Oakland Raiders: 16 Bold Predictions for Darren McFadden in 2012

When Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden takes his first ever handoff from Carson Palmer, it'll be the start to a sensational season.

Because McFadden suffered a Lisfranc injury in the first game after the Raiders traded for Palmer, the two haven't played together.

Here is how each week will transpire for McFadden.

You might say it's a bold prediction in itself that the tailback won't miss a big chunk of playing time if his foot malfunction acts up or he incurs another injury.

Well, crazier things have happened. If he does indeed sit out games, act like those weeks' prediction don't exist. There, problem solved.
