Raiders | Latavius Murray should play

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:39:35 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 5, and is listed as probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Murray should receive some carries this week but will share the workload with the other running backs. Murray costs $4,800 on FantasyScore but is a risky flex play because of his big-play ability.

Raiders | Raiders excited about Latavius Murray

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 09:29:29 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray had 112 yards and two touchdowns on just four carries against the Kansas City Chiefs, and the team is excited about what he can provide them down the stretch. "I love the way Latavius runs the football," interim head coach Tony Sparano said. "I like what I've seen, but I've seen (14) carries. I want to see more of them. I'm curious, too. I'm curious just like the fans are curious." Despite Sparano's curiosity, he stated that Murray won't immediately be a workhorse back in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers. It's likely that RBs Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew will see significant touches this weekend, but Murray will likely have an increased workload than what he's seen in the past.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for those itching to use Murray ($4,800) at FantasyScore, this probably isn't the week to do it. McFadden ($3,800) should continue to see most of the work, but if he's sharing touches in what now may be a three-headed monster, we don't recommend him for daily lineups.

Raiders | Latavius Murray a full participant

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 15:57:48 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 4, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has been cleared to play against the San Francisco 49ers, but he won't be the workhorse back for the team. That'll make him hard to trust at FantasyScore as a flex play for $4,800, as he's likely to share touches with Darren McFadden ($3,800).

Raiders | Latavius Murray won't be workhorse

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 05:31:17 -0800

Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray won't be the team's workhorse down the stretch, according to interim head coach Tony Sparano.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($4,800; 9.6% of your cap) carries some risk as a flex option on FantasyScore because the team is down a lot. His fantasy breakthrough game a couple of weeks ago teased his potential, though.

Raiders | Latavius Murray cleared to play

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 20:04:58 -0800

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) has been cleared to play in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers after missing the previous game due to a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($4,800) has the most upside of the team's running backs, but he remains risky since we don't know what kind of workload he'll have against the 49ers. San Fran has been vulnerable on the ground of late, but you should consider Murray a shaky flex play, at best, at FantasyScore.

Raiders | Latavius Murray limited in practice

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 17:05:34 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Murray burst onto the scene with a strong Week 12 performance against Kansas City in a Thursday night game, but then was inactive last week. Give him a game to prove his health before plugging him back into the FantasyScore lineup.

Raiders | Latavius Murray back at practice

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 13:58:38 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, Dec. 3, perhaps indicating that he has been fully cleared from the concussion he suffered in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking more and more like Murray will be able to play this week. He is a cheaper option at $4,800 on FantasyScore. However, the matchup isn't too favorable against the San Francisco 49ers, who have given up six rushing touchdowns through 12 games.

Raiders | Latavius Murray won't play

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 13:40:23 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) will not play in Week 13 after failing the final test of the concussion protocol Friday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden ($3,800, 7.6%) may be pretty cheap on FantasyScore, but his opponent, the St. Louis Rams, has only given up six rushing touchdowns through 11 games and McFadden has been lackluster all year.

Raiders | Latavius Murray limited again

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 13:35:51 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on Murray ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) before you lock him into your lineups. His price climbed $2,600 in FantasyScore contests this week. The price hike and injury concerns add risk to Murray's sock.
