Where is McFadden being drafted?

Postby Brianst » Sun Aug 17, 2008 10:19 pm

I want this guy but haven't a clue where I should try to grab him in a 12-man redraft. 3rd or 4th?

He went 38th overall in the only 12-team redraft I've done so far this year.

he went #22 overall in my 10 man PPR league yesterday. Rd 3, Pick 2. I had him targeted for around the 4-5th rd .

I honestly think that person that drafted him reached a bit. I think everybody is expecting AP #'s out of DMF, but come on, it's probably not going to happen.

Here are a few of the RB's that were drafted before and after DMF:

2.6 - L. Johnson
2.7 - R. Brown
3.1 - MJD
3.2 - DMF
3.4 - B. Jacobs
3.6 - L. Maroney
4.3 - J. Lewis

I hope this gives you an idea

This is going to happen in most leagues. Most of the people in the league will have him targeted for the 4th or 5th round, but it only takes 1 of 12 owners to be really high on him and take him in the late 2nd or early 3rd round. All of the RB drafted here have big question marks, so somebody who really believes in McFadden thinks they are getting a steal here...

Honestly, I rarely notice where he's going because I can almost guarantee I'm not going to draft him this year. There are far too many people who think he's going to put up AD numbers when I'm thinking it's going to be closer to Chester Taylor numbers. He's going to have to fall into the 6th round for me to consider him and with the weird hype this guy has been getting (even though I don't think he's the best back on the team!) I don't think I'll even see him in round 4 when I'm up.

Same here, backfield is too crowded and carries will be going through all 3 backs...I this his hype is making his value raise in drafts when I really don't see him playing up to his position.

I've seen him go as high as the 2nd round and as low as the 5th. I have decided I wont own him either because thats just too early.

I like him but 5th is about right. In a backfield with Fargas and Bush he won't get enough touches this year. Some one hit it on the head when they blamed it on AP, same type of situation and he was 4th and 5th rounds in most draft which is about right but then he exploded.

So everybody thinks it will happen again, when really Kevin Smith will likely produce more FFL points this season.

Fargas is the value there. He's going to mix in with DMC on the running game and he'll handle all the 3rd down stuff because he knows the protections.
