News: McFadden had five yards on three carries and lost two yards on one reception in Friday's preseason game against the Packers. Impact: McFadden hasn't done nearly enough to leapfrog Maurice Jones-Drew, who broke off a 40-yard touchdown run in Friday's game. Jones-Drew has locked down the starting job, and also figures to be more active in the passing game. It's not entirely clear how the goal-line work will be distributed, but history suggests that Jones-Drew is the better bet from in close. If Matt Schaub doesn't shape up, it may be a while before anyone finds out.(RotoWire, )

News: McFadden ran eight times for 27 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game against the Lions. Impact: McFadden's eight touches included three consecutive carries at the goal line, with the last of those going for a one-yard touchdown. Maurice Jones-Drew started and drew two targets, but McFadden was also quite active with the first-team offense. While we can't assume that McFadden will get most of the goal-line carries, it's quite possible that the Raiders favor him for such a role. As the superior receiver, MJD seems to be the favorite for third-down work.(RotoWire, )
