Darren McFadden breaks 100-yard mark for fantasy owners

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Darren McFadden eclipsed 100 yards for the third time in 2012. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden rushed for 110 yards on 30 carries against the Chiefs in Week 15. The Raiders relied on him to keep moving the ball and running out the clock down the stretch.

He also added four receptions for 39 yards to his stat line on Sunday. McFadden's 145 yards marked a season-high for Oakland's No. 1 back.

Fantasy Impact: DMC did what he was asked from his team. While the explosion wasn't quite there, he proved he could shoulder the load and carry the team late in the game.

McFadden has rushed for 100+ yards in three games this season. Two were against the Chiefs. Expect another high-upside performance when Oakland takes on Kansas City next week.
