Darren McFadden had 32 yards rushing, and had 86 yards receiving off a whopping 13 receptions during Monday night's game between the Raiders and Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden rushed for 32 yards on 15 carries, and had 86 yards receiving on 13 receptions during Monday night's game between the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers. McFadden was targeted a whopping 18 times as Carson Palmer's check-down option.

Analysis: McFadden did not have a great day rushing, but fantasy owners (in PPR leagues especially) should be relatively pleased this morning. Whether McFadden remains productive depends on Palmer and the rest of the Raiders' offense. McFadden was less effective as the game wore on once it was clear that the Raiders were going to keep getting him touches any way they could at the expense of others. The return of wide receiver Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford from injury, hopefully by next week, should help.
