Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) appears to be on track to play in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos. He has caught at least five passes in three of the first four games of the season and is coming off an 80-yard performance in Week 4. He will be facing a tough Broncos defense but could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) should have a good chance to play against the Denver Broncos in Week 5, but owners should continue to monitor the situation to see if he suffers any setbacks. Murray will be facing a solid Broncos defense but should be considered a starting option.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on Murray's ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) practice participation during the week to see if he will play in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos. Murray had a great Week 3 performance and three other solid performance and could still be a starting option even though he is dealing with a tough matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) suffered the injury during the last game, so owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he will be able to play in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos. Crabtree has played well this season but may not be the best option because he is dealing with a tough Broncos defense.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is the only rookie receiver doing anything at all through the first four games, and it helps that he's paired with a young quarterback making strides in his second season. However, a matchup with the stout Denver Broncos secondary in Week 5 makes Cooper a weaker play on FantasyScore.

Should Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr complete 30 passes in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos, it would be the fourth time doing so in his career. That would be the most of any quarterback through his first two seasons in NFL history.
Fantasy Tip: Carr ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) will certainly have his work cut out for him if he is to achieve this feat. The Broncos have been stellar on defense this year and have wreaked havoc on opposing quarterbacks. Invest in him at your own risk.

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray still has the confidence of head coach Jack Del Rio, despite a rough outing in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears. Murray accounted for two turnovers for Oakland, but Del Rio still believes in his young running back. "I remain confident. We have some good young players. None of us are perfect. We all are capable of making mistakes," Del Rio said. "I think the sooner you own up to mistakes, the quicker you can put them behind you and move forward."
Fantasy Tip: Murray had been one of the better running backs in the NFL prior to Week 4. He's still one of the Raiders' most dangerous weapons, but he'll have to improve his ball protection. The Denver Broncos, Oakland's Week 5 opponent, have allowed 90.2 rushing yards and less than one rushing touchdown per game, so Murray ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) may not be the most valuable play on FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) also bobbled a pass that turned into an interception and left temporarily with a shoulder injury, so it was a rough day all around. That being said, he should remain a viable starting option at FantasyScore as long as he is receiving a bulk of the carries.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) returned to Week 4's game against the Chicago Bears in the second half, after he suffered an ankle injury during the first half.
Fantasy Tip: Obviously, Crabtree's ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) injury was not as serious as it initially appeared. He finished the game with five receptions for 80 yards and should be good to go for Week 5's contest against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Murray ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) should be fine moving forward. Murray likely will receive a majority of the carries as long as he is healthy and is a solid starting option.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:12:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Murray ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) will be able to return to the game or if he is out for the game. Roy Helu ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely would see a majority of the work if Murray misses any playing time.
