Darren McFadden still carries limited value

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:16 pm ET) Raiders running back Darren McFadden has fallen on such hard times that even a three-week span with one double-digit Fantasy performance counts as a career renaissance. Does he have another level he can take his game to?

McFadden ranks 29th among running backs in Fantasy points over his last three games, but has just 25 Fantasy points. This might be more indicative of just how bad the position has been recently, as he isn't exactly lighting the world on fire. McFadden has topped 4.0 yards per carry just once this season, and has registered one or more Fantasy points through the air in just two games.

McFadden gets work, which will always make him an interesting Fantasy option, no matter how mediocre he is. Still, there are higher upside options out there than McFadden, who also carries the constant risk of injury. As a third Fantasy running back, McFadden is fine, but he doesn't have much more value than that at this point.  

Raiders' Darren McFadden leads the way Week 7

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/14) Raiders running back Darren McFadden led the way on the ground Week 7.

McFadden again received the majority of the carries for Oakland, picking up 48 yards on 14 carries. He averaged just 3.4 yards per attempt during the contest. McFadden did manage to plunge in on a 1 yard run near the end of the second quarter. McFadden also hauled in four passes, but only gained 7 yards. 

He'll look for more Week 8 against the Browns. 

Does Darren McFadden matter again?

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/14) Darren McFadden's performance Week 6 against San Diego was notable. Not only did he again stave off Maurice Jones-Drew, who played only 25 percent of the snaps in his second game back from minor hand surgery and carried only four times, but McFadden also ran for a season-high 80 yards against a defense that ranks ninth against the run.

McFadden hasn't exactly been a workhorse for the Raiders, but for the season he's averaging 3.9 yards per carry. He has been good enough to keep getting chances.

So does he deserve a second chance (or third or fourth) in Fantasy? That might be going a bit far. Given McFadden's injury history, the Raiders may never trust him to carry a full load and may gradually increase Jones-Drew's carries as he works his way back into form. Also, a big reason McFadden didn't get more carries in Jones-Drew's absence is because the 0-5 Raiders were so often playing from behind. That doesn't figure to change.

McFadden deserves to be owned in Fantasy because the opportunity is there for him to exceed expectations, but as things stand now, you probably shouldn't start him except as a bye-week replacement.

Raiders' Darren McFadden has semi-vintage performance Sunday

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/14) Raiders running back Darren McFadden had somewhat of a vintage performance in a Week 6 defeat to the Chargers on Sunday.

McFadden got the start and had three runs of 10-plus yards, including a 17-yard run late in the third quarter for his longest gain of the day. He took 14 handoffs for a season-high 80 yards, averaging 5.7 yards per carry.He was thrown to four times and finished with two catches for 6 yards in a 31-28 defeat. He has 231 rushing yards on the year.

The Raiders will host the Cardinals in Week 7.

Can anything be salvaged in Raiders' backfield?

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/7/14) The Raiders backfield duo of Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew has produced just 27 Fantasy points over four games, falling well short of even our most pessimistic expectations so far. Is there any upside moving forward?

McFadden has taken the lead with Jones-Drew slowed by injury, but has done little to inspire confidence, rushing for just 3.4 yards per carry on 45 attempts. With a full bye week to recover, there is reason to think Jones-Drew will take on a heavier load in Week 6 against the Chargers, but you will probably want to steer clear of both this week.

The Chargers are allowing 15.8 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, the 13th-lowest total in the league. However, they have allowed just 18 points total to the last two backfields they faced, with both the Jaguars and Jets featuring similarly underwhelming options in the running game.

Both McFadden and Jones-Drew have been productive players in the past, but it is hard to see them turning back the lock this Sunday. Consider neither player more than a flex option.
