Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Darren McFadden was depth for most fantasy owners heading into 2017, but with the suspension of Ezekiel Elliot, McFadden will be a viable option for six weeks. McFadden does have a track record and has had success in the NFL. With the Cowboys' strong offensive line, McFadden should put up RB1 numbers for the short term.

Fantasy Upside

We already mentioned McFadden is a six-week project. But another issue is he might end splitting those carries with Alfred Morris. After the six weeks, McFadden won't have much value except in deep leagues.

2017 Bottom Line

You aren't going to select McFadden early in your draft for just six weeks of production, but if you can get him around the eighth round, that would carry some value. The real coup would be to somehow get both McFadden and Elliot. McFadden will be an RB1 temporarily so the pick will pay dividends.
