Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
2013
Despite a productive career at Oklahoma State and background as a high school track star, Randle's poor Combine time in the 40 (4.63) caused him to slink into the NFL in 2013 with little fanfare as a fifth-round pick. He became DeMarco Murray's primary backup last season, though, and seemed to blossom at the same time Murray did, more than doubling his YPC and averaging a ridiculous 4.2 yards after contact, most among backs with at least 50 touches. How much of that improvement can be attributed to the Cowboys' all-world offensive line is a valid question, as Randle often seemed to have no one within five yards of him when he hit the line of scrimmage. But he also played faster than his disappointing 40 time, and showed excellent vision and a willingness to fight through tacklers. A shoplifting incident after Week 6, and an offseason altercation with an ex-girlfriend that ended up with no charges filed, raise red flags in the new scandal-averse NFL, but with Murray now in Philadelphia and only injury-prone veteran Darren McFadden as a major offseason addition to the depth chart, Randle should get his chance to prove he deserves a major role in the Dallas backfield.
Randle was lightly utilized in his rookie season, as he didn't see an offensive snap until Week 6, and then only due to an injury to DeMarco Murray. When he did make it into the rotation, he put up awful rushing averages except for a nine-carry, 53-yard, one-touchdown effort against Chicago's league-worst run defense in Week 14. An inconsistent runner who posted a fullback-esque 4.63 40 time at the NFL Combine, he's slated to serve as the third-stringer for the Cowboys this year, but could end up seeing some playing time here and there if the brittle Murray and Lance Dunbar suffer injuries.
After Randle rushed for 38 touchdowns his final two seasons at Oklahoma State, the Cowboys selected him in the fifth round of the 2013 draft. With the departure of Felix Jones, the multi-talented Randle has little competition to be the injury-prone DeMarco Murray's backup. Randle is a slashing runner with deceptive power and good hands, though he lacks Murray's breakaway speed. Randle's also recovering from thumb surgery but should be ready early in training camp.
