Darren McFadden has been ruled out by the Oakland Raiders for Week 12, according to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. The Raiders will also be without Mike Goodson against the Cincinnati Bengals, meaning Marcel Reece will likely handle to rushing load once again out of the backfield.
McFadden nor Goodson was able to practice at all this past week. The Raiders will revisit the status of their top two running backs next week, though it appears there is a good chance both players will miss more time.
Fantasy Impact: Reece is arguably an RB1 in PPR leagues, with 19 receptions over his last three outings. He has had at least 95 total yards in each of those three games, making him a solid starter in standard formats, too. In fact, his ability as a pass catcher makes him a safer option than most since he can still produce if (or perhaps, inevitably) the Raiders abandon the running game when they find themselves down.
