Rico Dowdle Staying With Cowboys

Monday, March 18, 6:29 PM

The Dallas Cowboys are re-signing running back Rico Dowdle to an undisclosed deal on Monday. With Tony Pollard moving to the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency, Dowdle is now No. 1 on the Cowboys' RB depth chart, for now. The 25-year-old former undrafted free agent out of South Carolina entered the league in 2020 with the Cowboys and has just 96 carries for 385 yards and two rushing touchdowns in his three NFL seasons, adding 17 receptions (22 targets) for 144 yards and two more touchdowns through the air. Eighty nine of his career carries came in 2023, when he rushed for 361 yards and two TDs in 16 regular-season contests. Depending on what Dallas does at the position in the upcoming NFL draft, Dowdle could see a substantial role increase in his fourth NFL campaign.

Tony Jones Jr. News

Tony Jones Jr. Elevated To Active Roster

Saturday, November 18, 9:11 PM

Arizona Cardinals running back Tony Jones Jr. has been elevated to the active roster ahead of the Week 11 matchup against the Houston Texans. The Cardinals are without Emari Demercado (toe), so Jones has been added to the roster as insurance. However, Jones is unlikely to have a big role in the offense with James Conner back in the picture. This season, Jones has 85 rushing yards on 23 attempts with two touchdowns in six games. He could see a few snaps on Sunday, but it probably won't be enough to warrant streaming Jones in any fantasy formats.
