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 | Lance Dunbar to have receiving role?

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:36:17 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar is expected to have the biggest impact of any of the running backs in the passing game, according to Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News.

Fantasy Tip: It is still anticipated that Dunbar will see less playing time between Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and himself, but he could be used most of the three in the passing game. In point-per-reception leagues, he should be drafted as a RB5 with RB4 upside if McFadden gets hurt.

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 | Dez Bryant's agent meets with 'Boys

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 13:25:22 -0700

The agent for Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant met face-to-face with the team for the first time in nearly four months, per sources. Bryant hasn't yet signed his $12.823 million franchise tender, and he has a deadline of July 15 to agree to a long-term deal. After that date Bryant will need to play out the season under the tender and the two sides could discuss an extension after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant's side has threatened to miss games in 2015, but the Cowboys don't believe it, as it would cost Bryant $754,000 per week. Owner Jerry Jones fully expects Bryant to be in the lineup for Week 1 against the New York Giants, and fantasy owners should be drafting as though that will be the case.

Cowboys | Randy Gregory watching film

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 15:28:12 -0700

Dallas Cowboys DE Randy Gregory has been watching the rookie film of retired DL Simeon Rice in preparation for the 2015 season. "His length is probably the biggest thing I've taken notice of. He uses it very well and that's something I've really been trying to do. My long arm I think is getting better in camp and it's only going to get better the more I play, and Jason Taylor, he's real athletic, tall guy, long, kind of myself. So they're real athletic. They do a lot of good things and I'm gonna take the things that [defensive coordinator] Marinelli preaches and get off the ball. I'm trying to get off the ball as much as I can," said Gregory. The Cowboys would also like Gregory to add weight, and he's expected to arrive at training camp at 245 pounds.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant sheds positive light on opener

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 11:41:36 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was present for a Sunday Night Football photo shoot for Week 1 Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: There is buzz that Bryant could extend his holdout into Week 1, and this is a good sign that he'll be ready to go for the year. Bryant will likely slot in somewhere in the back half of the first round of fantasy drafts.

Cowboys | Joseph Randle the clear leader

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 06:54:35 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle appears to be the clear leader at running back, and it's his job to lose in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Randle will be pushed by Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar, but the talent is there to take off. He's a high-end RB3, but behind that talented offensive line, you may need to take him as a low-end RB2.

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 | Byron Jones impressing

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 18:11:16 -0700

Dallas Cowboys CB Byron Jones has shown he is more than just a great athlete during offseason activities, and owner Jerry Jones said he has "visions of sugar plums" when envisions Jones playing in nickel packages. "I don't think we could have asked for more, sitting here today, than what he's shown," Jones said. "He certainly has shown the athletic ability, which was a given, but he's shown the instincts, shown the ability to have position flex of corner as well as safety. ... He is everything as advertised."

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 07:15:08 -0700
