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 gets 10 touches against Rams

Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden received nine carries for 59 yards while adding one reception for four yards in Saturday night's preseason win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Impact

McFadden started and totaled 63 yards on 10 touches Saturday night against the Colts. However, since Alfred Morris also played well, he ran for 49 yards on nine carries, he could push McFadden for the starting job while Ezekiel Elliott serves his six-game ban to open the upcoming regular season. From a fantasy perspective, McFadden will likely emerge as the RB1 over Morris. He is more versatile and is a greater asset in the passing game, which bodes well for his fantasy value. Due to the extensive time Elliott will be out, McFadden is worth reaching for in upcoming fantasy drafts as early as the ninth round, while Morris is currently going undrafted.
