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

Saturday, November 21, 2015, 8:05am

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.

Scouting Report

Week 15 vs New York Jets
Robert Turbin propelled himself into the fantasy picture with seven carries including a touchdown against Green Bay last week. The running back situation in Dallas has been volatile all season, but it appears Turbin will now be the one who backs up Darren McFadden and gets meaningful carries for the Cowboys. Although he has some fantasy relevance, it is not enough right now to get him in your starting lineup. Keep Turbin on the bench for Week 15.
