Two grabs against Minnesota

Brown caught both his targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Vikings.

Analysis: The Cowboys didn't need to attack downfield much with Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard accounting for two touchdowns each out of the backfield, but Brown still made an impact with a 35-yard catch in the third quarter that set up Zeke's second score of the day. Brown hasn't seen a significant role in the offense since Michael Gallup returned from a knee injury, and his snaps and targets could all but disappear down the stretch if Odell Beckham does end up landing in Dallas.

Just one catch in OT loss

Brown caught one of three targets for three yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Packers.

Analysis: After missing the Cowboys' last game before their Week 9 bye due to a foot injury, Brown saw his usual snap share in his return to action. His role as a receiver continues to dwindle, however -- after catching exactly five passes in three straight games to begin the season while Michael Gallup was out, Brown has just 11 receptions on 21 targets for 129 yards in five contests since Week 4. Barring an injury to Gallup or CeeDee Lamp, Brown's target volume isn't likely to increase significantly in Week 11 against the Vikings.

Good to go for Week 10

Brown (foot) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Green Bay, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Brown cleared up any concern about his availability for the Week 10 contest by practicing fully Friday. After missing his first game of the season in the Cowboys' Week 8 win over the Bears, the 26-year-old shouldn't face any major restrictions as he returns to the lineup following a bye week. Expect him to settle back in as Dallas' No. 3 wideout behind CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup.

Logs limited session Thursday

Brown (foot) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Prior to sitting out Week 8 due to a foot injury, Brown didn't practice at all, so his ability to string together back-to-back capped sessions following the Cowboys' Week 9 bye is a positive sign for his upcoming availability. Friday's practice report could provide a clearer picture for his odds to suit up Sunday in Green Bay, and if he ends up active he'll continue to serve as the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup.

Limited in practice

Brown (foot) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Brown and RB Ezekiel Elliott (foot) both missed their first game of the season Week 8, right before a Week 9 bye, and both returned to practice Wednesday as limited participants. While Elliott's status will be of more interest for fantasy purposes, Brown did top 50 yards five times in seven games before the foot injury, enjoying a breakout of sorts at age 26 . Jalen Tolbert filled in as the No. 3 receiver back in Week 8 when Brown was inactive, but the rookie wasn't targeted and played only 43 percent of snaps on offense (compared to 84 percent apiece for CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup).

Missing first game of season

Brown (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Brown took a questionable tag into the weekend, despite not practicing in any fashion Wednesday through Friday. The Cowboys held out hope that the receiver might demonstrate enough progress in pregame warmups to suit up Sunday, but he'll ultimately miss his first game of the season. With Brown in street clothes, rookie Jalen Tolbert could get a look in the No. 3 receiver role behind CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup.

Questionable after missed practice

Brown (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, Patrick Walker of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Analysis: Brown handled a full workload in last week's win over the Lions but then was held out of practice all this week. He thus appears truly questionable ahead of the 1:00 ET kickoff, with KaVontae Turpin and Jalen Tolbert on hand to fill in at wide receiver if Brown can't play.

Oct 28, 2022 12:59 PM EST

Sits out again Thursday

Brown (foot) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Brown has opened Week 8 prep with no activity for two days in a row, raising the prospect that he may be unavailable to the Cowboys offense Sunday against the Bears. Ultimately, his status may receive some clarity on Friday's injury report, and if he begins to trend to sitting out this weekend, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup would serve as the main wide receivers for quarterback Dak Prescott.

Oct 27, 2022 1:37 PM EST

Tending to foot issue

Brown didn't practice Wednesday due to a foot injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Brown has been a regular in the Cowboys' passing game all season, logging between 77 and 91 percent of the offensive snaps weekly and producing five occasions of 50-plus yards in seven contests. With no activity whatsoever to begin Week 8 prep, though, his status will be one to watch Thursday and Friday to get a sense of his availability (or lack thereof) for Sunday's contest against the Bears.

Co-leads team in receptions

Brown secured five of seven targets for 50 yards and lost a fumble in the Cowboys' 24-6 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: Brown tied Dalton Schultz for the team lead in receptions and checked in second in receiving yards to CeeDee Lamb, making it a solid bounce-back effort after posting a combined 2-15 line in the prior two games. As Sunday's showing indicates, Brown could be a beneficiary of more consistent production now that Dak Prescott is back under center, and he'll aim to build on his showing in a Week 8 battle against the Bears.

Oct 23, 2022 11:51 PM EST

Only one catch Sunday

Brown caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: The 26-year-old wideout very nearly had a spectacular touchdown catch in the back corner of the end zone just before halftime, but upon review it was ruled he didn't get a second foot or other body part down in bounds after securing the ball. Brown has seen his target volume dwindle the last couple games with Michael Gallup back in action, but the entire Cowboys passing game could get a boost in Week 7 if Dak Prescott (thumb) is able to return to action.

Oct 17, 2022 8:14 AM EST

One catch against Rams

Brown caught one of two targets for five yards in a Week 5 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Michael Gallup was a little more involved in his second game back from a knee injury, hauling in four of five targets to top Brown's output, but the latter was still on the field for 76 percent of the Cowboys' offensive snaps (42 of 55) compared to Gallup's 55 percent (30 snaps). The entire Dallas passing game will likely need to be a lot more involved in Week 6 against the Eagles -- Cooper Rush attempted only 16 passes against the Rams, with the defense, running game and special teams all dominating -- so even as the No. 3 option, Brown could see a big increase in volume Sunday night in Philadelphia.

Practices in full Wednesday

Brown (neck) practiced fully Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Brown exited the Cowboys' Week 4 win against the Commanders in the fourth quarter due to a neck injury, but it didn't hold him back during the first session of Week 5 prep. Assuming he avoids a game-day designation ahead of Sunday's contest at the Rams, he'll be a part of a receiving corps headed by CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup. In Gallup's season debut this past Sunday, he logged 61 percent of the snaps on offense, while Brown managed 79 percent.

Oct 5, 2022 2:00 PM EST

Should practice ahead of Week 5

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Brown should practice ahead of Week 5 after leaving Sunday's win over the Commanders due to a neck injury, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Brown caught three of six targets for 61 yards before leaving the contest with a neck issue, but McCarthy said he got a "good report" and expects Brown to be okay heading into the team's Week 5 matchup against the Rams. Michael Gallup (knee) made his season debut, but he didn't significantly impact Brown's production. Through four games, fifth-year wideout has caught 18 of 27 targets for 274 yards and one touchdown. Despite McCarthy's comments, fantasy managers should still monitor Brown's practice statuses throughout the week to make sure he's still on track to play against Los Angeles.

Hurts neck Sunday

Brown injured his neck during Sunday's 25-10 win against the Commanders, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: During the fourth quarter, Brown ran to the sideline, seemingly favoring his left arm, but he eventually was deemed questionable to return due to a neck issue. He was unable to retake the field, ending his day with three catches (on six targets) for 61 yards. Michael Gallup (knee) was back in the lineup Sunday and figures to earn more work as he gets his feet under him, which could hinder Brown's potential moving forward. First, though, Brown may have some practice limitations this week as the Cowboys prepare for next Sunday's visit to the Rams.

Oct 2, 2022 1:15 PM EST

Commands seven targets

Brown recorded five receptions on seven targets for 54 yards in Monday's 23-16 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Brown finished second on the team with seven targets, behind only CeeDee Lamb. While he was moderately productive, Brown narrowly missed a touchdown for the second consecutive game after he was tackled at the one-yard line late in the third quarter. Despite producing admirably through three weeks, Brown's involvement in the Cowboys' offense could be in jeopardy moving forward as both Michael Gallup (knee) and Dalton Schultz (knee) are nearing their returns to the field.

Sep 26, 2022 10:28 PM EST

Scores first career TD

Brown caught all five of his targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Bengals.

Analysis: The depth receiver was Cooper Rush's most reliable option on the day, and Brown not only led Dallas in receiving yards, he caught his first career NFL touchdown in the first quarter on a nine-yard strike from Rush. Michael Gallup (knee) appears close to rejoining the lineup however, and this performance may well end up being the high-water mark for Brown this season heading into a Week 3 clash with a Giants secondary that has yet to allow more than 66 receiving yards to a WR.

Sep 18, 2022 6:55 PM EST

Leading receiver in loss

Brown caught five of nine targets for 68 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: The Cowboys' offense managed only three points in a brutal performance, but Brown at least held his own as the team's No. 2 wide receiver and led Dallas in receiving yards while the Tampa Bay secondary worked to shut down CeeDee Lamb (2-29 on a team-high 11 targets). Making matters worse, Dak Prescott suffered a hand injury late in the contest that will require surgery and keep him sidelined for multiple weeks. Cooper Rush is the next man up under center, but the entire Cowboys passing game will take a step back without Prescott, and Brown could face additional competition for snaps and targets from Michael Gallup (knee) as soon as a Week 2 clash with the Bengals.

Sep 12, 2022 6:52 AM EST

Good to go

Brown (toe) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Brown is ready for the opener after missing some time this summer with a minor toe injury, and he could have a significant role with Michael Gallup (knee) expected to miss at least one game. CeeDee Lamb is the only Dallas wide receiver who can be considered a lock for significant volume, with Brown, Jalen Tolbert, Dennis Houston, Simi Fehoko and KaVontae Turpin the other options. Tolbert has generated the most fantasy interest and should get a lot of the slot snaps, but Brown could also have a regular role for the first week or two.

Sep 7, 2022 1:13 PM EST

Misses practice

Brown missed practice Thursday with a toe injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Brown sat out the Cowboys' second joint practice with the Chargers due to a toe injury, though it is not expected to be a long-term issue. Fellow wideout CeeDee Lamb (foot laceration) also missed practice, so the team is without some of its more experienced pass catchers as they prepare for their preseason contest against the Chargers on Saturday. Brown remains the favorite to open the season as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Lamb and rookie Jalen Tolbert assuming that Michael Gallup (knee) is not ready for Week 1.
