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.

Darren McFadden on trading block?
Crowded Dallas backfield could have Run-DMC headed elsewhere
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 9, 11:10 am

Dallas Cowboys
Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) on Twitter: "Per @toddarcher, "they'll have a hard time keeping 4 backs, no way they keep 5" ... says McFadden is a potential trade piece" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Darren McFadden is probably expendable, with Ezekiel Elliott locked into a starting workhorse role and given the presence of capable backup Alfred Morris. McFadden (elbow) was placed on the active/non-football injury list in July but expects to be ready by Week 1. Still -- he's got a lot of wear for 28 and the Cowboys have more pressing needs on defense.


Injury Zeke to miss about a week with hamstring injury
Cowboys thin at RB
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 3, 5:00 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Stephen Jones concedes rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott may miss some time with sore hamstring. Source tells me he could be out about a week. (Ed Wereder on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Cowboys will likely be cautious with a player they project to have a heavy workload this season. With Darren McFadden (elbow) still on the sidelines, Alfred Morris will be the focus of the running back position in camp until Elliott returns.
