    Week three for the was not only a really good week for the real team, but a good week for your teams as well.

    Dak Prescott

    Dak Prescott was again really, really good. He totaled 23.5 fantasy points by throwing for 248 yards, rushing for one touchdown, and throwing his first career NFL touchdown. Prescott seems to get better with each and every start and for as long as is injured, he will be worth consideration in your starting lineup.

    Ezekiel Elliott

    During the week leading up to week three, many Cowboys fans were clamoring for Alfred Morris to become the starting running back, despite only accounting for seven yards on five carries.

    If only we could ask them their opinion after they saw Ezekiel Elliott in week three.

    saw 30 carries and rushed for 140 yards, catching two passes for 20 yards as well. He didn't reach the end zone for the first game in his career, but he showed he has the toughness, durability, and ability to be a lead runner in the NFL.

    Alfred Morris

    Any thoughts of taking over for Ezekiel Elliott were misguided. Alfred Morris is a good player, but Elliott is a dynamic player who will one day be great.

    Morris' best shot at scoring fantasy points for you is through the vulture role.

    What is a fantasy football vulture? A running back getting goal line touchdowns when the lead back does the work to get you down the field. For two weeks in a row, Morris gets touchdowns from inside the five yard line.

    Lance Dunbar

    gets a mention here, only because he played the vulture role as well. He had one carry, but zero targets in the .

    Dez Bryant

    Cowboys Headlines - Dez Bryant and La'el Collins to Have MRIs Following Cowboys WinDez Bryant must not have a human right leg. The way that right leg bent should not be possible, but coming back into the game after that? Straight ridiculous.

    Pretty sure I would need a leg transplant.

    In the game, Bryant saw six targets, and caught three passes for forty yards and a touchdown. Not a great day, but solid.

    isn't forcing the football to any one player, and so there may be weeks when underperforms your fantasy site's projections.

    Dez Bryant is still a must-start.

    Cole Beasley

    Fantasy Football - #DallasCowboys Week 3 Fantasy Football ReviewCole Beasley after three weeks leads the Dallas Cowboys in targets (25), receptions (20), and yards (213).

    Yes, you read that right.

    On a team with Dez Bryant and , is the leading receiver on this team after three weeks. This isn't a fluke at this point. He's on pace for 106 catches and 1,136 yards this season. Those numbers would surpass his career highs by a lot.

    He is a must-start in PPR leagues and in 12-team standard leagues.

    Terrance Williams

    Man, Terrance Williams just can't get out of his own way. He was having a really good night. Williams finished with four catches on four targets for 88 yards. That's a solid line. But that fumble was rough.

    He will have his moments, but has fallen in the pecking order of target priorities.

    Jason Witten

    Not a great day for Jason Witten, but don't write him off just yet. Don't forget, in week one Jason Witten saw 14 targets. He's going to be alright. Witten is still a low-end TE 1 in 10-team leagues. Outside of the top three, is a difficult position to predict.

    Dan Bailey

    missed a field goal…

    I hope you remember where you were when that happened, because it won't happen very often. You'll want to remember so you can tell your grandkids about it.

    Nothing to worry about. Keep starting Dan Bailey in every format.

    Dallas Defense

    This defense is playing the way they played in 2014.

    The Dallas Cowboys Defense is making plays at the right time.

    They didn't finish the with any , but they forced four fumbles and recovered two of them. It may not always be pretty, but the Dallas Cowboys are playing well enough to win.
