NEWS: Darren McFadden has edge over Maurice Jones-Drew?

According to, Raiders RB Darren McFadden “has the starting edge” over Maurice Jones-Drew.

SMITTY: Both Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew have plenty of skill, but MJD has some milage concerns, and D-Mac can’t stay on the field. If either back was given starter carries, they might actually surprise, but counting on either rusher as anything more than a high-upside RB3/4 would be a mistake.

NEWS: Maurice Jones-Drew the starter in Oakland?

According to Vic Tafur on Twitter, it would be surprising if Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew wasn’t the RB1 in Oakland entering 2014.

SMITTY: While this is almost a situation we’d recommend staying away from entirely, Maurice Jones-Drew could make for a decent flex-type player in 2014 if you can get him cheap enough. His ADP is somewhere near the 7th, while Darren McFadden’s is near the 8th. Both aren’t crazy-high, but that doesn’t make it a predictable situation, that’s for sure. If forced to predict value here, I say MJD – for now.
