Cowboys Beat: Christine Michael could get more work

ESPN - [Full Article]

Cowboys RB Christine Michael will see a larger role at running back than he has had in the first five games of the season.

The Cowboys were built to win on their running game and have yet to have a 100-yard rusher. They have 269 fewer yards on the ground than they had through five games last year.

Hence the thought that Michael will get more work.

Fantasy Impact: 

As the story said, it's just the 'thought' right now that Michael will get more work but there have been grumblings for a while. It remains to be seen just how much more he gets compared to Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden. The lack of a consistent running game has hurt the passing game. Through five games last year the Cowboys had 12 pass plays of at least 20 yards. This year they have 10. Last year, Romo had nine touchdown passes through five games. This year they have five. Michael is at least worth an add in deeper leagues.
