Cowboys | Lance Dunbar placed on IR

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 08:35:38 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Oct. 10. The team also promoted WR Vince Mayle from the practice squad to their active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Christine Michael ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will see more playing time with Dunbar out for the season. McFadden could be a flex option for owners because he could see more carries if Joseph Randle ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is not able to keep the starting job.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar to have surgery Friday

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 09:22:36 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) is scheduled for surgery Friday, Oct. 9, and his season is over.

Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) figures to have a larger role, especially with Joseph Randle ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) may or may not have been benched last week. Christine Michael ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is worth watching, but pass on FantasyScore. Randle is a risky RB2, and McFadden might be a cheap flex worth using against the New England Patriots.

Cowboys | No plans for Dallas to add RB

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 19:43:14 -0700

Despite the loss of Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) for the season, the team does not plan on bringing in another running back, a source said Tuesday, Oct. 6. RB Christine Michael was added and will serve as the No. 3 tailback behind RBs Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden.

Fantasy Tip: Randle ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) and McFadden ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will see a majority of the reps, but Michael ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will see an increase in workload. Still, your best bet for FantasyScore is Randle.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar out for season

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 15:33:52 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) will miss the rest of the 2015 season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered in Week 4. He scheduled to undergo surgery in the near future to repair the injury. Dunbar also suffered a partially torn medial collateral ligament, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Christine Michael could all receive bigger roles with Dunbar out for the season. It is not known if Randle or McFadden will receive more carries moving forward, but both should have fantasy value. Michael is not receiving a lot of work at this point but could become more of a factor as the season goes on.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar has season-ending injury?

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 10:56:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) suffered a serious knee injury in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints, and the Cowboys fear that Dunbar tore both the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his knee. He is undergoing an MRI exam Monday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a crowded Dallas backfield, Dunbar ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) was very useful to owners in point-per-reception leagues like FantasyScore. It looks like Dunbar will have to miss considerable time, if not the rest of the year. That makes Darren McFadden ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) much more intriguing to fantasy owners moving forward. Look to pick him up immediately if he's on your league's waiver wire. Christine Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is also worth a stash in deeper leagues.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar might be out a while

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 22:04:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) will undergo further evaluation after leaving the Week 4 game against the New Orleans Saints. "It doesn't look good," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sunday, Oct. 4. Dunbar was wearing a large brace on his left leg and he was on crutches.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is likely going to miss multiple weeks with the way his injury looked on the field, and the pessimism from Jones.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar injured on kickoff

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 18:39:25 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) was helped off the field after suffering an apparent left knee injury on a kickoff return to open the second half of the Week 4 game against the New Orleans Saints. He was carted off to the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) was injured when fantasy owners hate seeing their guy playing - on kickoffs when they're not accruing fantasy points but risking injury. The injury did not look good at all, and he would be more of a loss in PPR fantasy formats.

Cowboys | Christine Michael to see some action?

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 16:21:01 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael took repetitions with the first-team offense in practice this week and is being prepared for game-day duty in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints. The Cowboys are trying to find a way to carry four running backs on their active roster including RBs Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar. Michael spend the first few weeks in Dallas learning the offense while on the scout team. Michael brings size and a physical style to the run game that the other backs on the team do not. He could serve as the hammer with the Saints expected to use plenty of eight- and nine-man fronts with QB Brandon Weeden at the helm.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys have so many mouths to feed at running back that it seems highly unlikely that Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) would come in immediately and make a huge fantasy impact against the Saints. It's not impossible, though, but he'll remain a deep sleeper on FantasyScore for the time being.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar posts 10 receptions

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 22:07:49 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar ran once for five yards in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons, but his real value in the offense was catching the ball. He had 10 receptions for 100 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a legitimate FantasyScore option, as he will see plenty of receptions as the safety valve for Brandon Weeden.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar playing big role

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 19:25:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar's 32 snaps in Week 1 were the most of any running back on the team. All but one of his of snaps came on pass plays, and he finished with a career-high eight receptions.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) doesn't need to carry the ball to be effective, and with Dez Bryant sidelined, he could see even more targets against the Eagles in Week 2 in a game that could be a high-scoring affair. He is worth a flier at FantasyScore if you are looking to save a lot of cap space.
