The only one making Felix a "niche player" or a role player is Jason Garrett. You cannot do any better with the amount of carries he's seen over his short career. CJ wouldnt even have done any better, more than likely. The guy averaged 6 yards per carry in two years. That's insane. And he played outstanding when Barber went down. How soon people forget that Felix absolutely manhandled the Eagles in his back to back starts against them last year. And one of those games was a playoff game. Felix should have been starting from game one this season. He more than earned that last year, imo. He's the best running back on the team, and it's not even close. He has given Dallas fans no reason to sour on him.
I'm sorry...but to hate on the guy, when he isnt even seeing the ball at all, isnt too bright. Not trying to hate...but really, that makes absolutely zero sense.
Not trying to sound too mean here, DPL...I like you, bud. It's just aggravating that fans are so quick to give up on players and in this case, there is no substance to even start to hate on the guy. Let's actually see him carry the ball more than 7 times per game, before everyone starts jumping off and burning the bandwagon. As has always been the case, our use of Jones, has been downright awful.
