Quick fantasy outlook: For five years now we've wrestled with how to weigh Darren McFadden's potential greatness vs. his propensity to fall victim to injury. He's missed 23 games over five seasons in the league and in that respect 2012 was no different than any other year in his career. In terms of productivity, however, 2012 was a different animal all together. McFadden's yards per carry dipped to 3.3, his yards per reception fell to 6.1, and he scored only 3 touchdowns. Those numbers have been blamed on a zone running scheme that was never built around McFadden't skills, but it's easy to question if he has already done the most he'll ever do in fantasy football. McFadden has finished as a RB2 or better only once in his NFL career, and that was in 2010. Yes, he has the speed and ability to put together amazing runs, but the idea that he's going to do so on this offense for 16 consecutive games seems far fetched at best.
