Joseph Randle RB DAL 1 Day10 Comments

Randle worked with the first team offense during Wednesday's practice, the Dallas Morning News reports.

If you're trying to figure out which Cowboys backup RB to grab in the event DeMarco Murray (hand) can't play, Randle is more likely to see significant touches than change-of-pace back Lance Dunbar. Randle's had some big runs this season behind the impressive Dallas O-line, and the Colts rank in the bottom half of the league in both YPC and rushing TDs allowed, so if he does get the start he could be a very solid fantasy play this week.

With DeMarco Murray (hand) iffy for Sunday's game against the Colts, Randle is a candidate to see added work in the Cowboys' Week 16 backfield, ESPN.com reports.

While Murray has not been ruled out for Sunday's game, given that he will have surgery on Monday to repair a broken bone in his left hand, there's a decent chance that he'll miss the contest, and in such a scenario, Randle and Lance Dunbar would be in line to head the Cowboys' Week 16 backfield. While some form of time-share would likely be in effect in that event, Randle -- who has carried 34 times for 237 yards and two touchdowns this season -- would appear to be the higher-percentage fantasy dart than Dunbar, who has 26 carries for 91 yards to his credit in 2014.

Randle took his lone carry for a 17-yard touchdown in Thursday's 41-28 win over the Bears.

Randle could perhaps come into a bigger role in Week 17, if the Cowboys unexpectedly have little or nothing to play for. Otherwise, he's stuck behind DeMarco Murray, who has a nearly-unthinkable 320 carries through 13 games. For now, Randle is a very valuable handcuff and little else, though his one touch in Thursday's game was rather impressive.

Randle carried the ball seven times for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

He was quiet other than a 40-yard TD run in the third quarter, but the important takeaway is that Randle seems to have regained his spot as DeMarco Murray's primary backup. Should Murray get hurt, Randle would become an immediate waiver priority given the giant holes the Cowboys' offensive line can create for him.

Randle carried the ball just once, for a two-yard gain, on Sunday.

He seems determined to put himself in coach Jason Garrett's doghouse, following up his shoplifting incident a couple of weeks ago by getting into a jawing match with Dez Bryant during practice this week that even had Jason Witten aggravated. Unless DeMarco Murray gets hurt, it's hard to imagine Randle having much fantasy value the rest of the way.

Randle lost a fumble and gained 23 yards on three carries in Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Redskins.

Randle coughed up the ball at the end of a 12-yard gain in the first quarter, and he only saw one more touch the rest of the way. The Cowboys are still heavily riding DeMarco Murray, with Randle the top back for early downs, while Lance Dunbar handles the backup duties for passing downs.

Randle will take the field Sunday against the Giants in spite of his recent arrest for shoplifting, NFL.com reports.

Other than a significant fine handed down by the Cowboys, Randle won't face further punishment in the form of a suspension. As the only effective reserve running back on the Cowboys' roster, he could begin to garner more work as the season wears on and DeMarco Murray's (illness) carry count ticks ever higher. On the season, Randle has supplied 113 yards on 16 rushes, good for 7.1 YPC.

Randle will not be suspended following Monday night's arrest on a Class B theft charge, but the running back will be fined by the Cowboys, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Randle was arrested for shoplifting cologne and underwear from a department store Monday. Now out on bond, Randle is reportedly expected to be fined between $10,000 and $30,000 by the Cowboys. Furthermore, the running back may be forced to undergo some sort of evaluation as part of the NFL's personal conduct policy. Nonetheless, it appears Randle's curious legal issue won't sideline him moving forward, but his fantasy value remains capped by his status as the Cowboys' No. 3 tailback.

Randle was arrested Monday night for shoplifting "a bottle of cologne", the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Randle was arrested for a Class B theft and is now out of jail on bond. His arrest comes after a five-carry, 52-yard performance at Seattle over the weekend, Randle's best showing of the season thus far. At the moment, it's unclear if Randle will face discipline for his run-in with the law.
