Raiders RB Darren McFadden struggles in win vs. Chiefs
by R.J. White |

Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed for just 29 yards on 12 carries while catching both of his targets for another five yards in his team's 24-20 win over the Chiefs Thursday.

McFadden was on his way towards becoming an afterthought, as sparkplug Latavius Murray racked up 112 yards and two touchdowns on his first four carries. However, Murray suffered a concussion while taking a big hit on a kick return and didn't play in the second half, leaving the door open for McFadden to lead the team in carries. He hasn't cracked three yards per carry in any of his last four games. The Raiders are set to face the Rams in Week 13.

Bigger role predicted for Raiders RB Latavius Murray
by Larry Hartstein |

Latavius Murray led Raiders running backs in snaps last week at San Diego, and he's expected to at least split time with Darren McFadden on Thursday against the Chiefs, reports ESPN's Adam Caplan. Murray got more work than normal in practice this week, according to Kaplan.

Murray ran four times for 43 yards and caught three passes for 16 yards against the Chargers. He played 27 snaps, while McFadden played 22 and Maurice Jones-Drew played 10.

Raiders RB Darren McFadden bottled up in Week 11 loss
by R.J. White |

Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed for just 21 yards on eight carries while failing to catch any of his three targets in his team's 13-6 loss to the Chargers Sunday.

McFadden had trouble getting anything going in the running game, only gaining five yards twice on his best carries. He appeared to lose plenty of time to Latavius Murray in the fourth quarter after the youngster provided a spark late in the third. McFadden's 2.6 yards-per-carry mark Sunday represented his best total in his last three games, and it's possible the Raiders could feed Murray more in the late part of the season as they evaluate the roster for the future. The Raiders have a Thursday night matchup with the Chiefs on tap.

Raiders' McFadden finishes with season-low 14 rushing yards
by Michael Hurcomb |

Raiders running back Darren McFadden had one of his worst performances of the season during a 41-17 loss Week 10 vs. Denver. McFadden was held to a season-low 14 rushing yards on seven carries, while adding four catches for 22 yards.

The 14 rushing yards was his lowest total since totaling 15 yards on four carries in the season opener. McFadden has just 34 rushing yards in his last two games and is averaging 1.7 yards per carry in that span.

The Raiders are back in action Week 11 at San Diego. McFadden had a season-high 80 rushing yards Week 6 against San Diego.

Long odds for Darren McFadden
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer 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.
