The Cowboys' practice report for today was just released and Bryant was listed as a full participant after not practicing yesterday.

Fantasy Impact:

Bryant being a full-go at practice today is good news for the team and Bryant's fantasy owners. While he's not a sure-fire WR1 this week, we still have him highly ranked as our No. 18 overall WR in both standard and PPR leagues.

Cowboys OT Tyron Smith (groin) not expected to play in Week 11

Jane Slater - [Full Article]

NFL Network reporter Jane Slater tweeted that Smith will not play this week versus the Eagles.

Her tweet read: "A person with knowledge of the situation tells me Cowboys LT Tyron Smith will not play Sunday (groin). Byron Bell will start instead."

Fantasy Impact:

Smith is one of the top offensive linemen in the league and we saw what happened last week when he missed a game: the Cowboys gave up six sacks to Adrian Clayborn. Four of those sacks came against Smith's replacement, Chaz Green.

Dak Prescott is our No. 7 ranked QB for the week, but the news of Smith potentially missing another game puts a slight damper on his Week 11 prospects. Hopefully, Bell will do a better job of protecting Prescott than Green did.

Big news: #Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is withdrawing his appeal, his agents Rocky Arceneaux and Frank Salzano tell me. Elliott will serve his full 6-game suspension.

Fantasy Impact:

He will return on December 24th, a.k.a. Week 16. Owners who look good for the playoffs should hold onto him for a possible start. In the meantime, it looks like Alfred Morris and Rod Smith will split the work in the Dallas backfield.

Eagles Beat: Team could expand Jay Ajayi's workload

Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 4:12pm

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Eagles running back Jay Ajayi was impressive in his debut against the Denver Broncos, but with two weeks to prepare including a Week 10 bye, he could have an even larger role in the offense Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys.

Four days after being acquired via a trade with the Miami Dolphins prior to the Oct. 31 trade deadline, Ajayi rushed for 77 yards and a touchdown on eight carries and played a factor in a run-pass option touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery back in Week 9.

With two weeks to digest the playbook, Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich says that Ajayi's ready to handle whatever the coaching staff throws at him in Sunday's game.

Related players: LeGarrette Blount

Fantasy Impact:

The Cowboys will be without Sean Lee against the Eagles so it's shaping up to be a great matchup for Ajayi owners. OC Frank Reich said Ajayi's been able to handle everything the coaches have given him at this point in practice, so they kept adding plays to his number of plays.
