Summary

Running Back Rank: #36All Players: #115
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.

Notes

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones expressed confidence in the team's overall run game Thursday, May 14. "You say the entire running game, and that would be including our tight ends, including our fullback - the entire game - we're better," Jones said. The Cowboys have yet to determine roles for their running backs. As it stands, RB Darren McFadden is at the top of the depth chart, with RBs Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams in the mix.

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden is ready to show the world that he's better than what he showed in the last couple of seasons with the Oakland Raiders, and he's confident that he'll produce more behind a great offensive line in Dallas. 'I just want to go out there and continue to show people what I can do,' McFadden said. 'I still don't think the world has seen the best of Darren McFadden.'

Dallas Cowboys RBs Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar and Joseph Randle figure to see a good amount of work in 2015. Head coach Jason Garrett said the team would like to continue their emphasis on inside running after losing RB DeMarco Murray to the Philadelphia Eagles. 'Absolutely,' Garrett said. 'It has to be replaced. It was a good style of football for us to play. We will try to continue to do that.'

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden's two-year contract includes per-game bonuses each year that will give him incentive to stay healthy or fight through injuries to be on the field. In 2015, McFadden can receive a $9,375 per-game bonus. If he plays all 16 games in 2015, McFadden would receive $150,000 from the Cowboys. In 2016, McFadden can receive a $31,250 per-game bonus.

Free-agent RB Darren McFadden agreed to a two-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys Friday, March 13. The deal is pending a physical.
Fantasy Impact: At this point, he is the starter for the Cowboys but likely will play a backup role for the coming season. Stay tuned.

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Darren McFadden is not expected to be re-signed this offseason. The Raiders will be looking for competition for RB Latavius Murray.
Source: USA TODAY Fantasy Sports
Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray had 112 yards and two touchdowns on just four carries against the Kansas City Chiefs, and the team is excited about what he can provide them down the stretch. "I love the way Latavius runs the football," interim head coach Tony Sparano said. "I like what I've seen, but I've seen (14) carries. I want to see more of them. I'm curious, too. I'm curious just like the fans are curious." Despite Sparano's curiosity, he stated that Murray won't immediately be a workhorse back in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers. It's likely that RBs Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew will see significant touches this weekend, but Murray will likely have an increased workload than what he's seen in the past.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden carried the ball on 14 of the team's 20 rush attempts in Week 6, and interim coach Tony Sparano said he wants to emphasize the run going forward.
