I thought McFadden looked explosive at times. As long as he holds up, he will be the lead horse.

Well, I suspect those of us holding on to Michael and expecting his workload to see a bump are just out here whistling in the breeze at this point. I'm not sure he even stepped on the field last night. Meanwhile, "Creaky Joints" McFadden logged 27 carries! At this point, I'm not even sure a McFadden injury would get CM in the game. I almost think if McFadden went down, the Cowboys would go out and sign one of the retreads on the street.

All I can figure is that CM is incapable of pass blocking.

So true Nancy Boy....I was pretty confident that cmike could overtake McFadden in a matter of weeks even without an injury to McFadden but I could not have been more wrong on him. During the Cowboys bye week when they were evaluating him to take over the starter spot something must have went really wrong for Michael to go from potential starter to not even getting any carries.

I think he lacks intelligence (low nfl test scores) and may struggle with the mental aspect of picking up an offense.

Is it time to cut him? I drafted him as a rookie in my dynasty league and have talked him up for years. My league mates are laughing and reminding me of the year I drafted Deuce McAllister instead of Priest Holmes, geez. But really, he's on washingtons practice squad now, is it time to give up?

Awesome thread. I've had him on my team(s) three different times this year, still on the roster in one league. I still think he'll find his way eventually.

This player and championship game setup reminds me of the year that my best friend won our league due to the only huge game (ever?) by Jerad Cook. The owner who has the stones to start Michael in the championship could be the subject of fantasy lore for years to come!
