Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) told reporters after the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins in London Sunday, Sept. 28, that he suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament and high ankle sprain.
Fantasy Tip: Carr will have two weeks to rest with the bye coming up. If he is unable to play in Week 6, Mat McGloin will likely get a chance to start. But that's a ways off at this point.

Fantasy Tip: It was reported during the week that Holmes would have a bigger role with Rod Streater sidelined, and he lived up to the hype. He could be a decent WR4 or flex fantasy play if he continues to produce.

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.

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.

Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson could be candidate to be an interim head coach if the team fires head coach Dennis Allen during the season. The team could consider making a change at head coach during their bye week, according to sources.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is expected to be re-joined by Maurice Jones-Drew in the backfield, but McFadden is projected to get more touches and therefore has more value in FantasyScore. At just $4800 (or 9.6 percent of the salary cap), McFadden could be a solid flex play against a Miami Dolphins run defense which ranks 20th in the NFL by allowing 125.3 yards per game.
