Raiders RB Darren McFadden is pretty good. McFadden, like Redskins RB Ryan Torain, was one of those guys who worried fantasy enthusiasts. McFadden because of a late-season swoon. But like Torain, McFadden offered a bit of redemption for those who showed faith in the Raiders running back.
A number of football experts felt that RB Michael Bush was the guy who was going to take over the top spot for the Raiders. So much for that.
McFadden provided the best of all possible worlds on Sunday, scoring a ton of fantasy points while the Raiders lost. McFadden scored 40 points in most formats, and easily advanced some owners to the next round of the fantasy playoffs. Well, unless Aaron Rodgers is your quarterback.
