  • Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Eight touches in Sunday's win

    Dowdle carried the ball seven times for 26 yards and caught his only target for 17 yards in Sunday's 30-10 win over the Jets.

    Tony Pollard saw 32 touches as the Cowboys' lead back and produced 109 yards from scrimmage, but Dowdle, Deuce Vaughn and KaVontae Turpin combined for 17 touches between them as Dallas romped to another big victory. As long as the team keeps blowing away opponents -- something that could easily happen again Week 3 against the winless Cardinals -- there will be opportunities for the backup options at RB to poach a little fantasy value, but it would take an injury to Pollard to make Dowdle a viable play in most formats.

  • Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Late usage in rout

    Dowdle carried the ball six times for 24 yards in Sunday's 40-0 win over the Giants.

    The Cowboys' defense and special teams units took control of the game early before Tony Pollard punched in two short TDs, so Dowdle saw most of his action in what was effectively garbage time. Dowdle was more productive than rookie Deuce Vaughn on the same numbers of touches, however. With Pollard locked into the top spot on the backfield depth chart, there may not be many opportunities left over for any other backs, but Dowdle at least seems to be the clear No. 2 option.

  • Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Part of initial roster

    Dowdle is a part of the Cowboys' initial 53-man roster following roster cuts Tuesday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Behind Tony Pollard, the situation in Dallas' backfield has crystallized somewhat, with Dowdle and Deuce Vaughn, plus fullback Hunter Luepke, making the team over Malik Davis. With Ronald Jones suspended for the first two games of the campaign, Dowdle will be among the options to spell Pollard in the early going. In three preseason games, Dowdle performed well to the tune of 14 carries for 59 yards and five catches on six targets for 42 yards and one touchdown.

  • Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Records receiving TD

    Dowdle rushed eight times for 38 yards and brought in two of three targets for nine yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' 22-14 preseason loss to the Seahawks on Saturday night. He also returned one kickoff for 23 yards.

    Dowdle tied with Malik Davis for the team lead in carries and set the pace in rushing yards. The 25-year-old, who was the first Dallas running back to log a touch Saturday, could be making up ground on Davis for a roster spot after two solid exhibition efforts. He should have a final chance to make a case for himself in next Saturday night's home preseason finale against the Raiders.
