Fantasy Football Free Agent Frenzy Week 8

Fantasy Football Free Agent Frenzy Week 8

After hitting on many free agents last week, this is another solid week to make some changes to your fantasy football team. Welcome back to another edition of my best pickups for the upcoming week and for the rest of the season. We will always list 10 or less options as too many may be confusing.  Here are some of the players we listed last week that if still available are good options: Andre Holmes, Mohamed Sanu, Odell Beckham, Jr.,  Darren McFadden, Malcom Floyd and Tre Mason.  Let's get to the list in order of preference; Bryce Brown -  He is my pick to get the most carries for...

McFadden Outperforms MJD In Week 6

Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed 14 times for 80 yards, while teammate Maurice Jones-Drew had four rushing attempts and ran for 30 yards.Fantasy Spin:Maurice Jones-Drew was supposed to get a larger share of the rushing attempts, but that didn't happen. We still don't know what to make of the Raiders backfield and at this time don't recommend either back, but if you must then McFadden is the option.

Run DMC Will Start Over MJD

Raiders running back Darren McFadden is expected to start in Week 4 against the Dolphins according to ESPN.Fantasy Spin:Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is ready to go, but McFadden apparently keeps the starting role because he received more practice time. Both running backs should see time along with Latavius Murray, so none of Raiders running backs should be used.

Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew expects to play this week

After missing two games following hand surgery, Maurice Jones-Drew has returned to practice and is ready to play Sunday. When asked if he will play Sunday against the Dolphins, he said, "Yeah, definitely, It's not up to me but I feel like I'll be able to play." If given clearance, he'll return to split carries with Darren McFadden. FANTASY ANALYSIS: He should be cleared, but it's difficult to know if the Raiders will ease him back into the fold with limited snaps. If Jones-Drew does play, he'll be no more than an RB3 option but one with RB2 upside. The Chiefs' Knile Davis was able to gash the...

Pats 2nd-quarter review: Hightower rises

Picked-up pieces after reviewing the second quarter of the New England Patriots' 16-9 victory over the Oakland Raiders: 1. A three-play sequence from Dont'a Hightower (13:43-12:38) showcased his physicality, versatility and athleticism as he is playing at a very high level right now in a three-down role. On third-and-7, he had a strong rush off the defensive left side, keeping his feet against a low block by running back Darren McFadden to produce a pressure on a completed pass.

Raiders running back Darren McFadden had the backfield all to himself for another weekend and still he couldn't come up with a fantasy-worthy total.Fantasy Spin:He rushed for 58 yards on 18 carries and caught four balls for six yards. It's time to give up on him as a viable fantasy asset.
