5 Ways the Oakland Raiders Can Keep Darren McFadden Healthy in 2012

Darren McFadden is the single biggest offensive weapon the Raiders have on the roster and keeping him healthy in 2012 is vitally important to the Raiders and their playoff aspirations.

The Raiders were 4-2 in games McFadden started and finished the game in 2011. Without McFadden the Raiders were 4-6.

With a healthy McFadden in 2011 the Raiders scored 27 point per game, but without McFadden the team only scored 20 points per game.

It would appear McFadden is worth at least a touchdown per game to the Raiders as the loss of McFadden was only slightly mitigated by the addition of Carson Palmer in 2011.

Just about any and every statistic that can examined will lead to the same conclusion: the Raiders need a healthy Darren McFadden.
