Darren McFadden injury update: It'll be the Rashad Jennings Show for fantasy owners

Brian Bahr

Rashad Jennings will be ready for action on Sunday with Darren McFadden out of the lineup. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden will not play against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. He did not practice all week and has no timetable to return. This will be his third game out of the lineup after suffering an injury in the first half of Oakland's Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Raiders have turned to Rashad Jennings to handle the load and he's been terrific. In his last three weeks, he's averaged 116.7 rushing yards, 3.7 catches and has two TDs. Jennings has at least 22 touches in each of those games and is the definition of a featured back.

Fantasy impact: Owners can cut McFadden if they want to. If DMC does come back, the team will likely manage his workload and the days of him seeing 20 carries look to be long gone. As for Jennings, he is a top-10 option in all formats. The Titans do have a strong pass defense, but they can be vulnerable against the run. Fantasy owners shouldn't be looking to sell high on Jennings.
