Darren McFadden denied a touchdown
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Raiders running back Darren McFadden, getting another start in place of the injured Maurice Jones-Drew, had a modest rushing total Week 3 at New England, picking up 59 yards on 18 carries. He also had four catches for 6 yards. He nearly scored a game-tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter, plunging into the end zone from 6 yards out, but the play was overturned by a holding penalty. Rookie quarterback Derek Carr threw an interception on the very next play.

Jones-Drew's status for Week 4 is at this point unknown. The Raiders have a favorable matchup against the Dolphins, who gave up 132 yards to Chiefs backup running back Knile Davis in Week 3.

Maurice Jones-Drew not expected to play for Oakland
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew is expected to miss a second straight game following a procedure on his hand, NFL Network reported Sunday morning. The Raiders play at the Patriots. Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray will once again pick up the slack in his absence.

Dennis Allen likes the way Darren McFadden is running
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Raiders coach Dennis Allen praised running back Darren McFadden's work in Sunday's loss to the Texans. "I thought he ran the ball hard," Allen told ESPN.com.

"I thought he looked explosive. That was good to see. Hopefully we'll be able to continue to get him more opportunities."

With Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) sitting out, McFadden ran 12 times for 37 yards (3.1 ypc) and a touchdown and caught two passes for 31 yards.

Darren McFadden gets the start, scores a touchdown in losing effort
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Raiders running back Darren McFadden got the start and found the end zone Sunday afternoon at home against the Texans in Week 2.

McFadden was limited to six carries for 17 yards on the ground in the first half. He bounced back by scoring on a touchdown run from 1-yard out in the third quarter. Outside of the rushing touchdown, he failed to make much of an impacy and didn't even finish the game as the team's top rusher. His quarterback (Derek Carr) did.

McFadden took 12 handoffs for 37 yards and a touchdown on the ground, averaging 3.1 yards per attempt. He also caught two passes for 31 yards in a 30-14 defeat.

The Raiders will travel to New England for a Week 3 showdown against the Patriots. It remains to be seen if Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) will be ready to return. If he can't play, the team will likely rely on McFadden to shoulder the load again on Sunday.

Raiders to use 'hot hand' approach at running back in Week 2
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Raiders will go with a "hot hand" approach at the running back position Sunday with Maurice Jones-Drew sidelined by a broken hand, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.

"It depends on how the game plays out," head coach Dennis Allen said. "If we have somebody with a hot hand, we are going to go with him. But all of our backs will play."

Darren McFadden is expected to get the start, but Latavius Murray should also have the opportunity to record a fair number of touches if he impresses early. Oakland is going against a Houston team that was gashed for 131 yards on 23 carries (5.7 yards per carry) in Week 1.
