2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jun-21-2015 by Shawn Childs

Over a 17-game stretch from the start of 2010 until Week 4 in 2011, McFadden was one of the best backs in the game. He ran for 1,605 yards on 298 carries, caught 62 passes for 639 yards and scored 13 total TDs. He averaged 137 yards and 21.96 Fantasy points per game. Unfortunately, over the past three years, Darren has averaged only 3.34 YPC over 485 carries and just 6.1 yards per catch. I'd love to put the blame on the Oakland Raiders' offensive line, but McFadden's length of failure is too long. McFadden will open the season at age 28. He's been a talent receiver but has never been an asset in pass protection. He has high injury risk and has been great for only short periods of time during his seven-year career. I won't dismiss the former first-rounder, but I won't overpay for his poor resume.

11.10 Mr. Landry - Ug. This could be the year he stays healthy. Yes, that's been said for the last 6 years, but you've got to have hope. He's a talent and this could pay off. Maybe.
