Knowshon Moreno, Darren McFadden putting up solid points for fantasy owners

Thearon W. Henderson

Knowshon Moreno and Darren McFadden are finding ways to score for their owners. We break down the fantasy implications.

Knowshon Moreno rushed for 50 yards on 13 carries and caught two passes for 30 yards in the first half of Thursday Night Football in Week 14. On the other side, Darren McFadden only gained seven yards rushing on five carries, but he managed to score a receiving touchdown towards the end of the second quarter.

Both running backs figure to be a big part of the game plan down the stretch.

Fantasy Impact: John Fox is sticking with Moreno as the featured back. Ronnie Hillman is seeing a few touches here and there, but Moreno is running well, which should keep him active in the second half.

McFadden still can't find much room to run. However, the Carson Palmer checks down often, which should help DMC boost his stats.
