Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said they're going to "limit the times that we ask [Darren McFadden] to do some of the things that he may not be as good at."
In other words, the Raiders are going to play to McFadden's strengths in 2013. The first step was ditching OC Greg Knapp and his zone-blocking scheme. Oakland has since hired Greg Olson to fill that role, and he is expected to take the lateral running out of the offense. "We're really going to look at the things that McFadden does really well and we're going to try to ask him to do those things as much as possible," said Allen. McFadden will be playing in a contract year in 2013.
