Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew agrees

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 05:36:15 -0700

The Oakland Raiders agreed with free-agent RB Maurice Jones-Drew (Jaguars) on a three-year deal. He's set to take a physical Friday, March 28, and sign the deal later in the day.

Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew will have to split carries with Darren McFadden, which could keep them both healthy. They also could cancel each other out in fantasy. Jones-Drew has the consistency, but McFadden could have the burst. Monitor this timeshare in camp, but we see both as weak RB3s right now.

Raiders | Darren McFadden probable

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 14:12:04 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (knee, ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 20, and is probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: In what may surprise many, McFadden will play against the San Diego Chargers. However, he'll be limited to a backup role to Rashad Jennings. Jennings' owners probably won't be happy. He's still playable, but more so as a flex than in a starting RB spot. McFadden is a risky play, regardless.

Raiders | Darren McFadden limited

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 16:04:48 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (knee, ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: There's a chance that DMC returns against the San Diego Chargers, but don't hold your breath. More importantly, don't put all your chips on McFadden in your championship game. Rashad Jennings has earned more carries even if McFadden returns to the lineup.

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 11:53:28 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Bottom line: You can't trust DMC in your starting lineup for the fantasy semis, even if he suits up. Rashad Jennings could return this weekend, too. If he doesn't Marcel Reece may be a desperation play against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Raiders | Darren McFadden has ankle injury

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 15:30:04 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (ankle) missed practice with an ankle injury Wednesday, Dec. 4, after he missed three games this season with a strained right hamstring. "He actually injured the ankle in the game the other day and it was (hurt) more than what we had initially thought," head coach Dennis Allen said. "He wasn't able to go today and hopefully we'll be able to get him out there soon, but I don't know." It's likely that McFadden sits out against the New York Jets in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Make plans to be without McFadden, who had only five carries in the team's Week 13 loss. Rashad Jennings (concussion), assuming he is cleared to play, is a solid RB2 against the New York Jets.

Thu, 28 Nov 2013 09:22:37 -0800

Raiders | Darren McFadden will play

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 13:37:44 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) will play in Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 28, for the first time since straining his right hamstring Nov. 3. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson said earlier this week that they would ride the "hot hand" of RB Rashad Jennings. "The guy that's in there and being the most effective will be the guy that gets the opportunity," head coach Dennis Allen said. "But I see them both getting a chance to carry the ball. We'll see how it goes. We'll play (it) out as the game plays along."

Fantasy Tip: Jennings could easily see more of a workload in this one and should be seen as an RB 2 or flex. McFadden is more of a flex option as they look to ease him back into the mix.

Raiders | Darren McFadden questionable

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 11:23:16 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 28. McFadden practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Even if McFadden can play, Rashad Jennings has done such a good job in his absence, it is hard to imagine head coach Dennis Allen upsetting the apple cart and making a change. McFadden might very well see carries, but expect a 50-50 split at best for McFadden. He is only worth a look as a low-end RB2 or flex play if active.

Raiders | Darren McFadden limited

Tue, 26 Nov 2013 16:42:12 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden has been limited the last two days and will probably be questionable for Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. If he's playing, he should probably be in your lineup with the nice matchup. If not, Rashad Jennings is also a solid play.

Raiders | Darren McFadden does some work

Mon, 25 Nov 2013 14:24:23 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) did some running Monday, Nov. 25. Head coach Dennis Allen said the team will see how McFadden feels before deciding on his status for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden likely will regain his starting job if he is able to play. If he is able to play, he should be a low-end No. 2 or flex option that comes with some risk because he could be limited. Rashad Jennings would be a solid No. 2 running back if McFadden misses another game.

Raiders | Timeshare coming at running back

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 05:33:06 -0800

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen suggested there will be a timeshare at running back when RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) returns. RB Rashad Jennings has rushed 57 times for 340 yards (6.0 yards per carry) in the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden's stock is at a career low. He still needs to be rostered, but he's probably not worth playing until we see how this committee will work.
