News: McFadden had 29 yards on 12 carries and five yards on two receptions in Thursday's 24-20 win over the Chiefs. Impact: McFadden's value took a hit, as his own underwhelming performance was matched by a huge game from Latavius Murray, who left with a concussion after rushing for 112 yards and two touchdowns on four carries in the first half. Murray thus figures to be a big part of the offense when he returns, and he may even get the opportunity to replace McFadden as the starter. Further adding to Run DMC's woes, starting fullback Marcel Reece dominated the fourth-quarter snaps at halfback, finishing with 37 yards on eight carries. McFadden still figures to have some kind of role, but the little bit of upside he once had is essentially gone.(RotoWire, )

News: Though McFadden took first-team reps at practice this week, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that Latavius Murray will get more work than usual Thursday against the Chiefs. Impact: Given that McFadden has combined for 15 carries for 35 yards over his last two games, he's not a high-percentage play this week anyway, with the possibility that Murray sees increased looks after carrying four times for 43 yards this past Sunday, further putting a damper on McFadden's Week 12 fantasy prospects.(RotoWire, )

News: McFadden rushed for just 21 yards on eight carries and failed to haul in any of his three targets in Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Chargers. Impact: McFadden is averaging a mere 1.9 yards per carry over his last three games (28 attempts), with a long over that span of nine yards, and has scored just once in his last eight games. Latavius Murray more than doubled his production on the ground Sunday (43 yards) on four carries, and it would make sense if the Raiders, now 0-10, gave the 24-year-old Murray an expanded role in the weeks ahead.(RotoWire, )

News: McFadden ran for just 14 yards on seven carries and caught 4-of-7 targets in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Broncos. Impact: The game was close in the first half, but McFadden still couldn't get on track. He's really struggled, along with the rest of the Raiders' offense, over the last two games, rushing for a measly 34 yards on 27 carries. Despite the underwhelming performance as of late, Oakland really doesn't have many options in the backfield, so he should once again see the majority of the work next week at San Diego.(RotoWire, )
