Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) will undergo baseline testing for his concussion Tuesday, Nov. 25, according to a league source. He is feeling good, but he must go through the league's concussion protocol before being cleared for Week 13 against the St. Louis Rams.
Fantasy Tip: Murray's FantasyScore price shot up to $5,600 this week because of his big Week 12 performance, but if he's questionable against the Rams, he'll be a big risk. We likely won't find out until later this week whether he'll be cleared to play this weekend.

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) remains a question mark heading into Week 13 against the St. Louis Rams. Head coach Tony Sparano said Murray hasn't passed the league's concussion tests yet. "Right now he's involved in the middle of it," Sparano said. "We'll see where he is by tomorrow and have a pretty good idea what's going on for Wednesday. As you know these things take time or they can be very fast. It just depends on the player and the severity." Murray did not practice Monday, Nov. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Murray should now be owned in all leagues after his big Week 12 performance. If he's cleared to play against the St. Louis Rams, he should see a decent amount of touches - enough to make him a flex option at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he is able to practice later in the week. Murray is coming off a big game in Week 12 and likely will be more involved in the offense moving forward.

Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece earned more carries after his performance in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 20. Reece rushed for 46 yards during a crucial 17-play, 80-yard drive late in the game. Interim head coach Tony Sparano said he could envision using Reece as the primary running back again.
Fantasy Tip: Reece doesn't figure to see enough of a role to be a worthwhile option on FantasyScore.

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) has earned himself a larger role in the offense, according to interim head coach Tony Sparano. His concussion, obviously, will dictate when that plan will be put into motion. "The way he ran the ball today he earned more snaps, no doubt about it," Sparano said. "We just have to see how he comes out of this thing."
Fantasy Tip: Murray, who had 112 yards and two scores on four Week 12 carries, could actually take the lion's share of the carries from Darren McFadden when he returns to action. Look for him to potentially be a solid buy as a flex option on FantasyScore upon his return.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was in the middle of the breakout performance that included a 90-yard touchdown run before being injured. He could be a player to watch going forward if the Raiders continue to increase his workload.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was enjoying the best game of his career prior to taking the blow so stay tuned for updates on his status.

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has done a good job of bringing the team out of salary-cap troubles and ushering in a talented draft class, according to owner Mark Davis. Davis said McKenzie is not an interim general manager.

Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry (foot), CB Travis Carrie (ankle), S Jonathan Dowling (back) and CB Carlos Rogers (knee) have been ruled out for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. OG Gabe Jackson (knee) is questionable, while LB Miles Burris (hip) is probable. Ausberry, Carrie, Dowling and Rogers didn't practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. Jackson (knee) was limited, while Burris practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Carr injured his quad early in Week 11 against the San Diego Chargers and played the rest of the game, so it shouldn't be an issue heading into Week 12 Thursday night. A short week against a tough divisional opponent in the Kansas City Chiefs isn't the best time to use Carr ($3,800) at FantasyScore, though, despite his appealing price.

Fantasy Tip: Carr should be fine to take the field Thursday, Nov. 20, but a matchup against a tough Kansas City defense makes him a poor option at FantasyScore in Week 12.
