Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Rashad Jennings is capable RB2

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Rashad Jennings has done a fine job filling in for Darren McFadden and is expected to get the starting job again this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings has rewarded fantasy owners who handcuffed him to Darren McFadden. When McFadden went down with his yearly lingering injury, Jennings took the starting job and ran with it. Over the past two games, Jennings has piled up 190 rushing yards and a touchdown on 35 carries, good for 5.4 yards per carry. He's also been an asset in the passing game, recording nine catches for 93 yards in that same span.

McFadden did not practice this week and isn't expected to be active against the Houston Texans, so Jennings should get the starting job for at least one more week.

Fantasy impact: With Terrelle Pryor regressing and now injured, the Raiders have leaned on Jennings more. He's paying off so far, but will have a tough test against the Texans defense. Still, Jennings has proven himself as a capable RB2. Fantasy owners should keep him on the roster even when McFadden comes back.
