Run-DMC is planted squarely at No. 3 in the depth chart behind Zeke and Alfred Morris. Unless things change, there is no reason to draft him. If he sniffs more touches, keep an eye on him, as anyone who gets carries behind that terrific offensive line could be in for substantial fantasy points.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that teams around the NFL have contacted the Dallas Cowboys in an attempt to acquire RB Darren McFadden in a trade. Rapoport later added that the Cowboys "really want to keep" McFadden in 2016. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: McFadden is garnering trade interest from teams around the NFL, but the Cowboys do not appear to be interested in parting ways with the veteran rusher. McFadden has been sidelined with an elbow injury and missed all of training camp and the preseason, however, the team has not ruled him out for Week 1. In the wake of McFadden's absence, and Alfred Morris' solid performance in the preseason, the former Redskins back will likely enter the upcoming fantasy football campaign as Ezekiel Elliott's handcuff.
