Fantasy Tip: Carr looked much improved coming off his bye week against the San Diego Chargers in Week 6. He's not a bad option for FantasyScore players looking to save a little loot at the position.

Fantasy Tip: With McFadden looking like the clear No. 1 back, an increased emphasis on the run game should boost his value going forward. He probably isn't a great play at FantasyScore in Week 7 when the Raiders face the third-ranked run defense of the Arizona Cardinals, but McFadden could turn into a useful option when the matchups are favorable.

Fantasy Tip: Carr will start in the game but should not be a starting option in any league this week.

Oakland Radiers RB Maurice Jones-Drew has just 11 carries for 12 yards in two games this season, but interim head coach Tony Sparano said he wants him to share the load with RB Darren McFadden. "I'd like Maurice to take a little bit greater role, maybe get some snaps off of Darren," Sparano said. "If we could, keep them both fresh that way, but we also have got to be running the football and doing some things that way too."
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Jones-Drew will be eating into Darren McFadden's carries with Sporano taking over, and the situation is worth watching going forward. However, neither back is a great option at FantasyScore in Week 6 against the ninth-ranked run defense of the San Diego Chargers.
