Raiders HC Dennis Allen was asked if RB Darren McFadden (shoulder) will play in the season-opener. "Absolutely."
Allen didn't know if RunDMC would play on Thursday but there seems to be no doubts he'll be ready to go Week 1. McFadden should benefit from the Raiders going back to a power running game, but McFadden isn't getting a lot of love in drafts and often slips due to injury concerns. He's currently ranked 23rd among our backs with an ADP of the fourth round.
