Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle makes an intriguing play this week against the Philadelphia Eagles while teammate DeMarco Murray ( MCL sprain) sits out with an injury. Randle scored a touchdown in the game but only averaged 1.5 yards per carry.
Fantasy impact: The Philadelphia Eagles defense is considered average against the run and they're one of the worst teams in the league against the pass. It remains to be seen how much quarterback Tony Romo will use Randle, especially because Eagles quarterback Nick Foles looked impressive last week and threw three touchdown passes against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
A shootout between Foles and Cowboys gun slinger Tony Romo could render the Cowboys running game useless, and given that the Washington Redskins aren't that good against the run either, 1.5 yards per carry is not exactly something to get excited about for Randle owners.
It remains to be seen how well Randle will play, but besides a blowout, he probably will see at least 20 touches against the Eagles, which makes him a fantasy starter for this week, albeit with a low ceiling.
