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.

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.
