Cowboys content with McFadden as Zeke's backup
Alfred Morris on the outside looking in

Dallas Cowboys
Activating Darren McFadden after a prolonged layoff and using him ahead of Morris shows that the Cowboys consider McFadden to be the team's No. 2 back. He fills that role heading into this season and only appears in danger of losing it if he's injured. (SportsDay)

FFToday's Take: It was noteworthy last season when McFadden was immediately thrust into the backup role ahead of Alfred Morris and it appears nothing has changed heading into 2017. McFadden is more adept in the passing game than Morris making him worth a dart throw late in drafts as an upside pick.
