Garrett: RB Joseph Randle has gotten 'better and better' in passing game

Dallas News - [Full Article]

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett was asked how RB Joseph Randle is faring in the passing game.

“I think he’s gotten better and better,” Garrett said. “If you want to play on three downs, you also need to have awareness in the passing game of protection, of being able to run routes. And typically guys coming out of school don’t have that same exposure to those things that we’re going to ask him to do. Joseph has worked hard from Day One since he’s been here. I think he’s improved in all those different areas.”

Fantasy Impact: 

He was highly effective (6.7 YPC) in 2014 and is reportedly showing more maturity after several off-the-field issues. He's not going to see a DeMarco Murray-type workload, but 225-250 carries is feasible if he wins the lead back job, and it appears he will. It's a good sign that Garrett is even talking about Randle as a potential three-down back.
