Last week, reports surfaced that suggested Michael would emerge as a prominent figure following the bye, but recent chatter coming out of Dallas indicates he might not see as much action as many figured.
“The Cowboys have said he will be in the mix more. But all he needs to do to be involved ‘more’ is get two carries in a game,” ESPN's Todd Archer said. He also says Joseph Randle would remain the lead back.
Perhaps even more damning are comments from Michael himself.
“I’m just as clueless as you are,” the running back told reporters Thursday, via the Dallas Morning News. “Those guys did say I’m going to get a little bit more carries, but we’ll see on Sunday.”
Fantasy football owners expecting a big game from Michael probably should 'tap the breaks' according to the story. It looks like he may be somewhat involved this week but indications still point to Randle as the team's lead back, making Randle the best fantasy option among Michael and Darren McFadden.
