Darren McFadden the first round pick a year back for the Oakland Raiders came in with big expectations and didn't quite live up to them.

Everyone is use to the explosive powerful back that we seen in Arkansas the one that broke off 60-70 yard runs consistently we didn't see that last year because of a turf toe he sustained week two against the chiefs ever since then his explosiveness was limited and so was his touches he later sustained another turf toe to the opposite foot postponing his break out season to year two.

Darren McFadden having a break out year is key to the raiders success for this upcoming season expect him to have a more important role and get more carries receive more catches with the injury free McFadden the raiders will unleash the ultimate weapon.
