Pros: Choice has the between-the-tackles and receiving skills to assume majority work if Cowboys starters Marion Barber III and Felix Jones were to lose time or need a rest. He was a capable fill-in last year when called upon, posting two games of 80-plus yards. Choice's career 5.3 yards-per-carry average shows he can do damage even in limited work. The Cowboys' O-line ranks among the top portion of the NFL. Dallas wants to use all three backs whenever possible.

Cons: He's the No. 3 in a three-headed monster. Sadly, that's enough to keep him down. Choice must rely on an injury or trade to assume top dog duties.

Fantasy tip: For a No. 5 or No. 6 back, you could find worse options. Though his ability to help won't depend on his own talent, this ability is the type you should speculate on for its own merit, especially for bye or injury depth.
