RB - FA
This Week Outlook
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Chicago Bears RB Ryan Nall is signing with the Dallas Cowboys.
Nall, the former Oregon State Beaver, struggled to make his way onto the NFL playing field while playing for the Chicago Bears. Nall has only 12 career rushing yards since going undrafted in the 2018 NFL draft, and will face an uphill battle trying to work into the Cowboys RB rotation with Ezekiel Elliot and Tony Pollard sitting atop the depth chart. Nall provides depth for the Cowboys RB room and will need to impress during OTA’s and training camp to crack the teams 53-man roster. Nall is not a player who needs to be rostered in fantasy leagues.
Ryan Nall saw one carry which he failed to gain a yard on in Sunday's Wild Card loss to the Saints.
Nall only saw three carries during the entire regular season so it was a head-scratcher to see Bears coach Matt Nagy draw up a dive up the gut on a crucial third down. Nall will likely play a deep relief role next year with David Montgomery still on a rookie deal and Tarik Cohen fresh off an extension.
Ryan Nall carried one time for no gain and brought in one of two targets for 18 yards in the Bears’ 19-13 loss to the Vikings on MNF.
After getting involved as a receiver in his last game out, Nall was an afterthought in the backfield as Cordarrelle Patterson handled the bulk of the workload. Even while David Montgomery is out, Nall isn't a player who belongs on your fantasy roster.
Ryan Nall brought in all four of his targets for 35 yards and a TD in the Bears’ 24-17 loss to the Titans on Sunday.
Nall got involved in the fourth quarter after David Montgomery exited with a concussion. The former snagged a six-yard touchdown grab late in garbage time with Chicago trailing 24-3, and he may have some use in deep PPR formats next week against Minnesota if Montgomery is forced to sit out.
Ryan Nall rushed 10 times for 31 yards and added one reception for two yards in the Bears’ loss to the Titans in Thursday’s preseason finale.
Nall managed a pedestrian 3.1 yards per carry in Thursday's loss, finishing with a modest 33 yards from scrimmage. He's trying to earn a spot on the Bears' final roster, though this is a crowded and talented backfield.
