Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden (ankle) has been ruled out of the team's Week 15 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. McFadden didn't practice and has only played in one of the team's last five games.
Fantasy Impact: With only three games left and nothing to play for, there is talk that the Raiders may just send McFadden to injured reserve. He certainly didn't do anything this year to shed his label as one of the most fragile running backs in the NFL. McFadden missed five games with injuries, and missed plenty of series and quarters in other games. The highlights of his fantasy season include a 129-yard rushing game back in Week 2 and two touchdowns in Week 8. He hasn't done anything else noteworthy when healthy.
In his absence, Rashad Jennings will get the start and full back Marcel Reece may factor into the mix as well. Jennings has filled in admirably for McFadden and presents a viable fantasy option, but he'll have a tough matchup this week against the Chiefs. This makes Jennings a decent RB2 option in Week 15.
