Cowboys | Darren McFadden's injury not the same

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:54:52 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden's (hamstring) hamstring injury is not the same hamstring he injured during organized team activities. Head coach Jason Garrett said he is hopeful McFadden will be back in a week.

Fantasy Tip: It's certainly not encouraging that McFadden is having issues with both of his hamstrings already, considering the season hasn't even started and considering his extensive injury history. McFadden is being drafted as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3, but he comes with high risk.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden on PUP list

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:31:55 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is expected to compete for the starting running back when he is healthy enough to practice. McFadden may not win the job but should still see solid playing time this season if he stays healthy. He could be a middle- to late-round option in leagues depending on his role.

Cowboys | Dallas still not interested in veterans

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:50:51 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys are still not interested in veteran RBs Chris Johnson and Ray Rice, following the release of RB Ryan Williams Tuesday, July 28. The Cowboys remain confident in RBs Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar.

Fantasy Tip: While Randle and McFadden are thought to have separated themselves from Dunbar, neither one has an upper hand over the other at this point. This will be one of the most closely watched position battles all preseason.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden may open camp as No. 2 RB

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 11:08:33 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) is expected to compete for the starting running back job but will enter training camp as the No. 2 back in part because he missed some offseason workouts because of an injury.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has struggled with injuries in his career, so it will be important for him to stay healthy during camp. He should have a solid role on offense even if he does not win the job. McFadden could be a middle-round option in deeper leagues if he does win the starting job.

Cowboys | Concerns with Darren McFadden?

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 19:54:21 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden has topped 155 carries just twice in his seven years in the league, and he has averaged less than 3.5 yards per carry in each of the last three seasons.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden's production should improve thanks to Dallas' dominant offensive line, but it remains to be seen if he can physically hold up while serving as a lead back. McFadden has RB1 upside, but banking on him being around all season to carry your fantasy backfield could be a recipe for disaster.

Cowboys | No lead candidate at RB in Dallas?

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:07:48 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RBs Darren McFadden, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar are still battling each other for the starting running back position, according to running backs coach Gary Brown. "I can't say who is going to be the lead dog right now, but those guys are going to compete and we're going to do what's necessary to win games," Brown said.

Fantasy Tip: Brown can say what he wants, but Randle and McFadden are probably the likely candidates to receive the most touches, with Randle having a slight edge for being named the starter. Randle should be taken as a RB3, or low-end RB2 in deeper leagues, while McFadden is more of a low-end RB3 to high-end RB4, especially taking his injury history into consideration.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden healthy, happy where he is

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 11:12:53 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden said he's excited to be with the Cowboys and feels like he's a rookie again. McFadden also said the injured hamstring that caused him to miss time this offseason is feeling great.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden will mainly be competing with Joseph Randle for the starting running back job. Lance Dunbar, Ryan Williams and Lache Seastrunk will also be in the mix. Randle is probably the safer option, considering McFadden's extensive injury history, and should be drafted in the low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 range.

Cowboys | Ryan Williams not a fit in Big D?

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 20:30:52 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams is unlikely to make the 53-man roster projected by beat writer Todd Archer. The team's running backs would be RBs Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar and FB Tyler Clutts.

Fantasy Tip: Williams could still very well make the team, as this is just one man's opinion, but the former Cardinals tailback needs to prove he can stay healthy and be effective first.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden practices

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 07:22:09 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) practiced in full Tuesday, June 16. "I'm 100% and ready to go play ball," McFadden said. "It felt great. We were just taking precautions, they didn't want me to mess it up or anything crazy. Just being out there today, it felt great. I was out there running, opening up and just trying to do what I can do."

Fantasy Tip: Joseph Randle is gaining steam and appears to be the leader in this committee. Run DMC is a risky RB3 that could heed some reward if Randle falters.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden frustrated

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:37:01 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) said he is frustrated that he is not able to participate in organized team activities but would rather sit out now than have his hamstring injury linger.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has dealt with injuries during his career but is hoping to be healthy for the start of training camp. McFadden likely will be part of a committee at running back and could see the most carries during the regular season if he is healthy. McFadden could be an option in the middle rounds of drafts this season but may not be a weekly starting option.
