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.
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.

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.
