Raiders | Darren McFadden goes distance

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 20:37:10 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden carried 11 times for 40 yards in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London, while RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) carried twice for just one yard. McFadden also had four receptions for 32 yards, while Jones-Drew had two catches for only two yards.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden received a majority of the touches in the Oakland backfield before the team mostly abandoned the run with a lopsided score in the second half. For now, McFadden has more fantasy appeal between the two backs.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew very limited

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 20:36:31 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) was active in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London, but he was limited to just two carries for one yard and he had two catches for two yards.

Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew was a non-factor, and the team went away from the run with the game out of hand. He was unable to get into a rhythm, but he will now have two more weeks to rest with the bye in Week 5. He should work his way into a split in carries with Darren McFadden, but wait to see that actually play out before plugging him back into the active fantasy lineup.

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 08:43:38 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is active Sunday, Sept. 28, for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: MJD and Darren McFadden are expected to have a 50-50 split this week. It's probably best to find other options until this situation reveals a clear front runner.

Raiders | Oakland RBs likely 50-50 split

Sat, 27 Sep 2014 16:55:05 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden and RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) are likely to receive a 50-50 split of the carries in Week 4, in the opinion of beat writer Vic Tafur.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden ($4,800; 9.6% of your cap) and Jones-Drew ($4,900; 9.8%) cancel each other out a bit as it could be a toss-up as to which one will be valuable enough to start on FantasyScore.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew probable

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 15:34:32 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew was not able to play in Week 3 because of his hand injury but should play this week. Jones-Drew costs $4,900 on FantasyScore, but probably is a risky play since he will be sharing work with Darren McFadden.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew expected to play

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 10:17:25 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) practiced in full Thursday, Sept. 25, and appears primed to play in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London. It was his first full practice since injuring his hand in Week 1. Jones-Drew will likely have a big role, along with RB Darren McFadden, against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew will cost you $4,900 (9.8% of cap) at FantasyScore. It's unclear exactly what the split will be in the backfield between MJD and McFadden, so relying on either running back as more than a flex is a risky proposition.

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) remains limited in practice, according to head coach Dennis Allen. Jeff Darlington anticipates Jones-Drew will play in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew says he'll play

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 08:21:35 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) said Wednesday, Sept. 24, on NFL Network's NFL AM, he will play in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: MJD is a shaky play in fantasy until he proves otherwise, but you can look to him as a flex option. He is a cheap $4,900 (9.8% of cap) on FantasyScore, which makes him more appealing.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew out

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 06:55:07 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is out for Week 3. RB Darren McFadden is expected to start.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden doesn't have a great matchup against the New England Patriots. He's still worth of considering as a flex with his $4,800 (9.6% of your cap) FantasyScore price tag.
