Summary

Running Back Rank: #40All Players: #138
McFadden had another season to forget. He got his chances to emerge as the lead back for the Raiders but did very little with the work. The good news for McFadden was he finally made it through the season healthy but his season high in rushing yards was 80, topping 60-rushing yards just once all year. McFadden had more than 700 total yards but ran for just over 500 yards, averaging only 3.5 yards per carry. McFadden is running out of time to make a big impact in the NFL but gets a chance to do so, signing with the Cowboys this offseason. He turns 28 right before the start of the season and done little with his chances in recent years. He seems best suited as a backup or change-of-pace back at this stage of his career, a role he should serve with the Cowboys. When he is on his game, McFadden is a pretty complete back. He catches the ball well, can churn out the tough yards and has elite speed to make the big play every time he touches the ball. He is a game changer. He has a hard time staying healthy, though, and struggles with consistency.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
McFadden has all sorts of question marks but sees a bump in value, running behind one of the best offensive lines in football. He could see a nice bump in production, making him a No. 3 back for fantasy teams. He could get around 900 total yards and five touchdowns.

comments about Darren McFadden

Notes

Dallas Cowboys RBs Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden are both unlikely to play in the team's preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 3, and vice president Stephen Jones stopped short of saying the Cowboys were set at the running back position heading into the regular season. Jones didn't rule out Dallas signing a young running back to add to the mix. General manager Jerry Jones, however, is not surprised that there hasn't been separation between Randle and McFadden this preseason.

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle could have 10-15 carries per game with RB Darren McFadden slightly below that, in the opinion of beat writer Drew Davison

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle will share reps with RB Darren McFadden and RB Lance Dunbar because the Cowboys 'intend to take a committee approach,' according to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Fantasy Impact: This running back spot is looking shakier and shakier for fantasy teams every day. Not good.

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (neck, shoulder) said he expects to participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26, after being limited Tuesday, Aug. 25, because of neck and shoulder soreness. McFadden believes he will be able to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle had seven carries for 30 yards in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, against the San Francisco 49ers, while RB Darren McFadden had three totes for just four yards. RB Lance Dunbar didn't have a run from scrimmage, and managed just two grabs for three yards. 'We didn't run the ball very well,' head coach Jason Garrett said. 'Obviously we were trying to control the line of scrimmage and didn't do a very good job of that.' The team was also playing without three starters along the offensive line, so that needs to be taken into account.

Fantasy Impact: McFadden wasn't impressive, which hurts his chances to grab the starting role in Dallas.

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden hinted that the Cowboys will use a running-back-by-committee approach this season, mainly between he and RB Joseph Randle. 'You know the competitor in me definitely wants to be the No. 1 guy that goes out there. But at the same time, it's like, man, you know we're going to split carries. So whoever goes out there or goes out there second -- I just know whenever I do get a chance to get the ball in my hands, I'm going to go out there and go 110%,' McFadden said.
