Raiders | Latavius Murray may receive more work

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 14:08:57 -0700

Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said he would like RB Latavius Murray to receive more carries than he did last season.

Fantasy Tip: Murray received 266 carries last season and should be able to handle more this season. He should be a focal point for the Raiders this season and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Raiders | Latavius Murray having strong camp

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 17:35:04 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is "cruising" through training camp, according to beat writer Vic Tafur.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was one of just seven running backs to top 1,000 yards last year, and while he doesn't have a huge ceiling, he should have a safe floor as a mid-level RB2.

Raiders | Latavius Murray practices

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 11:27:57 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray returned to practice Friday, Aug. 5, after he sat out Thursday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is a middling RB2 who posted a nice season through volume in 2015 by staying healthy and starting 16 games. The numbers were underwhelming, though. Murray averaged just 4.0 yard per carry with only six touchdowns, and he'll have to hold off the explosive DeAndre Washington for work in 2016. Murray offers a modest fantasy floor with a limited ceiling.

Raiders | Oakland doesn't have need for RB

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:58:00 -0700

Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said the Raiders don't have a glaring need for another running back with RB Latavius Murray in the picture. There has been talk this offseason that general manager Reggie McKenzie is looking for help in the backfield. Oakland ranked 28th in the run with 91.1 yards per game and just 3.9 yards per carry in 2015. Del Rio said any new running back Oakland adds will have a chance to compete for carries. "We would like to add somebody in the backfield at some point, but it's not like it's a glaring need," Del Rio said. "We do have a good player there."

Fantasy Tip: Murray topped 1,000 yards in his sophomore campaign and totaled six touchdowns. With Oakland's offense only improving, Murray's upside remains strong, but the Raiders may prefer to keep him fresh as much as possible. Because of that, he's more of an RB2 than RB1 for 2016.

Raiders | Less work for Latavius Murray?

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 16:30:35 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray could be more efficient in 2016 with a lighter workload. Head coach Jack Del Rio said Murray is still growing as a player and he can still work on some things that will make him even better next season.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was one of only seven running backs to eclipse 1,000 rushing yards last season. He added six touchdowns to that milestone. Unfortunately, fumbles were an issue and he did have to carry a heavier workload compared to other starting running backs in the league. Fewer touches don't necessarily mean less production, though. Murray should still be regarded as a RB2 in the fantasy realm.

Raiders | Latavius Murray to have company?

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 18:45:54 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray could have company in the backfield in 2016. ESPN's Adam Caplan believes the Raiders will be looking to add running back depth in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Murray topped 1,000 yards last year, but his production varied wildly from one game to the next. He has a chance to be a solid RB2 in 2016, but his value could change dramatically if Oakland brings in another quality back.

Raiders | Latavius Murray coming off career year

Mon, 18 Jan 2016 11:07:32 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray gained 1,865 total yards, including over 1,000 rushing yards, and six touchdowns this year in his second season in the NFL. Murray said the 1,000-yard season is exciting, but he knows there's a lot more for him to do.

Fantasy Tip: Murray came through in what was expected to be a breakout campaign for him, en route to being one of only seven running backs to rush for 1,000 yards. He was one of the few bright spots for the Raiders, and he should be viewed as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 heading into next season.

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray rushed 11 times for 31 yards in the Week 17 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, and he added four receptions for 25 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Murray totals 1,066 yards and six rushing touchdowns to emerge as a low-end RB1 or must-start RB2 in 2015. He will be a decent early-round fantasy option with a chance to continue his improvement in 2016.

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 21:29:29 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray carried the ball 19 times for 79 yards and a touchdown and six catches for 62 yards in a 23-20 win over the San Diego Chargers in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Murray went over 1,000 yards for the year, but he has just two 100-yard games and hasn't showed much upside despite a steady workload. He is a matchup-dependent option at FantasyScore.

Raiders | Latavius Murray goes nowhere

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:19:13 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray carried the ball 16 times for just 27 yards in the Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos. He was targeted once and did not have any catches.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has been solid at home, but he has struggled on the road, rushing for 59 or fewer yards in each of his past three away from O.co Coliseum. The good news is he is home in Week 15 facing a Green Bay Packers rush defense which was trampled by former Raiders RB Darren McFadden in Week 13.
