Darren McFadden Injury Update: Fantasy RB1 ready to have a big day?

Peter Aiken

Darren McFadden had a full week of practice. How confident should you be in him?

Darren McFadden (shoulder) had a full week of practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He will play in the late-afternoon game.

McFadden hasn't hit his stride just yet and 438 yards and two TDs on the ground while adding 29 receptions in the passing game.

Fantasy Impact: There's no need to even worry about this for DMC owners. His shoulder hasn't been a chronic problem in his career and owners should be more worried about his foot holding up -- especially with how things have gone for Maurice Jones-Drew and DeMarco Murray.

McFadden is about to get hot as he schedule softens down the stretch. The Bucs are good on paper and their D has vastyl improved with Lavonte David and with Mason Foster proving his rookie year was a fluke. Start McFadden with confidence.
