Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (knee) is active for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Green Bay Packers. What It Means: Offensive guard Jonathan Cooper, running back Alfred Morris, and quarterback Mark Sanchez are inactives for Sunday's Divisional Round matchup. We project running back Ezekiel Elliott as our top fantasy option at the position this week, with 85 rushing yards and 0.78 touchdowns on 20 carries, as well as 3 catches for 30 yards and 0.23 touchdowns.

Crunching The Numbers: Week 17

How did the Eagles wrap up the 2016 season? The Eagles capped off 2016 with a home win against the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys in a game where Dallas had nothing to play for and trotted out Mark Sanchez to play quarterback. All of that aside, it’s always satisfying to beat the Cowboys and the Eagles technically denied Dak Prescott the honor of breaking the NFL record for wins by a rookie quarterback. Carson Wentz, meanwhile, broke a record on his end for completions by a rookie quarterback (which was previously held, coincidentally enough, by Sam Bradford). So now that the cleats...

Snap Counts For The Cowboys’ Defense: 2016 Regular Season Totals

Who played, and who produced, for the Dallas Cowboys defense this week and this season? Defensive Overview For the Eagles’ game, the defense was without six starters or prominent role players who were made inactive to get healthy for the playoffs: Tyrone Crawford, DeMarcus Lawrence, Cedric Thornton, Terrell McClain, Mo Claiborne, and Justin Durant. The seventh inactive was Tyron Smith. Sean Lee suited up, but didn’t play a snap. While Dak Prescott and Tony Romo were in the game, Dallas built a 10-3 lead, but two interceptions thrown by Mark Sanchez helped Philadelphia tie the game at...

Snap Counts For The Cowboys’ Offense: 2016 Regular Season Totals

Who played, and who produced, for the Dallas Cowboys offense this week and this season? Offensive Overview There’s not much to be gleaned from the offense for the Eagles’ game. Despite the pre-game rhetoric, the Cowboys were playing mostly to protect injured guys and important starters to the extent they could. Ezekiel Elliott and Sean Lee suited up but didn’t get a snap. Dak Prescott got 15 plays. Tony Romo saw his first action of the year, but only for a single drive of seven plays (albeit for Dallas’ lone touchdown). And then Mark Sanchez came in and proceeded to help...

NFL power rankings: The Patriots are a unanimous No. 1 heading into the playoffs

The final week of the NFL regular season saw many big names sitting on the sideline, and others coming up just short of a postseason appearance. The Dallas Cowboys sat Ezekiel Elliott against the Eagles, and only gave Dak Prescott limited playing time. Tony Romo played a series and looked like his old self, but then ceded way to Mark Sanchez, who also looked like his old self.

Is Mark Sanchez’s Roster Spot In Jeopardy?

The Dallas Cowboys decided to wisely approach the last regular season game of the year like a preseason game Sunday against the division rival Philadelphia Eagles.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott, Tony Romo, and Mark Sanchez to share Week 17 snaps

All three Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks -- Dak Prescott, Tony Romo, and Mark Sanchez -- will play Sunday, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reports. What It Means: This was already expected, but it is nice to get a Sunday morning confirmation. Garafolo reports Romo will follow Prescott with Sanchez on mop-up duty. Sanchez will likely end up playing the most snaps. All three can be avoided for fantasy purposes. Each of the three quarterbacks are projected in our algorithms for 10-14 passing attempts in Week 17, reducing them to QB31 (Sanchez), QB33 (Prescott), and QB35 (Romo) for...

Cowboys' Tony Romo expected to play Week 17

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to see some playing time against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. What It Means: This matches up with reports that Dak Prescott is expected to start but not play much in what is a meaningless game for the Cowboys, who have already clinched home-field advantage through the playoffs. Romo probably won't play much, and Mark Sanchez is likely to lead Dallas quarterbacks in snaps on Sunday. None of the Cowboys' quarterbacks are viable fantasy options this week, playing less than a full game's worth of snaps against a Philadelphia...

Dak Prescott expected to see limited playing time for Dallas on Sunday

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will see some reps in Dallas' final regular season game on Sunday, though Mark Sanchez is expected to see most of the playing time, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. What It Means: The Cowboys have already clinched home-field advantage through the playoffs, so this weekend's game is a meaningless one. Not wanting to risk Prescott in a game like this, don't expect Dallas to play him for much more than one quarter. Prescott has turned in an outstanding regular season, and his 0.30 Passing Net Expected Points per dropback rank third among the 39...

Tony Romo expected to make season debut in Week 17 vs. Eagles

Tony Romo reportedly lobbied to see the field in Week 17. Dak Prescott is expected to start in the regular season finale for the Dallas Cowboys, and Mark Sanchez is likely to take the most snaps, but Tony Romo is expected to see the field too against the Philadelphia Eagles. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Todd Archer, Romo will see action for the first time in over a year and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says it required some lobbying from the team’s longtime starter.
