2017

2016

After three seasons with limited touches, Dunbar finally got a chance to show what he could do as an elusive pass-catching option in 2015 before suffering yet another knee injury. He's not expected to be ready for Week 1 and will start the season on the PUP list, and there's no guarantee the Cowboys will even be able to find a roster spot for him when he does get healthy given the offseason additions to their RB depth chart, but if Dunbar does come back 100 percent he could be a useful PPR option later in the year, whether in Dallas or with another team.

2015

Entering last season, the Cowboys made it clear that they wanted to get Dunbar more involved in the offense, and with good reason. Before a knee injury ended his 2013 campaign early, the scatback appeared able to turn almost any play into a long gain, showing excellent elusiveness and flashing the sub-4.5 speed he had in college. DeMarco Murray's emergence as an every-down back scrubbed whatever plans the team had to get Dunbar those extra touches, however, and he had few chances to put his skills on display despite being active for every game. That could change in 2015, as Murray moved on to Philadelphia, leaving Dunbar to compete with the unproven Joseph Randle and the injury-prone Darren McFadden. If a committee develops and Dunbar wins a more clearly-defined change-of-pace role that gets him 10-12 touches a game, he could be surprisingly productive.

2014

Dunbar flashed some legitimate potential last year, averaging 5.0 YPC (albeit in a very small sample), but ended up missing the season's last four games due to a torn PCL in his knee that required surgery. Fully recovered, he's slated to serve as DeMarco Murray's backup, but durability questions are haunting Dunbar already, as he's already suffered a hamstring injury and two knee ailments in his two NFL seasons. When healthy, the undersized Dunbar possesses game-changing speed, and Murray himself certainly isn't immune to injury, so he should see some playmaking opportunities this season.

2013

Dunbar saw limited action in 2012, rushing for 75 yards on 21 carries, and he'll compete for the number three running back role behind DeMarco Murray and fifth round pick Joseph Randle.

2012

Depth RB could see more action than expected given the injury-prone nature of the players ahead of him.
