Darren McFadden Fantasy Analysis

  • More Cowboys RB-by-committee talk
    Yahoo's Charles Robinson is the latest to suggest that the Cowboys backfield will be a committee this season.  "It's not a bluff," Robinson writes. "As it stands right now, this will be a committee in the purest NFL form. The Cowboys are adamant that their elite offensive line can be the glue that elevates a collection of parts into a greater whole."  RB Joseph Randle started Dallas' 3rd preseason game and was the primary back for the first 2 series.  But RB Darren McFadden entered later with the 1st-team offense.  He ended up with 4 carries for 37 yards, while Randle mustered just 16 yards on 5 totes.  Robinson adds later in his article that the Cowboys "believe McFadden is the best of the bunch."  It's certainly possible that he ends up leading this backfield in fantasy points.  But none of these guys are likely to emerge as a workhorse.  "But when it's all in the books at the end of the year, the ideal split will likely feature a sliding scale of rushing production where Man 1 gets in the neighborhood of 850 yards, Man 2 gets 650 and Man 3 gets 350," Robinson adds.

  • McFadden starts, struggles in 2nd preseason game
    Cowboys RB Darren McFadden got the start in Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers.  He didn't do much with the opportunity, turning 3 carries into 4 yards.  He also caught 1 ball for 3 yards.  RB Joseph Randle entered on Dallas' 3rd possession and finished the night with 7 carries for 30 yards.  This backfield remains wide-open heading into the all-important 3rd preseason game.  Randle's ADP is still sitting in the 5th round, while McFadden is going in the 12th.

  • Randle bothered by oblique again
    Cowboys RB Joseph Randle exited practice on Thursday with an oblique issue.  "Same thing I had earlier. It just flared up on me again," he said afterward. "We'll get it right. We've been working real hard. We'll get it right."  Randle missed time last week, including the preseason opener, with this oblique problem.  RB Darren McFadden, meanwhile, has returned from his hamstring issues and received lots of 1st-team work.  It's unclear if either guy will play in Dallas' 2nd preseason game this weekend, but this backfield remains unsettled.

  • McFadden gets 1st-team reps
    Cowboys RB Darren McFadden got 1st-team reps in Tuesday's joint practice against the Rams.  He scored 2 TDs and received unanimously positive reviews from the Dallas media in attendance.  It's a reminder that McFadden is still  in the mix for the starting job.  We'll see if he can stay healthy long enough to make a run at it.

  • McFadden ready to practice
    Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) has been activated from the PUP list and will resume practicing.  He missed over 2 weeks of training camp and the 1st preseason game.  But RB Joseph Randle has also missed time with an injury of his own, so the starting job is still up for grabs.  We're just not betting on McFadden doing enough to win it.
