SB Nation and XFINITY are teaming up in The Extra Point Poll series where we will pick two players at the same position and ask you who will have the better fantasy week. Last week we asked you which quarterback would throw for more yards, Andrew Luck or Ben Rothlisberger. Luck lead the Colts to a come from behind win vs the Packers in Week 5. He was 31-55 for 362 yards and 2 touchdown passes, while Rothlisberger went 21-37 for 207 yards and no touchdowns. Luck is quickly showing that he is the real deal, and should be a low end QB1 going forward.
In this week's Extra Point Poll presented by XFINITY, we will take a look at two struggling running backs coming off of their bye week: Raiders RB Darren McFadden and Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray. McFadden is averaging just 3.5 yards per carry for 201 yards rushing through four games and just one touchdown. He will be on the road to face the Falcons in the dome in Atlanta in Week 6.
Murray is averaging just 3.9 yards per carry for 237 yards per carry and one touchdown. Murray will be on the road to face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6. The Ravens rush defense is not as good as in prior years, as they gave up over 200 yards on the ground vs the Chiefs in Week 5, so Murray could be in for a big week on the ground.
Which running back will rush for the most yards in Week 6: Darren McFadden or DeMarco Murray?
