2015 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Jun-21-2015 by Shawn Childs
Randle has only one game with more than 20 touches through his first two seasons. In that game, he gained 93 yards from scrimmage on 22 touches. Randle ran the ball only 51 times last season but averaged 6.7 yards per carry. For his pro career, Joseph has gained 507 yards on 105 carries with five TDs. He has caught 12 passes for 84 yards. Over his three years at Oklahoma State, Randle ran for 3,085 yards and 40 touchdowns on 564 carries. He scored 26 times in 2012. He also caught 108 passes for 917 yards and three TDs while in college. His talent is a step down from Murray's, but he'll have plenty of room to make plays behind a fantastic O-line. Randle isn't a lock to start for the Cowboys and may not keep the job if he is named the starter for Week 1, but he's been playing with the first-team offense in OTAs. I believe his youth and ability to catch passes will lead to him getting the most touches in this backfield, which has injury-prone options elsewhere. Even with two-thirds of the RB touches, Randle should be in position to get 300 touches, 1,500 yards, double-digit scores and 40-plus catches. He could be a top-12 Fantasy back.

Darren McFadden predictably suffered yet another injury at OTAs, a hamstring this time. He did return for minicamp and is now back to full strength. The long-time Raider isn't sure how the depth chart will shake out, however, he spoke on the matter of both his hamstring and the depth chart recently. "It's (hamstring) doing great," McFadden said. "I feel like I had a decent mini-camp, so I'm just looking forward to putting in my work and getting ready for training camp. I'm just going out there and making plays. Right now, we don't know much. We just know we're competing for a job. I'm with a lot of younger backs now. My thing is, I just try to give those guys some of the knowledge I know from being around the league seven, eight years now. Those guys are great athletes and great players. I look forward to being back there beside them."
It's sad to think such a talented player may have messed up his whole career because of a stupid mistake as a kid. For those of you that don't know, McFadden broke the foot that has given him issues throughout his career and started all his issues while at Arkansas in a bar fight. Still, that doesn't change the fact that he is now injury prone and declining. At this point in his career, he's nothing more than a very late-round flier. He's fallen behind Joseph Randle on the depth chart and has very little left in the tank. His only hope is Randle going down and the offensive line plays so well that literally anybody can run behind it.
