Raiders | Latavius Murray set to be No. 3 RB

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 12:36:58 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray seems to be the team's No. 3 running back at this point in the offseason behind RBs Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew. RB Kory Sheets has also been playing well, though. "We're looking for big things from Latavius Murray right now, coming off the foot injury. He's shown, to me, the biggest upside right now in what we've seen thus far, if he can stay healthy," offensive coordinator Greg Olson said.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is an intriguing option in the backfield for the Raiders, but as long as McFadden and MJD are healthy and playing, he won't have much fantasy value. With that said, we all know McFadden's long injury history, and Jones-Drew has plenty of wear on the tires. Remember Murray's name in-season if one of the top two running backs go down.

Dolphins | Kory Sheets wants to show versatility

Tue, 20 Jul 2010 14:27:02 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Kory Sheets is looking to prove to the team that he is more than just a fast running back, reports Omar Kelly, of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Sheets said, "I want to prove I can do other things outside of run and catch the ball. I want to prove I'm an every down back. That's been my main focus." Sheets will need to stand out during training camp and the preseason now that RBs Ronnie Brown (knee) and Patrick Cobbs (knee) are healthy. However, there are some things Sheets needs to do better, such as his pass blocking. Head coach Tony Sparano said, "We've talked to him at the end of the year about ways to get better and to improve. I've seen some improvement. (Blocking) will separate some of the backs, and certainly with Kory that will be some of the deciding factors down the road, how he handles that." Sheets will need to compete with Cobbs and RB Lex Hilliard for one of the final roster spots.
