Darren McFadden has no setbacks from career-high workload: Fantasy implications

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Darren McFadden set a career high with 34 touches against the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden got a monster workload against the Kansas City Chiefs, but coach Dennis Allen said he was just fine afterwards and "was able to stay fresh". McFadden racked up 30 carries in Week 15, a career high. The 34 overall touches are a season-high. He finished the game with 149 total yards

McFadden was frequently spelled by Mike Goodson, who got 14 touches and 103 yards of his own.

Fantasy Impact: After missing most of the season with a high ankle sprain, it's good to hear that the notoriously fragile McFadden is finally healthy again.

DMC and the Raiders take on the Panthers in Week 16. He will be a solid RB2 play for the fantasy championships.
