Darren McFadden fantasy status 'iffy' for Sunday

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

Darren McFadden is reportedly "iffy" for Sunday's game between the Raiders and the Saints with an ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden is "iffy" for Sunday's game between the Oakland Raiders and the New Orleans Saints with an ankle injury, according to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports. He is much more likely to suit up in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

McFadden did not practice last week, and was ruled out for Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He was spotted in walking boot Monday, along with backup running back Mike Goodson.

Fantasy Impact: You will want to follow up with injury reports throughout the week, but for now it looks like McFadden will likely sit out against the Saints. If that's the case, expect Marcel Reece to once again head up the running game. He had 13 carries for 48 yards and seven receptions for 56 yards last week.

Reece is worth targeting off waivers in standard formats, if you didn't do so last week. He has a good matchup this week against a Saints team that ranks last in the NFL in total defense.
