RB Ryan Williams, the former Arizona Cardinals second-round pick who signed with the Cowboys this summer, raised eyebrows with his impressive running late in Saturday's preseason game. But Joseph Randle, who the Cowboys gave a third-round grade coming out of Oklahoma State, has performed better on the whole since camp started and has consistently been ahead of Williams on the depth chart.
"Joe Randle right now is really playing outstanding," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 FM The Fan. "That's not an exaggeration."
Randle, who averaged only 3.0 yards per carry last season, has gained 91 yards on 20 carries in two preseason games, getting a lot of his work against the San Diego Chargers' starters. He looks more decisive and more elusive than he did last season.
The two are competing for the RB3 spot behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar. Who ever wins the job would likely see a jump in snaps if something happens to Murray.

Joseph Randle has the inside track for the No. 3 job and would likely take over the every-down role if something were to happen to Murray. He will be pushed by Ryan Williams, who is a former second-round pick. He was unable to stay healthy in his time with the Arizona Cardinals but he has natural ability that could push him by Randle, a fifth-round pick last year.
Murray's handcuff could be an important roster spot on your fantasy team as he often struggles to stay healthy for a full season. It looks like Randle has the inside track but Williams could be an interesting name to watch in camp.
Williams, the 38th overall pick of the 2011 NFL draft, was cut by the Arizona Cardinals this week. He played in just five games over three seasons due to injuries.
He missed the 2011 season after rupturing the patella tendon in his right knee. In 2012, he played in five games before a shoulder injury ended his season.
OC Scott Linehan reportedly loves Lance Dunbar, so Williams may not have a shot at the RB2 job in 2014.

RB Andre Ellington is expected to get the start with Rashard Mendenhall out.
Both Marshawn Lynch and Larry Fitzgerald are IN for Thursday Night Football. Lynch is a strong RB1 start, while Fitzgerald is a fringe WR2 at best given the tough matchup and hamstring injury. Still, he played through the injury in Week 6 and had a big day.
WR Larry Fitzgerald is officially active. He is a risky fantasy play with hamstring issues.

Larry Fitzgerald is active in a good matchup with the Lions. Reports have Fitzgerald being somewhere around 80% with a hamstring. Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts get a slight bump in the rankings as a result.
