    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: McFadden should be in uniform against the Philadelphia Eagles and is expected to receive significant playing time since Ezekiel Elliott probably will see limited touches. Owners in most leagues should consider McFadden as a flex option.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 10:50am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (illness) is hopeful to play Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles despite dealing with an illness.

    Huddle Up: McFadden is expected to receive the majority of the touches versus the Eagles since Dallas has nothing to play for this weekend, but his illness leaves the door open for Alfred Morris and Lance Dunbar to play a larger-than-anticipated role. It's shaping up as a situation DFS owners will want to avoid.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 9:45pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden rushed a team-high 14 times for 49 yards in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. He was targeted once but had zero receptions.

    Huddle Up: McFadden was allowed to knock off some rust in the second half with the team resting Ezekiel Elliott, preserving their star rookie with home-field advantage already sewn up. McFadden could see extensive playing time in Week 17 if the team elects to rest their regulars.

  • Posted: 9/5/2016 1:28pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (arm) said he can't straighten his right arm all the way yet, and he may not be able to fully straighten it again.

    Huddle Up: McFadden is no stranger to injuries, and he'll take a backseat to Ezekiel Elliott this year anyway even if/when he is healthy. McFadden is still draftable, but he may not be worth starting in any given week as long as Elliott is healthy and with Alfred Morris also in the mix.

  • Posted: 9/3/2016 12:12pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) is expected to start the season on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. The Cowboys received trade interest in McFadden but they intend to keep him, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It appears like McFadden will not be able to play until around mid season, so owners probably should avoid him in their drafts. Ezekiel Elliott will receive most of the work at running back with McFadden out and should be a No. 1 running back in drafts.

  • Posted: 9/2/2016 9:34am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) said he is 'definitely' ready to return to practice Thursday, Sept. 1. McFadden will miss the first six games of the season if he is not activated from the Active/Non-Football Injury list before the final roster cuts Saturday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: Dallas has a crowded running back group with Ezekiel Elliott, Alfred Morris, Darius Jackson and Lance Dunbar also in the mix. Activating McFadden before Saturday could force the Cowboys to cut Jackson or Dunbar, so with McFadden also rumored to be involved in trade negotiations, his early-season fantasy value is extremely murky. At this point, it is best to downgrade him to a late-round target. His resurgence last season (4.6 yards per carry) was also likely more influenced by the Dallas offensive line than McFadden's running abilities.

  • Posted: 8/30/2016 12:19pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden has drawn trade interest from multiple teams, but the Cowboys want to hold on to the running back.

    Huddle Up: When healthy, McFadden will likely play second fiddle to Ezekiel Elliott in 2016. He was one of only seven running backs to run for at least 1,000 yards last season, but his injury history and status as a backup are too much to make him more than a deep flier.

  • Posted: 8/10/2016 9:47pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) is working hard in his recovery from offseason elbow surgery but is not expected to play in the near future, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    Huddle Up: McFadden will likely sit out the entire preseason. The Cowboys are hoping he'll be ready by Week 1 but it's not a given. McFadden is battling Alfred Morris to be the Cowboys primary No.2 back this season.

  • Posted: 7/24/2016 1:01pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) will have a scan on his broken elbow Monday, July 25, and he said hopes to return during the preseason.

    Huddle Up: McFadden is hoping to return earlier than originally expected, but regardless, top-pick Ezekiel Elliott remains the Cowboys' projected top back and workhorse.

  • Posted: 6/14/2016 12:45pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden underwent surgery on his elbow Tuesday, June 14, and is expected back in time for the season opener, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    Huddle Up: Well, here's momentum for the sizable Ezekiel Elliott rookie bandwagon as McFadden is expected to miss a "couple months" after reportedly injuring his elbow at home in a Memorial Day weekend mishap. In the meantime, expect the rookie to seize the Cowboys' lead role and never relinquish the grip.

  • Posted: 6/2/2016 11:10am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (personal) was not present for organized team activities Wednesday, June 1, for personal reasons. RB Ezekiel Elliott ran with the first team in McFadden's absence, while RB Alfred Morris took snaps with the second team.

    Huddle Up: Elliott with the first team, Morris with the second team, McFadden elsewhere... sounds like the Cowboys have their 2016 backfield plan set.

  • Posted: 6/1/2016 10:29am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden may end up as trade bait before the regular season, in the opinion of ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer.

    Huddle Up: But... but... but Jerrah said the Cowboys weren't trading any of their backs! There's no reason Dallas needs to keep him around behind first-round pick Ezekiel Elliott and recently signed Alfred Morris on the depth chart, so if the Cowboys are able to convince another team McFadden can stay healthy they should get whatever they can in return.
