This doesn't come as much of a surprise after McFadden was a healthy scratch for the majority of the season, seeing just one snap in Week 10. The Cowboys plan to continue to use Alfred Morris and Rod Smith in the backfield. Rod Smith actually out-snapped Morris in Week 12, so game script and usage definitely is something to be monitored. Even with McFadden out of the mix, fantasy owners still have a RBBC (and a struggling offense) to decipher.
