Poll: Will Darren McFadden rush for 100+ yards in Week 12?

Even though there was some speculation that a groin injury and sloppy field conditions in Miami would lead to a reduced workload, Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden carried the ball 29 times for 129 yards on Sunday.

Since taking over as the team's featured back after their Week 6 bye, McFadden has exceeded 100 rushing yards in three of five games.

In addition, McFadden has exceeded 100 yards from scrimmage in a fourth game during that span.

Durability has long been a huge concern with McFadden as he played a full 16-game season only once in his career (last season). Over the past five games, however, no running back has had a larger workload than McFadden (137 touches).

Only four other running backs have at least 100 touches since Week 7 -- Adrian Peterson (118), Jonathan Stewart (114), Todd Gurley (113) and Doug Martin (108).

On a short week, the Cowboys will host the unbeaten Carolina Panthers tomorrow on Thanksgiving. While the matchup isn't ideal, the Cowboys will likely give McFadden another heavy workload.

Will McFadden rush for 100-plus yards against the Panthers in Week 12?
