HC Dennis Allen 'raved' about 'dynamic' RB Darren McFadden

Bill Williamson, ESPN - [Full Article]

McFadden is one of the most fascinating players on the team. We all know what he has done and what he is capable of. Yes, his career has been adversely affected by injuries. He has missed at least three games in all six of his NFL seasons and a total of 29 games due to injury. HC Dennis Allen has raved about McFadden, who re-signed with the Raiders for one season in March, saying the player has been dynamic. If McFadden has a resurgence, the Raiders' offense could soar especially with Maurice Jones-Drew in the backfield as well.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is one of the more interesting RB battles in the league since both players are talented and the Raider running game was better-than-decent last year with Rashad Jennings toting the ball. We feel Jones-Drew has the ability and the durability to lead the backfield in touches, though it may be an ugly RBBC to start the season.
