RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu will be the starting running back for the Redblacks in Sunday's Eastern Final matchup with the Eskimos.

Madu did not play in the Redblacks' regular season finale with the team's playoff positioning already set, and he also got more rest thanks to a first-round bye, so he should be plenty fresh Sunday having not played in over three weeks.

Madu is not on the depth chart for Friday's game against the Blue Bombers.

Madu has been the Redblacks' primary ball carrier for a few weeks, but he will be held out of the Redblacks' regular season finale with the team's playoff positioning set. Travon Van is set to start at running back this week in Madu's place.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu carried the ball 21 times for 125 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-10 win over the Blue Bombers.

He also added one catch for eight yards. Since taking over the starting job six games ago, Madu has amassed 490 rushing yards and three TDs, and should have a lock on the top role in the Ottawa backfield next season if he returns to the club.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu gained 85 yards and scored a touchdown on 15 carries and added 29 yards on three receptions in Friday's 39-36 overtime loss to the Ti-Cats.

Madu continues to excel since donning a Redblacks uniform, with his two-yard second-quarter scoring plunge marking his second touchdown of the season. The 28-year-old has between 66 and 91 yards in four of his five games and has become a key ground component of the Ottawa offensive attack. He figures to continue serving as a key contributor in the key Week 19 tilt against the Blue Bombers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu totaled 66 yards on 14 rushes and added 39 yards on five receptions in Friday's 30-29 victory over the Ti-Cats.

Madu has done a solid job since being inserted into the starting lineup, averaging 4.9 yards per tote while also contributing 10 receptions. The 28-year-old's five grabs Friday were a season high as well, as he continues to serve as an effective complementary cog in the Redblacks' attack. While the offense figures to remain pass-heavy despite the loss of standout Chris Williams (knee) for the season last week, Madu figures in for some solid production as long as he retains the starting tailback role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu carried the ball 15 times for 75 yards while adding two catches for 21 yards in Friday's overtime loss to the Roughriders.

Despite talk before the game that Travon Van would split carries in the Ottawa backfield, Madu saw 17 touches to Van's one and seems to have a firm hold of the Redblacks' starting job.

Madu will split carries with Travon Van in Friday's game against the Roughriders, the Ottawa Sun reports.

Madu is coming off an impressive performance against the Lions, rushing for 48 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in the barnburner road loss. A starter has yet to be named for this game, but nonetheless, the expected timeshare makes this situation worth avoiding.

October 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu tallied 48 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries and added 16 yards on three catches in Saturday's 40-33 loss to the Lions.

The tailback put together a second straight solid performance as the starter, although he received less rushing opportunities overall in what turned out to be a shootout. Madu has totaled 139 yards on 27 carries and Saturday's score in the last two games. He's expected to remain the starter while Travon Van (undisclosed) is on the injured list.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu carried the ball 16 times for 91 yards while adding one catch for 34 yards in Friday's win over the Argos.

It was an impressive Ottawa debut for Madu, who benefited from a relatively conservative game plan by the Redblacks. Expect him to remain the starter next Saturday on the road against the Lions.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu will start at running back in Friday's game against the Argonauts.

Madu has not suited up since signing with the Redblacks in late June, but he will get a chance to show what he can do this week -- and possibly beyond -- with Travon Van (undisclosed) on the six-game injured list.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Madu signed with Ottawa on Monday, Drew Edwards of the Hamilton Spectator reports.

Madu hasn't played in a professional football game since the 2011 NFL season, when he was a rookie for the Tamba Bay Buccaneers. Since then, the former Oklahoma running back has bounced around with several teams, most recently the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Now that he's a Redblack, he'll compete with Kienan Lafrance, Patrick Lavoie, and Travon Van for game snaps.
