Darren McFadden will not play again this week. It has now been almost two months that fantasy owners have been without McFadden and it sure is getting frustrating. With the fantasy playoffs starting this week for most, it would have been great to have the option of starting him. Head coach Hue Jackson has said there has been no setbacks and that he thinks he'll be back this season. With McFadden not even practicing on a limited basis, it remains doubtful that he'll see the field at all during the regular season. Hopefully all McFadden owners could see this coming and handcuffed Michael Bush. Do you think Darren McFadden will play at all in weeks 15-17?
The outlook for Adrian Peterson is a little more brighter than McFadden. He will be a game time decision for Sunday's matchup in Detroit. He practiced on a limited basis on Thursday and Friday. If Peterson does play, he will be a really good start against Detroit. Ndamukong Suh is out for the game with his suspension and Peterson averages 99 yards and a touchdown/game against Detroit. Would you feel safe starting AP against Detroit this week?
In other injury news, Jeremy Maclin was downgraded from probable to questionable for this week's matchup against Miami. He has missed the past three games with shoulder and hamstring injuries but it really looked like he would play this week. Maclin travelled with the team down to Miami, so he also will be a game time decision. It would be wise for Maclin owners to have their backup plan ready to spring into action, if the word comes down that Maclin will miss his fourth straight game. Who do you feel is more injury prone, DeSean Jackson or Jeremy Maclin?
