season in the Week 14 game against the Eagles. With plenty of pressure on QB Michael Vick, he sailed a ball high to the intended WR and right into Sensabaugh's arms. He added four tackles -- three solo -- on the night.
Analysis: Sensabaugh is just one pick away from tying the mark he set in 2008, his last year as a Jacksonville Jaguar. He is an average tackler in the box and creates the occasional turnover. If starters are dealing with injury in Fantasy play, Sensabaugh could be a nice fill-in for the playoffs.
News: Cowboys DB Gerald Sensabaugh followed up his seven-tackle, one-sack performance last week with a solid game against the Giants in Week 7. The 27-year-old earned his first interception of the year in the first quarter when QB Eli Manning and WR Hakeem Nicks could not hook up. The pass went off the hands of the receiver and fell right into the waiting arms of Sensabaugh. He also recorded four tackles in the 41-35 loss.
Analysis: Sensabaugh has made a name for himself in Fantasy over the past few weeks and could be helping some owners in IDP formats. He has 27 tackles on the year and looks to be coming into his own with Dallas. Keep an eye on Sensabaugh as he could be a sleeper later on in the year.
News: Cowboys DB Gerald Sensabaugh had one of his better games of the season in Week 6 against the Vikings. Sensabaugh recorded seven tackles, including his first sack of the season in the 24-21 loss.
Analysis: Sensabaugh has 23 tackles on the season, but is still looking for his first interception. He usually doesn't stat enough to be a viable option in most IDP formats. Leave on the waiver wire heading into Week 7.
News: Dallas DB Gerald Sensabaugh (shoulder) is likely to miss the rest of the preseason due to his shoulder injury, reports ESPN.com Sunday. The Cowboys say Sensabaugh sitting out is mostly precautionary as they want him healthy for the start of the regular season.
Analysis: Sensabaugh finished 2009 with 66 tackles in his first year with the Cowboys after coming over from Jacksonville. He added one interception. Those aren't the stats of a Fantasy phenom by any stretch -- keep him on waivers and consider him as a one-week replacement option during the season.
News: Safety Gerald Sensabaugh has signed his contract offer to return for a second season with the Dallas Cowboys and sixth in the NFL. Sensabaugh made 81 tackles last season, sixth on the team. He also had a career-best 10 pass breakups, an interception and five special teams tackles in 15 starts.
Analysis: In 65 career games, Sensabaugh has 249 tackles, 23 pass breakups, one forced fumble and seven interceptions. Those aren't the stats of a Fantasy phenom by any stretch -- keep him on waivers and consider him as a one-week replacement option during the season.
News: Several Dallas defenders played well Sunday at the Eagles. DeMarcus Ware had four tackles, Keith Brooking had five tackles and a sack, Bradie James had five tackles, Jay Ratliff had five tackles and two sacks, Michael Jenkins had two tackles and an interception and Gerald Sensabaugh had six tackles and an interception.
Analysis: The Cowboys defense has been playing well the past four games, and hopefully that will continue. Look for Dallas to pressure Green Bay in Week 10 and plan on using all of your regular IDP options against the Packers.
News: Game-day inactives for the Cowboys in Kansas City: WR Roy Williams, RB Felix Jones, S Mike Hamlin, S Gerald Sensabaugh, G Montrae Holland, T Pat McQuistan and LB Curtis Johnson. The inactive third quarterback is Stephen McGee.

News: Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh will have surgery to repair a broken plate in his right thumb and could be out up to a month. Sensabaugh had a plate implanted after breaking his thumb in college. He cracked the plate Sunday during Dallas' 17-10 loss at Denver. Sensabaugh played the week after his operation in college, but coach Wade Phillips said Monday that he doesn't expect such a quick turnaround this time. Patrick Watkins replaced him against the Broncos and will remain in the lineup.
Analysis: Sensabaugh was a minor contributor for the Cowboys this season. Neither he nor Watkins belong on Fantasy rosters.
News: Cowboys S Gerald Sensabaugh left with sore ribs in Week 1 after a fourth-quarter collision with Bucs receiver Michael Clayton. Sensabaugh has eight tackles (four solo) before leaving the game.
Analysis: Sensabaugh had his best season as a pro in 2008 with the Jaguars. He totaled 70 tackles and four interceptions. He used that to land a one-year deal from the Cowboys. Sensabaugh is the Cowboys' starting strong safety, so his health is important to Dallas. As for Fantasy, he has low-end appeal when active.
News: The Cowboys signed former Jaguars safety Gerald Sensabaugh to a one-year deal on Tuesday. The signing was reported on the Cowboys' Web site. Sensabaugh started 13 games for Jacksonville last season and had a team-leading four interceptions. Sensabaugh played for Cowboys defensive backs coach Dave Campo when Campo was secondary coach at Jacksonville, and will also be reunited with special teams coach Joe DeCamillis, who also came over from the Jaguars. Sensabaugh was arrested earlier this offseason for driving on a suspended license and could face discipline from the NFL.
Analysis: Sensabaugh has a shot to garner some stats if he sees regular playing time with the Cowboys. We'll have to wait and see on this one, but in the meantime, he can be left undrafted in IDP league play.
News: Jaguars safety Gerald Sensabaugh, scheduled to be a free agent this offseason, was arrested last week for driving on a suspended license in his hometown of Kingsport in East Tennessee. The arrest Friday was Sensabaugh's third by police there since 2007. He was charged with reckless driving in May 2008 and stopped in March 2007 for speeding. During that stop, police found a loaded 9mm pistol along with another loaded magazine. According to a police report, officer Amanda Lunsford saw Sensabaugh's black Bentley circling a block around 2 p.m. Friday and arrested him after discovering his license had been suspended for "multiple violations" and failure to satisfy a citation.
Analysis: Once a decent Fantasy DB, Sensabaugh now has minimal Fantasy value and should not be owned no matter what the outcome of this latest incident. He'll have a hard time finding work with his history of off-field problems.
News: Jaguars DB Gerald Sensabaugh and DL John Henderson played well Sunday at Chicago. Sensabaugh had five tackles and an interception, and Henderson had four tackles and a sack.
Analysis: Sensabaugh and Henderson are low-end Fantasy options, but they can be used if needed in Week 15 against Green Bay.
News: Jaguars DB Gerald Sensabaugh led his team with 10 tackles in a Week 9 loss to the Bengals. Also contributing with nice efforts were LB Justin Durant (seven tackles, one for loss), DB Reggie Nelson (five tackles) and LB Mike Peterson (five tackles).
Analysis: Sensabaugh pops up with tackle totals like this on occasion, but he's not consistent enough to be used on a weekly basis. Peterson and Nelson have some low-end value in deeper IDP leagues, while Durant should be ignored. The Jaguars play at Detroit in Week 10.
News: Jaguars DB Gerald Sensabaugh had two solo tackles and picked off a Jay Cutler pass during a Week 6 win against the Broncos. It was his second interception of the season.
Analysis: Sensabaugh is well on his way to having a career season and has rebounded nicely after missing most of 2007 with a shoulder injury. Continue to view Sensabaugh as a low-end Fantasy DB.
News: The Florida Times-Union reports Jaguars safety Gerald Sensabaugh was arrested May 30 for reckless driving stemming from an incident in which he was allegedly "doing wheelies on a motorcycle." The arrest was Sensabaughs second in a little more than a year in his hometown and occurred on the same stretch of road on which he was arrested last March. Sensabaugh's latest arrest could prove detrimental in him regaining status as a starter. The safety spent all but two games last season on the injured reserve after undergoing surgery to repair the labrums on both shoulders. Sensabaugh has been on the field with the second team in recent organized team activities, playing behind Brian Williams, who was recently moved to safety from cornerback.
Analysis: A fifth-round selection in 2005, Sensabaugh has played 34 games for the Jags with 11 career starts. Sensabaugh has registered 86 tackles, two interceptions and a fumble recovery. He has minimal Fantasy value and should not be owned no matter what the outcome of this latest incident.
News: Jaguars restricted free agent Gerald Sensabaugh signed his one-year tender and will play for the club in 2008. He'll be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
Analysis: Sensabaugh doesn't post enough stats to warrant use in Fantasy play. Ignore him for now.
News: The Jacksonville Jaguars placed safety Gerald Sensabaugh on injured reserve Wednesday and re-signed safety Jamaal Fudge.
Analysis: Sensabaugh injured his shoulder in Sunday's 13-7 win over Atlanta. The third-year player had started both games this season, getting eight tackles and a fumble recovery. Drop him in all IDP Fantasy leagues if you were using him for some reason.
News: According to The Sports Xchange, Jaguars S Gerald Sensabaugh is getting a second opinion, but he may need shoulder surgery that will sideline him for the season. S Sammy Knight replaced Sensabaugh when he went out with a shoulder injury, but the Jaguars could decide to switch CB Brian Williams to safety and play Scott Starks or Aaron Glenn at cornerback.
Analysis: While healthy, Sensabaugh was nothing more than a low-end reserve DB in IDP leagues. None of his potential replacements get our toes tingling, either.
News: Jaguars.com reports that the team has cut veteran strong safety Donovin Darius. Rookie Reggie Nelson is expected to compete for Darius' spot with Gerald Sensabaugh playing at free safety.
Analysis: Darius may have never recovered fully from a torn ACL suffered in 2005, especially considering his subpar stats in 10 games last year, which ended with him going on IR with shoulder and ankle injuries. The hard hitting safety should get some looks elsewhere but will never be as solid as he once was. As for Nelson, expect him to step into Darius' role and be a candidate for 75 total tackles. Use a late-round pick on him in IDP drafts and an early- to middle-round choice in rookie-only drafts. Sensabaugh should post statistics akin to a reserve Fantasy DB.
News: Jaguars safety Gerald Sensabaugh was arrested early Monday morning and charged with speeding and carrying a firearm without a permit. Sensabaugh, 23, was pulled over after an officer spotted him driving 86 mph in a 55 mph zone. When asked if he had any weapons in the car, Sensabaugh told the officer he had a pistol, but did not have a permit to carry it. The officer found a loaded 9mm pistol in the console along with another fully loaded clip. Sensabaugh was booked into Kingsport City Jail on the charges, both misdemeanors, and was released about 2:30 a.m. after posting a $750 bond.
Analysis: Sensabaugh started several games towards the end of the 2006 season and was a potential starter heading into 2007. He will be subject to a suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy and may miss some playing time. This will dash any potential value he would have had and is now at best a bye-week DB replacement in the deepest of IDP leagues.
News: The Jaguars DST got a 93-yard kickoff return from Maurice Jones-Drew against the Colts. LB Daryl Smith had eight tackles and a sack. DB Brian Williams had six tackles. DL Marcus Stroud had three tackles and a sack. DB Gerald Sensabaugh had two tackles and an interception. DL John Henderson had four tackles. DB Rashean Mathis had three tackles.
Analysis: Consider the Jaguars a No. 2 DST option against the Titans. Use all IDP players as needed.

DL Marcus Stroud had three tackles and a sack. DL Bobby McCray had a sack. DL Rob Meier had a sack. LB Kenneth Pettway had a sack. LB Daryl Smith had four tackles. LB Clint Ingram had eight tackles.
Analysis: Consider the Jaguars a low-end No. 2 DST for Week 14 against the Colts. Use all IDP players as needed despite the difficult matchup.
News: Jaguars DL Marcus Stroud (ankle), DB Donovin Darius (knee) and LB Jorge Cordova (hamstring) are questionable, while DB Terry Cousin (groin), DL Bobby McCray (shoulder), LB Daryl Smith (biceps), LB Clint Ingram (shoulder), DB Rashean Mathis (hamstring), LB Brian Iwuh (shin), RB Derrick Wimbush (ankle), TE George Wrightster (back), DL John Henderson (hamstring), DB Brian Williams (foot), DL Marcellus Wiley (groin), DB Gerald Sensabaugh (shoulder), DB Dee Webb (shoulder), DB Nick Sorensen (head) and WR Ernest Wilford (thigh) are listed as probable for Week 11 vs. N.Y. Giants.
Analysis: Of the injured players, Darius, McCray, Mathis, Henderson, Smith and Wilford are the only players who should be owned in Fantasy leagues at this point.
News: DB Scott Starks (ribs) and DB Gerald Sensabaugh (ankle) are listed as probable for the Jags in Week 1.
Analysis: Neither of these players is owned in 1 percent of CBS SportsLine leagues. Ignore them at this point.
