Darren McFadden struggled Sunday, racking up just 41 total yards during Sunday's game between the Raiders and Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden ran for just 22 yards on 11 carries, and had 19 yards receiving on two receptions during Sunday's game between the Oakland Raiders and the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted seven times during the game, one week after being targeted 18 times by quarterback Carson Palmer.

Fantasy Impact: Raiders' coaches said during the week that they were looking to give McFadden less touches after running him into the ground during the season opener. The running back still had enough opportunities to produce Sunday, but he simply couldn't find a groove. Unfortunately, next week's game against Pittsburgh Steelers won't make things any easier.
