Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Darren McFadden Oak - RB 2010 vs. Denver 196 total yards, 4 TDs For a brief moment in time, many, many hamstring pulls ago, Run-DMC was considered an elite fantasy running back, thanks to efforts like that in Week 7 of ’10 versus Denver.

His huge effort against the Broncos was part of a season in which McFadden would finish second to only Arian Foster in fantasy points per game among running backs.
