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.

McFadden Continues To Disappoint Despite No MJD In Action

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.

Raiders’ upset bid bounces away, 16-9

FOXBOROUGH — No such thing as a moral victory in the NFL? Nonsense. The Raiders, who were 0-2 and expected to be blown out by the Patriots, slowed down Tom Brady and the New England defense, and were down one score late in the fourth quarter. But Oakland couldn’t do enough offensively and lost 16-9 at Gillette Stadium. Still, for a team that has been hearing reports of coach Dennis Allen being on the hot seat all week, there were enough positives to take on the flight to London. The Raiders drove down to the 6-yard line, where Darren McFadden bulled in for a touchdown. But a holding call...

(SF Gate) FF Today'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...

Can pretty much rule Jones-Drew out for Sunday

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 offensive coordinator 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. Jones-Drew said he has two hands and he could always hold the football in the left hand when he ran but … “There...
