Andre Brown should see sizable role on return

ESPN - [Full Article]

Andre Brown is eligible to return to action when the New York Giants host the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 10, and running backs coach Jerald Ingram believes Brown will play.

"Andre is definitely going to fit in," Ingram said. "We had plans for him before he got hurt. He's very athletic. He catches the ball well out of the backfield and he runs the ball well and he's got good speed. He's that multipurpose back that can do a lot of things in first, second down and third down."

Fantasy Impact:

Brown has the most upside of any of the Giants RBs, but Peyton Hillis is playing pretty well and Brandon Jacobs had a nice game against the Bears before injuring his hamstring, so the G-Men may rotate their RBs the rest of the way.

Giants RB Andre Brown says he feels "great," is, "ready to go," and expects to play in two weeks against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact:

The Giants have a bye in Week 9. David Wilson has a chance to return Week 10 as well. It all adds up to a pretty crowded backfield if you factor in Peyton Hillis, Brandon Jacobs and Michael Cox who have carried the load while Wilson and Brown have been out.

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.

Steelers TE Heath Miller (not injury related, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 8. Miller is good to go for a matchup with the Raiders.

Raiders RB Rashad Jennings (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 6. It looks as if Jennings is on track to play against the Chiefs. He and Marcel Reece would likely share the work out of the Raider backfield if Darren McFadden can't return for Week 6. McFadden (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 6. McFadden may play in Week 6, though he would be a very shaky start considering his injury history.

Raiders RB Marcel Reece (knee, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 6. Reece will be in the mix for touches against the Chiefs.

Friday, October 11, 2013, 7:17pm

Chiefs WR Donnie Avery (shoulder, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 6. Avery will play against the Raiders. As usual, he's a desperation play at best.
