Most standard Fantasy Football Leagues have a trade deadline that is quickly approaching. The purpose of this article isn’t just to give you an idea of who to target if you’re in the market for a trade, but also to give you confidence or terror (depending if the guy is on your team or playing against you) for the final stretch of play.
Me personally, I’m on a four game losing streak. I started the season off dominant in first place. Four losses later. I’m a middle of the pack playoff team. Sucks.. Unfortunately, I don’t have any of these guys except one, and he might be my riskiest choice of the five…
Hit the jump to check ‘em out….
5.) Darren McFadden – RB – Oakland Raiders
My wildcard/injury pick. Assuming Run DMC comes back this weekend, he could save you from total humiliation for drafting him. Look – he’s the most player on the team. The owner told him to talk to the coaches about getting the rock, and his schedule is a thing of beauty. I’m not saying this is a lock, but there are a lot of positive factors.
4.) Cam Newton – QB – Carolina Panthers
I begrudgingly put Cam Newton on this list. Look, he’s been pretty crappy so far. He’s took good to be THAT crappy so I expect an upward trend. Carolina’s schedule also looks real good for Cam. They’ve got Oakland, Tampa, Philly, New Orleans.. Cam should be ready to pile it up going forward even though he’s a d-bag.
BEST OF MAXIM
While his season on the field has been a struggle, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton did kick-off a student initiative program with a $150,000 donation to three schools.
According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle, to no ones surprise, Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden (ankle) didn’t practice today.
No surprise. No McFadden at practice.

At this point of the season, I’m not looking at the glass half full, or half empty. I’m just wondering who drank my beer. For the first time this season, I failed to watch the entire Raiders game. After the 3rd quarter, my heart just could not take it anymore. I had to turn it off. I knew how it [...]
The Buccaneers took the first meeting against the Carolina Panthers this season by a score of 16-10 at Raymond James Stadium. Since then, the Panthers are ranked 10th in the NFL for most sacks with 25. Tampa Bay’s offensive line will be tested. Keep Josh Freeman from hitting the turf The Buccaneers are 11-3 when quarterback Josh Freeman has a passer rating of 100 or more. In...
Oakland Raiders running backs Darren McFadden and Mike
Goodson, who are each dealing with high ankle sprains, continued to sport
walking boots during Wednesday’s practice. Coach Dennis Allen termed both
players questionable to suit up in time for Sunday’s contest against the New
Orleans Saints, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller and defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson reportedly were fined a total of $36,000 for separate hits on Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton last Sunday. Miller was fined $21,000 hitting Newton low on a roughing-the-passer penalty, the Denver Post reported Thursday. Vickerson was fined $15,000 for his horse-collar penalty while sacking Newton...
Given some of the matchups on tap for Week 11 and the myriad injuries affecting the quarterback position, fantasy owners took long, hard looks at Ryan Fitzpatrick and Ryan Tannehill for the kickoff to Week 11 in Buffalo. Their time would have been better spent writing letters to Santa Claus.
Sure, Tannehill threw a touchdown pass to Davone Bess, and I guess that the deep ball intercepted...

Since then, Oakland hasn’t offered up a timetable for his return and haven’t even ruled him out for Week 10, even though the consensus is that he miss Sunday’s game against the Saints.
High-ankle sprains typically require 2-4 weeks...
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting that Oakland had expected running back Darren McFadden to miss 2-to-4 weeks after he suffered a high ankle sprain Week 9 against the Buccaneers.Fantasy Spin:McFadden missed last week's loss in Baltimore and is unlikely to play Sunday against the Saints. Look for Marcel Reece to get the start at running back for the 3-6 Raiders.
The most promising aspect of the Carolina Panthers remaining schedule is that thereisn'ta Manning left on the slate.
They have come and gone, leaving the Queen City with emphatic victories. Eli and the New York Giants took apart the Panthers 36-7 on a Thursday night in mid-September, and this past Sunday, Peyton and the Denver Broncos cashed in on defense and special teams to...
