It really is a coin toss. As a change of pace back, what can you expect? 50-70 yards and a TD? I would expect at least 70 yards and a TD from McFadden.
I would go with the #1 RB even for a below average team, over a #2 RB for a above average team. Hope this helps.
DMac has been named the starter... but like you said - tough defense. That said, as HORRIBLY EMBARRASSING TO THE UNIVERSE
as the Raiders are, they are actually a very good running team with a very good run-blocking offensive line.
I'm leaning toward DMac, but the Bucs are SO BAD, and I think the Cowboys are going to smarten up this year and become the running team they SHOULD have been all this time.
I dunno. I guess I still have a lot of time to wring my hands about it, LOL.
