Darren McFadden practiced Thursday for the Oakland Raiders, and is reportedly "looking good for Sunday's game" against the Cleveland Browns, according to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. McFadden has missed the Raiders' last three games with an ankle injury.
The Contra Costa Times reported earlier that Marcel Reece will likely maintain a significant role within the offense even if McFadden is marked active. It is unclear how touches would be split between the two.
Fantasy Impact: Of the two backs, Reece is likely the better fantasy option going forward considering his healthier outlook, recent success and heavy involvement in the passing game. McFadden's return will certainly hinder Reece's fantasy value, however.
Reece should still be considered a potential Flex play in standard formats, and RB2 in PPR leagues this week against the Browns. After that game, we will hopefully have better idea of how the Raiders intend to use McFadden through the end of the regular season.
