Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs NYJ (9 / 11 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Jones-Drew was bottled up all day outside of a 12 yard carry on third down in garbage time. He saw a large majority of the team's carries but there was no push from the Raiders line and when he did get in space he wasn't making anyone miss. Jones-Drew was destroyed in the backfield on his first carry of the second half and was fortunate that his fumble flew into the arms of Derek Carr. Jones-Drew had one elusive move, on a dump off in the passing game, taking it for ten yards and a first down.

Raiders | Week 3 Inactives (Sun Sep 21, 11:33 AM) - The Oakland Raiders have declared CB Chimdi Chekwa, QB Matt Schaub, OT Matt McCants, RB Maurice Jones-Drew, LB Nick Roach, LB Sio Moore, OG Tony Bergstrom inactive for Week 3.

Our View: Darren McFadden gets the start for Jones-Drew. The Raiders are down two starting linebackers, so Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen's jobs are easier - maybe Rob Gronkowski too.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew out (Sun Sep 21, 09:55 AM) - Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is out for Week 3. RB Darren McFadden is expected to start.

Our View: McFadden is an upside flex play today, but we know his games usually end in disappointment for his fantasy owners.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew questionable (Fri Sep 19, 06:24 PM) - Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Our View: Darren McFadden would be a what the heck flex if Jones-Drew can't go. He showed flashes his old powerful, explosive self against the Texans last week. If MJD goes, the Raiders backfield turns back into a muddled mess.
