Darren McFadden Fantasy Analysis

  • McFadden PUPed with hamstring injury
    Here's the least surprising news you'll hear all day: Cowboys RB Darren McFadden will open training camp on the PUP list with a hamstring injury.  He missed time early this offseason with hammy trouble but got back on the field for June minicamp.  It looks like he suffered a setback between then and now.  McFadden, of course, has had major durability problems since entering the league.  He's missed 29 games over 7 seasons with a variety of injuries.  We'll see how long the latest sidelines him for.

  • Randle gets love from owner
    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones talked up RB Joseph Randle on Wednesday.  "We have a player (in Randle) that has the potential -- and we based that on, not on what he did at Oklahoma State or how we drafted him, but by literally being a teammate around here for the last two years -- but he has the potential to be the kind of back that would step in there and be your No. 1 back," Jones said. "If he were not here, then I wouldn't feel as good as we go into the season and what might happen."  There's no doubt that Randle is the current favorite to open the season as Dallas' lead back.  The questions are whether he can hold off RBs Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar, and just how many touches he'll get.  Jones later suggested that Randle and McFadden could form a committee.  "That's the kind of back -- if you add those two together -- we had in (DeMarco) Murray," Jones said.

  • McFadden to lead the Cowboys backfield in carries?
    Nick Eatman and Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com both predict that RB Darren McFadden will lead the team in carries this season.  "I think Joseph Randle will get the early nod but something tells me Darren McFadden will end up getting more carries," Eatman explains.  Broaddus writes, "I have put my eggs in the McFadden basket but it wouldn't surprise me one bit to see one of the other backs step up and have the type of camp that makes this front office and coaching staff sit up and take notice."  Both guys are clearly expecting some sort of committee attack (Eatman also mentions Lance Dunbar), but it's interesting that they have McFadden leading the way.  That's in stark contrast to fantasy football drafters, who have pushed Randle into the late 4th round.  McFadden, meanwhile, is going in the 10th.  Our money is still on Randle leading Cowboys RBs in fantasy points this season, but he's going too early in drafts considering how unsettled the situation is.
