Fantasy Analysis
Would you believe that injuries were not the main reason why McFadden had a terrible 2012 season? Run DMC struggled mightily because Oakland's zone-blocking rushing scheme didn't jibe with his "hit-the-hole-and-go" power running style. In 12 games played, McFadden averaged a career-worst 3.3 yards per carry. He also notched just four runs of 20-plus yards after racking up 22 of them during the previous two years. Did McFadden make it through 2012 healthy? Nope. He missed four games because of a bum ankle, which means that McFadden has missed at least three contests due to injuries in each of his five NFL seasons. The Raiders have switched back to a power-blocking scheme, so the dual-threat McFadden, who turns 26 in August, is a bounce-back candidate. The sixth-year pro was very productive while running in power-blocking schemes from 2010 (5.2 yards per carry) through 2011 (5.4 yards per carry). When healthy, very few running backs can duplicate the lanky 6-foot-1, 210-pound McFadden's unique mix of power, sprinter's speed and receiving ability. However, as usual, McFadden a high-risk/high reward player because of his track record of durability problems. If McFadden, who is in a contract year, can play at least 12 full games, he would have top-10 fantasy running back upside.

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