Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is probable for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, having been a full participant in practice every day this week. McFadden has been on the injury report for weeks now, but his shoulder hasn't kept him from playing in any games this season.
Against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6, McFadden was the most involved he has been in the Raiders offense all year. He ran the ball 27 times for 70 yards and a touchdown and added three receptions for 28 yards.
Fantasy Impact: McFadden has struggled this season in the Raiders' new zone blocking scheme, but his shoulder shouldn't be any concern. He had two big runs called back in the Falcons game that would have given him his best day of the year.
McFadden is up against one of the worst run defenses in the league this week in the Jaguars and is playing at home. With his increased touches and full health, this is the best time all season to trust McFadden as your starting running back.
