Darren McFadden continues to struggle for fantasy owners

Sam Greenwood

Darren McFadden still isn't finding much room to run. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden struggled yet again in Week 7, rushing for just 53 yards on 19 carries against the Jaguars. He did manage to add four receptions for 28 yards to pad his stats down the stretch.

The Raiders are not opening up lanes for McFadden, and it was apparent by his 2.8 yards per carry on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Until Oakland figures out Greg Knapp's blocking scheme, McFadden doesn't seem like he's going to be racking up the yards each week. The Jaguars came into this game allowing a ridiculous 163 yards per game on the ground, so it's disappointing to see the ground game stifled again.

McFadden will take on the Chiefs next week, another team with a porous run defense. Fantasy owners obviously aren't going to sit him as long as he's healthy, so continue to pray his numbers/the Raiders improve.
