2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Latavius Murray took over as the Raiders’ starting running back in 2015 and did enough to keep that role going forward. While many believed that veteran Roy Helu would be a big part of the offense, particularly in the passing game, that turned out to be far from the truth. While Helu was a deep afterthought, Murray touched the ball an impressive 307 total times, including 41 receptions. While his yards per carry tumbled over an entire yard per carry, that is to be expected when a player touches the ball as often as Murray did.

While Murray was a top 10 back in 2015, there is a real opportunity for him to expand on those numbers here in 2016, considering the Raiders only added a fifth-round draft pick to the running back mix this off-season. After being one of the most explosive backs in the league in 2014, Murray took a big step back in that department in 2015, which led to him finish with more than 100 total yards just three times on the season. However, Murray kept his subpar games at a reasonable level and the Raiders have been investing in their offensive line in recent seasons including this off-season when they acquired former Baltimore offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele who is expected to play guard in Oakland. While he doesn’t have the big name appeal of some of the players being drafted ahead of him, Murray is among the safest picks on the board, especially where he is being taken (Rd3/4). He’s an ideal RB2 for season-long leagues and has real RB1 upside, especially if he can just get a few more opportunities near the goal line.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Latavius Murray returns to practice
Tailback has missed last two weeks with toe injury
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 19, 2:49 pm

Oakland Raiders
Running back Latavius Murray has returned to practice. (Raiders.com via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Latavius Murray is on the mend and could suit up as early as this weekend. His status for this weekend will likely depend on whether he can get in a full practice before the end of the week so monitor his progress over the next couple of days. Once cleared, Murray figures to retain his status as the team's top fantasy running back, albeit with limited upside in Oakland's RBBC trio with DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard.


Injury Latavius Murray misses practice Friday
Expected to miss Week 6
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 14, 1:30 pm

Oakland Raiders
Yes, the Raiders are practicing in the rain. But running back Latavius Murray and right tackle Menelik Watson are not among them. Again. They are likely OUT vs. the Chiefs on Sunday, when it's supposed to rain. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It's shaping up to be the DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard once again with both backs splitting the workload against the Chiefs. Given the RBBC, its difficult to trust either players as anything more than a flex option in Week 6.


Injury Latavius Murray ruled out for Week 5
Turf toe
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 7, 5:30 pm

Oakland Raiders
The Raiders will be without Latavius Murray against the San Diego Chargers, as their leading rusher was ruled out Friday with a toe injury. “Latavius is the smartest one we have in terms of pass protection,” offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said. (San Jose Mercury News)

FFToday's Take: With Murray out, DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard are expected to share work in the backfield with Washington having a slight edge in fantasy value. The Chargers have given up the third most fantasy points to running backs mostly due to six rushing TDs allowed.


Injury Latavius Murray doubtful for Week 5
DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard to split time
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 5, 10:00 pm

Oakland Raiders
Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray, who injured his right foot in Sunday's 28-27 victory at the Baltimore Ravens and was wearing a protective boot on Tuesday and Wednesday, is doubtful to play Sunday at home against the San Diego Chargers, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard are likely to split carries against the Chargers with Washington being the lead back in the committee. Both are worth a look in Week 5 against a Chargers defense giving up the second most fantasy points to running backs.
