Darren McFadden Fantasy Football Superstar With Big Day Vs. Jaguars

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden is off to a fast start against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Oakland faces a must-win and they're doing their part as they lead 24-14 in the third quarter.

But it's McFadden that's blowing up.

He now has 11 carries for 78 yards including a 51-yard touchdown run. He also has three receptions for 86 yards including a 67-yard touchdown catch. So that's two plays, 118 yards and two touchdowns. There's still plenty of time in this one so fantasy football players are salivating at the numbers he can put up, which are already big.

The Raiders haven't been able to do a whole lot offensively outside of McFadden's two runs so he's been very important.

The Raiders need to beat the Jaguars to stay in the AFC West race. A Chiefs loss to the Chargers would put the Raiders just one game out of first place in the AFC West.
