Cowboys trying to acquire RB Ball from Broncos?     -- Fri Sep 4 3:50 pm --

Rumors abound that Dallas is looking to add the elusive RB
After maintaining all offseason that they're perfectly happy with their running back triumvirate of Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar, the Dallas Cowboys are discussing a trade for Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball, according to a report from Vic Lombardi of CBS 104.3 in Denver. Ball, a former second-round pick out of Wisconsin, was the starter for the Broncos during the early part of the 2014 season, but the combination of injuries and ineffectiveness led to him losing carries to Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. He played in just five games, starting three, and carried 55 times for a total of 172 yards (3.1 per carry) and one touchdown. (CBS Sports)

FF Today's Take: If Ball gets moved from Denver to Dallas, his fantasy value will receive a massive boost. With Randle and McFadden both underwhelming throughout camp and into the preseason, Ball would likely inherit the majority of the touches that were given to DeMarco Murray last year. Stay tuned...
Cowboys' backfield still in flux     -- Mon Aug 24 3:40 pm --

Team may eventually lean on back not already on roster
Joseph Randle appears to be the starter. Lance Dunbar is the change-of-pace back with a package of plays that will be more significant than past seasons. Darren McFadden’s role will vary based on his health and Randle’s effectiveness. An argument can also be made that the Cowboys are trying to send Randle a message. This is his starting job to lose. He hasn’t done anything to lose it, but he apparently hasn’t nailed it down, either. The Cowboys may lean on a back this season who’s not currently on the roster. (Dallas Morning News)

FF Today's Take: Owner/GM Jerry Jones said before training camp that if the team makes a move at running back, it will be near the end of the preseason. That possibility is looking more like a certainty, and the lucky recipient probably has RB2 potential running behind the Cowboys' vaunted front five. At this point, fantasy owners should expect the team to add a veteran runner like Pierre Thomas or maybe even Ray Rice since the Cowboys fashion themselves as a Super Bowl contender.
Injury Joseph Randle aggravates strained oblique     -- Thu Aug 20 10:00 pm --

Unlikely to play in Sunday's preseason game
Joseph Randle suffered a setback during Thursday’s practice. The third-year running back, who has worked with the first-team throughout training camp, aggravated an oblique he strained a week ago. “We’ll go in there and get some treatment and see how it’s feeling,” Randle said. “It’s the same thing I had earlier in camp. It flared up on me again.” (Dallas Morning News)

FF Today's Take: Randle is considered Doubtful for Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers. It's also unclear if Darren McFadden (hamstring) will play. Randle's injury woes this preseason are making him a risky pick as a RB2 in redraft leagues.
Injury Cowboys fine with what they have in backfield     -- Mon Aug 17 4:15 pm --

Team appears content with trio of backs to replace Murray
The fact that the Dallas Cowboys have not added another tailback has confounded some. How can the Cowboys expect to run the ball as well as they did the previous season - with DeMarco Murray leading the NFL with 1,845 yards - without a running back like Murray? For now, the Cowboys are going with what they've got. "We've had months and months and months to evaluate these guys or the prospects of playing with them," owners/GM Jerry Jones said, "so you can't get nervous now." (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Oh Jerry. The Cowboys' all-world offensive line should be able to mask some deficiencies in the backfield, but the injuries to Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar in camp should serve as a wake-up call. Dallas has only brought in marginal talents to this point, but it would be a mistake for the team not to add at least one more back when final cuts are made. For now, the Cowboys are committed to Randle as 1A and McFadden as 1B with Dunbar contributing heavily on passing downs.
Injury Darren McFadden placed on active/PUP list     -- Thu Jul 30 6:35 pm --

Hamstring injury
The search for DeMarco Murray’s replacement will go on without Darren McFadden practicing at the start of training camp. On Thursday, he was placed on the active/physically unable to perform list with a hamstring injury. McFadden’s body has routinely betrayed him since his NFL career was launched in 2008. McFadden suffered 15 injuries in his first six seasons that caused him to miss 29 games. (Dallas Morning News)

FF Today's Take: Former McFadden owners probably aren't surprised by this development since most of the 15 injuries McFadden suffered in Oakland were to his hamstring. With many evaluators suggesting McFadden lost some of his explosiveness during his final days in Oakland, it would seem Joseph Randle's grip on the right to replace Murray is tightening. The Cowboys have reportedly been in contact with Chris Johnson in recent days, for what it is worth.
Randle heads into training camp as starting RB     -- Tue Jun 23 7:00 am --

Cowboys RB ready to have career year
Joseph Randle led most of the individual drills throughout offseason workouts and regularly worked with the first-team offense. With a month to go before training camp, taking over as the lead back behind the Cowboys’ talented offensive line appears to be Randle’s job to lose. (Dallas Morning News)

FF Today's Take: Randle's competition currently includes Darren McFadden and Ryan Williams which is part of the reason why Randle's ADP currently sits at 4.04 (RB No.20) in twelve-team leagues. Assuming he can keep his head on straight, Randle has a chance to make a big fantasy impact in his third season.
Injury McFadden back at work, in full for Tuesday's practice     -- Tue Jun 16 2:00 pm --

Hamstring injury

FF Today's Take: We'll be tracking the Cowboys running game this entire pre-season trying to get some clarity on the expected workload distribution between McFadden, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar. McFadden has been limited during OTAs, giving Randle the first shot at making a lasting impression.
Cowboys sign RB Lache Seastrunk     -- Mon Jun 8 10:35 am --

Dallas searching for answers at RB position
The Dallas Cowboys are adding another running back to their 90-man roster as they continue to search for the right mix to replace DeMarco Murray. The Cowboys are signing former Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk, who had a standout high school career at Temple. Seastrunk will compete for a roster spot against Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams. The Cowboys are expected to release undrafted rookie running back Synjyn Days out of Georgia Tech. (Dallas Morning News)

FF Today's Take: Despite the team putting on a good face, there's still some uncertainty surrounding the running back position in Dallas. Randle and McFadden are the atop the depth chart but neither inspire confidence or security at the position. Seastrunk in no lock to make the final roster
