Summary

Darren McFadden resurrected his career in his first season in Dallas thanks to a change of scenery and a dominant offensive line. He hadn't run for 1,000 yards in five seasons but ended up becoming Dallas' workhorse and only reliable contributor to an offense that finished 31st in points. Although he only found the end zone three times (more of a byproduct of the offenses' ineptitude), he had a terrific season with 1,417 yards from scrimmage. Unfortunately, the eight year veteran was rewarded for his hard work with a significant step up on competition. Dallas' selection of Ezekiel Elliott with the 4th overall pick assures McFadden will be no better than #2 on the depth chart; but that's only if he can hold off free agent Alfred Morris. (May 21)
