Raiders’ McFadden out vs. Chargers

For the second straight game, Raiders RB Darren McFadden¬†(foot) will be relegated to the sidelines — this time, missing Thursday’s game against the Chargers. In his place, Michael Bush¬†will start for Oakland. Last week, Bush gained 129 total yards with a touchdown against Denver. This week, he faces a San Diego squad that has allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Add to it that running backs generally haven’t fared well in the first Thursday night game of the year and it doesn’t look good for Bush. If you’re hurting for someone at the flex position, consider Bush. But there are likely better options available for this week.
