Cowboys' Rod Smith: Picks up 43 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith ran for 27 yards on four carries and added 16 yards on two catches during Sunday's 29-23 win over the Eagles.

The 43 total yards nearly doubled Smith's previous high for the season as Dallas piled up yardage on a weak Philly defense, particularly through the air as Dak Prescott set a career high with 455 passing yards. Between the offensive productivity and the game going into overtime, Smith topped five touches for just the second time this season. Given Ezekiel Elliott's (neck) stranglehold on carries in Dallas, accounting for a whopping 72 percent of them, there still isn't much room for Smith to work. If the team decides to rest their star back a little down the stretch, Smith would have a so-so matchup Sunday against a middle-of-the-road Colts run defense.

Cowboys' Rod Smith: Notches two carries on Thanksgiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith ran for seven yards on two carries during Thursday's 31-23 win over Washington.

The trickle of production continues for Smith. The Ohio State product hasn't accumulated five touches in a game since Week 6 and has tallied double-digit yardage just once in that span. Lack of opportunities aside, Thursday looks like a tough matchup for Smith. The Saints have been among the best in the league against the run, holding opponents to 3.6 yards per carry.

Cowboys' Rod Smith: Minimal action again in Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith failed to gain a yard only his only carry and caught both his targets for eight yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

With Ezekiel Elliott seeing a huge workload and averaging 5.7 yards a carry over the last three weeks, the Cowboys have had little reason to try to work Smith into the game plan. Don't expect that to change down the stretch as the team tries to capture an NFC East title that seemed highly improbable before its Week 8 bye.

Cowboys' Rod Smith: Gathers 22 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith rushed for eight yards on two carries and added a 14-yard reception during Sunday' 27-20 win over the Eagles.

The 22 total yards tied a season high for Smith, who notched his first carries in almost a month. Smith has accounted for just 7 percent of Dallas' carries this season in a run game dominated by Ezekiel Elliott and, to a lesser extent, Dak Prescott. Sunday brings a matchup against a Falcons defense among the worst in the league against the run, giving up 5.2 yards per carry. That's probably good news for Elliott and Prescott moreso than the seldom-used Smith.

Cowboys' Rod Smith: Snags a pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith caught one of two passes for eight yards during Monday's 28-14 loss to Tennessee.

Smith has now failed to record a carry in two consecutive games and has not topped 10 total yards since Week 4. Dallas remains an offense built around running with starter Ezekiel Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott. As Elliott is also a great receiver, Smith doesn't add much as a third-down back. He's not worth considering Sunday, even against a Philadelphia defense giving up 4.5 yards per carry.
