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.
