Fantasy football sit/start advice, Week 13: Rashad Jennings

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We take a look at whether or not you should start Rashad Jennings in your fantasy league.

No running back in the NFL has amassed more yardage over the past four games than Rashad Jennings of the Oakland Raiders. Jennings has carried the ball 73 times for 413 yards and two touchdowns over the last four games, and has 109 carries for 553 yards and the aforementioned two touchdowns on the season.

He's been a pleasant surprise in the wake of multiple injuries to Darren McFadden. Jennings has helped the Raiders fill a void that has been impossible to fill for many seasons, due to how good McFadden has been and how often he seems to get injured.

McFadden looks as though he's ready to return for Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, however. He's been practicing and all signs point to him being active. It's unclear what that means for Jennings in the end.

Fantasy Sit/Start: McFadden certainly won't come in and carry a full load right off the bat. But how much confidence to the Raiders' coaches have in him, anyway? Would Jennings still get plenty of carries even if McFadden is 100 percent healthy? There's many questions, but if there's one thing fantasy owners should count on, it's McFadden not getting a full carry load on Thursday. Jennings is a must-start in deeper leagues until the team takes the ball out of his hands.
