If you're looking for a guy who'll start for six weeks and give you top-12 performances most of the time, here's your guy. Even if you don't draft Ezekiel Elliott, you can snag McFadden and trade him to the Elliott owner after they start their season 0-2 or something like that. In all reality, McFadden makes a solid pick in the 8th round.

Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris to split regular season carries?

Dallas Cowboys beat writer Todd Archer believes the team could use a by-committee approach to their ground attack while Ezekiel Elliott serves out his six game ban to open the 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact

The Cowboys' backfield is in question in the wake of Elliott's suspension. If the ban is upheld -- there is a chance this could be Deflategate 2.0 and he plays a full 16-game slate -- Archer expects the team to split the running back workload between Alfred Morris and presumed starter Daren McFadden. However, McFadden is the Dallas RB I'm targeting in upcoming fantasy drafts as he is the expected handcuff for the troubled Elliott. Expect to reach for McFadden in the early double-digit rounds.
