Darren McFadden Fantasy News
RBs Darren McFadden & Mike Goodson active for Raiders
Thursday, December 6, 2012, 7:08pm
RBs Darren McFadden & Mike Goodson return to the lineup tonight. McFadden is expected to get starter work. Marcel Reece is banged up, but will also be in the mix. It's a tough matchup and a muddy situation. We'd steer clear if possible. McFadden was averaging only 3.27 YPC before his ankle injury.

Darren McFadden needs to get back into football shape

Don't expect a full workload for McFadden. Reece will get 5-10 carries and his normal work in the passing game. He's probably the better start since this is McFadden's first game back. The Browns are a good matchup for RBs.
Darren McFadden "looking good" for Week 13

HC Dennis Allen said that Marcel Reece has "earned the right to carry the ball some," so it sounds as if Reece will have a role in the running game regardless of the status of McFadden or Mike Goodson. He should remain a flex start, especially in PPR formats where his receiving skills are even more valuable. McFadden probably won't get a huge workload, but could make some noise in a nice matchup against the Browns.

Both Raiders RBs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson were limited, and while it's not known if either will play, or how much, coach Dennis Allen said fullback Marcel Reece has staked his claim to some more carries.
While both backs were out, Reece carried 48 times for 225 yards in three games, averaging 4.7 yards per carry.
"Marcel has earned the right to carry the ball some,'' Allen said. "We'll use him in that capacity.''

Teammates expect Raider running back Darren McFadden to return this week, after he missed his third straight start Sunday with a high ankle sprain.
His fill-ins didn't fare too badly, as they ran for 73 yards in the second half. (Why they ran the ball so much down 24 points is another question.)
