After a bye week, Raiders RB Darren McFadden is "feeling as good as you can this time of year," McFadden said, and he is ready for Pittsburgh.

He had 113 yards in a home win over the Steelers last season and seeks more of the same.

"They'll play physical, but a physical game fits my style," McFadden said. "It's always good. I love running against a physical team. ...

"I am a straight ahead guy. I am not a shaker or anything like that. I'll put a move on here and there, but for the most part I am straight ahead."

Fantasy Impact:

The story points out that the Raiders did a lot of self-scouting and they think they can start getting McFadden and the run game to produce this week and in the future. McFadden ranks 14th this week, a real solid RB2 start against the Steelers in what's considered a good matchup.

Former Colts general manager Bill Polian had an incredibly revealing statement. Polian said that Terrelle Pryor is the most improved player in the league that he has seen. Pryor has opened everyone’s eyes, demonstrated extreme improvement and given Oakland some optimism he can be its quarterback of the future. Now Oakland did have some interest in Josh Freeman, so Pryor has to continue to play well and prove that he is still improving. But so far, the signs are encouraging. He doesn’t look like an elite quarterback yet, but he does look a lot better than most people around the league expected.
