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.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) showed improvement Friday, Nov. 29, after suffering a concussion in the team's Week 13 game. Jennings will have to pass the concussion tests before being cleared to play.

Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) suffered a concussion during the team's Week 13 game.
Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden likely would take over as the starting running back if Jennings has to miss any games.

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.

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.
Fri, 22 Nov 2013 13:06:00 -0800
Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) has been ruled out for the team's Week 12 game.
Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings likely will receive a majority of the carries for another week and should be a solid starting option in all leagues. Jennings could also be more involved in the passing game.
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.
Fri, 15 Nov 2013 15:27:36 -0800
Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and has been ruled out for Week 11.
Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings likely will continue to start while McFadden is out. Jennings should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.
Tue, 12 Nov 2013 10:11:12 -0800
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said RB Rashad Jennings has earned increased playing time, even when RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) returns from his injury. Jennings has 190 rushing yards and has caught nine passes for 93 yards in his last two games filling in for McFadden. "It's a production business," Allen said, "and when he's had the opportunity to go in there, he has produced. When you do that, you get more opportunities."
Fantasy Tip: Jennings should now be owned in most leagues, at least as insurance for those that also have McFadden on roster. Once DMC returns, Jennings could be used as a flex in deeper formats.
