Cowboys | Darren McFadden still starter in Dallas

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 14:35:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden is still viewed as the starting running back, according to owner Jerry Jones, although Jones said newly acquired RB Alfred Morris will still have a substantive role.

Fantasy Tip: This is one of those running back committees that don't necessarily prompt you to cheer or show any positive emotion. Morris will likely be used mostly on short-yardage and goal-line carries, while McFadden should be used more in the passing game. McFadden has added value in PPR leagues and could still finish as an RB2 in PPR formats. Morris is in RB3 to RB4 territory.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden to carry load early?

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 20:47:53 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden will likely open 2016 as the starting running back and see a majority of the work on all downs, according to beat writer David Moore, but Moore added that he believes the team will also draft a back and transition them into a larger role as the year goes on.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden enjoyed a solid 2015 season once he became the lead back, and despite the injury risk, he should be viewed as a RB2 heading into next season.

Cowboys | Dallas likely to add RB in draft

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 13:20:01 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is confident the team will add a running back this offseason to work in tandem with RB Darren McFadden.

Fantasy Tip: Some are suggesting the Cowboys could even target Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott as high as No. 4 overall, but a more likely scenario has them addressing their defense and/or quarterback-in-waiting over the first two days of the draft. Either way, McFadden is highly unlikely to repeat the voluminous workload he did after supplanting Joseph Randle last season and may be no better than a flex option going forward.

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

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.
