Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Could remain inactive in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFadden could be included among the Cowboys' seven inactives for the Week 7 matchup with the 49ers after starting running back Ezekiel Elliott was granted a temporary restraining order Tuesday for his six-game suspension, the Associated Press reports.

Since being handed the suspension during the preseason in August, Elliott has had the ban overturned twice by the courts, and it remains unlikely that the saga has concluded. However, the most recent legal decision at least tentatively puts Elliott on track to play Sunday against San Francisco, meaning that McFadden will likely miss out on an opportunity to earn his first snaps of 2017. With Elliott having suited up in all five games to date, Alfred Morris has acted as his primary backup, while the lone other running back on the roster, Rod Smith, has seen the bulk of his snaps on special teams. Since McFadden doesn't offer any value on the special teams units, the Cowboys have little reason to keep him active as a third-string option when all of their other running backs are available.

Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Could have role in offense after bye
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFadden could find himself with a role in the Cowboys' offense following the team's Week 6 bye if fellow running back Ezekiel Elliott is forced to begin serving the six-game suspension he was handed by the NFL.

McFadden has been a healthy inactive all season, but if Elliott is ultimately suspended, the Cowboys would likely turn to either him or Alfred Morris as the team's top running back. Morris has been the No. 2 option behind Elliott all season, but McFadden has shown the Cowboys he is capable of handling primary ball-carrier duties, running for over 1,000 yards just two years ago, so the team could decide to look his direction despite the way the depth chart has looked up to this point.

Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Inactive in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFadden (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Packers, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

A healthy scratch in every game this season, McFadden will likely be a regular on the inactive list unless Ezekiel Elliott's legal prospects take a turn for the worse. The other options are an injury afflicting either Elliott or Alfred Morris. In the end, McFadden isn't deserving of a roster spot in the majority of fantasy formats.

Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Inactive Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFadden (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Monday at Arizona, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

For the third time in as many games to begin the season, Alfred Morris and not McFadden will serve as the primary backup to Ezekiel Elliott. McFadden's best chance at active status is likely a change in the legal proceedings surrounding Elliott's pending suspension, though an injury to Elliott or Morris would also do the trick.

Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Inactive again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFadden (coach's decision) was inactive for Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Broncos, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

It's becoming increasingly clear that Alfred Morris is the true backup to Ezekiel Elliott at this point, as McFadden was a healthy scratch for the second time in as many weeks Sunday.
