Cowboys Beat: Darren McFadden's workload 'could be reduced' due to wet conditions

Dallas News - [Full Article]

Although Darren McFadden has received the majority of the team's carries the last four games, his workload could be reduced in what will likely be wet conditions at Miami's Sun Life Stadium.

The running back rotation behind McFadden will likely be Robert Turbin, who was signed Wednesday, and then Rod Smith.

Fantasy Impact:

If McFadden is healthy enough to play, we expect that he'll get the vast majority of the touches considering that the apparent RB2 (Turbin, not Smith) just recently joined the team.

Cowboys are signing RB Robert Turbin, recently cut by Browns.

Browns cut Robert Turbin

The Browns waived running back Robert Turbin this morning and elevated offensive lineman Darrian Miller from the practice squad.

Turbin was claimed off waivers from Seattle in Week 1 despite having a high ankle sprain. The Browns cut receiver Terrelle Pryor, a former Ohio State quarterback, to clear room for Turbin.

But Turbin’s tenure was short. He saw his first action in Week 6 and he played three games with 18 carries for 60 yards. He dropped two fumbles Nov. 1 against Arizona, then didn’t play Thursday night against Cincinnati because of a coach’s decision.

Fantasy Impact:

The team recently cut Terrance West, so it now leaves them with Duke Johnson and Isaiah Crowell. Johnson has been excelling in the passing game making him a solid PPR play, but hasn't really been all that much of a factor running the ball. Last week, Crowell carried 10 times for 38 yards. The Browns will likely have to make a move for another back.

Browns don't see RB competition as problem; fantasy owners do

The long-anticipated Browns debut of Robert Turbin came Sunday against the Broncos. He performed admirably, carrying the ball 10 times for 27 yards against a tough Denver defense.

So, now what?

Turbin had 10 carries, Duke Johnson Jr. had nine and Isaiah Crowell led the way with 11. That’s good for an average of 10 apiece.

Is that what Browns fans should expect Sunday against the Rams and moving forward into the second half of the season? Not exactly.

“People look at that (competition) as a problem, but we see it as a good problem to have,” Browns coach Mike Pettine said. “I don’t think we’re going to go into a game and say, ‘Hey, we want to get X number of touches to each of these guys.’ Some of that will be a function of what the defense is giving us, how they want to play us, and then at the same time, Flip (offensive coordinator John DeFilippo) will have it coordinated where certain plays will be for certain backs, and he’ll have those personnel groupings tagged accordingly.”

Fantasy Impact:

The story said some of the Browns’ best rushing performances last season came when three different players received five or more carries. That wasn’t much of an option this year until Turbin returned, as Shaun Draughn, who was released this week, was primarily used on special teams. This is likely a fantasy situation to avoid, perhaps other than Duke Johnson in PPR leagues, who should continue to be a big threat in the passing game.
