To Win a Super Bowl the Cowboys Need to Move on From Dak Prescott

Jacob Harris | May 18th, 2020

I’ve most likely just made a lot of you mad. Don’t get me wrong, Dak Prescott is a solid leader and I’m sure he has some elite quality that I can actually see on the field. This isn’t a joke and it isn’t something I’m taking lightly. I’ve actually been thinking about this a while now and it’s time to say it; the Dallas Cowboys need to move on.

Bold Predictions for the Dallas Cowboys: Dak Prescott

Five Bold Predictions for the Dallas Cowboys

Jacob Harris | May 12th, 2020

Last season ended in a whirlwind of the inability to finish games for the Dallas Cowboys. Jason Garrett was fired seemingly five years too late. Dak Prescott‘s contract has and still hangs in the balance as Jerry Jones and his crew slapped a franchise tag on their starting quarterback as they continue to negotiate a potential long-term deal. So far this offseason, they have lost key defensive pieces in Byron Jones and Jeff Heath, as well as future Hall of Famers Jason Witten and Travis Frederick. A lot don’t know what to expect with this year’s team, so here are my five bold predictions for this season.

Fantasy Football: Veteran Winners and Losers Post-Draft

Mason Thompson | May 2nd, 2020

The draft has come and gone and some teams have improved while some have, well let’s just say tried their best. Of course, teams try to improve their roster, but fantasy football owners also watch where players go and how they impact other player’s situations. I will take a look at the veteran players who won from their team’s drafts, as well as some players that lost fantasy impact.

Dallas Cowboys Pre Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Mike Fanelli | March 1st, 2020

Entering the 2019 season, the Dallas Cowboys had Super Bowl expectations. After starting the season 3-0, averaging 32.3 points per game, Dak Prescott was looking like the second coming of Patrick Mahomes and well deserving of being the highest-paid quarterback in the league. However, the Cowboys struggled to be consistent on both sides of the ball the rest of the season and went 5-8 over their last 13 games, finishing 8-8 on the year. Unable to clinch the NFC East title in week 16, the Cowboys ended up missing the playoffs.

Super Bowl LIV is just three weeks away and yesterday I broke down the complicated ins and outs of free agency. Today I’m going to break down the top upcoming free agents at several positions. A lot of these players will likely be given the franchise or transition tag assuming they don’t reach a long term deal before free agency begins.

Tonight’s game is huge for both teams as the Dallas Cowboys head into Chicago to face the Bears.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

Mike Fanelli | December 5th, 2019 

Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and found out Monday night that they made the playoffs. If you did be thankful for it and if you didn’t, it’s never too early to start preparing for next year, especially in dynasty leagues. With three weeks to go (unless you play in week 17 for some weird reason), every decision on who the start and who to sit is even more critical. To kick off the start of the fantasy playoffs we have a matchup between the Cowboys and Bears. Not only is this game critical to fantasy owners but to both franchises as they fight for the playoffs.

Detroit Lions Week 11 Recap- Cowboys Still “Dem Boyz” For Now

Tom Greene | November 18th, 2019

Ah yes, if you read the title, it tells you a lot about this game. The famed Wiz Khalifa song, “We Dem Boyz“, has been a rallying tune amongst fans since the song came out in 2014. No, not the fight song, simply a rallying tune. Of course, like any Cowboys-related content, it’s been memed. Whether or not it’s funny is up to the reader.

Detroit Lions Week 10 Recap- Lions Find Chicago Overbearing

Tom Greene | November 11th, 2019

The Lions came into this game thinking that a Chicago offense lead by Mitchell Trubisky would at least put a band-aid on the problems that were on the defensive side. It turned out not to be true. While Trubisky only threw for 145 yards, the Lions secondary allowed him to throw for three touchdowns, and that’s all the Bears needed in a 20-13 victory over Detroit.

Jared Goff Happy with how his New Extension Got Done

Brendan Abban | September 5th, 2019 

The Los Angeles Rams and franchise quarterback Jared Goff came to terms on an extension Tuesday that will keep him with the team through the 2024 season. It is a deal that will pay him $110 million in guarantees, the most in NFL history. The deal has a total value of $134 million. Which is why it is so impressive that they kept it quiet.

Dallas Cowboys 2019 Team Preview

Mike Fanelli | July 27th, 2019

The Dallas Cowboys’ 2018 was a journey of two halves. In the first half of the season, they went 3-4 and the offense was struggling, scoring more than 20 points in just two of those games. Then, Jerry Jones pulled a Cowboys’ like move and acquired former Oakland Raiders’ wide receiver Amari Cooper for a 2019 first-round pick. After trading for Cooper, the Cowboys went on to win seven of their last nine games to make the playoffs and win the NFC East title. Continue reading

Dallas Cowboys Season Review

Mike Fanelli | March 2nd, 2019

The 2018 season was like night and day for the Dallas Cowboys. After starting the season 3-4, the Cowboys traded for Oakland Raiders’ wide receiver Amari Cooper and the whole season turned around. With Cooper on the roster, the Cowboys won seven of their last nine games and took home the NFC East title for the second time in three years. After winning their home playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, 24-22, the Cowboys lost to the Los Angeles Rams 30-22 in the divisional round.

Week 15 Streaming Options: QB, TE, K, D/ST, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | December 13th, 2018

It’s Week 2 of the fantasy playoffs for most of you. Hopefully, Dak and Lamar led you to glory. Hopefully, Josh Allen can lead you to glory this week if you can’t get your hands on Dak. I’m hesitant about Lamar Jackson given that Joe Flacco could steal snaps from him. Every point counts now. Full-time starters > quarterbacks named the starters who might surrender some passing snaps. So I would rather play Josh Allen than Lamar Jackson this week despite the Tampa Bay matchup.

Week 13 Waiver Wire Adds

Frank Dyevoich | November 27th, 2018

Reminder: You can’t carry over your Free Agent Aquisition Budget (FAAB) or turn it into real cash and take it with you. There is a real possibility that some of the following studs are available in your league and you must spend every nickel you have to acquire them. For those deeper leagues where the studs below are all taken, there are still some hidden gems out there to strengthen your squad for that final championship run. Spend that money because the time to lay it all on the line is now. The following waiver wire adds reflect a $100 FAAB.

Week 13 Streaming Options: QB, TE, K, D/ST and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | November 27th, 2018

Here we are. It’s the final week of the fantasy regular season. This season has come and gone in the blink of an eye and sadly it will be the end of the line for some of us. For others, this week means everything. Win or go home. In or out. Hopefully, last week’s options brought you closer to the playoffs and hopefully this week’s options lock you into the playoff picture. Let’s check out those options from last week and then look ahead to Week 13. By the way, David Moore my boom play from last week went off this week, as per usual with my deep selections.

Dallas Cowboys In Tough Fight For NFC East Supremacy

Dale Money | November 26th, 2018

In a game they desperately needed in order to gain control in the NFC East, the Dallas Cowboys came up big in claiming a 31-23 victory over the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving day. They’ve won three straight games, since a 28-14 loss to the Tennessee Titans, where they looked dead in the water. Amari Cooper had a bit of a coming out party, contributing back-to-back third-quarter touchdowns.

Week 11 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Frank Dyevoich | November 17th, 2018

This is 2018’s last devastating bye-week as six teams are on bye. With the playoffs looming right around the corner these next three games will determine if you are going to be challenging for a title or if you are going to looking forward to 2019. These next three games are the most important of the season and it is more crucial than ever before that we make the right lineup decisions. So sit tight as I tell you who needs to be on your starting roster this week and who you need to bench in order to avoid the devastating bust performance that could end your season. The following start and sits are recommended based on their matchups this week.

Week 11 Waiver Wire Adds

Frank Dyevoich | November 13th, 2018

Ladies and gentlemen, and children of all ages who can read, we have reached the tipping point of the fantasy season. The playoffs are around the corner and we only have three more weeks to get our teams into postseason shape. The most important piece of advice that I have for all the fantasy owners out there is to be aware of your league’s trade deadline. There is no worse feeling than agreeing on that last trade that puts your team into championship contention and you go to propose it and instead you see those evil words “Deadline passed.”

Week 11 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | November 13th, 2018

Week 11 will offer some new names to the streaming conversation of fantasy football. Streaming has been tough this year as most people who wanted to stream a quarterback every week probably settled on keeping their successful streamer long term like Mitch Trubisky, Jared Goff, and maybe even Andy Dalton to name a few. The tight end landscape has been brutal all year and with key injuries, more and more tight ends are surpassing the 50% owned percentage making them ineligible to be streamed.

Start Em’ Sit Em’ Week 9

Frank Dyevoich | November 3rd, 2018

With six teams on bye this week, our start/sit decisions become more crucial than ever. While it is tough to sit players who have a decent role on their team, it is the tough decisions that separate the champions from everyone else. Based on this week’s matchups, I recommend starting and sitting the following players.

Will Offensive Woes Continue For Dallas?

Mike Quintero | September 30th, 2018

The Cowboys’ offense has not looked good through three weeks of the season. Losing Dez Bryant and Jason Witten hurt and the O-line is banged up, but there may be an underlying issue with America’s Team that no one is addressing.

Dallas Cowboys: 2018 Season Preview

Carl Taylor | August 23rd, 2018

The Cowboys dealt with injuries to starting linebacker Sean Lee, a 6-game suspension to starting RB Ezekiel Elliot, and a 4-game suspension to DT/DE David Irving. With so much that happened last season, they will look to put 2017 behind them and move forward to get this team over the hump this upcoming season.
