Rams and RB Lance Dunbar agreed to a 1-year deal worth up to $3m, source told ESPN.

Fantasy Impact:

Benny Cunningham is a free agent, so this signing may be in preparation of his departure. Dunbar is a solid pass-catching back, but he has missed 15 games in the last two seasons.

The Cowboys re-signed WR Terrance Williams to a 4-year deal worth $17M, source said.

Fantasy Impact:

Williams was the #62 fantasy receiver (PPR) last year despite the fact that Dez Bryant essentially missed four games. Expect more of the same from Williams in 2017.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson ruled out vs. Cowboys

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says WR Jordy Nelson, who has multiple rib fractures, will be out for Sunday’s game vs. Cowboys.

Related players: Geronimo Allison, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Jeff Janis

Fantasy Impact:

Geronimo Allison will likely pick up most of his snaps. He played 58% of the snaps against the Giants, and had a quiet game, but that was with Nelson playing 23% of the snaps. In the two previous games, with Randall Cobb sidelined, Allison played 73% and 81% of the snaps, posting 4-66 (on seven targets) against the Vikings and 4-91-1 (on six targets) against the Lions.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson fractured 'at least two' ribs, status uncertain

Monday, January 9, 2017, 6:38pm - [Full Article]

Jordy Nelson's status Sunday's game against the Cowboys does not look good.

The wide out suffered at least two fractured ribs in their wild-card win over the Giants, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Rapoport adds it will take a tremendous effort for Nelson to play.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters earlier Monday that his star wide receiver has a shot to suit up for this Sunday's NFC divisional-round tilt with the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact:

If Nelson can't play, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison will pick up the slack. If Nelson does play, we wouldn't expect a full complement of snaps.

Packers have 'concern' for Jordy Nelson (ribs)

Monday, January 9, 2017, 10:32am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson was knocked out of Sunday's wild-card win against the New York Giants with a rib injury in the second quarter.

While Packers coach Mike McCarthy did not say whether Nelson broke any ribs, there was concern after the game that the injury might keep Nelson out of next Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Cowboys.

"I obviously have concern for Jordy," McCarthy said. "I don't have the information yet."

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said "it would be a huge loss for us" if Nelson were unable to play.

"But [Geronimo Allison] has been playing a lot for us and he's been playing effectively," Rodgers said. "Randall [Cobb] being back healthy -- you know I said this week in my press conference we're better with 18 [Cobb's jersey number] on the field. And he showed it tonight, made a ton of plays for us. He was excellent. And having him out there is going to help. But you know Geronimo is going to have to step up and play extended time if Jordy is going to be out."

Fantasy Impact:

If Nelson is out versus Dallas (which looks likely), Allison will pick up most of his snaps. The Jeff Janis truthers will have to hope for another injury or two.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (illness, questionable) missed practice Friday and is questionable for Week 17. McFadden could see a big workload if he’s healthy since the team is expected to limit Ezekiel Elliott against the Eagles.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (not injury related) missed practice again Friday.

Cowboys QB Mark Sanchez, RB Darren McFadden to see expanded roles in Week 17

Adam Caplan - [Full Article]

Cowboys planning on giving veteran QB Mark Sanchez majority of snaps at position Sunday at Eagles, source said.

Another report said that Darren McFadden is expected to see more work than Ezekiel Elliott.

Fantasy Impact:

Owners should steer clear of the Dallas starters this week.

Fantasy Impact:

This was fully expected all day despite the Cowboys clinching the top seed and a first round bye leaving this a meaningless game in Week 16. Dallas HC Jason Garrett said players would get a normal workload tonight against the Lions. That could perhaps change should the game get out of hand, but for now Bryant, Prescott and Elliott are solid starts.

Cowboys say players will get normal workload on MNF

Monday, December 26, 2016, 12:06pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Cowboys have nothing to gain and much to lose in their final two games of the season, but coach Jason Garrett doesn’t believe in resting his starters. And so he won’t.

Garrett reiterated today that he will give starting quarterback Dak Prescott, starting running back Ezekiel Elliott and everyone else a normal workload tonight against the Lions, even though the Cowboys have already clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

“We like the rhythm of our offense and how Dak is playing,” Garrett said, via Ed Werder of ESPN.

Fantasy Impact:

In other words, Garrett thinks the risk of Prescott getting rusty if he sits out for three weeks (the final two regular season games as well as the Cowboys’ bye week) is greater than the risk of Prescott getting hurt if he plays the next two weeks. Same appears to be the case with Elliott. This comes despite the loss of Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota to leg injuries this week in other NFL action. It's probably safe to assume the Cowboy fantasy stars will at least start with a full workload, but if the game gets out of hand either way, it's possible the backups could play more.

Cowboys QB Mark Sanchez (not injury related) missed practice Friday.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford (finger/right hand) took full practice reps again Friday. Stafford will be fine to face the Cowboys.

Friday, December 23, 2016, 5:51pm

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (back) took full practice reps again Friday. Bryant will be fine for a good matchup with the Lions, who will be without top corner Darius Slay.
