2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jun-26-2013 by Shawn Larabee

A change in offensive coordinator will mercifully move McFadden away from the zone blocking scheme that hamstrung his production in 2012. After averaging just under 59 yards per game in Greg Knapp's scheme, he'll be looking forward to more north-south running under new OC Greg Olson. His numbers will improve, but he likely won't make the leap to elite status until Oakland shores up its offensive line.

3.07 The Huddle - When healthy, McFadden is a top-5 talent; of course, he's never managed to stay healthy, which is why he's still on the board here. But with running backs being picked clean and a plethora of second-tier WRs still available, he's an acceptable risk.

4.01 Bruno Boys - I regretted this pick immediately after making it. I was already strong at running back and the format dictates that it?s preferable to play WRs at the flex positions. The problem is that I really like McFadden this season and I quite honestly don?t want others to have him. With the zone blocking system abolished and the power running scheme reinstalled, McFadden should flirt with elite numbers again for as many games as he can stay on the field. I think what really makes him valuable in ppr formats is that if he ever finishes a season, DMC?s a lock for 50+ receptions. Looking back, the pick here was Victor Cruz, the last of the really elite young PPR receivers.
