2014 Fantasy Football: Week 16 NFL DFS Deep Dive

Golden TateSource: Gregory Shamus/Getty Images North America The Week When No One Scored. That’s how we should forever refer to Week 15 of the 2014 NFL season. In six of the seven weeks prior to Week 15, we had at least one running back score three touchdowns. No back accomplished that last week. For the first time since Week 2, only two receivers scored multiple touchdowns. And...

Cowboys respond to challenge in win over Eagles

If you want to get technical, the Dallas Cowboys weren't facing a do-or-die situation in Philadelphia on Sunday night. But the highly anticipated rematch of the Thanksgiving Day massacre sure carried that feeling. The Cowboys brought back painful December memories as they squandered a 21-point lead to fall behind 24-21 in the third quarter. But they provided a fresh narrative by...

Cowboys’ pass rush has been the progress stopper

Dallas, TX- 19 sacks, an all-time low for a Cowboys’ defense. They’re the “almost group”, on the edge but seldom do they get home. This has been the glaring issue that has hindered them from becoming better than average. It’s often dubbed the “chicken-or-egg theory” but when studied it’s clearer than day. Without a pass rush, the entire defense will struggle to finish...

Could This Be Brandon Carr’s Last Season in Dallas?

What may $7.5 million per season buy an NFL football team? An average cornerback with a propensity for failing to intercept passes. Well, at least that may be what the Dallas Cowboys are thinking after signing Brandon Carr to such a large contract. In 2012, Carr signed a five-year deal worth $50 million. Since then, Carr has gone a full season without recording an interception. That’s...

Cowboys facing tough run to make playoffs on road

The Dallas Cowboys have one home game remaining on the schedule. For this team, that should be cause for celebration. It's rare than an 8-4 team in the thick of a playoff race would be so eager to play a couple games away from home. But the Cowboys are 5-0 on the road and 3-4 at AT&T Stadium. They've provided a few reasonable explanations for this odd occurrence, most of them...

Cowboys Season Gets Cloudy After Loss to Eagles

I usually write up my post game thoughts after the game, but I needed a day to decompress from such a lousy performance. The Cowboys we saw before the bye week were no were to be found, and things are getting cloudy now. If the playoffs started today, we would be on the out looking in yet again. At 8-4, the Cowboys are still in the hunt, but with performance like they have had the...

Fitzpatrick gets trim - and job back

Houston quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick finally shaved the bushy and overgrown beard he'd been sporting the entire season this week. And on the day he debuted his closely trimmed facial hair, he scolded reporters for not telling him how terrible his old look was.

  By the time he was wrapping up a long session with reporters, Brandon Carr had grown tired of the questions about the ridiculous catch Odell Beckham made in front of him. Asked how many questions he'd fielded about the three-fingered grab, the Dallas Cowboys' cornerback responded with a hint of impatience, "About 10." There were two more on the way — one of which was about whether...

Rookie cornerback impresses coaches, teammates

LONDON -- Undrafted free agent cornerback Tyler Patmon wasn't supposed to make the 2014 Dallas Cowboys practice squad, let alone the active roster.

Cowboys all business in 'We Dem Boyz' win

SEATTLE - The Cowboys traveled to Seattle wearing team-issued sweatsuits rather that the customary coats and ties.

But for the three hours between the decidedly business-casual? The Cowboys were all business...
