RB - FA
Week 12 Outlook
Former Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle has reportedly been hit with yet another felony charge while imprisoned in a Kansas jail for allegedly making threats against a Sedgewick County deputy.
This is yet another troubling incident in the life of former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle. Not even one year ago, Randle was the starting running back for the Cowboys before wracking up multiple arrests and charges that led to hs release. Due to multiple violations of the league's conduct policy, Randle may never receive the opportunity to resurrect his career as a pro.
Joseph Randle once again found himself under arrest, this time with charges of battery and drug possession.
It's hard to believe that just last season Randle has significant fantasy value running behind the Cowboys' offensive line. It was a quick fall from grace, and it's now hard to imagine him returning to the NFL anytime soon, if at all.
The Dallas Cowboys have released RB Joseph Randle, according to reports. Randle was dealing with an injury and facing suspension for off-the-field issues. He entered the season as the team's starting RB.
This move further boosts Darren McFadden's value. Randle had a few good moments to start the season, but he largely disappointed as the expected starter behind one of the league's top offensive lines. His departure along with the injury to Lance Dunbar will have McFadden and Christine Michael as the primary ball carriers in Dallas.
Joseph Randle will not play Week 8 due to an oblique strain. Randle is also facing suspension due to an off-the-field issue.
It's hard to say what, if any, value Randle will hold moving forward considering his injury, the suspension news and the emergence of Darren McFadden. Since the Cowboys' RB situation has been in such a state of flux this season, owners will want to monitor the next few weeks to see if Randle is worth retaining.
Joseph Randle is facing a multiple-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, according to reports. The violation stems from an incident with the mother of his son, during which the police were called.
ESPN said that the best-case scenario is a fine, but Randle will "more likely" be suspended, potentially for multiple games. Things have gone from bad to worse for Randle, who on top of everything else suffered an injury Week 7. He's seemingly been supplanted by Darren McFadden, at least for the time being.
