Description: Former Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner has been signed by the Buffalo Bills.
Insight: Not surprising that the Bills would go out an find a running back to replace C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. For fantasy owners he's just insurance behind Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon and has no fantasy value.

Description: Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner will likely play the understudy role to starter Felix Jones for Thursday's game with Washington.
Insight: Jones is also dealing with a sore knee, so Tanner may see more snaps than normal, but we still think Jones is the only reliable fantasy option in the Dallas backfield this week.

Description: Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner played more snaps than Felix Jones Sunday against the Panthers, according to ESPN.com. Tanner was on the field for 35 of 68 snaps while Jones only played 33.
Insight: Jones received 20 offensive touches to Tanner's 14 in Week 7 with DeMarco Murray out. However, Jones was banged up and will go into Week 8 with knee and neck injuries. We think Tanner is a better fantasy option against the Giants even though Jones is expected to start but neither player is a very attractive play.
