Raiders running back Mike Goodson worked out before the game in Week 13 but was not active. Coach Dennis Allen said he expected Goodson to play Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

RB Darren McFadden is also expected back for Thursday Night Football, so Goodson figures to back up McFadden and Marcel Reece.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said that he did bench receiver Denarius Moore for performance reasons.

Fantasy Impact:

Moore had some bad drops and finished with only 2 catches on 8 targets. Of more concern is the fact that Moore has now caught only 4 balls in his last 3 games combined after a hot start to the season.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he expects RB Darren McFadden to play Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact:

It was speculated that McFadden was ready Week 13, but the team kept him out due to poor field conditions because of the rain prior to the game. McFadden would be a tough start because he takes on the Broncos on Thursday night. Marcel Reece should be involved behind McFadden.

McFadden & Goodson remain out for the Raiders in what looks to be a sloppy affair. Marcel Reece will once again carry the load. Terrelle Pryor is active for the first time this season but it remains to see if he will get any playing time.

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.
