2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
It seems like only yesterday that Maurice Jones-Drew was a lock to be a top-five fantasy draft choice in every league throughout the country, but his days of averaging over 1,500 total yards and 12 touchdowns per season appear to be a thing of the past. Like his quarterback Schaub, Jones-Drew now finds himself across the country, stuck in an uninspiring offense that appears to be set on rekindling past glory of past-their-prime players. Worse yet, Jones-Drew joins a crowded backfield that features fellow former first-round fantasy pick Darren McFadden and second-year speedster Latavius Murray. While Jones-Drew appears to have the upper hand on winning the starting job in Oakland, a running-back-by-committee approach seems very feasible. Even if Jones-Drew does earn the full-time starting gig, it will be in an offense that is likely to be among the very worst in the league, so don’t expect another double-digit touchdown season. Jones-Drew is a high-end RB3 for the time being, with RB2 upside and a significant downside that makes him a risk even late in drafts.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury McFadden expected to start for Raiders
Murray to see action as well
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 12, 9:00 am

Oakland Raiders
Maurice Jones-Drew said Thursday that he had a procedure performed on his right hand — not for a broken bone, he said — and the running back and the Raiders’ coaching staff are essentially ruling him out for Sunday’s game. "I would like to go out there (Sunday), but it’s a long season," said Jones-Drew, whose hand was very swollen. (SF Gate)

FFToday's Take: OC Greg Olson said Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray would be the running backs this week. "Last week we wanted to see Maurice Jones-Drew in a full-time role," Olson said. "This week, I don't know if we'll see that. We'll start with Darren, and it probably will be more series-wise with Latavius and Darren."


Injury MJD recovering from right hand surgery
Appears unlikely to go in Week 2
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 11, 6:25 pm

Oakland Raiders
Maurice Jones-Drew said he had a procedure on his right hand — not for a broken bone, he said — and the running back and the Raiders coaching staff essentially ruled him out for Sunday’s game. "I would like to go out there (Sunday), but it’s a long season,” said Jones-Drew, whose hand was very swollen. Raiders OC Greg Olson said that Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray would both get a crack at it if/when Jones-Drew can’t go against the Texans. (San Francisco Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: In a bit of an irony, McFadden came out of Week 1 healthy and should be expected to be the lead back on Sunday. Oakland should enjoy more success on the ground versus Houston than it did against the stout Jets' run defense, so McFadden's owners should feel comfortable using him as a flex or even RB2 if MJD is ruled out.
