Raiders RB Darren McFadden, QB Terrelle Pryor leave Sunday's blowout due to injury


Raiders RB Darren McFadden, QB Terrelle Pryor leave Sunday's blowout due to injury

It was just an ugly afternoon for the Raiders. Sure, most of the blame can be put on their non-existent defense, but that was compounded by injuries to two critical offensive players.
Running back Darren McFadden @dmcfadden20 left the game in the second quarter due to a hamstring strain. McFadden missed a game earlier this season with a right hamstring injury, and he said Sunday that this latest injury deals with the same hamstring in "just about the same spot pretty much." McFadden said he was "sore" and referred to the injury as a "tweak." He finished the day with six touches for 15 yards.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor @TerrellePryor headed to the locker room during the fourth quarter with a knee injury. However, Pryor said after the game that he wasn't concerned about his ability to play next week and called his departure "precautionary." Pryor threw for 288 yards and two interceptions, but he saved his fantasy line with 10 rushes for 94 yards.

Fantasy Analysis:

Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings and Matt McGloin @McGloinQB11 replaced McFadden and Pryor, respectively. The Raiders were right to play it safe with Pryor; this game was way out of hand when he left. He should be fine for Week 10 against the Giants.
McFadden, however, is a completely different story. We all know his injury history and how hamstring injuries are inconsistent when it comes to healing. Jennings racked up 176 total yards and a score on 22 touches against the Eagles. He should be added in most leagues and could be a nice flex play versus the Giants. He is not a special athlete at all, but touches are touches.

Would you start Rashad over Danny Woodhead or DeMarco Murray in the flex spot next week? Woodhead has been consistently average all year, and Murray's not shown much since Week 3... but I don't really like leaving either on the waiver wires for someone else.
