Look for Bush to start in Week 5

The Oakland Tribune reports that Darren McFadden (hamstring) missed Thursday’s practice. He’s looking like a long shot to play in Week 5.

That’s good news for fantasy owners who have Michael Bush, as he’ll step in and start against the Chargers. A talented runner out of Louisville, Bush has value as a borderline No. 2 fantasy back or flex starter.

If you need a one-week option, he’s still a free agent in close to 37 percent of NFL.com leagues.

In other Raiders news, wide receivers Louis Murphy (clavicle) and Darrius Heyward-Bey (groin) are both practicing this week. Barring a setback, Murphy appears safe to start in fantasy leagues.
