Raiders new OC Musgrave impressed by Latavius Murray
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/20/15) New Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave told reporters during a conference call Tuesday he likes what he's seen from running back Latavius Murray.
"I have a very positive impression," Musgrave said. "He has tremendous size and speed. He had a super career (at Central Florida). I’m looking forward to getting on the field and finding out what he’s all about and what his strengths are so we can tailor our run game so it’s right up his alley."
Murray totaled 82 carries for 424 yards with two touchdowns in 2014, despite only seeing significant work in the last five weeks of the season.
Raiders' Latavius Murray gets it done through the air Week 17
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) Raiders running back Latavius Murray found a way to make an impact despite a poor day on the ground.
Murray carried the ball 10 times for 37 yards. His longest run of the day went for just eight yards. While he wasn't much of a threat on the ground, Murray did have a nice game in the air. He led the club with four catches for 60 yards. He caught all four of his targets.
Murray got some run as the team's primary ball-carrier near the end of the season. Aside from a ridiculous game Week 12, where he gained 112 yards on just four carries, he failed to really establish himself as a future starter. Murray finished the year with 424 rushing yards on 82 attempts.
Raiders' Sparano: Latavius Murray can handle being a No. 1 guy
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/26/14) During an interview with Sirius XM radio, Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano indicated that Latavius Murray could be the running back of the future, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
"Early in the season, it took us a while to figure that part of it out," Sparano said. "He's a guy that was hurt all year last year. Latavius has really come into his own, and I think he can handle the workload of being a No. 1 guy."
Murray has appeared in 14 games this season, rushing for 387 yards and two touchdowns on 72 attempts. He has rushed for 333 yards over the past four weeks and will look to end the season on a high note Sunday against Denver.
Oakland is 14-point underdog at Denver.
Latavius Murray trustworthy up to a point
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/22/14) If his 23 carries Week 14 against San Francisco didn't convince you, Latavius Murray's 23 carries Week 16 against Buffalo should make the message loud and clear: He is the Raiders' top running back, and they're putting more faith in him than they ever did Darren McFadden.
Granted, it hasn't translated to much production yet, but the 49ers and Bills are two of the toughest defenses against the run. Unfortunately, Denver, the Raiders' Week 17 opponent, is ranked even higher at both.
Can you trust Murray to get his carries? He's gotten them two of the last three weeks, so most likely, yes. And with 20-plus chances, there's always the chance he breaks a long one. But the matchup will make it difficult.
You'd like to start him given his ever-increasing role, but you shouldn't force him into your lineup if you have two (or maybe three) respectable running backs already.
Raiders RB Latavius Murray racks up 108 yards vs. Bills
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/21/14) Raiders running back Latavius Murray rushed for 86 yards on 23 carries and added three receptions for 22 yards in his team's 26-24 win over the Bills in Week 16.
Murray and the Raiders running game started to take off once Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus exited the game with a knee injury and did not return. The yardage was his best since breaking out for 112 yards on four carries against the Chiefs in a Thursday night win. Murray has managed 470 yards on 85 touches going into a Week 17 matchup with the Broncos in Denver.
|Latavius Murray was set up for a breakout role this season for the Raiders. Then Oakland decided to bring back Darren McFadden and sign Maurice Jones-Drew, meaning Murray will be third string at best. He missed his rookie season with an ankle injury, but Murray flashed plenty of potential during training camp last year. If McFadden or Jones-Drew get hurt, and the Raiders don't turn to Marcel Reece, then we could see Murray in an expanded role. He's not worth drafting in most seasonal leagues, but owners in dynasty formats should gamble on Murray with a late-round pick. We could see more of him in 2015 if the Raiders don't give him a chance this season.
