Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Dallas has completely taken the reigns off of McFadden as they no longer seem concerned with limiting his carries. He should be in for another very heavy workload but the matchup against Carolina puts a huge damper on everything. Given his volume, he still retains value as a touchdown can happen anywhere but this is clearly the least likely game of DMC going off that we've seen yet this season.
Rushing: 60 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 21 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
McFadden hasn't been good over the last three seasons, missing 10 games, averaging just 3.3 yards per carry and scoring a total of 10 touchdowns. He did catch 96 passes over that span. If there's any reason for hope with McFadden, it's that he signed with the Cowboys and will be running behind the best run blocking offensive line in the NFL. There's a chance McFadden could see a resurgence playing in Dallas but it's asking a lot given his recent track record. Expect McFadden to be part of a committee rather than a full-time replacement to DeMarco Murray.

Rushing: 1275 Yards, 10 TD.
Receiving: 35 Receptions, 325 Yards, 4 TD.

Cowgirls deserve to lose
Ok, why on gods green earth would you take the ball out of your best players hands? Murray has been the focal point of your offfense getting at least 4 catches a game and running for about 100 yards, yet you put in fragile felix. WHY? HE ...
