Dallas Cowboys RB Rico Dowdle rushed four times for 21 yards and caught all three of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Dowdle is well behind Tony Pollard in snaps and touches, but the South Carolina product appears to clear backup in Dallas. While Pollard has been highly productive to this point, he already has 74 touches through three games (24.7 average) after handling a career-high 232 in 16 outings in 2022 (14.5). If Pollard is forced to miss time this season, Dowdle would almost certainly be a must-start in most fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Rico Dowdle ran seven times for 26 yards and added a 17-yard reception on his only target in Week 2 against the New York Jets.

Dallas Cowboys RB Rico Dowdle carried the ball six times for 24 yards in Week 1 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Just in case you got caught up in Deuce Vaughn's impressive preseason, Sunday night showed that Dowdle, not Vaughn, is the primary backup to Tony Pollard. Yes, both player had six carries, but all of Vaughn's touches came with Cooper Rush at QB and the team up 40 points. If you own Pollard, Dowdle should be the preferred handcuff.
