Darren McFadden Fantasy Analysis

  • Dunbar believed to have torn ACL, MCL
    The Cowboys "fear" RB Lance Dunbar tore his ACL and MCL in Sunday night's loss to the Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  Dunbar will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis.  It'd knock him out for the rest of the season and cost the Cowboys a key part of their passing game.  Dunbar tallied 24 targets in Dallas' first 3 games.  RBs Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden will likely split passing-down work in Dunbar's place.

  • Randle expected to lead in carries Week 1
    "All indications" point to RB Joseph Randle leading the Cowboys in carries this weekend, according to insider Brandon George.  Randle reportedly received the majority of the 1st-team work in practice this week.  He'll get the 1st crack against a leaky Giants defense on Sunday night.  But if he struggles early, Dallas could turn to RB Darren McFadden.  "When somebody is hot, you stay with him. I think that is fair," RBs coach Gary Brown said. "The running backs understand that. And I think the team knows that. If a guy is hot, you stay with him. If the committee thing is working well, we'll stay with that, but we won't know until the game starts. We'll see what happens."  There's plenty of upside in the Cowboys backfield this week, but the uncertain division of labor makes both Randle and McFadden high-risk fantasy plays. Full Story

  • Garrett confirms RB-by-committee
    Cowboys HC Jason Garrett essentially confirmed that the team will deploy a committee backfield, saying that "it doesn't matter" who starts at RB against the Giants on Sunday night.  "The only thing that matters is everybody getting ready to play and if their number is called up they go out there and be their best," Garrett added.  RBs Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden will share early-down work, with RB Lance Dunbar expected to play in passing situations.  (RB Christine Michael is not expected to play after joining the Cowboys last weekend.)  Exactly how the carries are divvied between Randle and McFadden will depend on how effective each guy is.  It makes this a situation better off avoided in Week 1, despite the positive matchup.

  • Cowboys backfield still unclear heading into Week 1
    The division of labor in the Cowboys backfield remains unclear heading into Sunday night's opener against the Giants.  "We won't outline anything before the game," HC Jason Garrett said. "We'll give each of those guys a chance over the course of the week to show us that they're worthy of opportunities."  It sounds like it'll be a "hot-hand" backfield.  Joseph Randle figures to get the 1st crack, making him the best Week 1 fantasy play.  But it's a situation you might want to avoid until we get more clarity.
