Rico Dowdle (Dallas Cowboys)

Rico Dowdle was probably a player that was picked up off the waiver wire recently in fantasy football leagues. However, if he is still available this would be a great running back to add to your bench.

Tony Pollard has not had the season many fantasy football managers expected being the lead running back for the Dallas Cowboys. The workload has certainly been there but he has not been able to find the end zone since Week 1.

This past week, the backfield was almost equally split in terms of carries with Pollard getting 15 for 55 yards while Dowdle had 12 for 79 yards and had a rushing touchdown. This was the most carries Dowdle has had this season but was probably due to the game being a blowout.

However, it did show that Dowdle can be productive with a bigger role and it is worth stashing Dowdle on the bench to see if that trend continues.
