Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Cowboys Darren McFadden declared last week that, "I still don't think the world has seen the best of Darren McFadden.''

The Cowboys certainly hope that's the case. McFadden averaged less than 3.4 yards a carry the past three seasons with Oakland. He rushed for a total of 1,620 yards, which is less than DeMarco Murray accumulated for the Cowboys last season.

So, what do the Cowboys see in McFadden?

"We liked him a lot coming out of college,'' head coach Jason Garrett said. "He came out in '08. That was the same year we drafted Felix Jones. We spent a lot of time with him and on him. I think he was the fourth player taken in that draft. There was a lot to like about him.

"We are confident in the environment we can create for our guys to bring the best out in him.''

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden played in 16 games for the first time in his career last season. He missed 19 games over the previous three seasons and has played in more than 13 games in a season only once in his career. There is no doubt McFadden will be behind a better offensive line this year, but the Cowboys could very well address the position in the draft. There is a lot to settle between now and fantasy draft day in terms of McFadden's possible value.

Scouting Report

Week 17 – Darren McFadden at Denver Broncos

Darren McFadden had one of his stronger performances of 2014 last weekend as Oakland upset Buffalo. McFadden wasn’t terribly active in a reserve role behind Latavius Murray, but averaged six yards a carry and accumulated 54 yards. Nevertheless, with limited work and Denver’s tough run defense on tap, McFadden is off the flex radar.
