Cowboys | Darren McFadden leads depleted running game

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 14:00:59 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden rushed for 28 yards in his team's 27-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Full disclosure: The Cowboys rushed for 69 yards as a team. McFadden's longest run of the day was 24 yards. Take that away and all he had was six carries for four yards. You can tell the Cowboys sat Ezekiel Elliott with nothing to play for and it showed.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden misses practice Friday

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 10:50:24 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (illness) is hopeful to play Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles despite dealing with an illness.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is expected to receive the majority of the touches versus the Eagles since Dallas has nothing to play for this weekend, but his illness leaves the door open for Alfred Morris and Lance Dunbar to play a larger-than-anticipated role. It's shaping up as a situation DFS owners will want to avoid.

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden likely will receive most of the snaps at running back in Week 17 since the team likely will give RB Ezekiel Elliott limited work.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden knocks off rust

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 21:45:19 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden rushed a team-high 14 times for 49 yards in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. He was targeted once but had zero receptions.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden was allowed to knock off some rust in the second half with the team resting Ezekiel Elliott, preserving their star rookie with home-field advantage already sewn up. McFadden could see extensive playing time in Week 17 if the team elects to rest their regulars.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden activated from NFI list

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 13:43:32 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) was activated to the active roster from the Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, Dec. 13. RB Darius Jackson was subsequently released.

Fantasy Tip: This is Ezekiel Elliott's backfield and anyone playing behind him has zero to minimal fantasy value. McFadden's days of being fantasy relevant could very well be over.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden returning

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 07:55:18 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) will be moved to the 53-man roster this week, owner Jerry Jones said Monday, Dec. 12.

Fantasy Tip: With Ezekiel Elliott taking the league by storm, there isn't a big role for Run DMC. He's a stretch as a flex option in PPR leagues.

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.
