2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
A stellar college career at the University of Arkansas earned McFadden the number four overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft and a starting role with the Oakland Raiders. Seven injury plagued and under-productive seasons later, McFadden looks to restart a once promising career now as a member of the Cowboys. He enters 2015 training camp behind third-year back Joseph Randle on the depth chart, but will likely see playing time as a change-of-pace back in an offense built around the offensive line and ground game. Health has always been a problem for McFadden, who has managed to play a full 16-game season just once in his seven-year career. When he did make the field, he struggled in his last three seasons with the Raiders, managing a paltry 3.3 yards per carry with just nine touchdowns in 38 games. Now as a member of the Cowboys, McFadden has without a doubt the best supporting cast of his career, and an offensive line that will provide the best opportunity for him to return to his career high of 5.4 yards per carry in 2011. McFadden should be viewed as a high risk/high reward pick in drafts this season, with a high ceiling and complete bust floor.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Tony Romo out for the season
After re-fracturing collarbone
By: John Canario | Fri Nov 27, 4:00 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday that quarterback Tony Romo’s season is done after he fractured his left collarbone for the second time this season. During a radio interview on KRLD-FM radio in Dallas, Jones said that Romo suffered a hairline fracture that will not require surgery. The injury, suffered late in the third quarter of Thursday’s 33-14 loss to the Carolina Panthers, will sideline the 35-year-old Romo for the remaining five games of the regular season. Romo, who played in just two complete games this season, threw five touchdowns and seven interceptions in four games. After returning from the original broken collarbone — which occurred at Philadelphia in Week 2 — Romo threw a combined five interceptions against the Miami Dolphins and Panthers. (USA Today)

FFToday's Take: With Matt Cassel likely under center for the rest of the season, it's hard to get too excited about the fantasy outlook for players like Terrance Williams and Jason Witten. Darren McFadden and Dez Bryant are currently the only Cowboys' players worth owning for fantasy purposes.


Injury McFadden added to injury report on Thursday
Strained groin
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 19, 5:55 pm

Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys added starter Darren McFadden to the club's official injury/practice report Thursday. McFadden fully participated in practice Wednesday but was limited Thursday because of a strained groin. McFadden, who has a long history of injuries that derailed his career in Oakland after he was the fourth overall pick, has been healthy for the most part all season. But over the last four games, McFadden has averaged 23.3 carries as he's taken over the starter role following Dallas' release of Joseph Randle. (Dallas Morning News)

FFToday's Take: The Cowboys have said Thursday's absence was in an effort to "keep him fresh", but McFadden is notorious for getting hurt. Typically, it has been his hamstrings that have given him the most problems. Friday's practice report will be important. Rod Smith is likely the first man up if he cannot go, but newly-acquired Robert Turbin could also figure into the mix.


Injury Cowboys expected to sign Robert Turbin
Christine Michael released earlier this week

Cowboys are signing RB Robert Turbin, recently cut by Browns. He's third former Seahawks RB signed w Christine Michael, Rod Smith (Todd Archer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Cowboys released Christine Michael earlier this week and currently have Rod Smith and Trey Williams behind starter Darren McFadden. Turbin will likely step into the No.2 role behind McFadden in due time.
