Wed, 26 Aug 2015 23:56:23 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (neck) returned to practice in full Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden expects to practice

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:39:10 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (neck, shoulder) said he expects to participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26, after being limited Tuesday, Aug. 25, because of neck and shoulder soreness. McFadden believes he will be able to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has dealt with minor injuries during training camp but appears ready to play in the next preseason game. McFadden is not expected to start this season but could see some carries during games and could be a late-round option as a possible handcuff to Joseph Randle.

Cowboys | None of Dallas RBs standing out

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 18:10:54 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle had seven carries for 30 yards in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, against the San Francisco 49ers, while RB Darren McFadden had three totes for just four yards. RB Lance Dunbar didn't have a run from scrimmage, and managed just two grabs for three yards. "We didn't run the ball very well," head coach Jason Garrett said. "Obviously we were trying to control the line of scrimmage and didn't do a very good job of that." The team was also playing without three starters along the offensive line, so that needs to be taken into account.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Jerry Jones and the Dallas braintrust are re-thinking their decision to let DeMarco Murray walk in the offseason. Randle appears to be the frontrunner for the starting, and all indications are he has had the best camp, but it could be a three-headed monster with a 50-30-20 sort of split until one emerges as the clear-cut bellcow. That's just an estimate and not based on any reports, but it is something to keep in mind, especially for FantasyScore players early in the season.

Cowboys | Quiet debut for Darren McFadden

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 20:55:40 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden had three carries for four yards and caught a pass for three yards in two series in a preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden didn't do much in his first game action for the Cowboys, but it is worth noting the offensive line was missing multiple starters. Joseph Randle appears to have the inside track to the starting gig, but McFadden should see his share of touches, as well. Take him in the middle rounds and hope he stays healthy and carves out a large role.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden to start Sunday

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 16:07:23 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden will start at running back in a preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: With Joseph Randle sitting out with an oblique injury, McFadden will have a chance to show his stuff. If McFadden shines and Randle's injury lingers, McFadden could open the year as the starter or at least earn a bigger chunk of the carries. He is a high-risk, high-reward pick, but he is worth taking a chance on in the middle rounds of drafts.

Cowboys | Dallas expected to have top RBs Sunday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:33:07 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RBs Joseph Randle (oblique), Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Lance Dunbar (ankle) are all expected to receive some playing time during the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, according to owner/general manager Jerry Jones.

Fantasy Tip: All three running backs have dealt with minor injuries during training camp, but they appear ready to play. Randle should see most of the work this season and could be a middle-round draft pick. McFadden should see limited work during games and could be a late-round option or a handcuff to Randle. Dunbar should serve as the team's third-down back and could have value in point-per-reception leagues.

Cowboys | Dallas to use running-back-by-committee?

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 16:31:29 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden hinted that the Cowboys will use a running-back-by-committee approach this season, mainly between he and RB Joseph Randle. "You know the competitor in me definitely wants to be the No. 1 guy that goes out there. But at the same time, it's like, man, you know we're going to split carries. So whoever goes out there or goes out there second -- I just know whenever I do get a chance to get the ball in my hands, I'm going to go out there and go 110%," McFadden said.

Fantasy Tip: Dallas' backfield is a muddled picture, but Randle is expected to see first crack at the majority role. However, he will yield carries to McFadden if he can stay healthy, so owning both in your fantasy league would be idea. The good news is that both runners are working behind an elite offensive line.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden taking 1st-team reps

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 18:23:08 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden was taking first-team repetitions Monday, Aug. 17. McFadden dominated one-on-one pass drills, impressing owner/general manager Jerry Jones, "McFadden hit that thing for the first time up in there and showed some real stuff, and he sure showed some real burst in a couple of drills where they weren't just full tackling," Jones raved Tuesday morning. "Boy, if we can keep him out there, he'll tear their you know what up."

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is making excellent use of his time while Joseph Randle remains sidelined by an oblique strain. The more reps McFadden can get in at this point, the more likely he is to begin the season as the Cowboys' starter.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden barely used

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 18:29:10 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden got two team repetitions Monday, Aug. 17, with both plays being pass plays. McFadden looked good in pass protection.

Fantasy Tip: In the Cowboys' tight running back competition, the small things will matter. The most well-rounded back could become the starter.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden may be limited

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 12:45:32 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) is expected to participate in individual and 7-on-7 drills during practice Monday, Aug. 17, but likely will skip the team drills.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is working his way back from his hamstring injury and likely will be eased back into practice. McFadden probably will not start this season but could see some carries as a backup. Owners should consider McFadden a late-round option in drafts as a possible handcuff to Joseph Randle.
