Default Better Pick: Darren McFadden or Demarco Murray?

Taking everything into consideration between these 2 players who would you pick and why?

Darren McFadden has top 5 RB ability and with Michael Bush leaving will be relied upon heavily in that offense. More carries = more production...but a higher risk to get injured?

Let's face it. This guy is an injury risk and with no legit hand cuff for him could really hurt your team if he gets injured. No doubt he's a better RB but do you trust his health?

Murray on the other hand was very very good last season when he got a chance and looks like he can be solid this season. The problem with him is he won't get the touches that McFadden will get because Felix Jones will still be utilized by the Cowboys.

Who do you go with with your 2nd/3rd round pick? The top 10 potential RB who will stay healthy and lose some touches/TDs to his back-up or the top-5 potential RB with a work load that will very likely lead him to another injury plagued season?

Both could be seen as injury probe right now...

One thing that we haven't seen yet from Murray is his receiving which is a HUGE part of his game. If Dallas uses him correctly he could be the top RB in the league for catches and receiving stats.

If?


Ever heard of Ray Rice? Shady McCoy?


Murray is nice, I hope I can get good value taking him fantasy but cut out the hyperbole B.S. He has a ways to go before he's the 'top' anything. F uck your stats too.


I say snag Murray, better o line (altho C is an issue) and better downfield threats + a playmaker at QB will keep defenses honest

Default Re: Better Pick: Darren McFadden or Demarco Murray?

I'm just saying that he is the type of RB that is fully capable of leading in receiving if he is in an offense that allows for that...

Murray is a good enough receiver to actually line up out wide...and I'm sure he will at times this year...



last year, Garrett didn't really mess with that though...so who knows to what degree he will be catching...

Odds of McFadden going all 16 games is like 20%

Odds of Murray going all 16 games is like 50%


My guesstimations

I think that's the wrong way to look at it though. If you look at it as their chance to play all 16 games that could mean alot. McFadden could miss 1 game and thats not playing all 16 while Murray could miss 5.

I think the better way to look at it would be how many games you expect them to miss. Which predicting injuries is pointless but if you look at the average games missed since both were drafted I guess that could give you a better feel.

You'd be stupid not to go with McFadden at this point in time, especially with Bush gone.

Obviously Murray >>≥>>>> McFadden

McFadden won't be the starting RB in Dallas... He is done, injuries have taken their toll, he no longer had his elite speed, it's over.

He will be a 3rd down receiving back in Dallas, maybe 8 touches a game.

Honestly he making pennies, not out of the question he doesn't even make the team.



Jerry would rather have Murray... He just became too expensive

McFadden has been dissapointing his whole career. I doubt all of a sudden he becomes a lethal back. Murray was great, McFadden is servicable.
