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.

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.

Cowboys RB Zeke Elliott has completed his suspension

After serving a six-game suspension, Ezekiel Elliott due back at Cowboys’ training complex this morning.

Related players: Alfred Morris, Rod Smith

Fantasy Impact:

The team hadn't had contact with Elliott during the suspension, but he was reportedly working on losing weight outside the country for the last six weeks. Elliott should be a nice addition to fantasy lineups in Week 16 against the Seahawks, who were just lit up by the Rams in Week 15. One would think Elliott gets a nice workload, but maybe because it's his first week back, the Cowboys ease him back in with Morris and Smith still getting some touches. Either way, Elliott is shaping up to be a solid play for what is likely your fantasy finals.
