On Tuesday running back Darren McFadden verbalized

On Tuesday running back Darren McFadden verbalized what we've all known for a while: The Dallas Cowboys will employ a running back by committee. "You know the competitor in me definitely wants to be the No. 1 guy that goes out there. But at the same time, it's like, man, you know we're going to split carries," McFadden told KRLD-FM when asked if starting matters, via the Dallas Morning News. "So whoever goes out there or goes out there second -- I just know whenever I do get a chance to get the ball in my hands, I'm going to go out there and go 110 percent." Watch out-of-market games McFadden returned from the physically unable to perform list last weekend and has been taking first-team reps http://www.2016winterclassicshop.com/bruins-kevan-miller-winter-classic-jersey. The running back then provided a scouting report on himself and Joseph Randle. "You're going to get a guy who's going to stand in there and protect the pass, pick up the blitz and protect the quarterback," the 27-year-old back said of himself. "A hard runner. When I see the hole, I know how to hit it. A lot of people just look at the speed that I have. If you watch me play, you know I'm a pretty physical back also. That's one thing a lot of people don't think about when they think about Darren McFadden http://www.2016winterclassicshop.com/canadiens-paul-byron-winter-classic-jersey. They don't think about the physical-ness. I definitely love making contact." As for Randle: "He's a very slashy guy," McFadden said. "The one thing that I've learned about him since we've been out here is he's a hard worker http://www.2016winterclassicshop.com/canadiens-michael-bournival-winter-classic-jersey, and I love to see that in a running back. He's a guy who can (hit a) home run at any time. He's not afraid to stick his nose in there and pick up a blitz." Health likely will be the determining factor in how the carries end up being divided early in the season -- both backs missed time during training camp http://www.2016winterclassicshop.com/bruins-joe-morrow-winter-classic-jersey. McFadden has averaged just 3.4 yards per carry the last three seasons and Randle has earned just 105 carries in two seasons, providing neither a leg up. While either could stand out behind the best offensive line in the NFL, both understand they will split opportunities -- which Fantasy Football fans hate to hear.
