Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden should be active for week 6 but will play a backup role to Michael Bush this week. McFadden missed last week’s game with a bum hamstring but he has healed enough to get back into action this week. Bush is coming off a 100-yard plus game last Sunday and the coaching staff feels he is the better player to start this week.
Analysis: McFadden opened up the door to Bush by getting hurt yet again and now Bush wont go away. This has to be very frustrating to fantasy football owners of McFadden as it looked like they had a star on their hands until he got injured. Bush is very talented himself and so we might return to seeing the two split carries which hurts both their values.
