Cowboys aim to lessen DeMarco Murray's workload


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he wants to lighten the burden on running back DeMarco Murray, who has rushed 130 times for 670 yards in the first five games, reports ESPN.com. Murray is on pace to tie Larry Johnson's NFL single-season record of 416 carries.

"DeMarco was out there and we think that's probably too many carries in the game, week in and week out," Garrett told the website. "He ended up with 31 [Sunday], so we'd like to get that number lower. We'd really just like to get the other guys an opportunity. I don't see any wear and tear in DeMarco, but having said that, we want to make sure we create a rotation and we'll focus on doing that in the next few weeks."

Backups Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar have combined for 22 carries this year.

Speaking of Murray, Garrett added: "We've got to make sure we take care of him over the course of the season, but we'd do that with any player."


Cowboys receive minor contributions in Week 5 OT victory over Texans


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Joseph Randle wasn't asked to do much behind DeMarco Murray, and was limited to four yards on two carries. Dwayne Harris muffed a punt in the second quarter and caught all three of his targets for 30 yards. Cole Beasley caught all four of his targets for Cole Beasley yards in a 23-20 overtime victory.


Jerry Jones: Joseph Randle deserves more carries


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told radio station The Fan on Friday that he feels running back Joseph Randle has earned more playing time.

The words come as a bit of a surprise considering that featured back DeMarco Murray is blowing away all other NFL rushers with 534 yards on the ground and is averaging 5.4 YPC. But Randle has proven effective as well in limited opportunities at 6.3 YPC.

"The biggest threat probably to DeMarco's stats is Joseph Randle," Jones said. "Frankly, I don't want to leave [Lance] Dunbar out of this equation, either. If we can, it would be good to have Dunbar with a few more touches. But make no mistake about it, (Randle) can be effective out there, too. Should we? We probably should have at least Randle get a few more snaps."


Cowboys announce Week 3 inactives vs. Rams


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Joseph Randle 'really playing outstanding'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has rushed for 91 yards on 20 preseason carries (4.6 yards per carry). Owner Jerry Jones said Randle "is really playing outstanding" and "that's not an exaggeration," reports ESPN.com.

Randle, who averaged 3.0 yards per carry last year, said he's bigger, stronger and smarter. "I'm a year smarter in the playbook. I think that's all things that help me play fast," he said. "Now, I'm just working on playing fast every play I'm out there. That comes with practice."

Randle is running third behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar.


Joseph Randle leads Cowboys in rushing again vs. Ravens


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle led the team in rushing yards in its first preseason game, and he accomplished the same feat again Saturday, racking up 41 yards on seven carries and adding another eight yards on one reception in his team's loss to the Ravens.

Randle was the third back in for the Cowboys, but he did see action at the end of the first quarter as well as in the second and third quarters before wrapping up his night. He may continue to serve as the No. 3 back during the regular season, but Randle would be the favorite to lead the team in carries each week if something were to happen to starter DeMarco Murray.


Joseph Randle rushes for 50 yards in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) With DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar sidelined, Cowboys running back Joseph Randle earned the start and played well in Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers in San Diego.

Joseph Randle ahead of Ryan Williams for now


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) The Cowboys will go into the season with DeMarco Murray as the starting running back and Lance Dunbar being used as a specialist, reports ESPN.

But Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams are competing for the No. 3 job, and Randle "has the inside track." The report also says Randle "would likely take over the every-down role if something were to happen to Murray."


Joseph Randle scores in garbage time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle rushed nine times for 54 yards and a touchdown against Chicago's league-worst run defense. Randle's longest run went 19 yards, and he scored on a 1-yard run with 11 seconds left. It was Randle's second touchdown.

Randle, who was not targeted in the passing game, will back up DeMarco Murray again Week 15 vs. Green Bay.


Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar held in check


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) The Cowboys got back the services of starting running back DeMarco Murray on Sunday during the Week 9 win over Minnesota. That meant fewer touches for Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar

Randle rushed just once in the game for 3 yards. Dunbar had three carries for minus-6 yards. Dunbar did have three catches for 17 yards on three targets. Randle was not targeted in the passing game. Dallas plays at New Orleans Week 10. 


Joseph Randle mediocre in place of DeMarco Murray


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle got the start Sunday during the Week 8 game at Detroit with DeMarco Murray needing another week on the inactive list. 

Randle was ineffective as the starting back in the game as the entire Dallas running game struggled without Murray. Randle rushed 14 times for just 26 yards as he averaged 1.9 yards per carry. He had a long run of 7 yards and did not score. 

Randle added three receptions for 18 yards in the game. He was targeted four times in the passing game by Tony Romo. Randle will likely go back to backing up Murray in the Week 9 game against Minnesota. 


Joseph Randle gets the start for Cowboys


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Report: DeMarco Murray 'not looking good' for Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2013) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is "not looking good" for Sunday's contest against the Lions in Week 8, according to Brian Broaddus of the team's official website on Saturday.

Murray missed last week's game against the Eagles due to a sprained MCL and was limited in practice three days in a row. He was officially listed as questionable on the injury report leading up to Sunday. According to Broaddus, Murray may have pushed himself too quickly to get back on the field. Lance Dunbar and Joseph Randle will split the load, if he is unable to start against Detroit.


Value high for Joseph Randle if DeMarco Murray still out


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(1:24 pm ET) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle registered a career-high 92 scrimmage yards in his debut as a starter last week at Philadelphia. What can he do for an encore Week 8 at Detroit?

Unfortunately, his Fantasy value will be tied to the health of starting running back DeMarco Murray. Murray missed last week's game but could conceivably return against the Lions. That has yet to be decided.

If Randle gets the start, he'll be facing a team that has allowed the 12th-most Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season. That said, Detroit has not allowed a rushing touchdown in the last three games and have allowed just two over the last five weeks.

Phillip Tanner and Randle will share the load if Murray is out again, with Randle seeing the bulk of the work. He's looked solid in his limited time on the field for the Cowboys and can be considered a No. 2 Fantasy RB as long as Murray remains out.

Joseph Randle rushes for 65 yards in first career start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle made his first career start Week 7 at Philadelphia with starter DeMarco Murray sidelined by a knee injury. Randle performed well, rushing for a team-high 65 yards on 19 carries and added three catches for 28 yards.

"It felt really good and I got more comfortable as the game progressed," Randle said, per ESPN. "First half was a little slow but then we got moving well on offense. I think I ran the ball well North to South down the field but there are always things you would like to do better." 

Randle's longest carry went for 12 yards and his longest catch went for 13 yards. Unfortunately, backup Phillip Tanner had the team's only rushing touchdown Sunday -- a 1-yard score in the third quarter.

"I think Randle can really early the openings in the line and he understands his responsibilities more and more every week," Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "I thought he played really well today."

The Cowboys are back in action Week 8 at Detroit. Murray's status is week-to-week, so Randle might be called on to make another start Week 8.
