The Cowboys chose to re-sign McFadden even though they still had Alfred Morris under contract. He should be the clear backup to Ezekiel Elliott and would inherit the pilot seat to the best running game in the league if Elliott goes down.

Summary

Darren McFadden has a better reputation than his career statistics warrant. The nine-year veteran has only two 1,000-yard seasons, has scored just 33 touchdowns (4 per season), and has missed 42 games. Last year, McFadden played in just three games and tallied 104 yards from scrimmage. On most teams, his roster spot would be in jeopardy but the former Arkansas Razorback's roster spot is probably safe because Jerry Jones is a fellow alum. Assuming he makes the team, McFadden sits a distant third on the depth chart and would need a devastating series of injuries to Elliott and Morris to have fantasy relevance. (May 21)
