Raiders RB McFadden continues to struggle

I told fantasy owners going into this weekend that Darren McFadden had a great matchup but was a risk nonetheless. After all, the Texans did enter the week ranked dead last in the league against the run.

But McFadden has been invisible in the first half, rushing for minus-5 yards on three carries. If he doesn’t turn things around in the contest, fantasy leaguers should bench McFadden and not even think about using him unless he shows some flashes of potential.

What a disappointment.

On a positive note, Steve Slaton has scored twice against McFadden’s Raiders. Those of you who stuck with the smallish back after three poor weeks are now reaping the benefits.
