  • Rico Gathers Suffers a Concussion in Practice

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers was injured in Tuesday's practice and has been placed in the league's concussion protocol. Gathers has put up one of the most eye-popping preseasons in recent memory, posting seven catches for 106 yards and two touchdowns in two games. He's almost certainly out for the Cowboys' third preseason game, and may have to sit longer than that.

  • Rico Gathers Confident in His Preseason Showing

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers is confident in his preseason play and says he is not surprised by his own success. Gathers has caught seven passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns while playing 90 snaps on offense through two games. Gathers is an imposing six-and-a-half feet tall and weighs 275 pounds. He's easily been creating mismatches wherever he goes on the field. Dripping with upside, Gathers won't show much this season unless starter Jason Witten gets injured, but he's a guy to grab in dynasty leagues and not a bad idea for Witten owners despite the rarity of a tight end handcuff.

  • Rico Gathers Shows Up Again on Saturday

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers played well again on Saturday, leading the Cowboys in receiving. He caught the most passes (four) and generated the most yards (47). He also scored a touchdown for the second game in a row. Dripping with upside, Gathers likely won't make too much noise in redraft leagues this year due to the presence of Jason Witten. In dynasty leagues though, he's becoming more and more interesting.
