2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Itís fair to say that the light came on for McFadden in 2011. With 761 total yards and five touchdowns over the first six games, the 2008 1st round pick appeared on the verge of establishing himself as one of the premier running backs in the league. However, a severely sprained foot in Week 7 caused him to miss the remainder of the season and his fantasy owners were mystified that the Raiders failed to fully disclose the extent of the injury until late in the year. That was a huge blow as McFadden had the potential to be the top fantasy producer at running back despite having to share time with Michael Bush. In 2012, Bush has left for Chicago providing McFadden with an opportunity to be a workhorse back but his injury history suggests that is unlikely to happen. In his four seasons in the league, he has failed to produce a 16 game season and has missed 19 games due to injury. In McFadden, you are getting an extremely talented player who will likely average 20 touches a game but he also is a major injury risk. The injury risk was negated in prior years because fantasy owners knew they could grab Michael Bush and expect him to produce with McFadden out. That isnít the case this season. Consider McFadden a low-end fantasy starter with major upside but grabbing him likely means using a high mid-round pick on your RB3.

McFadden returning kicks in OTAs     -- Mon Jun 9 5:10 pm --

In competition with Maurice Jones-Drew at RB
RB Darren McFadden got a lot of work returning kicks today. "Anything is an option," Raiders HC Dennis Allen said. (Vic Tafur on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Allen told the same reporter (Vic Tafur) in late May that he was "considering" Maurice Jones-Drew as a punt returner. It's impossible at this point to tell whether MJD or McFadden will lead the backfield in touches this season, but the former's three-year contract (as opposed to the latter's one-year deal) suggests the Raiders expect Jones-Drew to come out on top.
