Darren McFadden RB OAK 5 Days

McFadden rushed for 54 yards on nine carries and added one catch on two targets for zero yards in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Bills.

Latavius Murray did the heavy lifting, wearing down the Bills' front seven during the first half, allowing McFadden to find some running room late (41 yards on final four carries). McFadden's 25-yard rush in the fourth quarter was his longest since Week 2 of last season. He'll continue to serve in a complementary role behind Murray in next Sunday's finale against Denver.

McFadden had just four carries for five yards in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Meanwhile, rookie Latavius Murray (concussion) returned from a one-game absence to rush for 76 yards on 23 carries. It looks like McFadden will be somewhat phased out of the offense, as long as the speedy Murray is healthy.

McFadden had 11 carries for 27 rushing yards and two catches on two targets for 18 receiving yards Sunday against the Rams.

With Latavius Murray sidelined with a concussion, McFadden once again led the backfield, though he failed to rush for even 30 yards for the fifth consecutive game. The Raiders' running game is a mess and it doesn't figure to get any better in Week 14 against a 49ers defense allowing the seventh-fewest rushing yards per game this season.

McFadden, Maurice Jones-Drew and Marcel Reece are all expected to see work Sunday against St. Louis with Latavius Murray (concussion) ruled out, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

It sounds like the Raiders will start off with a three-headed attack on the ground Sunday, but interim coach Tony Sparano said the carries will then be doled out based on "flow" of the game and the situation. McFadden has averaged under 2.7 yards per carry in each of his last four games and Jones-Drew has been equally ineffective this season, so it would make sense if the team looked to get Reece heavily involved against the Rams. All three figure to give way to Murray once he's cleared.

McFadden had 29 yards on 12 carries and five yards on two receptions in Thursday's 24-20 win over the Chiefs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

McFadden ran for just 14 yards on seven carries and caught 4-of-7 targets in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Broncos.

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 a lot of options in the backfield, so he should once again see the majority of the work next week at San Diego.

McFadden had 13 carries for 20 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 30-24 loss at Seattle.

The Raiders fell behind by 21 points at halftime, so they had to abandon the run in the second half, limiting McFadden's chances as a ball carrier. Meanwhile, Maurice Jones-Drew was a complete non-factor, losing two yards on two carries. The veteran McFadden should see most of the work again next week, although he'll have his hands full with a solid Broncos' defense.

McFadden rushed for 59 yards on 12 carries and caught four passes on six targets for 26 yards, but also lost a fumble in Sunday's 23-13 loss to the Browns.

McFadden certainly had some success on the ground with 4.9 yards per carry, his second-best mark of the season, but his fumble in the third quarter put an end to a 12-play, 71-yard drive and completely swung the momentum in the Browns' favor. It's likely to be overlooked by the coaching staff, however, with Maurice Jones-Drew managing just eight yards on his six carries and McFadden also doing a fine job with his six targets, but McFadden's short-term outlook is bleak with Seattle due up.
