Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Set for larger receiving workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys running backs coach Gary Brown expects Elliott to catch more passes this season, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Elliott easily led the league in carries (322) and rushing yards (1,631) as a rookie, but he only ranked 31st among running backs in targets (40), despite finishing third in yards per target (9.1) among the 50 backs that drew more than 25 looks. While he often stayed on the field for passing downs, the Cowboys simply didn't rely on their backfield much for pass-catching duties, with running backs accounting for only 79 of the team's 483 targets (16.4 percent). That share likely will rise closer to the league average of 18-20 percent, and with Lance Dunbar no longer on the roster, Elliott unquestionably is the Cowboys' best option for passing downs. While still unlikely to match the kind of receiving workloads David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell handle, Elliott should push to finish among the top 10 at his position in both carries and targets.

Cowboys' Orlando Scandrick: Returning to form
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandrick is returning to form this offseason and is prepared to compete for a starting role, Jon Machota of Sports Day reports. "My time is now, and I ain't looking over my shoulder, wondering what's going to happen," Scandrick said. "I'm just going out every day and trying to get better, trying to get back to where I was. I felt like I was an ascending player when I tore my ACL and I'm going to get back to that."

Scandrick dealt with a plethora of injuries last season, sidelining him after two consecutive career years. The Cowboys made a point of adding young talent to their secondary, drafting Chidobe Awuzie in the second round of April's draft and Jourdan Lewis in the third, leaving some to wonder if Scandrick's time would be up in Dallas. However, the veteran has been playing outside corner and nickelback with the first team defense through OTAs and minicamp. Look for more updates on the position battle to come throughout training camp.

Cowboys' Cole Beasley: Hamstring injury continues to linger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley continues to deal with a hamstring issue that has bothered him since Week 10 of the 2016 season, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports. "I wouldn't say it's soreness. It tightens up when I overextend," Beasley said Wednesday. "As far as running routes, it doesn't bother me at all. It's really after I catch the ball and try to open up is where I feel it. It doesn't hurt. There is nothing surgery can do for it. They say they've had guys with an injury like this before and it's nagged them for a long time and it just went away. So it's kind of like a waiting game. If it doesn't go away, I can play through it."

Assuming his contention is correct, Beasley is still feeling the after-effects more than seven months removed from the initial hamstring injury. Prior to the event, he gathered in 43 of 52 passes for 499 yards and four touchdowns in eight games. His efficiency tailed off over the next nine contests, though, as he recorded 36 catches (on 52 targets) for 379 yards and just one touchdown. Although Beasley doesn't seem too worried about the issue lingering into the season, his output could very well take a hit this fall after he led the Cowboys in receptions, targets and receiving yards in 2016.

Cowboys' Lance Lenoir: Signs with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lenoir signed with Dallas on Tuesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lenoir is disadvantaged a bit being that he's an undrafted rookie who signed after all rookie camps and several offseason practices are completed, but he still has an outside shot at making the Cowboys' roster or practice squad. The 6-foot, 210 pound Western Illinois product finished his college career with 273 catches for 3,796 yards and 26 touchdowns.
