Darren McFadden rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's game between the Raiders and the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darren McFadden rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries during Sunday's game between the Oakland Raiders and the Pittsburgh Steelers. McFadden was less productive in the passing game. He had just two receptions for two yards on two targets. McFadden scored on a 64-yard touchdown run in the first quarter that put the Raiders on the board.

Fantasy Impact: McFadden had his first 100-yard rushing game and first touchdown of the season in the win. Fantasy owners had to be relieved to see him break loose into the open field. McFadden is still the backbone of the Raiders' offense, and he should be considered a RB1 going forward in just about every fantasy format.
