Darren McFadden disappoints fantasy owners, lays egg on Monday Night Football

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is tackled for a loss by the Denver Broncos defense on Monday Night Football - Doug Pensinger

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed for 12 yards on nine carries in the Week 3 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed for only 12 yards on nine carries in the Week 3 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. McFadden did throw a touchdown pass for 16 yards to Marcel Reese (more than his rushing total) and was targeted once in the passing game. After producing big in Week 2, McFadden faced a daunting Broncos defense that regularly stacked the the box and forced Terrelle Pryor to throw the ball. Pryor left the game late in the 4th quarter with a possible concussion.

Fantasy impact: After rushing for 129 yards on 19 carries in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, McFadden laid an egg against the Denver Broncos and their stout defense. McFadden owners better hope quarterback Terrelle Pryor can pass the concussion protocol and play in Week 4. If Pryor is out, the Raiders offense has no chance under the direction of Matt Flynn. Tough luck too for them since the Raiders face the Washington Redskins and their charitable defense in Week 4.
