|Darren McFadden a no-go at Wednesday practice |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(12/4/13) Raiders deposed featured back Darren McFadden did not practice Wednesday. He had returned to game action from a hamstring injury Sunday in Dallas, but had just five carries.
His inactivity, which could be precautionary, resulted in practice reps at that spot for cornerback Taiwan Jones, according to ESPN.
|Jones moving to corner |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(2/22/13) ESPN reports that Oakland's Taiwan Jones plans to move from running back to cornerback this season, which is being received well from the Raiders' brass. Im pushing for cornerback, Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie said. I think it fits his skill set. I think were going to see how he does there. McKenzie acknowledged it will not be easy for Jones to make a position switch, but he thinks he can do it. McKenzie said hed be thrilled if Jones could someday develop into a nickel cornerback. McKenzie said he had Jones projected as a cornerback when Oakland took him in the fourth round out of Eastern Washington in 2011.
|Taiwan Jones is likely moving from offense to defense this season in an effort to get more playing time. Jones will likely be a cornerback for the Raiders after two years as a backup running back where he had just 22 carries for 94 yards and two catches for 25 yards. Keep an eye on what he does during training camp, but a move to defense will negate any Fantasy value he has in the majority of leagues. And owners in IDP leagues should just monitor how Jones does. He won’t be worth drafting right away, but he could be someone to add off the waiver wire if he starts out playing well. (Updated 4/26/13) |
