Raiders RB Darren McFadden is averaging 3.3 yards per carry -- the NFL's third-lowest mark among qualified players.

"We certainly want to get Darren going and we haven't really been able to get it on track on a consistent basis," HC Dennis Allen said.

Jonathan Stewart has ankle setback

Panther HC Ron Rivera said Jonathan Stewart had a setback with his ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact:

It sounds like Stewart is unlikely to suit up this week. DeAngelo Williams will again be the lead back with Mike Tolbert in the mix. The Panthers get a Saints team who has been improving against the run lately. Williams is an unreliable flex play. Last week he managed only 19 rush yards on 10 carries against the Raiders after having a long TD called back early.

"Cracked ribs and a bruised lung" shown on CT scan for Raiders QB Carson Palmer.

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Leinart will get the start Week 17. Terrelle Pryor should also get some snaps in certain situations against the Chargers.

Jonathan Stewart, Brandon LaFell return to practice

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart practiced on a limited basis Friday. WR Brandon LaFell (toe) was full participation and is probable.

Beat writer Joe Person said he thought Stewart "probable" to play in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact:

If Jonathan Stewart can play, it will put a dent in the upside of DeAngelo Williams, who was shaping up to be a sneaky start against the Raiders. As for Brandon LaFell, he's a shaky start given the fact that he didn't see a single target in Week 15.

The Contra Costa Times - [Full Article]

Second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be used on some third-down and red-zone plays against the Panthers so that the Raiders “can create a different look the defense to contend with” and “try to use some of his athletic ability.”

Pryor played one series last Sunday against the Chiefs. The series consisted of two hand-offs and an incomplete pass from Pryor to wide receiver Darrius Hewyard-Bey.

Fantasy Impact:

This certainly puts a small dent in the already shaky Week 16 value of Carson Palmer.
