2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
How many times are fantasy owners going to get bit by the Darren McFadden bug before we finally all get together and decide we’ve had enough? Don’t look for the trend to end anytime soon as McFadden is still being drafted in the top-10 rounds of most fantasy drafts so far this off-season. There’s no question that the talent is there, but McFadden just doesn’t seem to have the determination to be great anymore and his offensive line certainly hasn’t helped matters. Over the past three seasons, McFadden has played in just 26 games while averaging only 3.8 yards per carry and scoring 11 touchdowns. While his price tag on draft day is at an all-time low, McFadden still represents a significant risk with little upside. It would take an injury to Jones-Drew, a suddenly productive offense and a shockingly healthy McFadden for him to ever return to the fantasy glory he once had, if only for a short while. Nonetheless, McFadden is still worth a late-round flier. Don’t expect much from him, though, or you’re likely going to be let down…again.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Latavius Murray may not be ready Sunday
RB suffered a concussion in Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 28, 1:45 pm

Oakland Raiders
After looking optimistic early in the week, sources tell me it's not likely for #Raiders RB Latavius Murray to play this week (John Middlekauff via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray was at practice this week but he's yet to be cleared for game action. If he sits, the Raiders will return to Darren McFadden as their primiary ball-carrier however, a bigger workload for Marcel Reece wouldn't be out of the question given the lack of punch supplied this season by McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew.


Injury McFadden expected to start for Raiders
Murray to see action as well
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 12, 9:00 am

Oakland Raiders
Maurice Jones-Drew said Thursday that he had a procedure performed on his right hand — not for a broken bone, he said — and the running back and the Raiders’ coaching staff are essentially ruling him out for Sunday’s game. "I would like to go out there (Sunday), but it’s a long season," said Jones-Drew, whose hand was very swollen. (SF Gate)

FFToday's Take: OC Greg Olson said Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray would be the running backs this week. "Last week we wanted to see Maurice Jones-Drew in a full-time role," Olson said. "This week, I don't know if we'll see that. We'll start with Darren, and it probably will be more series-wise with Latavius and Darren."


Injury MJD recovering from right hand surgery
Appears unlikely to go in Week 2
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 11, 6:25 pm

Oakland Raiders
Maurice Jones-Drew said he had a procedure on his right hand — not for a broken bone, he said — and the running back and the Raiders coaching staff essentially ruled him out for Sunday’s game. "I would like to go out there (Sunday), but it’s a long season,” said Jones-Drew, whose hand was very swollen. Raiders OC Greg Olson said that Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray would both get a crack at it if/when Jones-Drew can’t go against the Texans. (San Francisco Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: In a bit of an irony, McFadden came out of Week 1 healthy and should be expected to be the lead back on Sunday. Oakland should enjoy more success on the ground versus Houston than it did against the stout Jets' run defense, so McFadden's owners should feel comfortable using him as a flex or even RB2 if MJD is ruled out.
