There was a report that GB wanted to limit Eddie Lacy's workload to keep him fresh. Result? 33 touches, 112 yards, TD.

Snaps/Targets: Jarrett Boykin 66/6, Myles White 58/7 - I believe White goes to bench when James Jones returns, however.

Adrian Peterson touches... 1st four games 25.8, last three: 14.7

Joseph Randle led DAL RBs in touches (17) and snaps (33) with DeMarco Murray out.

Terrance Williams 2-64 (10) saw more targets than Dez Bryant 3-72 (6) which is maybe why Dez was flipping out on the sideline.

Since Week 4, Terrance Williams is fantasy football's #6 WR with 21-384-4 in five games.
