UPDATE: Raiders RBs Darren McFadden, Mike Goodson have high ankle sprain

It's time to get acquainted with Marcel Reece @CelReece45 and Taiwan Jones @TaiwanJonesNFL. They will be carrying the Raiders' running game for a while since both Darren McFadden @dmcfadden20 and Mike Goodson @GoodNplenty33 have been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain. McFadden suffered the injury on the first play from scrimmage of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He was replaced by Goodson after aggravating the injury in the second quarter. Then Goodson suffered the same fate in the third quarter.

Fantasy Analysis:

Reece is expected to operate as the team's lead back going forward. He has just one carry on the season, but he has 26 receptions for 272 yards and one touchdown. He should be added in all 12-team leagues, especially PPR leagues. Jones is a second-year speedster who has just two touches this year, both coming in Week 9. He was on the field for just five of the Raiders' 81 offensive snaps. But the Raiders have almost no choice but to up his workload now. McFadden and Goodson will probably miss at least a couple of games, and McFadden has never been known to be a quick healer.
