Cowboys sign WR Randall Cobb

Randall Cobb has agreed to a deal with Cowboys. It's a one-year deal worth $5 million.

Fantasy Impact:

The Cowboys lost Cole Beasley in the slot, so his 5.4 targets per game are up for grabs. It's unlikely the Cobb develops into a fantasy starter anytime soon, but he might have some spot start appeal in PPR formats if things go his way.

Bills to sign WR Cole Beasley to a four-year deal

Mike Garafolo - [Full Article]

Bills aren't done at WR. They will sign WR Cole Beasley, sources say. He'll get $29 million over four years.

Fantasy Impact:

Beasley will play the slot for the Bills, a role that was manned mostly by Zay Jones and Isaiah McKenzie last year. Beasley could have some value in PPR formats, though Josh Allen doesn't seem like the kind of quarterback to check down all that often.

Jason Witten ends retirement, will return to Cowboys in 2019

Thursday, February 28, 2019, 2:25pm

Dallas Cowboys - [Full Article]

Jason Witten has decided he isn’t done playing just yet.

Although he retired from the NFL last May, the future Hall of Famer is coming back to the Cowboys for what will be his 16th pro season. Witten played 15 years for the Cowboys from 2003-17, which included 11 Pro Bowls, the most in team history by any offensive player.

Fantasy Impact:

Blake Jarwin had a couple of solid games (7-56, 4-45) late in the year before exploding for a 7-119-3 line against the Giants in Week 17. He didn't do much in the playoffs (5-32 combined in two games). Geoff Swaim was actually playing ahead of Jarwin prior to a season-ending wrist injury. Swaim caught 26 passes for 242 yards and a touchdown in nine games. Witten figures to return as the starter, though it's no sure thing. He was the No. 9 tight end (PPR) in 2017.

Cowboys unsure of offensive coaching roles after Scott Linehan fired

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Jerry Jones confirmed the Cowboys have added former quarterback Jon Kitna to their staff. The team, though, has not made any decisions about who will call plays or what titles Kitna and Kellen Moore will carry next season.

“We’re still in the throes of evaluation,” Jones said, via David Helman of the team website. “We’re in no hurry.”

Fantasy Impact:

With Kitna on board, the Cowboys likely won’t hire anyone else outside the organization, the story said. Garrett could return to being the play-caller. Jones said Garrett’s involvement in the offense “could be more or less.” Garrett called the plays in 2011 and 2012, his first two full seasons as head coach, before turning it over to Bill Callahan. Scott Linehan replaced Callahan as the play-caller in 2014, but the Cowboys fired Linehan as offensive coordinator last week, the story continued.

Beasley: Cowboys front office 'pushes' who gets the ball

Cole Beasley on Twitter - [Full Article]

Cole Beasley: Honestly, the front office pushes who they want to get the ball to.

Fantasy Impact:

Beasley is about to become a free agent and based on this tweet it seems he may not be back with the Cowboys. Beasley went on to say he hasn't been a huge priority when it comes to catches. "Maybe that will change but I’m not sure. More balls come my way in 2 minute drill where nothing is planned," Beasley's tweet continued.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz should have no long term issues with his back

Monday, January 14, 2019, 6:54pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Carson Wentz and his doctors can’t “pinpoint exactly when” his back injury happened. The medical staff discovered the fracture after the Eagles’ loss to the Cowboys on Dec. 9.

The Eagles starting quarterback missed the final five games, including two in the postseason, though the Eagles kept him on the 53-player roster in hopes he would heal in time to return this season.

Rest and rehab will heal the fracture, without Wentz needing surgery.

Related players: Nick Foles

Fantasy Impact:

Wentz's long term status with the Eagles appears secure. The Birds are not expected to bring back Foles, who led the team to the Super Bowl last year and then an unlikely playoff berth with a late rally this season.
