Raiders running back Darren McFadden left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden has already missed two games with the same injury, and as the story pointed out, it probably wasn't a good sign he was immediately ruled out upon re-injuring the hammy. It's said to be in the same spot as the previous injury.

After a bye week, Raiders RB Darren McFadden is "feeling as good as you can this time of year," McFadden said, and he is ready for Pittsburgh.

He had 113 yards in a home win over the Steelers last season and seeks more of the same.

"They'll play physical, but a physical game fits my style," McFadden said. "It's always good. I love running against a physical team. ...

"I am a straight ahead guy. I am not a shaker or anything like that. I'll put a move on here and there, but for the most part I am straight ahead."

Fantasy Impact:

The story points out that the Raiders did a lot of self-scouting and they think they can start getting McFadden and the run game to produce this week and in the future. McFadden ranks 14th this week, a real solid RB2 start against the Steelers in what's considered a good matchup.

McFadden (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 6.

Raiders running back Rashad Jennings suffered a hamstring injury in the first half, and he wasn't able to finish the game.

Jennings started in place of Darren McFadden.

Marcel Reece rushed seven times for 32 yards once Jennings left the game. Reece could be in line for a big bump in carries if both Jennings and McFadden are out again in Week 6. The Raiders have a tough matchup at KC next week, though.

It’s likely the Raiders must push on without RB Darren McFadden in the short term. That switches focus to Rashad Jennings, who would take over as feature back.

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden said he'd rather miss a game or two to ensure he's good for the long term, and since that was a direct quote it seems very doubtful McFadden plays this week - although he's not officially ruled out yet. Two games would take him right to the Raiders bye week, so it would be plenty of time to get the hammy back to full strength. Those games would include this week against San Diego and next week against Kansas City.
