2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Many fantasy owners and NFL commentators had left Darren McFadden for dead after a string of uninspiring years with Oakland. However after Joseph Randle was lost to injury, all DMC did was average 4.6 yards per carry on his way to 1,089 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns along with 40 receptions. McFadden’s straight ahead style worked well with the superior blocking on the Dallas line, and while he wasn’t flashy or exciting he was effective. A broken elbow suffered this offseason will put his Week 1 status in doubt, which may open the door for off-season acquisition Alfred Morris to win the backup job behind the rookie, but the coaching staff may have some loyalty to McFadden after his 2015 yeoman’s work. Whoever wins the backup job isn’t likely to see much work behind the rookie, but even the top rated prospects fail, and of course the latest off-field news could put some or all of Elliott’s season in jeopardy. McFadden or Morris has handcuff value for an owner who selects Elliott, but their value would obviously skyrocket if Elliot misses significant time.

News From The Past 90 Days
Dak, Zeke likely to play limited snaps in Week 17
Sanchez, McFadden seeing bulk of reps in practice
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 29, 6:35 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Along with Cowboys QB Mark Sanchez receiving most of the reps, expect same with RB Darren McFadden. An inexperienced LT adds to resting starters. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Cowboys have nothing to play for in Week 17, so exposing Dak Prescott or Ezekiel Elliott and probably even Dez Bryant to injury doesn't make a ton of sense. The absence of LT Tyron Smith may also be contributing to their thinking as well. The only minor surprise here may be that Dallas isn't thinking about giving Tony Romo some reps, although it is understandable the team wants him healthy if it plans on trading him this offseason.


Darren McFadden to be No.2 RB in Dallas
Alfred Morris could be inactive
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 18, 8:00 am

Dallas Cowboys
#Cowboys RB Darren McFadden is the team’s No. 2 back today, taking carries from Alfred Morris, not Zeke Elliott. Morris could be inactive. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is somewhat a puzzling move considering Morris has performed well in the backup role behind Elliott. Zeke owners should considering McFadden on the waive just in case something happens to rookie in Week 15.
