2019 Fantasy Outlook
Woods claimed a starting safety spot in his second NFL season, recording 56 tackles and two INTs in 14 games last year, and with the Cowboys having failed to bring in any real competition for him, the Louisiana Tech product will get a chance to improve on those numbers in 2019. Read Past Outlooks

Will miss 4-to-6 weeks

Ankle
September 17, 2019
Woods is expected to miss anywhere from four to six weeks with a high ankle sprain, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
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.
