Raiders RB Darren McFadden on track to play; WR Denarius Moore out again


Raiders RB Darren McFadden on track to play; WR Denarius Moore out again

The Raiders will probably have their full complement of running backs available against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, but they will remain short-handed at wide receiver. Darren McFadden @dmcfadden20 is officially listed as questionable, but is tentatively expected to be active for the first time since suffering another hamstring injury on Nov. 3. However, Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings will remain Oakland's lead runner after gaining 553 yards from scrimmage while McFadden was injured.
Speaking of injured, wide receiver Denarius Moore @DenariusMoore is, and he has been ruled out for Week 13 and hasn't practiced since suffering an unspecified shoulder injury 10 days ago.

Fantasy Analysis:

Please don't be worried about putting Jennings in your lineup this week. It sounds like McFadden will be on the field to just give Jennings a breather. And considering how well Jennings has played this month, that's how it should be. The Cowboys' run defense is embarrassingly bad and gave up more than 200 rushing yards to Andre Brown and Brandon Jacobs last week. Jennings is a solid RB1.
The Cowboys' pass defense is just as bad -- they have allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks -- and Rod Streater @rodstreater80 is in the WR3 range after he caught five passes for 93 yards against Tennessee's good pass defense last week. Moore has 10 days to get ready for a Week 14 matchup versus the Jets.
