Latest Updates

 

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

(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
(10/27/2013) The Cowboys will start Joseph Randle at running back Sunday at Detroit in place of injured starter DeMarco Murray, ESPN reports. Randle registered a career-high 92 scrimmage yards in his debut as a starter last week at Philadelphia. 

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
(10/23/2013) 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.


Joseph Randle taking first-team snaps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2013) As expected, Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle is getting the first-team reps in Wednesday's practice, reports ESPN.com. Randle is expected to start at Philadelphia with DeMarco Murray (knee) probably out.

Joseph Randle could be helpful if RB situation is dire


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) With Cowboys running backs DeMarco Murray (knee) and Lance Dunbar (hamstring) expected to sit out Week 7 at Philadelphia, rookie running back Joseph Randle will be a hot pickup in Fantasy leagues this week. If you are lucky enough to nab Randle off waivers (owned in 6 percent of leagues), then you might consider starting him in Week 7.

Running backs average 91.2 rushing yards, 37.8 receiving yards and 15 Fantasy points per week against the Eagles. The Fantasy Points Against average is a little bit low because running backs have just four touchdowns and three fumbles against Philadelphia. Most teams have taken to the air to expose Philadelphia's weak secondary.

Randle got his first carries Week 6 when Murray left the game with a knee injury. Though, Randle was far from impressive, despite scoring a touchdown. He rushed for just 17 yards on 11 carries. Perhaps he will perform better Sunday after a full week of reps with the first-team offense. Fantasy owners can consider Randle a low-end No. 2 Fantasy running back or flex option Week 7.


Cowboys trying to remain upbeat after losing top RB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) With the Cowboys preparing to move forward without running back DeMarco Murray, who suffered a sprained MCL Sunday vs. Washington, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team has confidence in running backs Phillip Tanner and Joseph Randle. Backup running back Lance Dunbar sat out Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, but he is expected back soon, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

"We’ll get Dunbar back, and Murray back, and get back to full speed there at running back," Jones said. "But obviously, I think Tanner and Randle, if he can’t go, will do a good job for us."

Randle got most of the work once Murray left the game, but the results weren't great. He rushed for 17 yards on 11 carries, though he had a rushing touchdown. Tanner had just one carry for 2 yards.

"Any time a player comes out of the game and can’t go back in, you’re concerned," Jones said. "We’re playing well with (Murray). There’s a fall-off there, but I also thought it was nice for Randle to get in there and get his feet wet. I think it’s only going to get better for him."


Joseph Randle steps in for injured DeMarco Murray


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle stepped in for an injured DeMarco Murray and scored his first career touchdown in Sunday's win over the Redskins in Week 6.

Randle filled in for Murray, who left the game in the second quarter with a left knee sprain. He broke for a short, 1-yard run in the fourth quarter to break the game open for Dallas. He finished with 11 carries for 17 yards and a touchdown on the ground and two catches for 15 yards in a 31-16 victory.

The rookie out of Oklahoma State could be in line to take over for Murray if he is unavailable in Week 7 when the Cowboys will take on the Eagles in Philadelphia. The Eagles allowed 94 rushing yards to Tampa Bay in Week 6.


Joseph Randle could see first action


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2013) The Cowboys have been unable to find a spot for rookie running back Joseph Randle, but that could change in Week 4 against the Chargers. With wide receiver Miles Austin dealing with a hamstring injury, the Cowboys may be able to get Randle active on the 46-man roster for game day Sunday, according to ESPN.com.

The Cowboys could go with four active running backs for the game, with Randle getting time on the special teams unit.

"I'm getting more into the special teams a little more," said Randle, who will participate on two units. "That's what they wanted from me and that's what they got." 


Cowboys list inactives for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) The Cowboys official inactive list featured seven players for Week 3 against the Rams, two of whom were listed on the injury report. Along with linebacker Ernie Sims (groin) and defensive lineman Anthony Spencer (knee), the Cowboys also listed offensive linemen David Arkin and Darrion Weems, tight end Andre Smith, running back Joseph Randle, and defensive lineman David Carter as inactive. 

Cowboys have no stars on inactive list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2013) The Cowboys got their injured players ready to roll on Sunday, which results in an inactive list without big names.

Included are wide receiver Cole Beasley, linebacker Ernie Sims, running back Joseph Randle, guard David Arkin, defensive tackle Caesar Rayford, left tackle Darrion Weems and tight end Andre Smith.


Lance Dunbar has sprained left foot


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/19/2013) Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar missed practice with a left foot sprain and is in a walking boot according to the official team website. He is expected to miss three to four weeks.  

Dunbar appeared to have the inside track at being the No. 2 back for the Cowboys before the injury. Now the likes of Phillip Tanner and Joseph Randle are in the mix to back up DeMarco Murray. 


Joseph Randle ready for training camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle is looking forward to training camp now that the cast is off his surgically repaired thumb.

"Don't get me wrong, I've been putting in some good work," he said to the Cowboys' official team website. "There's a lot of other things I can be doing, and I can't be concerned with what I can't do right now. I'm getting a lot of great conditioning in."

While he wasn't able to do extensive running back work with his teammates, Randle said the solitary work could benefit him in ways he hasn't seen before.

"I think I'll be coming into the year in the best shape I've ever been in -- physically, and all of that," Randle said. "Learning the playbook, too -- we've been grinding on the plays. Because you won't be on the field anyway if you don't know the plays."


Joseph Randle getting cast off soon


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/28/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle said the cast on his injured thumb will be coming off soon, reports FOX Sports.

Randle said the cast would have been off already, but the doctor went on vacation. Randle missed all of the team's offseason workouts with two surgeries on his thumb. 

Randle is competing to be the No. 2 running back in Dallas behind DeMarco Murray.


Lance Dunbar not out of fight for backup role in Big D


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2013) Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar had a terrific offseason and could still finish as the primary backup to DeMarco Murray this fall reports ESPN. It's been presumed that Joseph Randle would land the gig but Randle's been sidelined following a pair of thumb surgeries while Dunbar has earned the trust of Tony Romo thanks to his pass blocking skills and hands out of the backfield. 

Lance Dunbar showing off skills


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2013) The Dallas Cowboys are expected to use rookie Joseph Randle as the No. 2 running back behind DeMarco Murray, but Lance Dunbar could carve out a role for himself.

According to ESPN, Dunbar had a terrific offseason and appears to have earned the trust of quarterback Tony Romo with his receiving skills. The report says Dunbar can be elusive out of the backfield and give linebackers some trouble. He also has proven to be a willing blocker.

The bad news for Dunbar, however, is Randle has been out all offseason with a thumb injury. When Randle returns in training camp he could reduce Dunbar's role.


Randle had two thumb surgeries


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2013) Cowboys rookie Joseph Randle disclosed he actually had two thumb surgeries this offseason, causing him to miss all of the team's offseason workouts. He told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he'll get the cast off in a week and wear a brace. Randle also said he's put on close to 10 pounds since last year. He's expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Randle readying for camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/6/2013) Cowboys rookie rusher Joseph Randle told the Dallas Morning News he's going to get the cast off of his thumb in two weeks and be a full participant in training camp in late July. He also mentioned that he's spending his extra time getting the playbook down, saying it's the biggest difference between playing college ball and pro ball thus far. "Learning the playbook is always first," Randle said. "The plays are a little more complex than my old offense, but I’ll pick up on it. It’ll be good."

Randle limited until training camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/13/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle is recovering from thumb surgery the team claims it knew about before drafting him in April. He's expected to be in a cast for six to eight weeks but will do individual drills and take mental reps during offseason minicamps. "It's certainly a restriction on his thumb, but I think candidly there are a lot of things we can do out here in OTAs and get that thumb clubbed up and he’ll get a lot of work in, a lot of valuable repetition," owner Jerry Jones said. "And we made that decision when we drafted him. Was he going to be able to be ready and that is mentally as well, prepared, to get out here to camp and not have to make up all the lost time in OTAs? I think he will be."

Randle has brace on hand


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/2013) ESPN reports Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle is sporting a brace on his hand.

Cowboys get Murray handcuff in Randle


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/27/2013) The Cowboys drafted Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle with the 18th pick in the fifth round on Saturday. The Dallas Morning News reports that with Felix Jones no longer on the roster the Cowboys were looking for a back to compliment DeMarco Murray. Randle rushed for 1,417 yards and 14 touchdowns last season and 1,216 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2011. The 6-0, 200-pounder, who started 31 of 39 games at Oklahoma State, was also a valuable receiver, catching 108 balls for 917 yards and three touchdowns. “The NFL is a two-back system now so guys need other guys to come in and you don’t want to drop the tempo off much,” Randle said of playing with Murray. “I think we’ll work well together.”
