Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said Tuesday, March 24, that he expects RB Latavius Murray and RB Trent Richardson to compete for the starting tailback job. "I think it will be a competitive situation," Del Rio said.
Fantasy Tip: Murray has just 82 career carries and two touchdowns, but he might be the player with more upside over the disappointing Richardson. It will be a situation worth monitoring in training camp and the preseason. The winner will be worthy of a spot as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play, while the loser of the battle will be nothing more than an RB3 kept around for fantasy depth.

Oakland Raiders QB Christian Ponder agreed on a one-year deal worth $2.5 million, with $1.5 million guaranteed. He'll be reunited with former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave. Musgrave may believe that Ponder has a chance to start over QB Derek Carr.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson has been arguably the most disappointing running back in football over the last year. With Murray and Roy Helu also in the mix, Richardson's fantasy value is minimal. Murray is the favorite to start and Helu should see a lot of work on passing downs. Richardson is a roster filler on fantasy squads for now.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the change in scenary may be good for Richardson, it is tough to see him as anything more than an RB4 or RB5 at this point in his career.

Fantasy Tip: After topping 600 yards and managing at least five scores in each of his first three seasons, Moore became a non-factor last year, finishing with 12 catches for 115 yards in 10 games. A change of scenery could help Moore, but he is not worth drafting in fantasy leagues at this point.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a huge surprised as Schaub has really struggled, the Raiders just signed Christian Ponder and Derek Carr seems to be the quarterback of the future. Even if Schaub gets signed by somebody else, he's one to stay away from.
