Darren McFadden, Mike Goodson listed as questionable: Fantasy implications

Thearon W. Henderson

Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are listed as questionable with ankle injuries on the Raiders' injury report Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are listed as questionable for Sunday's game between the Oakland Raiders and the Cleveland Browns, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle. Both players were able to practice on a limited basis this week after sitting the last three games with ankle injuries.

McFadden was noncommittal about his playing status when asked. Assuming he does suit up, it is unclear what kind of role he will have in conjunction with Marcel Reece, who has racked up 400 total from scrimmage over the last three weeks.

Fantasy Impact: McFadden is probably better left on your bench this week, just in case. He was averaging 3.3 yards per carry when healthy, and the fact that he could be on a limited snap count gives him a lot of dud potential this week. Reece still appears to be a solid fantasy play (and a no-brainer in PPR leagues) though McFadden is sure to cut into his fantasy value some.
