Darren McFadden needs to get back into football shape

Raiders OC Greg Knapp also said that FB Marcel Reece will be used primarily as a halfback Sunday, while Darren McFadden gets back into football shape.

Fantasy Impact:

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

Raiders RB Darren McFadden is at practice once again. Looking good for Sunday's game.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

The Contra Costa Times - [Full Article]

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.''

Fantasy Impact:

It sounds as if Reece will have a role in the running game regardless of the status of McFadden or Goodson. He should remain a flex start, especially in PPR formats where his receiving skills are even more valuable.

Darren McFadden, Mike Goodson return to practice

Raiders RB Darren McFadden is practicing, along with Mike Goodson

Fantasy Impact:

Their level of participation is not yet known, but it appears possible that one or both RBs will play in Week 13 in a good matchup with the Browns. Marcel Reece may go back to his role as pass-catching specialist if McFadden is deemed healthy enough to carry a big workload.

San Francisco Chronicle - [Full Article]

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.)

Marcel Reece had 74 yards rushing and 29 receiving, and rookie Jeremy Stewart showed some nice wiggle, as he had seven carries for 26 yards and six catches for 37 yards off the bench.

The Raiders are hopeful RB Darren McFadden is back for Bengals game.

Fantasy Impact:

Marcel Reece would fill in again if McFadden can't go, and it's another pretty good matchup for whoever the starter is at RB.

Tyvon Branch S
Mike Goodson RB
Darren McFadden RB
Lucas Nix G
Terrelle Pryor QB
Richard Seymour DT

Fantasy Impact:

Darrius Heyward-Bey is active for the Raiders, but is a risky fantasy start after suffering a hamstring injury in practice this week. Marcel Reece will continue to hold things together at RB.
