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.

Raiders | Latavius Murray has 56 yards in finale

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 21:22:31 -0800

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.

Raiders | Latavius Murray runs well

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.

Raiders | Tough sledding for Latavius Murray

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 17:27:29 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray carried 22 times for 59 yards and had one catch for 23 yards in a 24-21 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has underwhelmed the last three games, and there is a chance that he is wearing down in his first season as the feature back. His slump could continue with matchups against Kansas City and Denver on tap the next two weeks.

Raiders | Rough outing for Latavius Murray

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 16:17:12 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray had 13 carries for a season-low 28 yards and a touchdown in an 18-13 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Murray continues to dominate the carries in Oakland, but his production has been inconsistent. He has failed to reach 50 rushing yards five times, and he could deliver a dud for fantasy owners on any given week.

Raiders | Latavius Murray due for rebound?

Tue, 17 Nov 2015 11:57:31 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray hasn't scored in four weeks and has only averaged 85.6 rushing yards the last three weeks. He could bounce back this week, though, against a Detroit Lions defense allowing 103.6 rushing yards and more than one rushing touchdown per game on the year.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup is certainly there for Murray ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) to have one of his better games of the season. His recent production may scare owners away, but he's worth strong consideration on FantasyScore if not just for this week.

Raiders | Latavius Murray active

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 12:30:48 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) is active Sunday, Nov. 15, against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Murray may not be given his usual amount of playing time after suffering a concussion next week, but he's still starting. The Vikings have been solid versus running backs this year, though, so expectations should be lowered.

Raiders | Latavius Murray expected to play

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 07:45:15 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) is expected to play in Week 10's game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) passed all of his concussion tests and was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 13, after participating on a limited basis Thursday, Nov. 12. He could be worth a gamble in FantasyScore as a RB2 against a Minnesota defense ranked near the middle of the pack in terms of rushing yards allowed (111.6 yards per game).

Raiders | Amari Cooper, Latavius Murray probable

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 15:41:38 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (quadriceps) and RB Latavius Murray (concussion) are both listed as probable for Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings. Both players were full participants in practice Friday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has been a rookie sensation at wideout and continues to be heavily targeted by Derek Carr. Cooper will remain popular for daily lineups. Murray ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) looks to be cleared from the concussion protocol this week and could be an under-the-radar value play on FantasyScore against an overrated Vikings run defense.
