Darren McFadden breaks out for fantasy owners in Week 8

Jamie Squire

Darren McFadden broke 100 yards for the second time this season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden finally found some room to run in Week 8 against the Chiefs. He carried the ball 29 times for 114 yards, adding four catches for another 23 yards on the afternoon.

This was McFadden's second 100-yard game of 2012 and his highest rushing total of the season.

Fantasy Impact: The Raiders have an easy schedule going forward as far as run defenses go, so we should expect so see better numbers from McFadden. He only averaged 3.9 yards per carry in Week 8, but he nearly broke a few big runs, and Oakland looks determined to force feed him right now.

Tampa Bay is next on the schedule. After seeing what Adrian Peterson did to the Bucs this past week, McFadden's owners should feel optimistic about his outlook.
