Smith out-snapped Alfred Morris significantly on Sunday night against the Eagles, but that likely had to do with the score, as Morris simply is not a threat to catch passes. Smith did nothing with his work, however, gaining just 11 yards on eight carries. It's a great matchup on Thanksgiving against a Chargers team that allows the third-most fantasy points to opposing running backs and has allowed the most receptions to the position. But absent completely desperate circumstances, owners can't start Smith on Thanksgiving.

Rod Smith ineffective in backup role

Cowboys' running back Rod Smith was largely ineffective as the backup/complimentary running back to Alfred Morris, carrying the ball eight times for just 11 yards, as the team lost to the Eagles 37-9.

Fantasy Impact

Smith has just a handful of touches each of the past two weeks. It is clear that Alfred Morris is the starter here and Smith is nothing more than a low-value handcuff for the rest of the fantasy season.
