According to ESPN Dallas, there are people within the Cowboys who believe Joseph Randle can be a 1,400-yard rusher.
Those people are likely sharing a drink with Jerry Jones, who always looks at his players with rose-colored glasses. Randle is a decent back who averaged a whopping 6.73 YPC on his 51 carries in 2014, but he's nowhere near DeMarco Murray's skill level. There are also questions about Randle as a receiver and in pass pro. Still, he's a name to monitor closely (along with Ryan Williams and Lance Dunbar) as we wait to see if DeMarco bolts in free agency. Jan 27 - 12:39 PM

Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official website does not believe the team's 2015 starting running back is on the roster right now.

In other words, Broaddus believes that DeMarco Murray will walk in free agency and Joseph Randle/Lance Dunbar won't be handed the gig. Perhaps that's because of a strong 2015 running back draft class, headed by Melvin Gordon and Todd Gurley. Or maybe Jerry Jones will make a play for Texas native Adrian Peterson. Murray's 2015 landing spot is obviously one of the biggest dominoes fantasy owners should be tracking come March.

Joseph Randle rushed twice for 15 yards in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

Randle showed more explosiveness this season, finishing 2014 with a whopping 6.73 YPC average. The 23-year-old's quickness has clearly improved from his college days, and Randle has always been a skilled pass catcher. With DeMarco Murray headed to free agency -- and the Cowboys not expected to meet his contract demands -- Randle projects as a potential 2015 breakout player.

Joseph Randle rushed four times for 69 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' Week 17 win over the Redskins.

He added a three-yard reception. With the Redskins packing it in late, Randle burst through the hole for a 65-yard score with 1:40 remaining. He'll continue to operate as DeMarco Murray's breather back during the postseason.

Joseph Randle rushed 12 times for 37 yards Week 16 against the Colts.

With DeMarco Murray limited by a hand injury, Randle saw double-digit carries for the first time this season. Dallas clinched the NFC East with the win over Indianapolis and only has an outside shot at a first-round bye, meaning Randle could see a lot of run Week 17 against Washington.

RB Joseph Randle handled the first-team reps during the team portion of Wednesday's practice.

DeMarco Murray (hand) participated in individual drills and even caught some passes two days after surgery, putting him on track to play against the Colts. But if he can't, Randle would handle the majority of base back duties, including goal-line work. That's key as eight of DeMarco's 11 touchdowns this season have come from three yards out or closer. Randle is the preferred handcuff while we await more news on Murray.

Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' website expects Joseph Randle to be Dallas' starting running back if DeMarco Murray (hand) misses time.

Murray is currently having surgery to repair a broken band on his left hand. His status for Week 16 is uncertain. Randle would handle early-down work with Lance Dunbar in the change-of-pace and satellite role. If Murray can't play Sunday versus the Colts, Randle would be a quality RB2 fantasy start.

Joseph Randle rushed for a 17-yard touchdown in Dallas' Week 14 win over the Bears.

Randle's lone spelling of workhorse DeMarco Murray happened to come in the red zone, where he ran right through the Bears' invisible defense. The Cowboys appear poised to ride Murray hard as they look to clinch a playoff berth, rendering Randle nothing more than a handcuff.

Joseph Randle had two carries for six yards in Week 13 against the Eagles.

Randle got only three touches behind DeMarco Murray. He remains just a handcuff going into the fantasy playoffs.

Joseph Randle was held without a carry in Week 12.

Randle wasn't targeted in the pass game, and didn't get any touches behind DeMarco Murray. Lance Dunbar played more snaps this week and had a 26-yard catch in the second quarter. Randle remains just a handcuff for Murray owners.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 01:47:00 AM

Joseph Randle rushed for 56 yards and a score on 7 carries in the Cowboys' Week 10 win over the Jaguars.

Randle cruised through a huge hole for a 40-yard touchdown in the third quarter. It was his first touchdown this season and the longest run of his career. Randle has looked good in limited work this season, and would be a high-end starting option if DeMarco Murray went down. He is a must-own for Murray owners heading into the fantasy playoffs.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 04:23:00 PM

Joseph Randle rushed once for two yards in Dallas' Week 9 loss to the Cardinals.

There was no work to be had for DeMarco Murray's handcuff with the Cowboys playing from behind for the majority of the afternoon. Randle has no standalone value in re-draft leagues.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 05:49:00 PM

ESPN Dallas reports that a majority of the Cowboys players want Joseph Randle released.

Randle's off-field issues have become a distraction since getting arrested for shoplifting earlier this month. He was involved in an altercation with Dez Bryant in practice, and coach Jason Garrett held a meeting on Saturday to discuss concerns with the entire team. For now, the Cowboys don't appear to have any plans to release him. Randle remains the primary handcuff for DeMarco Murray.
Sat, Nov 1, 2014 06:02:00 PM

Joseph Randle rushed for 23 yards on three carries in the Cowboys' Week 8 loss to the Redskins.

Randle wasn't used in the pass game and we're not sure he saw the field after losing a fumble inside his own 20-yard line in the first half. Luckily for Randle, Colt McCoy gave the ball right back with a bad interception. Randle remains the primary handcuff for DeMarco Murray owners.
Tue, Oct 28, 2014 12:17:00 AM

Joseph Randle rushed two times for seven yards and caught one pass for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Giants.

As expected, Randle was not punished in any way for embarrassing shoplifting incident. He remains the primary early-down handcuff to DeMarco Murray, who is now on pace for 427 carries after piling up 28 more Sunday. Lance Dunbar (three touches) would also be involved if Murray were to go down.
