Raiders, Darren McFadden meeting to talk contract

McFadden set to hit free agency: Most observers don’t expect Darren McFadden to be back in a Raiders uniform next season. That doesn’t mean the Raiders aren’t trying. The team and McFadden’s agent will reportedly meet this weekend to discuss a potential new deal. Still it seems unlikely that the veteran back will return to Oakland next season after failing to reach 700 rushing yards in two of his past three seasons. The obvious landing spot would seem to be the Cincinnati Bengals and a reunion with former Raiders head coach Hue Jackson. That’s probably the best case scenario for the perennially injured back to revive his fantasy value.

Wilson ahead of schedule: The reports on David Wilson’s rehab from spinal fusion surgery continue to be positive. The latest update is that Wilson is progressing well and expects to be ready for training camp. When healthy, the young Giants rusher is a dynamic talent — both on the field and in fantasy. However, it would make sense for the Giants to take things slowly with Wilson’s recovery and it is likely that he will remain on plenty of draft boards until the middle rounds.

Davis suspended indefinitely: Tight end Fred Davis has been suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. This is the second time Davis has been flagged under the policy. Combine that with Davis’ recent injury history and the emergence of Jordan Reed and it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which the former USC standout remains in Washington.
