    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray hasn't scored in four weeks and has only averaged 85.6 rushing yards the last three weeks. He could bounce back this week, though, against a Detroit Lions defense allowing 103.6 rushing yards and more than one rushing touchdown per game on the year.

    Huddle Up: Murray is the rare RB with a steady weekly workload, getting at least 16 touches in every game this season, and should be regarded as a low-end RB1 going forward.

  • Posted: 11/13/2015 8:14pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (quadriceps) and RB Latavius Murray (concussion) are both listed as probable for Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings. Both players were full participants in practice Friday, Nov. 13.

    Huddle Up: Murray was the one in real question but it looks like he's good to go against the Vikings. Cooper is a WR1, while Murray is an RB2 this week versus Minnesota.

  • Posted: 11/13/2015 3:56pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) is at practice Friday, Nov. 13, and looks like he'll be able to play in Week 10, barring setbacks.

    Huddle Up: Murray has steadily progressed throughout the practice week, going from out (Wednesday) to limited (Thursday) to full participation (Friday). As long as he receives the final concussion clearance, he'll be a RB2/flex option against the Vikings on Sunday.

  • Posted: 11/13/2015 12:14am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray said he is not dealing with any concussion symptoms and is making progress after his limited practice Thursday, Nov. 12, but he is not sure if he will be able to play against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: It's been a rough last five games for Murray, who's been in and out of the lineup due to health and performance issues. As for his upcoming status for Sunday, we should definitely know more on Friday.

  • Posted: 11/12/2015 9:13am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

    Huddle Up: Murray needs to work through the league's concussion protocol in order to be available for this weekend's tilt with the Vikings. We'll track the situation and update his projections and the Start/Bench Tool accordingly.

  • Posted: 11/10/2015 11:44pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is showing positive signs as he goes through the concussion protocol, according to head coach Jack Del Rio who hopes to have Murray back for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: The league's sixth-leading rusher, Murray has yet to miss a game this season, but we all know the concussion drill and we'll have to monitor practice reports coming out of the East Bay for the rest of the week.

  • Posted: 10/21/2015 8:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (shoulder) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

    Huddle Up: Murray looks to be fully recovered from a shoulder injury that bothered him before the bye week. He's an RB2 against the Chargers this week.

  • Posted: 10/20/2015 4:27pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (shoulder) appears healthy and ready to play in Week 7 after the bye. Murray had 28 touches for a combined 88 yards the last two games after a career-high 139 yards in Week 3. 'It's timing,' said head coach Jack Del Rio. 'You're working on double teams and being able to come off and just some of the little nuances that make the running game go where you do it a little bit better and it turns into an eight-yard gain instead of a three or four-yard gain. It's what you're after - creating the space and the opportunity for our backs. We've had some examples when we've done it pretty well and we haven't been quite as good as we looked to be. The encouraging thing is we've converted enough on third down to have enough opportunities. If you're getting 25, 26 runs in a game you're getting a decent amount of opportunities to run it, so, that's a positive.'

    Huddle Up: It was a tough two weeks leading into the bye for Murray owners, but he's still a solid RB piece to have given the lack of the other true starting-RB options in Oakland. He also is coming back to a rather favorable matchup this week against a Chargers' D which is surrendering the most fantasy points in the league to opposing backs.

  • Posted: 10/9/2015 8:54pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Murray was dealing with a minor shoulder injury but he was never really in danger of missing Sunday's game. He'll be an RB versus Denver's tough defense.

  • Posted: 10/7/2015 10:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.

    Huddle Up: Murray is expected to play Sunday but he has a tough matchup against the Broncos. He'll be a mid-range RB2 this week.

  • Posted: 10/6/2015 7:55pm ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: With 61 yards and a lost fumble on 19 touches, Week 4 definitely was a struggle for Murray, not to mention his worst outing of the season, but only three players -- Matt Forte, Adrian Peterson and Devonta Freeman have more touches than Murray's 82 so trust the volume and better games are sure to come.

  • Posted: 10/4/2015 9:46pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray was benched late in a 22-20 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 4. He finished with 16 carries for 49 yards and three catches for 12 yards and lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Murray had a tough day. He muffed a pass that led to an interception and he fumbled that led to a benching. Fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned though. Murray is the Raiders' lead back. Just chalk it up to a bad day.

  • Posted: 8/28/2015 12:04am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray has been working on his hands in order to improve as a receiver and make himself an all-around player.

    Huddle Up: Murray caught 17 of his 23 targets a year ago for 143 yards, but offseason-addition Roy Helu -- if he ever gets healthy -- projects as the Silver & Black's main pass-catching back. Still, if Murray displays improved hands early, he could see a solid share of the third-down snaps.

  • Posted: 8/6/2015 2:27pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray has taken all of the first-team repetitions and has looked powerful running, according to beat writer Vic Tafur. 'The biggest improvement has been in his explosiveness and his conditioning,' Murray's trainer Vinny Scollo told Syracuse.com. 'Last year, we really had to taper the workouts and work around his injury. This year, his conditioning, his wind, is 100 percent there.'

    Huddle Up: Murray tantalized fantasy GMs with his late-season showing in 2014, and he currently owns a late-sixth-round ADP (59), going 19th overall among all RBs, so there is some value to be had if he winds up being the Silver & Black's no-doubt No. 1 for the season.

  • Posted: 8/1/2015 12:07am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray said he understands how important it is for him to perform well in 2015. 'I know the success I've had doesnÂ’t matter,' Murray said Friday, July 31. 'What matters now is what I [do going] forward and what I do this upcoming season, this upcoming training camp. Again, do anything I can just to get better and help the team.'

    Huddle Up: Murray flashed potential late last season when he got an opportunity and fantasy owners are hoping he'll become the Raiders' primary ball carrier this year. Roy Helu is in the mix for touches too but Murray should dominate the early down work. He currently has a fourth round ADP.

  • Posted: 7/6/2015 3:25pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray performed well during the mandatory minicamp this offseason, according to offensive line coach Mike Tice. Tice said Murray showed good speed and finish during practices.

    Huddle Up: Murray should have every opportunity to claim the Raiders' RB1 gig. If he's able to stay healthy he's demonstrated he has the talent to be successful in that role.

  • Posted: 6/28/2015 1:49am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray has the opportunity to be the team's No. 1 running back in 2015, and it's one he embraces. 'It's a great feeling, but every day I have to go in there knowing I need to get better every day,' Murray explained. 'I need to play like it's a new year. Last season is just last season and the year before that it was the year before that. Every season is a new year for me and it's a year I have to go out and prove something.'

    Huddle Up: A great discussion of the linear progression of time from Murray, who has shown flashes of excellence when he's been able to stay on the field. We'll find out what this new year holds in store for him soon.

  • Posted: 6/12/2015 5:01pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is currently the frontrunner for the starting running back position, according to head coach Jack Del Rio. Del Rio said Murray needs to improve his football intelligence and his versatility.

    Huddle Up: With Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew out of the picture -- and newly signed Trent Richardson not much of a threat -- it's definitely Murray's job to lose. But with all of 82 rushes in two seasons, can the 2013 sixth-round pick handle a full-time load? Meanwhile, don't forget about Roy Helu Jr., though, who should -- at the least -- receive some supplemental carries and a fair amount of targets in the passing game.

  • Posted: 5/19/2015 7:46pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is looking forward to being the Raiders' starting running back in 2015. 'It's a great feeling, but every day I have to go in there knowing I need to get better every day,' Murray said. 'Every season is a new year for me and it's a year I have to go out and prove something.'

    Huddle Up: Murray gained 370 of his 424 rushing yards in the last five games of the 2014 season, averaging 5.2 yards per carry, while all other Silver & Black ballcarriers averaged only 3.2 yards per tote. Still, it's a new offense and new coaching staff and Murray is going to have to prove himself and clearly beat out newcomers Trent Richardson and Roy Helu for the starting gig.

  • Posted: 2/13/2015 8:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray has shown the traits to be a candidate for the starting running back job next season, according to head coach Jack Del Rio. 'I think he has shown enough of the traits to make him a candidate to be that guy,' Del Rio said. 'I don't know that he's earned that yet. He's shown that there is potential there. He's done enough things to pique your interest. He's got size and speed. He can go. There are some things that we will need to work to improve, such as overall awareness and football IQ.' Del Rio said the offensive line can do a better job opening more holes for Murray.

    Huddle Up: The second-year Murray gained 370 of his 424 yards over the final five games and he'll be one of the more intriguing fantasy backs to rank and watch next preseason.

  • Posted: 1/21/2015 5:47pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is likely to be the team's lead back in 2015, and new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave plans tailor his system to Murray's talents. Musgrave has guided a top-10 rushing attack in four of his six seasons as an offensive coordinator. Murray had just 82 carries last year and also added 17 catches and 567 total yards of offense.

    Huddle Up: Murray is easily the most explosive offensive player on the Raiders' roster, so it makes sense to feature him--especially when the alternatives are the likes of Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew. Not being able to figure that out might have been what opened up the coaching vacancies in Oakland. Now the question becomes can Murray hold up to the kind of workload Musgrave gave, say, Adrian Peterson when he called plays in Minnesota?

  • Posted: 1/4/2015 5:32pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray likely will be the team's featured running back next season.

    Huddle Up: Darren McFadden is a free agent this offseason, and Maurice Jones-Drew looks to be at the end of the line, leaving the soon-to-be 24-year-old Murray as the clear heir apparent to the Silver & Black's starting gig.

  • Posted: 12/5/2014 2:18pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray had 112 yards and two touchdowns on just four carries against the Kansas City Chiefs, and the team is excited about what he can provide them down the stretch. "I love the way Latavius runs the football," interim head coach Tony Sparano said. "I like what I've seen, but I've seen (14) carries. I want to see more of them. I'm curious, too. I'm curious just like the fans are curious." Despite Sparano's curiosity, he stated that Murray won't immediately be a workhorse back in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Yeah, Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew will still be involved, but if you've been waiting on Murray and have some RB question marks this week, put him in your lineup and roll with the upside.

  • Posted: 12/4/2014 10:28am ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) has been cleared to play in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers after missing the previous game due to a concussion. However, according to interim head coach Tony Sporano Murray won't be the team's workhorse down the stretch.

    Huddle Up: Great news about Murray being available this week, but there's no reason the Raiders should be giving carries to anyone else as they attempt to evaluate Murray heading into next season. Misguided decisions like this will likely keep the "interim" in Sporano's job title until the Raiders find someone else with the wherewithal to put Oakland's best playmakers on the field in lieu of retreads like Darren McFadden.

  • Posted: 12/3/2014 8:47pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

    Huddle Up: Murray has been cleared to play for Week 14. However, Tony Sparano said he won't be used as a workhorse for the rest of the season. It's hard to believe Sparano has a career .441 winning percentage as a head coach. Apparently instead of getting a better look at Murray, Sparano wants to watch washed up Maurice Jones-Drew run for 2.2 yards per carry. Start Murray but keep your expectations in check.

  • Posted: 12/3/2014 6:19pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, Dec. 3, perhaps indicating that he has been fully cleared from the concussion he suffered in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Keep monitoring this throughout the week, but for the moment he looks on track to play against the Niners on Sunday.
