Summary

Darren McFadden struggled with injuries for the sixth consecutive season and with production for the second. His 3.3 yards per carry matched his career low from 2012 and he was outperformed by Rashad Jennnings even when he was healthy. McFadden's 10 games played in 2013 was just one below his career average and he's never made it through more than 13. McFadden looked at least a step slower in 2013, a bad sign for a back that relied so heavily on his speed. Three years ago he was an elite back that had trouble staying healthy. He was a threat to take it to the house from just about anywhere on the field and a productive back in the passing game. In 2013 his longest run was 30 yards and he caught a career low 17 passes for 108 yards. While Jennings moved on in the offseason the Raiders acquired Maurice Jones-Drew, who looks to be the favorite to lead a RBBC. (May 4)

Raiders | Unclear how carries will be divided (Mon Jul 14, 11:05 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden and RB Maurice Jones-Drew could struggle while splitting carries this season, according to ESPN.com's Paul Gutierrez. Gutierrez noted that both backs have traditionally performed better later in games, and splitting carries could prevent both backs from finding a rhythm.

Our View: Both McFadden and Jones-Drew are not quite the players they used to be. Age and injuries have caught up to them, so expect the Raiders to split the carries (maybe somewhat evenly) to keep the duo fresh. McFadden has an ADP of RB40 (9.07) while Jones-Drew is coming off the board at RB35 (8.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.
