When asked if Latavius Murray could be the Raiders' RB1 next season, beat writer Steve Corkran responded, "He looks the part and has all the skills."

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders will have an interesting decision to make at running back. Due to durability issues, Darren McFadden is almost certainly gone, but 2014 free agent Rashad Jennings has played well since taking over as the starter in Week 9. Since then, he is the #5 RB in fantasy, and that includes one missed game due to injury, so he has the #3 PPG in that span. Jennings will turn 29 in March.

Raiders RB Darren McFadden (knee, ankle) took limited practice reps Wednesday. It appears that McFadden may be able to return this week, which might cut into the workload of Rashad Jennings.

Raiders RB Jeremy Stewart (ankle, knee) did not practice Wednesday.

San Francisco Chronicle - [Full Article]

A league source said Raiders running back Darren McFadden (ankle) is feeling better and should play next week in San Diego. McFadden, who has missed 19 of the Raiders' past 39 games, is not having the contract year he envisioned.

Fantasy Impact:

He's expected to be back at practice on Wednesday. It shouldn't matter too much for Rashad Jennings owners heading into Week 16. McFadden should be a clear backup as the Raiders take on the Chargers in Week 16.

While QB Matt McGloin has generally played well since becoming the starter, Sunday was the first time he caused the Raiders major pain.

“It’s tough when a quarterback is going through a learning process,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said. “As the losses mount up, it gets frustrating. It’s frustrating for everybody.”

McGloin threw two interceptions to Chiefs safety Eric Berry, the first of which was returned 47 yards for a touchdown. He threw two more in the fourth quarter, on successive series, the last of which got him benched.

Terrelle Pryor filled in at different times – once near the goal line, again in the third quarter and after McGloin’s fourth pick – as a planned change of pace. Pryor wasn’t much better, and threw an interception in four attempts. He competed one pass for 12 yards and had 19 rushing yards on three carries.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite being pulled, Allen said McGloin start again next week against the San Diego Chargers. Odds are great he’ll also start the season finale against Denver, too. He's a QB2 option as long as INTs don't count against you. He should put up some garbage numbers, most likely trying to bring the Raiders from behind.

Jennings, Moore return for Raiders

Raiders Inactives
Brice Butler WR
Chance Casey DB
Andre Gurode C
Lamar Mady OG
Darren McFadden RB
Jeremy Stewart FB
Vance Walker DT

Fantasy Impact:

Rashad Jennings returns and will get the start at RB. Denarius Moore also returns and will take snaps from Andre Holmes.

Friday, December 13, 2013, 6:50pm

Raiders RB Rashad Jennings (concussion, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. Jennings will play in a mediocre matchup against the Chiefs this week. From Week 9 to Week 13, he was the #2 RB in fantasy football with 596 total yards and four TDs in that span.

Friday, December 13, 2013, 6:50pm

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee, out) has been ruled out for Week 15. Stewart has a torn MCL and is out for Week 15. DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert will see extra work against a tough Jets rush defense (that was gashed by Marcel Reece in Week 14).

Friday, December 13, 2013, 6:50pm

Raiders RB Darren McFadden (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. McFadden is out for at least another week.

Friday, December 13, 2013, 6:50pm

Raiders RB Jeremy Stewart (ankle, knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15.

Friday, December 13, 2013, 6:50pm

Raiders WR Denarius Moore (shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 15. Moore has been out for the last three games, giving Rod Streater and Andre Holmes the chance for extra targets and snaps. He may be back for Week 15. Streater would continue to start, while Holmes would likely go back to a reserve role. The Raiders don’t play until the second round of games on Sunday, so Holmes/Moore owners may have to roll the dice when lineups are due on Sunday morning. Streater is a solid start, but Moore and Holmes both carry risk due to Moore’s uncertain status.

Raiders TE Nick Kasa (concussion, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15.
