Cowboys | Dallas could use committee to replace Zeke?

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 10:04:59 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris may serve in a committee along with Darren McFadden during Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer.

Fantasy Tip: This seems unlikely given how Morris was supposedly fighting for a job less than two weeks ago, but he has shown well through two preseason games. At the very least, it appears as if he is well on his way to locking down a roster spot. Elliott owners who have already made room for McFadden may want to play it safe and try to add Morris as well, but a committee approach would likely make both players flex options at best during Dallas' grueling early schedule.

Cowboys | Dallas to use committee in backfield?

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 17:10:07 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden rushed six times for 28 yards in a 13-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 12, but Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com believes McFadden left some yards on the field and thinks the Cowboys could go with a committee approach while RB Ezekiel Elliott is serving his suspension.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden and Alfred Morris are the likely candidates to pick up the slack while Elliott is sidelined, but McFadden is still the more attractive option. He will have RB2 potential, especially in PPR formats. Morris should be owned in case McFadden struggles or is injured.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden misses charter

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 20:38:16 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden missed the team charter Saturday, July 22, and will have to take a commercial flight to meet up with the team.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden enters the season as the No. 2 back behind Ezekiel Elliott, and he should be scooped up as a late-round handcuff in case Elliott goes down.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden re-signs

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 11:25:17 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden re-signed to a one-year deal Thursday, March 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys' backfield is all about Ezekiel Elliott for at least the next 10 years, ideally. McFadden's role will be extremely limited with Elliott being given one of the biggest workloads in the NFL. McFadden is merely a late-round handicap flier at best.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden garnering interest

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 16:50:02 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden is "open to a return to the Cowboys," but he is also drawing interest from "two other teams," according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden may look to go elsewhere as an unrestricted free agent, as he proved he still has enough in the tank as recent as the 2015 season, when he registered a 1,000-yard campaign in his first year in Dallas. However, he has had difficulty staying healthy throughout his career, and at 30 years old, that issue might persist like it did this past season. McFadden is likely looking at a backup role no matter where he goes.

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 will play

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 09:33:04 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (illness) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has a decent chance to see extended playing time with Ezekiel Elliott likely to see limited snaps. Owners can consider McFadden as a flex option if they do not have other options.
