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 8 – Darren McFadden at Cleveland Browns
Last weekend in a 24-13 loss to Arizona, Darren McFadden rushed for 48 yards and a touchdown. It used to be that McFadden was a boom or bust player, largely because of injuries. But in 2014, Darren has found middle ground and been a fairly steady, if not spectacular fantasy player. However, McFadden has a shot at being spectacular in Cleveland on Sunday with the Browns having the worst run defense in the NFL. Start him with confidence, as the worst-case scenario looks to be RB2 numbers.
