Ummmm.... that's only a difference of twenty yards, you realize.

you sure? he said over 30 yards. so we can assume 31 minimum
31*16=496

man those 4 yards are tough. almost impossible he gets it, but 496 is minimum!

Not necessarliy! What if he only plays in 5 games? 31*5= 155. He would still average ove 30 yards/gm.

I'm going to guess about 1,079 yards rushing with 7 scores and 395 yards receiving with 2 scores. Think his numbers would be much better if he was the only game in town, but I believe that Bush will probably be heard from as well. That said, I can see McFadden having a much better year than my projections if their offense can step up. I just wouldn't bet too much on that happening. :-o

I've projected him out for 215 carries for 990 yards (4.6 ypc) and another 45 receptions for 405 yards (9 yards per reception which is pretty high) and about 8 total TDs. Solid RB2, great RB3 at the moment in my eyes.

As far as 500+ receiving yards go...it's unlikely in my eyes. It's easy to think that 30 yards receiving per game is easy to get...doesn't sound like that much but if it really was that easy for some of the great receiving backs, then why do so few do it on a regular basis? LT, who is EASILY one of the best receiving backs in the league has only done it 2 times in his entire career despite being above 50 receptions in every single season in the league. The very elite pass catching backs have been able to do it, sometimes even a few seasons but it doesn't happen frequently enough to consider that a "minimum" for a guy like McFadden who hasn't proven to do it yet.

there are a few things going against dmc that i worry about

oakland will be down
jones likes the vertical game
bush is bound to sneak in
jamarcus really doesn't make the greatest decisions and is said to not really have a passion for fb (possibly)

preseason stats couldnt be more irrelevant... Mike Bush is like J-Stew last year, hes talented yes but the guy infront of him is waaaay more versatile and will ultimately capitalize on his carries and 'run away' (no pun intended) with the job. just like last season with DWill, im glad Bush is dropping DMCs ADP... come to think of it, i think im feeling a deja vu... :-?

but please... keep the doubt alive and the hype train in the station please!

I don't think the hype train has even been built nor the tracks laid down, let alone left the station.

I just grabbed him as a RB3 in my draft last night (although this league has a relatively strange starting lineup) and couldn't be happier about it.

;-D
