Raiders Beat: HC Tony Sparano 'believes in' RB Darren McFadden

Saturday, October 11, 2014, 2:01pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Raiders beat writer Bill Williamson: Expect Darren McFadden to continue to get more opportunities after a slow start to the season. McFadden has just two 10-yard runs in 2014. However, new interim Oakland coach Tony Sparano said he believes in McFadden and thinks he is running with a purpose. Sparano is a run-first coach and he said that's the approach he is going to take with the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden should see 14 or so touches, which has been his average through four weeks. He is our #32 RB in standard formats heading into Week 6.

Scouting Report

Week 7 – Darren McFadden vs. Arizona Cardinals
Continuing to operate as Oakland’s clear-cut lead back, Darren McFadden rushed for 80 yards on 14 carries last weekend. However, McFadden does not get the volume other lead backs get and Arizona has a top five run defense. For owners with roster issues, McFadden can be plugged in as a flex. If your team is in pretty good shape, it would probably be best to keep Darren on the bench.
