Fantasy Football News – The report out of Oakland, is that running back Darren McFadden practiced in full today. After week 14’s loss to the Broncos, it was reported that DMC had injured his ankle. So his owners, hoping for a resurrection in the playoffs were sweating bullets, but for now it looks like you dodged one.
FFLockerRoom Take – This is good news for DMC owners. Unfortunately there are not a lot of McFadden owners in the playoffs. But if you were one of the lucky few, he’s got a great matchup against the lowly Chiefs. And if there’s one thing McFadden did right this year, it was play well vs Kansas City in week 8.
This would also mean a big downgrade for Marcel Reece. After running well for the Raiders in McFadden’s stead, Reece saw very few touches in that Thursday night game in week 14. It was a bit surprising as it was DMC’s first game back after missing so much time. None the less, if McFadden is back, Reece becomes almost unplayable at this point.
