Darren McFadden still carries limited value
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Raiders running back Darren McFadden has fallen on such hard times that even a three-week span with one double-digit Fantasy performance counts as a career renaissance. Does he have another level he can take his game to?

McFadden ranks 29th among running backs in Fantasy points over his last three games, but has just 25 Fantasy points. This might be more indicative of just how bad the position has been recently, as he isn't exactly lighting the world on fire. McFadden has topped 4.0 yards per carry just once this season, and has registered one or more Fantasy points through the air in just two games.

McFadden gets work, which will always make him an interesting Fantasy option, no matter how mediocre he is. Still, there are higher upside options out there than McFadden, who also carries the constant risk of injury. As a third Fantasy running back, McFadden is fine, but he doesn't have much more value than that at this point.

Andre Holmes comes back down to earth
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Raiders wide receiver Andre Holmes, who blew up for 121 yards and two touchdowns Week 6 against San Diego, took a long time to get going Week 7 against Arizona, catching his first pass about midway through the fourth quarter. Not surprisingly, he finished with just three catches for 34 yards. 

It's not like he was invisible before then. He nearly had a great catch on a long pass along the sidelines in the second quarter, but it was ruled incomplete. He did have only two targets apart from his three receptions, though.

Clearly, it was a disappointing showing, but it's not like quarterback Derek Carr forgot about him. Only James Jones and Darren McFadden had more targets, tying for the team lead with eight. Holmes spent much of the game covered by Patrick Peterson, who remains one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL. Holmes still has incredible play-making ability and will have better days.

But this performance shows why you can't trust him on an every-week basis yet. His matchup Week 8 against Cleveland is another tricky one because of cornerback Joe Haden, who has struggled at times this season but limited the Jaguars' Cecil Shorts to three catches for 12 yards in Week 7. You might want to leave Holmes on your bench for this one.

Pick not enough to save Raiders DST
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Raiders had both an interception and a sack in Week 7 -- just the second time they've had one of each in a game to give them three and six, respectively, on the year -- but they didn't have the greatest defensive showing against Arizona, allowing 24 points on 365 yards.

They did at least snap a streak of two straight in which they allowed more than 30 points on more than 400 yards, but if this is the upside for the Raiders DST, it's clearly a unit you want no part of in Fantasy.

Even with a favorable matchup Week 8 at the Browns, who were just shown up by the Jaguars in Week 7, you can do better than the Raiders DST in standard 12-team leagues.
