Drafted as a fill-in running back for the first few games of the season, McFadden will be relegated to a bench role in Week 1, after Ezekiel Elliott was declared active for Week 1. Obviously, hold McFadden if you own him, as Elliott is still facing a six-game suspension that could start in Week 2. For this game, however, there's no way fantasy owners can possibly start McFadden with Elliott active. Not only is it an incredibly tough matchup (the Giants allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs in 2016), but with McFadden potentially carrying a huge workload beginning next week, the Cowboys aren't going to want to risk him getting hurt here. Absent being completely decimated at running back, avoid McFadden at all costs this week.

Darren McFadden solid in limited snaps in win

Darren McFadden had two rushes for 21 yards in the Cowboys 24-20 win over the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Darren McFadden was outshined by Ezekiel Elliott, and that was the reason for the limitation of snaps. McFadden could be a waiver wire pickup for the weeks for Elliott's suspension, whenever that might be.
