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. But his three missed games that season would foreshadow the future, as he quickly became a health risk punchline in fantasy circles by missing an average of over six games per season from ’11 to ’13.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
