Cowboys | Darren McFadden activated

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 12:22:34 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) was activated from the Non-Football Injury list Monday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect McFadden to put much of a dent in Ezekiel Elliott's fantasy value upon his return. Elliott is having a rookie season for the ages and is a weekly start, with or without McFadden.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden on the block

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 10:00:21 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) can be had via trade "should the right offer come along", according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: The same could be said about most of the players in the league and has already been said about McFadden, who reportedly may not ever be able to fully straighten his right arm again due to this summer's infamous cell phone incident. McFadden is currently on the Non-Football Injury list and could be released in an injury settlement in the near future, as Dallas is sitting fine at running back with Ezekiel Elliott and Alfred Morris.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden unlikely to be moved

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 07:34:27 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys would need to receive a significant offer to move RB Darren McFadden before the trade deadline, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is on the non-football injury list after sustaining a fractured elbow during the offseason, so the odds of him being moved to a contender in the next few days appear to be slim. That being said, Ezekiel Elliott has had an outstanding rookie campaign and Alfred Morris makes a solid backup, so Dallas would appear to have little use for him once he's healthy. McFadden has minimal fantasy value as long as he is with the Cowboys.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden nearing return?

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 21:34:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) indicated his elbow is "feeling great" and is ready to go. With the team on Bye, McFadden won't practice this week, but he could return in the lead up to Week 8. Dallas will have 21 days from the time of his first practice to activate McFadden or place him on IR.

Fantasy Tip: With Ezekiel Elliot tearing up the NFL and Alfred Morris a steady backup it's hard to see what role McFadden will play on this team going forward. There were some previous rumblings that Run DMC could be dealt, but barring that unlikely scenario his fantasy value appears to be nil for the time being.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden a trade candidate?

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 21:37:59 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) doesn't have an obvious role whenever he returns from his broken elbow, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. He's eligible to be activated Oct. 23, in advance of the NFL's Nov. 1 trade deadline, and Archer believes McFadden might draw interest from a team in need of a back.

Fantasy Tip: It's all speculation at this point, but with Ezekiel Elliot leading the NFL in rushing and Alfred Morris as a more-than-capable reserve, Run DMC looks like a luxury. If you're in a larger league or one with an IR slot, McFadden might be a tempting stash option, at least through Nov. 2.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden's arm an issue

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 13:28:26 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (arm) said he can't straighten his right arm all the way yet, and he may not be able to fully straighten it again.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is no stranger to injuries, and he'll take a backseat to Ezekiel Elliott this year anyway even if/when he is healthy. McFadden is still draftable, but he may not be worth starting in any given week as long as Elliott is healthy and with Alfred Morris also in the mix.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden may miss first six weeks

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 12:12:35 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) is expected to start the season on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. The Cowboys received trade interest in McFadden but they intend to keep him, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like McFadden will not be able to play until around mid season, so owners probably should avoid him in their drafts. Ezekiel Elliott will receive most of the work at running back with McFadden out and should be a No. 1 running back in drafts.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden ready to return

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 09:34:16 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) said he is "definitely" ready to return to practice Thursday, Sept. 1. McFadden will miss the first six games of the season if he is not activated from the Active/Non-Football Injury list before the final roster cuts Saturday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Dallas has a crowded running back group with Ezekiel Elliott, Alfred Morris, Darius Jackson and Lance Dunbar also in the mix. Activating McFadden before Saturday could force the Cowboys to cut Jackson or Dunbar, so with McFadden also rumored to be involved in trade negotiations, his early-season fantasy value is extremely murky. At this point, it is best to downgrade him to a late-round target. His resurgence last season (4.6 yards per carry) was also likely more influenced by the Dallas offensive line than McFadden's running abilities.

Cowboys | Teams interested in Darren McFadden

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 12:19:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden has drawn trade interest from multiple teams, but the Cowboys want to hold on to the running back.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, McFadden will likely play second fiddle to Ezekiel Elliott in 2016. He was one of only seven running backs to run for at least 1,000 yards last season, but his injury history and status as a backup are too much to make him more than a deep flier.

Cowboys | Two Dallas backs in pads Monday

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 15:36:30 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RBs Darren McFadden (elbow) and Lance Dunbar (knee) were in pads on the side for their rehabilitation work Monday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Both Dunbar and McFadden would be beneficial to the Cowboys' passing game upon their return. It's not clear exactly when they will return, though, and Ezekiel Elliott remains the primary running back. Dunbar and McFadden are still worth mid- to late-round consideration, with added value in PPR leagues.
