McFadden rushed for 92 yards on 12 carries, and hauled in 5-of-8 targets for 53 yards Sunday against the Redskins. McFadden closed the season with his fourth straight rushing performance over 90 yards, but his inability to score over that span was reflective of his season-long struggle to get into the end zone. The 28-year-old running back finishes 2015 with just three touchdowns despite topping 1000 rushing yards for just the second time in his eight-year career.
McFadden ran for 99 yards in 19 carries and lost a yard in catching his only target in Sunday's loss to the Bills. The 28-year-old ran well despite another anemic performance by the Dallas offense, and he came within a yard of his sixth 100-yard performance of the season. McFadden also now sits just three yards shy of the 1,000-yard mark for the campaign, as he looks to stake his claim as the go-to back heading into 2016. McFadden will look to cap off his fine season versus the Redskins next week.
McFadden carried 16 times for 100 yards in Saturday night's 19-16 loss to the Jets. McFadden has hit the 100-yard rushing mark two straight games. The Cowboys made a switch at quarterback to the inexperienced Kellen Moore. That inexperience could lead to a heavier reliance on the running game and McFadden next week at Buffalo.
McFadden ran for 111 yards on just nine carries in Sunday's 28-7 loss at Green Bay. He failed to catch his lone target. With just 64 yards on 24 totes over the previous two games, McFadden seemed to be wearing down a bit, after a heavy workload between Weeks 7-11, when he carried the ball a total of 122 times. However, he ripped off runs of 50 and 45 yards Sunday, although Robert Turbin was the RB to score for the Cowboys, finishing with seven carries for 51 yards. The matchups don't look great for McFadden over the next two weeks, with the Jets and Bills next up on the schedule.
McFadden rushed 14 times for 53 yards and a touchdown, but also lost two fumbles in Monday night's win over the Redskins. McFadden also caught one pass for six receiving yards. While the veteran running back scored the Cowboys' lone touchdown from six yards out with just over a minute left in the fourth quarter, two fumbles hurt McFadden's fantasy performance. Despite those mishaps, McFadden was still trusted down the stretch, so it seems his stating role will remain intact ahead of Sunday's game in Green Bay.
