Raiders | Darren McFadden goes distance (Sun Sep 28, 11:37 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden carried 11 times for 40 yards in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London, while RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) carried twice for just one yard. McFadden also had four receptions for 32 yards, while Jones-Drew had two catches for only two yards.

Our View: McFadden has "what the heck flex" value as the best back in this backfield, but Jones-Drew is clearly on the decline and can be dropped - at least for as long as McFadden is healthy.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew very limited (Sun Sep 28, 11:36 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) was active in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London, but he was limited to just two carries for one yard and he had two catches for two yards.

Raiders | Oakland RBs likely 50-50 split (Sat Sep 27, 07:55 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden and RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) are likely to receive a 50-50 split of the carries in Week 4, in the opinion of beat writer Vic Tafur.

Our View: Making neither a good play. If you need to cut someone to field a full lineup this week, your Raiders running back is a good choice, even though McFadden was playing better than his numbers so far this year.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew probable (Fri Sep 26, 06:34 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 4.

Our View: Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden will split the workload in an already limited Oakland offense, making both simply desperation plays in London against the Dolphins.
