Cowboys | Darren McFadden on track for opener

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:05:21 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) received positive results from his bone scan, and he's on track for the season opener.

Fantasy Tip: The injury really couldn't have come at a worse time, and the buzz now revolves around Ezekiel Elliott. Some pundits have Elliott in line for 300-plus carries, which doesn't leave a lot of scraps for McFadden. He'll be active in the passing game, though, and he's still worth taking as an RB4 in PPR leagues.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden eyeing preseason return

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:29:32 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) will have a scan on his broken elbow Monday, July 25, and he said hopes to return during the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden should be owned in all formats in case something happens to Ezekiel Elliott on the field or if Elliott's recent off-field issues turn out to have long-term ramifications. However, McFadden is a merely a RB4 candidate if Elliott is available.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden story revised

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:38:32 -0700

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) said he was injured in a slightly different way than the team, who said McFadden was injured trying to save his cellphone, released to the public. McFadden said his phone was in his hand, but he slipped down and fell on the elbow. He said he still has a few weeks in a brace after June 14 surgery, and it's possible he could miss the season opener.

Fantasy Tip: Ezekiel Elliott has a golden opportunity in training camp and only has Alfred Morris to stave off. Morris has very meager RB4 or RB5 value in fantasy. Elliott has drawn rave reviews, but taking him as anything more than an RB2 is a risk. McFadden seems to have the upper hand over Morris because he's a better receiver than the former Redskin, but McFadden is an RB4 in fantasy.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden hurt in home accident

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:33:20 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) required surgery on a broken elbow after he was injured in an accident at home. McFadden is expected to miss two months and be ready by the end of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: The stage appears to be set for Ezekiel Elliott to take the bull by the horns. Alfred Morris should return into the picture as well. McFadden trumps Morris because he's a better receiver, but one has to wonder the value of having all three on the same team. Elliott is a high-end RB3 that will probably start sneaking into RB2 territory. McFadden, if he can return in time to have something resembling a training camp, is an RB4. Morris' value is tricky with the other two in the backfield, but he's an RB5 flyer.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden undergoes surgery

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:20:29 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) underwent surgery on his elbow Tuesday, June 14, and is expected back in time for the season opener, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

Fantasy Tip: Missing training camp could be bad for his usage. It gives rookie Ezekiel Elliott an entire camp to lead the way. He has a ton of hype already, and if he has a good camp, McFadden could be left with table scraps. The perfect-world scenario is a 50-50 split between the two, but McFadden may fall into the RB4 mix if he misses a big portion of camp.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden embracing role

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 18:33:03 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden called RB Ezekiel Elliott an "awesome runner" and said he is going to show him the ropes while still competing with Elliott for touches.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is saying all the right things, but the Dallas backfield is going to belong to Elliott. McFadden could still be a viable RB3 in PPR formats, but his upside is severely capped with Elliott in town.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden not at practice

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 12:21:36 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (personal) was not present for organized team activities Wednesday, June 1, for personal reasons. RB Ezekiel Elliott ran with the first team in McFadden's absence, while RB Alfred Morris took snaps with the second team.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Elliott doesn't usually play with the first team, he's the running back to draft in Dallas. Elliott is the salt of the Cowboys' running back spices, while McFadden is the underwhelmingly flavored pepper and Morris is the cumin. Elliott has mid-range RB1 upside if he can stay healthy and fend off McFadden and Morris.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden could be traded

Tue, 31 May 2016 16:35:54 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden may end up as trade bait before the regular season, in the opinion of ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Trading McFadden would make sense for Dallas, who would still have Ezekiel Elliott and Alfred Morris to carry the load in the backfield. McFadden's fantasy value took a huge hit when Elliott was drafted; he should no longer be viewed as more than a low-end RB4 to high-end RB5, with extra value in PPR leagues.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris not available

Thu, 26 May 2016 19:09:27 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris and RB Darren McFadden are not available for trade, executive vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: After selecting Ezekiel Elliott with the No. 4 pick in the NFL draft, the fantasy value of both McFadden and Morris takes a major hit. McFadden is worth grabbing later in drafts, but it would take an injury to Elliott for McFadden to become a starting-caliber back.

Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott must earn starting job

Thu, 26 May 2016 10:20:54 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott must compete to earn a starting role this year, according to running backs coach Gary Brown. Elliott was drafted fourth overall by the Cowboys and will compete with RBs Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris. "It's a lot faster pace," Elliott said. "The game moves so much faster. Yesterday, I'm not going to lie, I was a little bit shell-shocked. But today I came out. I was a little bit more prepared and was more ready mentally so it was a little bit easier for me."

Fantasy Tip: This is probably just coach speak. Dallas wouldn't have used a top-five pick on a running back if they weren't prepared to start him immediately. Elliott was the top back in the draft by a long shot, and he should contribute nicely for fantasy owners immediately behind an elite offensive line. Take Elliott as an RB2 with upside for more in 2016.
