Raiders WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Moore looks doubtful for Week 14, so Rod Streater and Andre Holmes would be Sneaky Starts against a very shaky Jets secondary.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he is inclined to stick with Matt McGloin at quarterback for now, without signing off on McGloin for final 4 games.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders have some packages for Terrelle Pryor even if McGloin starts. Seems like the team would like to get as much info as they can on these guys for the future, but it looks like McGloin could start at least in Week 14.

As expected, Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden will play on Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys for the first time since aggravating his strained right hamstring on Nov. 3.

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden's is expected to back up Rashad Jennings. McFadden's return is a concern, but Jennings still looks like a strong low-end RB1 play in a great matchup with a depleted Cowboys rush defense.

Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Cowboys. Over the past four weeks, Rashad Jennings has been the #2 RB in fantasy, so it wouldn't make much sense to send him to the bench. McFadden's return is a concern, but Jennings still looks like a strong low-end RB1 play in a great matchup with a depleted Cowboys rush defense.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (back) and Miles Austin (hamstring) are listed as probable for Thursday’s game against the Raiders.

Raiders WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's Week 13 game against the Cowboys. Rod Streater has amassed 11 catches for 177 yards and a TD (on 17 targets) in two games with QB Matt McGloin. With Moore out, Streater should continue to see a lot of targets.

Rashad Jennings still the RB1 in Oakland

Raiders running back Darren McFadden was taking reps in practice and looking as if he'll be ready to play Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys.

The question is how much McFadden will play based on the production of Rashad Jennings in his absence.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said if McFadden is "fully healthy," both backs would play, but it doesn't sound as if Jennings is taking a back seat to anyone.

"You can't deny Rashad Jennings over the last month of the season has led the NFL in yards from scrimmage," Allen said. "I think he's earned the right and deserves the right to continue to get his carries and touches and we'll still do that."

Fantasy Impact:

Over the past four weeks, Jennings has been the #2 RB in fantasy, so it wouldn't make much sense to send him to the bench. McFadden's return is a concern, but Jennings still looks like a strong low-end RB1 play in a great matchup with a depleted Cowboys rush defense.

Nick Foles claims starting QB job

Eagles HC Chip Kelly said QB Nick Foles is the starter and doesn't need to look over his shoulder if he has a bad game.

Fantasy Impact:

Michael Vick is back healthy and will backup Foles this week against the Cardinals. But the good news for Foles' owners is there is no more worry about Vick taking the job. Vick even said last week that Foles has earned the job the rest of the way. Foles had one awful game against the Cowboys this season but bounced back from that to throw 7 TDs against the Raiders. We've had Foles as a mid-range QB1 in some recent starts and that will likely continue.

Raiders TE Mychal Rivera's being cleared comes as pleasant news considering the head shot he took from Michael Griffin. The hit knocked Rivera's helmet off, and his head then hit the ground.

"(I) went home and felt good, normal. Woke up this morning feeling normal," Rivera said. "Saw the neurologist today, talked to a lot of doctors, and they fully cleared me."

Raiders place-kicker Sebastian Janikowski said he simply isn't finishing his kicks and that there is no problem with holder Marquette King. Janikowski missed field-goal attempts of 32 and 48 yards and has missed seven attempts this season.

After making 49 of his previous 50 attempts from under 50 yards coming into the season, he is 11 of 15 this season.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was well enough to be active and serve as Matt McGloin's backup against Tennessee.

He also had a package of plays the Raiders could have used, but HC Dennis Allen felt it better to give him another week of rest -- hence the use of Marcel Reece as the wildcat quarterback instead of Pryor.

Fantasy Impact:

Something to watch for Thursday against the Cowboys. Pryor won't be a starting fantasy option, but if you're playing McGloin, it could certainly take away from his production.

Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) was just on field running today. HC Dennis Allen will see how that went in regards to his status for Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders are on record as saying Rashard Jennings will continue to get his touches even when McFadden returns, leaving McFadden as a pretty risky option against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, if he is activated. McFadden said he hopes to play but should probably be avoided at least this week.
