News: McFadden had 11 carries for 40 rushing yards and four catches for five targets for 32 receiving yards Sunday against the Dolphins. Impact: Maurice Jones-Drew returned from his hand injury, but McFadden still got a majority of the carries, as the former had only two carries for one rushing yard and two catches for two receiving yards. Neither were particularly effective and the Raiders got blown out, forcing them to abandon the run fairly early (they trailed 24-7 at halftime and 38-7 after three quarters). The head out on bye in Week 5 and it's entirely possible they could share the backfield workload when they return in Week 6 against the Chargers, which limits both of their fantasy upsides.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Dennis Allen indicated that McFadden is in line to make his third straight start at running back Sunday against the Dolphins, ESPN.com reports. Impact: That said, Maurice Jones-Drew is on track to play for the first time since suffering a hand injury in Week 1 and figures to see his share of touches Sunday as well. The report notes that McFadden is getting the start based on the fact that he has had more practice time than Jones-Drew of late, but we suspect that the end result will be some form of Week 4 backfield time-share.(RotoWire, )

News: McFadden had 18 carries for 59 yards in Sunday's 16-9 loss at New England. He also caught four passes on four targets for six yards. Impact: It looked like McFadden tied the game in the final minute with a touchdown run, but there was a holding penalty on the play. Meanwhile, Latavius Murray and Marcel Reece combined for just four carries, so it's pretty obvious that the Raiders are going to feature the veteran McFadden, as long as Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is out.(RotoWire, )

News: With Maurice Jones-Drew inactive, McFadden is in line for an expanded workload Sunday against the Patriots. Impact: Latavius Murray and fullback Marcel Reece could also factor in Sunday, but at this stage, it looks like McFadden will head the Raiders' Week 3 rushing attack.(RotoWire, )

News: McFadden will start for Maurice Jones-Drew, who will miss Oakland's home opener against the Houston Texans with an injured right hand. Impact: McFadden had four carries for 15 yards in Week 1. He has one 100-yard game in his last 13.(STATS, 2:33pm)
