Raiders | Darren McFadden still vital for offense

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden is still vital to the Raiders offense, even with QB Terrelle Pryor running the read option offense, according to head coach Dennis Allen. "Darren understands how the read-option functions and when we call those types of plays, and again, that's part of what we do, it's not exclusively what we do," Allen said. "There will be times when we turn around and hand the ball to Darren and give him an opportunity that he knows he's running the football. Darren's going to be fine, guys. Everybody's got a lot of concern about that, but Darren's going to be fine."

Fantasy Tip: Having a quarterback that can run does ding a running back’s value a bit. While you still have to start McFadden, keep in mind he may not bring in the same value as he would if he had a traditional signal caller in front of him.
