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.
