Raiders | Two expected to compete for starting RB job

Oakland Raiders RBs Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew are expected to compete for the starting running back job during training camp. The loser of the competition is still expected to receive plenty of carries during the season, because the team wants to keep both players healthy and fresh.

Fantasy Tip: Both players have dealt with injuries in the past, but they should be healthy for training camp. The winner of the competition probably should be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back in most leagues. The loser of the competition likely will still see a good amount of carries in 2014 and could be a handcuff or a later-round running back for owners.
