Description: Buffalo running back Tashard Choice is currently the healthiest back on the Bills' roster.
Insight: If C.J. Spiller or Fred Jackson, or both, aren't ready to go Thursday, Choice could be a viable option. Fantasy owners desperate for running back help should check back when inactives are announced for the Bills-Browns game.

Description: Buffalo halfback Tashard Choice carried the ball 20 times for 91 yards Sunday in a win over Cleveland.
Insight: Choice took over for C.J. Spiller after he went down with an injured shoulder early in the first half. Fred Jackson should be coming back soon so Choice's fantasy shelf life probably won't last more than a couple of weeks.

Description: Bills running back Tashard Choice should move into the backup role for the next few weeks while Fred Jackson is sidelined with a knee injury.
Insight: Choice, at 210 lbs, is bigger than C.J. Spiller and could end up being the team's goal line option which would significantly increase his fantasy value.

Description: Redskins waived RB Tashard Choice
Insight: The Redskins instead added Evan Royster from the practice squad. Choice is unlikely to draw much interest on the open market.

Description: In a somewhat surprising move, considering Felix Jones isn't healthy, the Dallas Cowboys have elected to waive RB Tashard Choice... who was listed as questionable coming into Week 8. SOURCE: ESPN DALLAS
Insight: Choice is earning a $600,000 base salary this season, which is the final year of his four-year, $2.144 million rookie contract. Any team that claims Choice off waivers will be on the hook for $317,647 in base salary for the remaining nine weeks of the regular season. He just couldn't get over his injury issues. He was bumped down to fourth string behind Phillip Tanner and his production has just fallen off. DeMarco Murray could have the backfield all to himself this week, with Tanner coming into spell him. Depending on how things go, the Cowboys might need to add another back off waivers.

Description: Choice played with a broken bone in one of his hands for the final month of the season, according to Josh Ellis of team's official website.
Insight: There was no particular issue with Choice's performance at any point this season, just his usage level. Jason Garrett has been said to not be a fan, whether it's personal or simply ability-driven. Fantasy players would love to see Choice freed by a trade this offseason. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: The Cowboys may decide to part ways with RB Tashard Choice this offseason. SOURCE: DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Insight: Choice didn't exactly endear himself with the coaching staff after averaging a paltry 3.7 ypc while he subbed for Marion Barber. There is also belief that HC Jason Garrett "is not enamored with him and would not resist a trade." We would be utterly stupefied if the Cowboys opted on keeping Barber and letting Choice go. At least with Choice you get more upside, but Jerry Jones may decide he wants to get compensation before Choice hits free agency in 2012.

Description: Choice had three carries for 16 yards along with three catches for 16 yards against Arizona on Saturday night.
Insight: Marion Barber (calf) being active limited Choice's role once again. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: After Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said RB Tashard Choice has earned an expanded role, interim coach Jason Garrett has expressed the same opinion. SOURCE: SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
Insight: Choice's 100 rushing yards against the Colts were only two yards less than what Marion Barber was able to pull off in the three games prior. It looks like Choice will get another shot this week against the Eagles, with Barber still receiving treatment for his injured calf. If Choice looks good again, the Cowboys will look like idiots if they go back on their word. With the Redskins and Cardinals in Weeks 15 and 16, Choice could help push owners to a championship this year.

Description: Choice had 19 carries for 100 yards and a touchdown against the Colts on Sunday.
Insight: Choice should be in line for a significant role down the stretch, and should be a popular pick up in fantasy leagues this week. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/1/2010 2:05:00 PM
Description: ESPN Dallas.com reports Choice practiced on Wednesday as if he'll be a bigger part of the Cowboys' offense in Week 13.
Insight: With Marion Barber (calf) out for Sunday against the Colts, Choice should take over as Dallas' short-yardage and goal line back. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: If Cowboys RB Marion Barber (calf) is unable to play this weekend against the Colts, RB Tashard Choice could get some opportunities on first and second down. SOURCE: FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM
Insight: Felix Jones will start and lead, but there's no reason to think Choice can't rack up double-digit fantasy points against the Colts Defense, who are 28th in the league in fantasy points given up to running backs (28.0) per game. Choice is an RB2/Flex tweener this week.
 
11/30/2010 2:03:00 PM
Description: With Marion Barber (calf) expected to be out at least a couple games, Choice should be in line for an increased workload.
Insight: Choice has just 14 carries and nine receptions all season, but did score a touchdown after Barber left the game on Thanksgiving Day and could be worth a shot in deeper leagues as he should take over Barber's role as Dallas' short-yardage and goal line back. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: There is a chance that Cowboys RB Tashard Choice could see a snap increase against the Giants. SOURCE: FOX SPORTS
Insight: Don't get excited. Choice will be used more primarily because he excels at picking up the blitz, which the Giants figure to be using a lot today. Keep Choice on the bench.

Description: After the bad loss to the Packers, Cowboys RB Tashard Choice was reportedly near tears when discussing his play and his role on the team. SOURCE: DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Insight: "I'm at a loss for words. I was excited to play the game but it didn't go like that. We didn't play our game offensively like we were supposed to. It's tough." Choice got just three carries late when the game was significantly out of reach. Owner Jerry Jones talked about change coming. One of the first things he should do is dump Marion Barber and give Choice a much bigger role in 2011.
 
11/4/2010 6:03:00 PM
Description: ESPN Dallas.com reports Choice expects to be part of the Cowboys' backfield rotation this week against the Packers for the first time since September..
Insight: Choice can be added in deeper leagues, especially if you own Felix Jones or Marion Barber. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/16/2010 2:02:00 PM
Description: Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas.com reports Choice will not be traded.
Insight: Green Bay may be in the market for a running back with Ryan Grant out for the season, but it does not appear Choice is going anywhere. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: According to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, RB Tashard Choice is "one of the top backs in the league." SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Take it with a grain of salt since it's straight from Jerrah's mouth, but there is a little bit of truth to it. Choice does produce when given the chance, but he won't see much time as the third-string back unless there is an injury.
 
8/9/2010 11:13:00 AM
Description: Choice had seven carries for 41 yards on Sunday night against Cincinnati.
Insight: Choice is in line to be the Cowboys' No. 3 running back, but could get a chance to play a lot if Marion Barber or Felix Jones can't stay healthy. (Rapid Draft.com)
