Oakland Raiders quarterback Darren McFadden (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday, according to a report by Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle. McFadden is expected to miss multiple games with the injury and is not going to play against the New York Giants in Week 10.
Fantasy Impact: All of a sudden teammate Rashad Jennings is going to be a top waiver wire addition in fantasy leagues for the second time this year, as he will be the one to benefit from McFadden sitting out against the Giants.
It's a tough thing for McFadden's owners to deal with, as the Raiders starting running back had played solidly against the Pittsburgh Steelers back in Week 8, scoring twice. To make matters worse, he has injured the exact same hamstring muscle that he hurt back in Week 4.
While Jennings is the starter he will be a good bet to produce at a high clip. Filling in for McFadden against the Philadelphia Eagles last week, Jennings managed 176 total yards on 22 touches in the game.
Fantasy owners should note that the New York Giants give up the 12th fewest fantasy points to running backs so far this season.
