Oakland Raiders news, rumors and injuries

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) may be dealing with a serious injury, so owners should look for an update on his status in the next day or two. Crabtree has posted some solid numbers but may be on the sidelines for the time being.

Fantasy Tip: Carr ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is coming off back-to-back strong performances, and he draws one of the best matchups of any quarterback in Week 4. Start him with confidence at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears allowed Seattle Seahawks backup Thomas Rawls ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) to run for 104 yards in Week 3, and Murray ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) should have no problem piling up yards. Start him with confidence at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) seems to be the real thing. Derek Carr looks his way often, and Cooper often comes through. Consider Cooper an every-week starter. He's worth a long look on FantasyScore against the Chicago Bears in Week 4.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr, RB Latavius Murray and WR Amari Cooper gained more passing/rushing/receiving yards in Week 3 than any offensive trio under the age of 25 had gained in a single game in NFL history.
Fantasy Tip: The Raiders offense is proving to be legitimate. Carr, Murray and Cooper are a solid corps to build on, and at least Murray and Cooper have turned into every-week starters.
