Name: Darren McFadden
Age/Current Team: 26/The Oakland Raiders
Current Contract (via Rotoworld): 2013: $5,856,250, 2014: Free Agent
2013 Rushing Numbers:  267 yards on 69 attempts, 3.9 ypc, 2 touchdowns
2013 Receiving Numbers:  10 receptions off 13 targets for 77 yards

Analysis: Trading for a running back with a greater injury history than Murray makes no sense to me. But McFadden’s name is floating around the blog-o-sphere. It’s mainly due to him being an alum of Arkansas, which Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones likes. Also, Dallas was apparently high on him in the 2008 draft. They opted to stay with there late round picks and eventually drafted McFadden’s back-up, Felix Jones. Still DMC’s salary and his injury-prone status makes no sense (or cents) for Dallas.
