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.
Nov 24 - 1:47 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.
Nov 9 - 4:23 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.
Nov 2 - 5:49 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.
Nov 1 - 6:02 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.
Oct 28 - 12:17 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.
Oct 19 - 8:13 PM

Coach Jason Garrett confirmed Joseph Randle won't be suspended after his shoplifting arrest.

Garrett said the team will fine Randle "significantly," but he'll play Sunday against the Giants. He's rushed for 113 yards on 16 carries as DeMarco Murray's backup.
Oct 15 - 11:46 AM

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys aren't planning to suspend RB Joseph Randle for his shoplifting arrest.

Per reporter Brandon George, Randle will be fined between $10,000-$30,000. The underwear and cologne Randle was trying to lift from his local Dillard's just got a lot more expensive.
Oct 14 - 6:15 PM

Frisco, Texas police arrested Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Monday night on shoplifting charges.

Randle was popped for a Class B Misdemeanor Theft $50-$500, at Dillard's. Police say he was arrested for stealing underwear and cologne. Randle, DeMarco Murray's direct backup on early downs, is making $495,000 this season.
Oct 14 - 10:25 AM

Joseph Randle rushed five times for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win at Seattle.

Establishing himself as DeMarco Murray's early-down handcuff, Randle looked far more impressive than any of the tape he's previously shown. Credit the Cowboys' dominant offensive line. Randle is a must-stash right now given DeMarco's 424-carry pace and injury history.
Oct 12 - 8:13 PM

Joseph Randle rushed twice for four yards in Dallas' Week 5 win over the Texans.

DeMarco Murray handled 37 of the Cowboys' 39 running back touches. Randle has no standalone value as Murray's between-the-tackles handcuff.
Oct 5 - 6:36 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Joseph Randle has "probably" earned more playing time.

"The biggest threat to DeMarco's stats is Joseph Randle," Jones said. "We probably should have at least Randle get a few more snaps." Jones' comments confirm that Randle would get the majority of carries if Murray suffered an injury, but he isn't going to factor into his current workload. Lance Dunbar would remain in his change-of-pace role.
Oct 3 - 8:38 PM

Joseph Randle rushed four times for 22 yards in Week 4 against the Saints.

Randle spelled DeMarco Murray and got some work in mop-up duty. He would likely lead the Cowboys in carries if Murray got injured, with Lance Dunbar playing in a change-of-pace role. Randle's only value is as a fantasy handcuff.
Sep 29 - 1:28 AM

Joseph Randle had two carries for nine yards in Week 3.

Randle played despite being listed as questionable with a concussion. He briefly spelled DeMarco Murray, but saw limited snaps. Randle remains behind Lance Dunbar for No. 2 duties.
