Zach Miller Injury Puts Fantasy Football Status In Doubt For Raiders

The Oakland Raiders will likely face the Kansas City Chiefs without Zach Miller. The Raiders TE is listed as doubtful on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Doubtful on these injury reports means it's highly unlikely the player will play. Miller is the Raiders most dangerous passing threat so this is a fantasy football blow if he can't go (which we're assuming he won't).

The Raiders will officially list Miller as active or inactive around 1:30 p.m. (central) today.

The Chiefs have a talented secondary and statistically are about average in the NFL but the Chiefs are a stronger pass defense than the stats indicate.

The fantasy football impact of this will likely be seen with RB Darren McFadden. Without the Raiders top receiving option, they'll be looking to run the ball even more. The game plan was already run-heavy but this likely increases it.

McFadden may be able to expect a few extra carries against the tough Chiefs run defense.
