Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden and RB Maurice Jones-Drew could struggle while splitting carries this season, according to ESPN.com's Paul Gutierrez. Gutierrez noted that both backs have traditionally performed better later in games, and splitting carries could prevent both backs from finding a rhythm.
Fantasy Tip: It will be interesting to see how the carries will ultimately be divided between McFadden and Jones-Drew, and it could end up being the unfortunate situation where the lead-back role changes hands on a weekly basis. Both players are backup options at the RB spot for fantasy purposes.

Oakland Raiders OT Donald Penn said the team plans to run the ball often in 2014. "We're gonna run the ball, run the ball, then run it again, until the defense stops us," Penn said.
Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew should have ample opportunities to run the ball. However, they're going to need an effective passing game to keep eight defenders out of the box limiting their daylight. The winner of the lion's share of carries should be an RB3 with the second back and Latavius Murray as flex options.

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.

The Oakland Raiders agreed with free-agent RB Maurice Jones-Drew (Jaguars) on a three-year deal. He's set to take a physical Friday, March 28, and sign the deal later in the day.
Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew will have to split carries with Darren McFadden, which could keep them both healthy. They also could cancel each other out in fantasy. Jones-Drew has the consistency, but McFadden could have the burst. Monitor this timeshare in camp, but we see both as weak RB3s right now.
