Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 17 vs PHI (7 / 28 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

With Ezekiel Elliott off this week, McFadden assumed the lead back role to open the game against the Eagles. McFadden excelled on the edge of the defense, showing a nice stiff arm on an outlet reception for nearly 10 yards and a cutback lane to the perimeter for 24 yards on another. McFadden is a strong receiver and turned a check down pass into 11 yards by breaking a tackle. McFadden has been the primary backup to Elliott since McFadden returned from injury and will be a free agent to track this offseason.

2016 Week 16 vs DET (14 / 49 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

McFadden saw sparse snaps as expected in the first half against Detroit. As Dallas gained a sizeable lead in the second half, McFadden expanded his role with Ezekiel Elliott resting. McFadden, in just his second game back from injury this season, ran well specifically on perimeter runs where his speed was on display. In the pass game, McFadden dropped his lone target as an accurate Dak Prescott pass uncharacteristically clanged off McFadden's hands on a third down in the second quarter.

2016 Week 15 vs TB (3 / 10 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -2 / 0 rec)

McFadden returned from his elbow injury to supplant Alfred Morris as Ezekiel Elliott's primary backup against Tampa Bay. McFadden played sparsely behind the rookie workhorse, but logged two strong runs, one exhibiting a power cut in the game. While nothing more than a handcuff, McFadden offers more situational upside than Morris when giving Elliott the occasional breather down the stretch. McFadden will an upcoming free agent in the offseason.

Our View: The only way McFadden sees significant field time is if Ezekiel Elliott manages to get suspended for pulling that woman's top down, gets hurt or is kidnapped by Eagles fans looking for a decent running back.
