Darren McFadden told his fantasy players to start him, and he came through

Last week Darren McFadden told his fantasy players they needed to play him this week, because he was feeling good.  Well he came through just like he said.

Darren McFadden rushed 24 times for 73 yards and two touchdowns, and caught two passes for five yards as the Raiders took down the Steelers 21-18 in Week 8.
McFadden generally didn’t find much room to run, but looked as explosive as he has since 2011 whenever the Raiders’ blocking gave him some space. He looked good and with him healthy the Raiders just became that much stronger.  I think the Raiders can win this week against the Eagles as well.  They could put together a nice little winning streak.
