Darren McFadden slated to start Week 4

ESPN - [Full Article]

At running back, Oakland coach Dennis Allen told reporters in London on Friday that Darren McFadden is in line to make his third straight start, but Maurice Jones-Drew is probable to play for the first time since suffering a hand injury in Week 1. McFadden is getting the start based on more practice time.

Fantasy Impact: 

It most likely doesn't matter a whole lot who the starter is because it doesn't necessarily mean McFadden will get the bulk of the work. MJD, assuming he plays, is very likely to factor in as well which means it's committee situation. It's a good matchup against the Dolphins, but we see both backs more of RB3 or flex options at best.
