Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Fades down stretch in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods wrapped up the 2019 campaign with a career-high 77 tackles (52 solo), two interceptions on five passes defended, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery in 15 games.

The third-year safety started the season off with a bang, racking up a season-high 11 tackles in Week 1 against the Giants, but he didn't make much impact down the stretch when the Cowboys needed him the most -- Woods topped three tackles only once in the final seven games. The 24-year-old has solidified one safety spot in the Cowboys' secondary, but he'll need to show more consistency in 2020 if he's going to emerge as an IDP asset.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Productive in MNF win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods recorded four tackles (three solo) one pass defensed, one interception and a forced fumble in Monday's 37-18 win over the Giants.

Woods picked off the quarterback for a second consecutive game and he also added his second forced fumble of the season, while also bringing his season total to 44 tackles (32 solo).

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Snags first pick of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods recorded one tackle and an interception in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

The fourth-quarter pick was his first of the season and the fourth of his career. Woods heads into the Cowboys' bye with 40 tackles through six games, and his contributions have put him on the fantasy radar in IDP formats.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Big tackling day in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods recorded nine tackles (five solo) during Sundays' 24-22 loss to the Jets.

Woods notched his second-highest tackling total of the season during the Week 6 loss. The 24-year-old has been a solid weekly option in IDP formats through six contests, and he'll look to log another strong performance against the Eagles on Sunday.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Practices in full Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is no longer listed on the team's injury report, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

As expected, after logging a full practice Friday, Woods will be a full go for Sunday's primetime matchup in New Orleans. Woods said he doesn't anticipate having any limitations come Sunday night.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: On track to play vs. Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods said he expected to play without limitations in Sunday's game against the Saints, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Woods practiced in a limited fashion this week, but it doesn't look like those restrictions are going to carry over into Sunday night. Now, after originally believing he was on track to miss at least one month, it doesn't appears as though Woods' absence will extend beyond the one week.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Works in limited fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

After Woods was initially thought to be facing a four- to six-week absence, his injury was downplayed, and the team expects him to be ready for Sunday's game versus the Saints. Woods' participation in Wednesday's practice certainly supports that notion. If he can suit up, he'll be tasked with slowing down Alvin Kamara, who is coming off a 161-yard performance against the Seahawks.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Receives good news
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vice President Stephen Jones said Sunday Woods (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against Miami but would be "very surprised" if he's not back for Week 4, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Woods was originally expected to miss four to six weeks following last week's game but, as evidenced by this news, seems to be ahead of schedule. The 24-year-old has recorded 17 tackles (13 solo) through the first two games of 2019 and is expected to be replaced by Darian Thompson or Kavon Frazier for Sunday's game at least. Expect Woods' status to be closely monitored next week, with his practice availability shedding light on the possibility to play Week 4.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Will miss 4-to-6 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods is expected to miss anywhere from four to six weeks with a high ankle sprain, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

This comes as a big blow to the Cowboys' secondary, as Woods was solid through two games this season, recording 17 total tackles (13 solo) and a forced fumble over 128 defensive snaps. The 24-year-old will at least miss Dallas' games against the Dolphins, Saints, Packers and Jets with this injury. In Woods' absence, either Darian Thompson or Kavon Frazier will start opposite Jeff Heath.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Leads team in tackles in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods recorded a team-leading 11 tackles, including nine solo stops, and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Big things were expected from Woods this season, and the third-year safety didn't disappoint in Week 1. The 11 tackles were a career high -- he didn't have more than nine in any game last year, his first as a starter -- and while his opportunities came largely as a result of Giants tight end Evan Engram working as Eli Manning's top target, Woods still looked solid in both pass coverage and run support. He's now put himself on the IDP radar with this performance.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Impressing in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods has been one of the standout players of training camp so far, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Heading into his third NFL season, Woods is expected to start at safety alongside Jeff Heath, and a big step forward for the 24-year-old would provide a big boost to the Cowboys' defense. Woods only compiled 56 tackles, two INTs and nine passes defended in 14 games last year, however, so he's unlikely to make an IDP impact even if he does take his game to another level.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Absent from practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods did not participate in Saturday's practice due to the birth of his daughter, Jane Slate of the NFL Network reports.

Woods is expected to return Sunday after tending to this brief personal matter, though fellow safeties Kavon Frazier and Jameill Showers may still be impacted by knee injuries.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Takes step forward in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods finished the regular season with a career-high 56 tackles and two interceptions on nine passes defended.

After missing the first two games of the season due to a hamstring injury, the second-year safety settled into a starting role next to Jeff Heath and mostly held his own. The position is one the Cowboys could be looking to upgrade in the offseason, so Woods isn't guaranteed to return as a starter in 2019, but he's shown he can be a solid cog in an up-and-coming young defense.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Grabs second interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods had four tackles (three solo) and an interception in Thursday's win over the Redskins.

Woods had an eventful game Thursday as he had two passes defensed in addition to the interception. The 23-year-old has started nine games for the Cowboys in his sophomore season and has 36 tackles (26 solo) and two interceptions.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Leads team in tackles Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods recorded nine tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 22-19 win over the Falcons.

Woods logged his highest single-game tackle total of the season during Sunday's win over Atlanta. The second-year safety played a key role in holding the Matt Ryan-led air attack to only 19 points, and he'll look to record another strong showing during Thursday's divisional matchup against the Redskins.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Woods suited up for his first game of the season in Week 3 and appears on track to play against the Lions on Sunday. The second-year player will serve as Dallas' starting free safety, barring any setbacks.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game at Seattle, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

He'll be playing his first game of the year. The Louisiana Tech product made 42 tackles and defensed three passes with one interception while playing all 16 games his rookie season.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Likely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The second-year pro is looking to make his season debut after missing most of preseason and the first two games with a hamstring issue. If Woods suits up, he'll need to be ready for plenty of work against the pass, as Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has thrown the ball 69 times over two games and recorded three interceptions.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Slapped with questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods (hamstring) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Woods participated in practice throughout the week without any known setbacks, and he seems to have a legitimate chance of making his 2018 debut this weekend. However, if the Cowboys choose to err on the side of caution, look for Kavon Frazier and Jeff Heath to continue to man the two starting spots at safety.

Cowboys' Xavier Woods: Could return in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods (hamstring) could play against the Lions on Sunday, Jon Machota of The Dallas News reports.

Woods has missed the first two weeks of the regular season due to a hamstring injury but has a chance to suit up in Week 3. The 32-year-old has reportedly been progressing well in his recovery. If Woods is able to retake the field, Tyree Robinson will resume his backup role.
