Giants release WR Brandon Marshall

New York Giants Twitter - [Full Article]

A day after Brandon Marshall said in a deleted Instagram story that there was 'no room' for both he and Dez Bryant on the New York Giants, Marshall was released by the team. It's highly doubtful Marshall's words had any impact on his being released or that this now means the Giants will go after Bryant, but the timing is interesting.

Fantasy Impact:

Marshall only suited up in the first five games last season after suffering a season-ending ankle injury. He didn't make much of an impact with the Giants, catching only 18 passes. Marshall just turned 34, and is coming off of an injury, so it will be hard to see him be a difference-maker or fantasy factor this upcoming season.

As for the Giants, this leaves the trio of Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram as their top pass-catchers, with Roger Lewis, Cody Latimer, and Travis Rudolph competing for the No. 3 WR position—unless they bring in someone more talented via the draft.

Cowboys release WR Dez Bryant

The Dallas Cowboys have released WR Dez Bryant. He has been a Cowboy for the past eight seasons after being drafted by the team in 2010 with the 24th pick in the first round. The loss of Bryant currently leaves Allen Hurns as Dallas' top wideout.

Fantasy Impact:

Bryant hasn’t played at an elite level since 2014 and given his giant cap hit, it makes sense for both sides to move on. The loss is a blow for Dak Prescott, who was shaping up as one of the best middle-round values at his position. The Cowboys may pick a receiver or two in the draft, but for now, they will move forward with Terrance Williams, Allen Hurns, Cole Beasley, and Deonte Thompson penciled in as their top four receivers. Prescott needs the team to shore up the position soon, or his value will take a big hit. As for Bryant, his fantasy value will depend on his landing spot, but he's unlikely to find as favorable of a situation as he had in Dallas, where he received a ton of targets from a quality quarterback.

Cowboys sign WR Allen Hurns

The Dallas Cowboys are signing WR Allen Hurns to a two-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Hurns broke out in 2015, catching 64 passes for 1,031 and 10 touchdowns. However, he's dealt with injuries the past two seasons, appearing in only 21 games. He now joins a Cowboys WR corps that includes Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley, and the recently signed Deonte Thompson.

Jason Garrett appears safe, but other Dallas coaching changes possible

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it clear he wasn’t interested in a new head coach.

But he’s going to get rid of some assistants to shuffle the deck a bit.

Via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Tribune, Jones said during his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan that there would be changes on the coaching staff, with some assistants leaving.

He reiterated his previous stance that firing head coach Jason Garrett was “not even a thought for me.”

Fantasy Impact:

According to the story, Jones went on to say he wanted to keep OC Scott Linehan and DC Rod Marinelli so this may not be all that big of a shakeup.

Cowboys TE Jason Witten will return next year

Jason Witten: "Oh, I’m coming back. I love playing this game too much and I know I can play at a high level."

Fantasy Impact:

Witten caught 63 balls for 560 yards and five TDs this past season. He was most often a lower-end TE2 option for fantasy owners but had five games where he posted just one catch for less than 10 yards.

Eagles QB Nick Foles prepping to start in Week 17

Jeff McLane - [Full Article]

Foles said "he's preparing to start" versus the Cowboys on Sunday, and McLane noted he took first-team reps during Thursday's practice.

Fantasy Impact:

No official announcement has been made regarding Foles' playing status for Sunday, but with the Eagles having already clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC and home-field advantage, it would not be a shock if Foles was given the week off or doesn't finish the game if he starts. He's a dicey fantasy option this week, and we have him ranked as our No. 21 QB for the week.
