Redskins | WAS unlikely to pursue Latavius Murray

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 16:58:37 -0800

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray is not expected to be an option for the Washington Redskins during free agency, in the opinion of CSNMidAtlantic.com's Rich Tandler.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is not expected to return to the Raiders but should receive interest from a few teams during free agency. He may not be able to find a starting job but should have a solid role with a team in 2017. He probably should be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back at this point. Rob Kelley likely will be the starter for the Redskins and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 back for fantasy owners.

Raiders | Latavius Murray expected to leave Oakland

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 11:43:43 -0800

Impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray is unlikely to return to the Oakland Raiders when he officially hits the open market next month.

Fantasy Tip: An earlier report suggested "the door will remain open" for Murray to return, but the fact the Raiders are willing to let the market set his price means the odds of that are slim. Murray is not a difference-making talent, but he's a capable power back with 74 catches over the last two seasons despite losing a ton of reps to DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard in 2016. Teams like the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers could be interested if his financial demands aren't too high.

Raiders | Latavius Murray could still return to OAK

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 08:48:39 -0800

Although the Oakland Raiders are expected to let RB Latavius Murray reach free agency, the door will remain open for a possible return to the organization after he tests the market, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The 27-year-old Murray had 788 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in 14 regular-season games last year and should be viewed as a RB2 in most fantasy formats. If he does not return to Oakland, expect the Raiders to use a committee of DeAndre Washington, Jalen Richard and Taiwan Jones in the backfield in 2017.

Raiders | Competition for Latavius Murray?

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 18:07:25 -0800

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray will have interest from multiple teams, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan, and Caplan believes the market for Murray could make it difficult for Oakland to re-sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has been the workhorse for Oakland the last two years, and if he returns, he should be a high-floor, volume-based RB2.

Raiders | Latavius Murray may not return

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 13:35:20 -0800

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray is not expected to be re-signed, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders have a deep backfield as is and they can afford to let Murray go even with his recent success. DeAndre Washington, Jalen Richard and Taiwan Jones will make up the Raiders' backfield for now. Washington has the most promise, but this should end up as a committee.

Raiders | Latavius Murray saw touches drop in 2016

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 15:33:00 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray recorded less carries and receptions in 2016 than he did in 2015. Murray had 195 carries and 33 receptions this season while recording 266 carries and 41 receptions in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Murray will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so there is a chance he will be playing for a new team in 2017. He finished in the top five in touchdowns with 12 and may be able to find a starting job with a team. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues depending on his offensive role.

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 22:43:49 -0800

The agent for Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray has had talks with the team about a contract extension. Murray has said he'd like to stay with the team that drafted him.

Raiders | Latavius Murray could see more work

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 17:43:25 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray hasn't been receiving enough work, according to head coach Jack Del Rio.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders may be forced to rely on Murray in the wild-card round of the playoffs with Matt McGloin or Connor Cook starting. The Pittsburgh Steelers have been vulnerable against the run this season, too, making Murray a favorable option in fantasy playoff leagues.
