Cowboys | Darren McFadden released

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 09:24:58 -0800

Updating a previous report, the Dallas Cowboys released RB Darren McFadden Sunday, Nov. 26. In a corresponding move, RB Trey Williams was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Fantasy Tip: The 30-year-old McFadden was unable to get any playing time in Dallas even with RB Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension and will now look to latch on with another team. Outside of being a speculative stash in deeper PPR leagues, he has no fantasy value.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden likely to be waived

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 06:35:57 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys are expected to waive RB Darren McFadden, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: With Alfred Morris and Rod Smith splitting carries in the backfield during Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, it was evident McFadden didn't have much of a future with Dallas. He has only been active for one game this season and had just one carry in that appearance. It's possible that McFadden could latch on with a team in the playoff hunt but he has minimal fantasy value at this point.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden not utilized

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 21:04:46 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden lost two yards on his only carry in a 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden looks like the odd man out in the backfield as Alfred Morris handled most of the early-down work and Rod Smith was involved in the passing game. Hang on to him for another week in case Dallas decides to shake things up, but it doesn't look like McFadden will have a role while Ezekiel Elliott is suspended.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris expected to start

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 12:55:44 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris is expected to be the starting running back against Atlanta Falcons in Week 10 because of RB Ezekiel Elliott's suspension. RB Rod Smith would serve as the No. 2 running back and be a significant part of the game plan. RB Darren McFadden could be active as the No. 3 running back.

Fantasy Tip: Morris has posted solid numbers in his limited playing time this week and should receive most of the carries in the running game. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in all leagues. Smith could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he does receive a decent amount of touches.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden the No. 3 back

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 18:28:19 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden will be the No. 3 running back behind RB Alfred Morris and RB Rod Smith against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9, but all three backs are expected to receive touches.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is worth a speculative stash at this point, especially in PPR formats, but Morris is the only Dallas back worth starting in Week 9, and he is only a flex candidate.
