Darren McFadden misses practice as fantasy value on hold another week

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

Darren McFadden (ankle) missed his third straight practice Friday and is unlikely to play in Week 12. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (ankle) was held out of practice Friday, reports Steve Corkran. This is the third straight day he's missed practice, making him all but guaranteed to miss Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. McFadden hasn't played since suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 9.

With Mike Goodson also sitting out, Marcel Reece is expected to get the start again.

Fantasy Impact: Looks like we're playing the annual "wait and see" game once again with the notoriously fragile DMC. He may or may not return in time for the fantasy playoffs, but it's still a week-to-week situation.

Reece has been a solid flex option in both standard and PPR fantasy leagues. Keep rolling him out against the Bengals.
