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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: This is a promising sign that Murray will be able to play this weekend, but nothing is set in stone yet, of course. His FantasyScore price of $5,600 could be risky if he's limited at all.

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.
