Darren McFadden re-injured ankle, fantasy value shaky again

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Darren McFadden may have re-injured his ankle on Thursday Night Football in his first game back since Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden made his return to game action on Thursday night against the Broncos, but it might have been a costly one--McFadden wasn't able to finish the game after re-injuring his ankle. According to a source from Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, McFadden "tweaked" his ankle and it's not as serious as the high ankle sprain that sidelined him for four weeks.

DMC finished the night with 64 total yards on 13 touches.

Fantasy Impact: DMC will have a full 10 days to rest up before taking on the Chiefs, but it's yet another setback for the notoriously fragile back.

Looks like we'll be spending another long week monitoring his progress. At this point, he's probably not worth the starting in re-draft leagues during the fantasy playoffs.
