Cowboys | Joseph Randle part of committee?

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:06:11 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle will share reps with RB Darren McFadden and RB Lance Dunbar because the Cowboys "intend to take a committee approach," according to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Fantasy Tip: With Randle unable to separate himself as the lead back, he should be considered a low-end RB2. However, he has plenty of upside if he can eventually earn a bulk of the carries.

Cowboys | None of Dallas RBs standing out

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 18:10:54 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle had seven carries for 30 yards in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, against the San Francisco 49ers, while RB Darren McFadden had three totes for just four yards. RB Lance Dunbar didn't have a run from scrimmage, and managed just two grabs for three yards. "We didn't run the ball very well," head coach Jason Garrett said. "Obviously we were trying to control the line of scrimmage and didn't do a very good job of that." The team was also playing without three starters along the offensive line, so that needs to be taken into account.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Jerry Jones and the Dallas braintrust are re-thinking their decision to let DeMarco Murray walk in the offseason. Randle appears to be the frontrunner for the starting, and all indications are he has had the best camp, but it could be a three-headed monster with a 50-30-20 sort of split until one emerges as the clear-cut bellcow. That's just an estimate and not based on any reports, but it is something to keep in mind, especially for FantasyScore players early in the season.

Cowboys | Dallas expected to have top RBs Sunday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:33:07 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RBs Joseph Randle (oblique), Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Lance Dunbar (ankle) are all expected to receive some playing time during the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, according to owner/general manager Jerry Jones.

Fantasy Tip: All three running backs have dealt with minor injuries during training camp, but they appear ready to play. Randle should see most of the work this season and could be a middle-round draft pick. McFadden should see limited work during games and could be a late-round option or a handcuff to Randle. Dunbar should serve as the team's third-down back and could have value in point-per-reception leagues.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar will play Sunday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 05:21:34 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (ankle) will play in the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, but he won't play a lot.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar is a watch list player right now until he establishes a niche in the offense.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar plagued by fumbles

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 22:59:51 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar was replaced in practice Tuesday, Aug. 18, after he fumbled. He has had trouble with fumbling during training camp and the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar is trying to push into a meaningful role, but he won't supplant Darren McFadden or Joseph Randle if he can't stay on the field.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar to take part in some drills

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:00:51 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (ankle) is expected to participate in individual and 7-on-7 drills during practice Monday, Aug. 17, but likely will sit out of the team drills.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar probably will not see regular playing time this season but could be used as a receiver out of the backfield. Dunbar should have more value in point-per-reception leagues and could be a late-round option in most leagues.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar may return to the field

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 07:17:36 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (ankle) is expected to participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar is not a factor in the competition for the starting job, but he could see some playing time on third downs in 2015. Dunbar may have more value in point-per-reception leagues but could be a late-round option in deeper leagues as depth at the position.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar rehabbing

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 16:57:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (ankle) is going through rehab in a practice jersey and shoulder pads Thursday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It is unlikely Dunbar moves higher than third on the Cowboys' running back depth chart, but he does need to prove he's still worthy of a spot in the backfield rotation.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar misses another practice

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 17:26:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (ankle) missed his fifth straight practice Monday, Aug. 10, but went through his most exhaustive rehab session yet.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar is likely to be the team's third running back behind Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden this year, injuries aside. He's mainly a pass-catching option out of the backfield on third downs, too, so he carries minimal value in point-per-reception leagues.

Cowboys | Joseph Randle has impressed

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 17:01:24 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle has impressed the team during training camp, and the starting running back job is his to lose with both RBs Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Lance Dunbar (ankle) dealing with injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Running behind arguably the best offensive line in the entire league, Randle has tons of upside as the front-runner for the starting running back job in Dallas. He has RB2 upside as an early-round fantasy pick.
