I owned him in 2/3 leagues and still finished top 3 so I guess I havent felt the "burn" from Mcfadden yet. I just love how people think taking Mcfadden in the 2/3 sucks your team into oblivion if he gets hurt.
(insert "bro i play in competitive leaguez bro so itz hard to lose one of my top pix. join a real league bro i'm a pro bro. #probro247)
He's a very talented player with a strong track record in the system they are re-installing ... Around pick 30 there are no "safe" RBs ... there are very few that offer the #cowbellhorseworkmodeswagbeast potential he does at that price either ... and there is no such thing as a "safe" pick (ap...mccoy...charles...forte...) to begin with ...
Maybe you would have won those two leagues if you had had a productive player instead of McFadden.
