What is his value going forward? He seems to be in favor with the new hard coach, and Darren McFadden has only been effective in one game, plus he's injured.
Fargas is available in my league, and am considering adding him for depth (already have Gore, Jacobs, MJD and J. Stewart), so I wanted to see what others thought of his potential for the rest of the season. Will he get a majority of the carries, or is he bound to be stuck in a RBBC if/when McFadden gets healthy?
As long as McFadden is hurt he should see the majority of the carries. Once McFadden comes back they will go to splitting up the carries. Not sure if you would drop or who you are looking to drop but I think he's worthy of adding to your bench. With the right matchup he could be a good start.
Fargas was dropped in one of my $ leagues this week, would anyone pick him up over Ginn Jr. if you needed RB depth? I have Matt Jones and was waiting out the suspension on the hopes of using him this week, but was planning to drop him for Fargas after this week, any opinions?
Anyways, I hear DMC has a different foot injury now so he may get the start and majority of carries vs Atlanta and future games for Oakland. Assuming Oakland has some success against Atlanta' s bottom 10 rated rushing defense, Fargas could be looking at 20+ carries and the chance at a TD which is nice flex material
Ok with McFad out he should do very well, but look at his stats last week he only scored 2.4 points in my leauge and McFad was out last week. Plus it seems like Fargas is a lil brittle himself this year aswell. The HC does seem to like Fargas and that is a plus for him. I would say pick him up if you are truely desperate.

Both the Jets and the Ravens have stout run defenses, 1st and 4th. However, none of the remaining teams on his schedule through week 16 rank higher than 14th against the run...23rd, 14th, 15th, 30th, 32nd, 20th, and 21st.
