Joseph Randle was one of the only positives for the Cowboys, who lost 6-23 versus the 49ers at Levi stadium. Randle had a stat line of seven Car, 30 Yds rushing and zero TDs. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Randle was initially ruled "doubtful", but ended up playing behind Darren McFadden who disappointed. This was great news for Randle who will see an increased workload if McFadden can't contribute. Randle lead the league with 6.7 YPC last season, but it was on limited work (51 Car) and running behind DeMarco Murray who Dallas lost in free agency. Randle's current ADP of RB22 and 42nd overall offers major upside, especially if McFadden gets injured or can't produce.

Fantasy Impact: This is starting to become a concerning trend with Randle, who missed last weeks game also due to the injury. This opens up the door for Darren McFadden to get a run with the first team offense and show he still has something left to contribute. If McFadden looks good and can stay healthy it will negatively affect Randle's fantasy ceiling, perhaps dropping him into the low end RB2 range. However the big "if" is McFadden staying healthy, since he's missed 29 games with 15 different injuries in his seven year NFL career. Randle's ADP is currently RB 22, according to fantasypros.com.

Fantasy Impact: Obliques are known to linger, and considering the setback you can expect the Cowboys to take it easy with Randle. This means more time for Darren McFadden, who's recovering from his own injuries. Considering the injuries that all three of the Cowboys' RBs are dealing with, including Lance Dunbar, it's anyone's guess how things will be spread around in the early going.

Now that the Dallas backfield is finally getting healthy it looks like the Cowboys will roll with the combination of Randle, McFadden and Dunbar to start the season. (Source: Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

Fantasy Impact: This was somewhat expected since the Cowboys haven't signed a free agent RB even after Randle, McFadden, Dunbar and Johnson all got injured during training camp. However, Randle should lead the committee in touches and will get an even bigger workload if or when McFadden goes down with another injury. But until then Randle's fantasy ceiling will be capped to no more than a RB2 range based on his limited workload. McFadden has missed 29 games with 15 different injuries in his seven year NFL career.

Starting gig is his to lose and he'll run behind the best O- line in football.
Breaking Football | Aug 27th
He's not a flashy talent but he was productive in college and his north/south running is perfect behind an elite Dallas o-line.
Yahoo! Sports | Aug 27th
He's nota household name yet, but DAL O-line can certainly make him into one if he gets the lead role vacated by D. Murray - given competition, hard not to think he will

The Cowboys running back situation is a mess and that makes it a mess for fantasy. We know they have a great offensive line and whoever gets the most touches should have value. Right now Randle is first in line for those touches with Darren McFadden close behind. I don't love Randle's ability so I do want to get him at value instead of paying up for the Cowboys' offensive line, especially when he could split or lose work to McFadden.

Dallas ran the ball frequently in 2014, but with DeMarco Murray now in Philadelphia and new offensive coordinator Scott Linehan in the mix, look for a decline in running percentage this season. Lineham was the OC for 5 years in Detroit where he never exceeded a 40.4% run percentage. Joseph Randle is no DeMarco Murray, but miss the RB run in the early rounds, you can draft Randle in round 4 or Darren McFadden in rounds 7 or 8.

I originally had McFadden as the lead Dallas back, but he has had hamstring issues all off-season. McFadden is dead to me, he will probably not last more than five games before suffering an injury. Randle is going to lead a committee of running backs in touches and should be a low RB2 this year.

Randle is slated to be the starter, but Jerry Jones loves fellow Arkansas alum McFadden and a street agent or cut may end up the starter here
FFLockerRoom | Aug 25th
Apparently it's Randle's job to lose but that doesn't give me much confidence. Buyer beware.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 23rd
Randle is your starting RB in Dallas for now, but there are a number of RB's that will want his touches. He is so risky, but is on a team that could give him upside. He is a gamble pick for 2015 and I would recommend you steer clear.
