The Oakland Raiders won't give RB Darren McFadden (ankle) a full workload in his first game back. According to beat writer Steve Corkran, the Raiders plan to make FB Marcel Reece the primary halfback while McFadden eases back into game shape.
McFadden will be playing for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain back in Week 9.
Fantasy Impact: No real surprise here, the team would be foolish to grind down their injury-prone back in a lost season. Reece has been filling in admirably and is the preferred option in passing downs. Keep rolling him out as a flex play.
I don't see DMC providing much value this week, and he's too risky to start in your fantasy playoffs. It's another disappointing season for him.
