Christine Michael released, Cowboys search for RB2 - [Full Article]

The Cowboys parted ways with Christine Michael waived Tuesday, rookie running backs Rod Smith and Trey Williams moved up the depth chart and one step closer to carries.

Both players joined the roster in recent weeks – Smith was claimed off waivers from the Seahawks during the bye and Williams was signed off the Redskins’ practice squad Nov. 4 – but neither have touched the ball on offense yet. Only Smith has an NFL regular-season carry (two for five yards with Seattle).

Fantasy Impact: 

Williams' skills are more versatile as a runner, receiver and returner, and the story mentioned him with Lance Dunbar, the team's all-purpose back that was lost for the year. This is an interesting situation to follow because these guys are a McFadden injury away from getting significant time in an offense that likely sees the return of QB Tony Romo this week.
