Cowboys | Darren McFadden has bounce-back year

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 13:01:36 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden had his best season since 2010, totaling 1,089 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has put together back-to-back healthy seasons, playing in all 16 games the last two years. He took advantage of his opportunity after Joseph Randle derailed. Whether or not McFadden is the boy crying wolf remains to be seen, but he should be considered a RB2 going into next season's fantasy drafts.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden reaches 1,000 yards

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 17:49:57 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden had 12 carries for 92 yards and five catches for 53 yards in a 34-23 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 17, reaching 1,000 yards rushing for the second time in his career.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden performed well when he was finally made the starter, and if he enters next year in the same role, he should be a solid RB2 in all formats.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden plays well in Week 16

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 14:49:20 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden rushed for 99 yards on 19 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has been a solid addition for the Cowboys this season and should be a focal point on offense in Week 17. He has rushed for at least 99 yards in four of his last six games and could be a solid starting option against the Redskins.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden tops 100 yards

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 19:17:42 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden had nine carries for 111 yards in a 28-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys had to abandon the run after falling behind, slowing what could have been an even bigger performance. McFadden has had several big games this year, but don't expect one next week against a solid New York Jets defense.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden finishes up

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 22:44:31 -0800

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (head) left the Week 13 game against the Washington Redskins Monday, Dec. 7, to be evaluated for concussion. He was able to return after a brief absence.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden finished with 53 yards on 14 carries and he had a touchdown in the fourth quarter. He remains a decent RB2 or flex FantasyScore option heading into Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden having head checked

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 19:15:14 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (head) left the Week 13 game against the Washington Redskins in the third quarter. He suffered an apparent head injury on a carry which resulted in a fumble, and he was being checked on the sidelines before heading off to the locker room for further evaluation.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden leads the team with 35 rushing yards on nine carries while hauling in one reception for six yards. If he cannot continue it would be Robert Turbin and Rod Smith likely picking up the slack.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden does not do much

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 17:46:10 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden rushed for 11 yards on 10 carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 12. He also caught four passes for 45 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden was facing a tough Panthers defense, so there was a chance he was going to struggle. McFadden was involved in the passing game, which helps his fantasy value. He probably will receive a bigger role if Tony Romo is sidelined and could be a solid option next week against the Washington Redskins.

Cowboys | Three Cowboys expected to play

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 11:47:50 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot, knee), RB Darren McFadden (groin) and QB Tony Romo (back, shoulder) are all probable for Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 26, and they all practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: None of this trio should really excite you on FantasyScore this week going up against the Panthers. Bryant ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) is a tough sell to return profit going against shutdown corner Josh Norman. Romo ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) has a tall task against a nasty defense in his second game back. And DMC ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) should have a heavy workload but might not be able to break through against a stout defensive front.

Cowboys | Three Cowboys limited Tuesday

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 15:02:38 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back, shoulder), WR Dez Bryant (foot, knee) and RB Darren McFadden (groin) were limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys' offense as a whole faces a tough task in succeeding against the Carolina Panthers this week. Romo ($8,100, 16.2% of cap), McFadden ($6,400, 12.8%) and Bryant ($8,300, 16.6%) are each still worth starting, but expectations should be tempered.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden emerges as workhorse

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 22:12:12 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden had 29 carries in the Week 11 win against the Miami Dolphins, and he is stepping up as the team's workhorse back. Over the past five games he has 122 carries for 494 yards. "I feel great," McFadden said Monday, Nov. 23. "Just taking care of my body. Get a little bit of rest the next couple days."

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has re-emerged as a solid RB2 or flex play in FantasyScore and most other fantasy formats, but keep in mind he has had plenty of injuries in the past. Until he does this workhorse deal for a couple of seasons in a row, there will always be worry. He has played all 16 games only once in his seven NFL seasons.
