Darren McFadden looks promising in fantasy return

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Darren McFadden was finally back to work on Thursday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden finally made it back to action after missing four weeks with an ankle injury. He rushed for 54 yards on 11 carries while catching two passes for 12 yards and a touchdown against the Broncos on Thursday night.

The Raiders were forced to throw the ball often in comeback mode, so McFadden didn't see a ton of carries down the stretch.

Fantasy Impact: DMC finished the first half with seven rushing yards. A 36-yard burst to open up the third quarter padded his stats for the evening. It didn't look like his ankle was much of a hindrance throughout the game.

Oakland faces Kansas City next week, which should be another chance for McFadden to post a solid stat line.
