CBSSports.com Fantasy Football analysts Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Darren McFadden among their top 30 running backs for Week 10 against Denver, which makes him at least a passable flex option in standard leagues. But in a week with six teams on bye, that's not saying much.
McFadden, of course, hasn't been the most productive back to begin with, only once rushing for even 60 yards in a game, and the Broncos rank No. 1 against the run, allowing 71.6 yards per game. And because they have one of the best offenses in the league and the Raiders one of the worst, they're likely to pull away early, giving the Raiders even more incentive to pass.
Of course, McFadden is a big enough part of the passing game that he could still factor that way, but his chances of putting up big numbers this week appear even slimmer than usual. If you're able to sit him, it's probably a good idea.
