Keep tabs on the Cowboys backfield this week

It looks like Cowboys RBs Marion Barber, Tashard Choice and Felix Jones will all be active today against the Falcons. Barber will start, but fantasy owners need to monitor how coordinator Jason Garrett uses Choice and Jones.

While Jones was ahead of Choice on the depth chart to start the season, his continued problems staying healthy could now make him third in the backfield rotation. The Cowboys might also limit Jones a bit in his return from an injured knee.

I’d go ahead and start Barber, whose injured quadriceps had an extra week to heal. I’d also use Choice as a flex starter. Jones, on the other hand, should be reserved unless you’re hurting at running back.
