2015 Outlook: Of the veterans vying for time behind the Cowboys' great offensive line, Randle is the only one who had success in 2014. We've always viewed him as an upright runner who drifts and doesn't generate power. But as DeMarco Murray's backup, Randle showed some legit breakaway ability last season: 12 of his 55 touches gained 10-plus yards, including 2 TD runs of 40-plus. He faces questions about some troubling off-field behavior, but if Randle puts things together and winds up atop the depth chart in Dallas, big things could be in store for his fantasy owners.
2015 Outlook: When McFadden signed with the Cowboys this winter, a faction of the Twitterverse rejoiced that DMC would finally prove himself behind a great offensive line. Clearly, those people have never owned him in a fantasy league. Yes, we remember that McFadden was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2008 draft and had that one nice season way back in 2010 (1,664 total yards). But this hype train has run out of fuel. If an oft-injured and no-longer-explosive McFadden succeeds in Big D over the likes of Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams, it would be legit proof that the Dallas O-line can make anyone a star.
2015 Outlook: Williams came into the league in 2011 with legit leading-man credentials. As a redshirt freshman at Virginia Tech, he finished top-five nationally in rushing yards and was viewed as an explosive threat in close quarters. But he's mustered only 65 career touches in the NFL: He ruptured a patellar tendon as a rookie, then missed time with a shoulder injury. After spending 2014 on the Cowboys' practice squad, Williams signed a two-year deal this winter. As Dallas seeks to replace DeMarco Murray, Williams could emerge as an option, although Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden figure to get the first crack.
