Oakland Raiders OT Donald Penn said the team plans to run the ball often in 2014. "We're gonna run the ball, run the ball, then run it again, until the defense stops us," Penn said.
Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew should have ample opportunities to run the ball. However, they're going to need an effective passing game to keep eight defenders out of the box limiting their daylight. The winner of the lion's share of carries should be an RB3 with the second back and Latavius Murray as flex options.

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.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen had an on-field meeting after practice Monday, Aug. 12, with RB Latavius Murray, a day after saying Murray has to be "accountable." He missed the past two practices due to an undisclosed ailment. "Latavius Murray had a couple of good runs," Allen said. "A couple of them got called back because of penalties, but one run down the sideline he ended up being able to lower his shoulder and finish off the run pretty good. I saw some good things, but he wasn't out here today so being available and being accountable are two things that we have to make sure we're able to be."
