It’s likely you drafted Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden and Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte with high expectations, only to be let down by their performances this season. Hopefully, they will come clutch for you when it matters most. Both backs have returned to practice this week and are looking likely to play on Sunday.
The only problem for fantasy owners is both players are also returning to action after their back ups have performed extremely well during their absence. Marcel Reece hasn’t posted less than 10 fantasy points in four straight weeks, and Michael Bush rumbled his way to 17.90 points last week behind a two touchdown effort. McFadden hasn’t played since Week 9 and Forte hasn’t scored since Week 9. Keep tabs on their status tomorrow and hopefully either one or both will be named the clear-cut starter, making fantasy life much easier for those of you in the playoff hunt.
