Darren McFadden hurt again, fantasy owners not surprised

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Darren McFadden sat out of practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden did not practice on Wednesday. He suffered a hamstring injury on Sunday and did not return.

Things are not looking up for McFadden and this is the third time he's pulled a muscle in his leg. He has quickly gained a reputation as one of the most injury-prone backs in the NFL and for good reason. His strain is to the same spot as the injury from Week 4, so the aggravation doesn't bode well for his outlook.

The Raiders will look to Rashad Jennings to carry the ball the most. Jennings was effective on Sunday against the Eagles with 176 yards on 22 touches.

Fantasy impact: It sounds like DMC sould be out for a while. The Raiders aren't going to put him in the lineup at less than 100 percent, so it should be all systems go for Jennings. Marcel Reece is also an option for owners in PPR leagues, especially since the New York Giants aren't very strong on defense and the Raiders could have success.
