    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Posted: 11/28/2014 5:54pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray will not play in Week 13 after failing the final test of the concussion protocol Friday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Despite the extra few days of recovery time, Murray will be unable to go Sunday in St. Louis, leaving the RB duties to the non-productive Darren McFadden-Maurice Jones-Drew duo.

  • Posted: 11/27/2014 5:55pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: The outlook remains positive for Murray, but he still has one more step to pass in the concussion protocol. That decision likely will come Friday.

  • Posted: 11/26/2014 4:05pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) was back at practice Wednesday, Nov. 25, though his participation status was undisclosed.

    Huddle Up: He's still not in the clear yet, but it's a solid sign pointing toward Murray playing this Sunday in St. Louis.

  • Posted: 11/25/2014 3:49pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: The extra couple days of recovery time might make all the difference for Murray, who's one of this week's hottest waiver-wire commodities.

  • Posted: 11/24/2014 4:26pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) is not participating in practice Monday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Murray is going through the NFL's concussion protocol. He should be the Raiders top back once he's cleared to play. Murray is the top waiver wire pickup this week if he's still available.

  • Posted: 11/21/2014 11:12am ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: There is no logical reason for the Raiders to give carries to any back other than Murray once he's back from his concussion. Neither Darren McFadden nor Maurice Jones-Drew are in the club's future, so why not see what Murray brings to the table and get a good look at what the club needs to add around offensive cornerstones Derek Carr, Andre Holmes, and Murray?

  • Posted: 11/21/2014 1:51am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray left in the second quarter of the game Thursday, Nov. 20 with a possible concussion and didn't return. He finished with a game- and career-high 112 rushing yards and two touchdowns on four carries.

    Huddle Up: Murray, a 2013 sixth-round pick, has shown recent flashes and burst out in a big way, thanks mainly to his 90-yard scoring burst early in the second quarter that propelled the Silver & Black toward snapping their 16-game losing streak. Murray suffered his injury on a helmet-to-helmet shot on a run soon after, but he's likely earned himself the lead RB role going forward given the disappointing seasons Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden have had for the league's worst rushing team. That is, of course, if the injury isn't anything more serious than a typical concussion. McFadden rushed for 29 yards on 12 carries in the game, while the ghost of MJD had three rushes for minus-1.
