Darren McFadden gets another full practice in: Fantasy implications

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Darren McFadden got a full practice in on Thursday and should be ready to go in Week 15. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (ankle) got in a full practice on Thursday. It's his second straight day of full practices, indicating that his ankle is just fine despite tweaking it in last Thursday's game.

With 10 days to rest the ankle, McFadden is fully expected to suit up against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: The only real question is this: how productive will DMC be? He's burned many fantasy owners with yet another plodding, injury-filled season, and will probably not be drafted in the first round again next August.

There's a chance of DMC going off against the crumbling Chiefs, but can you really trust him in the fantasy playoffs? If you have a safer RB2/flex option, go with that rather than rolling the dice.
