Injury Risk Could Drop McFadden In Fantasy Drafts
OAKLAND (Bleacher Report) – Darren McFadden represents one of the more frustrating fantasy football players to own. If he could stay healthy for an entire 16-game schedule, he could arguably be a top-five selection. However, year after year he finds himself on the sidelines for a handful of games for various reasons.
In his breakout 2010 campaign, when he rushed for 1,157 yards and added 47 receptions for 507 yards (10 total TDs), he played in just 13 games. Just how great could that year have been?
Last season he managed to play in just seven games, amassing 614 yards on the ground and adding 19 catches for 154 yards (five total TDs). Another fine season if he could’ve played all 16 games.
