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.

Del Rio: More carries for Latavius Murray in '16
Raiders coach looking to give RB more touches than last season
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 16, 9:26 am

Oakland Raiders
San Francisco Chronicle reporter and Raiders beat writer Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) on Twitter: "Del Rio wants Murray to have more carries than last year. Even w/ addition of Washington. Will be more carries to go around. #Raiders" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Del Rio's admission that one of the Raiders' goals this season -- for Latavius Murray to finish with even more carries than he had last year -- should give the talented, explosive young back some added shine in upcoming fantasy drafts. He's in a good spot for increased production and makes sense as third-round selection.


Will DeAndre Washington have a significant role?
Raiders giving rookie reps with first team

"Latavius did have to carry a majority of the load, so it will help," offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said of adding a complementary back. "I think we have a really good stable of runners right now. Someone will emerge." (East Bay Times)

FFToday's Take: The Raiders made it clear this off-season they were interested in improving their running back depth. The only acquisition they made was adding rookie DeAndre Washington who could be inline for a significant role, perhaps forming a RBBC with Latavius Murray. Murray's not likely to duplicate his numbers from last season if Washington can prove he's capable at this level. Washington is worthy of a late-round pick in redraft leagues.
