Raiders hope power scheme benefits Darren McFadden

Vic Tafur on Sulia - [Full Article]

With power scheme, has Raiders coach Dennis Allen seen any signs of the Darren McFadden from couple of years ago?

"We’re really going to get a chance to see in the game," Allen said. "He had limited snaps in the preseason, but he’s looked explosive in practices so far.

"There may be some two-yard runs, there may be some three-yard runs, maybe a four and then boom you pop one. That’s our anticipation, that’s our hope and we’re hoping we can get him a crease and he can break off a couple of big runs."

Fantasy Impact: 

We've said all along that a switch back to the power running scheme will benefit McFadden. The trend this year saw McFadden fall in drafts, so if it holds true and if he stays healthy, (and that's a lot of ifs) he'll turn out to be a great value for your fantasy team.
