Raiders | Raiders to split carries without MJD

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:15:59 -0700

Oakland Raiders RBs Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray will both receive a crack at the running back duties in Week 2 against the Houston Texans with RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) unlikely to play, according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson. The Raiders only had 25 yards rushing on 12 carries in Week 1 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden and Murray will each cost only the minimum for running backs ($3,700) at FantasyScore this weekend. How they'll be used is anyone's guess at this point. Consider both backs weak flex options against the Texans.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew likely out

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 05:32:38 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is expected to miss the Week 2 game, according to multiple sources. Jones-Drew had a small bandage covering a surgical site below his index finger, and his hand was swollen Thursday, Sept. 11. He said he didn't break his hand, however, multiple sources have reported that he did break his hand. He's not expected to miss a lot of time.

Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) becomes a great bargain on FantasyScore against the Houston Texans this weekend. Latavius Murray should see some action as well, at the same fantasy price tag.

Raiders | Plan to run it often

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 07:56:12 -0700

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.

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.
