Raiders happy with Latavius Murray as primary ballcarrier


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Asked Monday about Latavius Murray's status as the Raiders' primary ballcarrier, coach Tony Sparano said, "I've had no thought of changing that," reports CSNCalifornia.com.

Murray ran 12 times for 59 yards in the loss to the Chiefs after carrying 23 times for 76 yards Week 14 against San Francisco. Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew combined for four carries Sunday.

Oakland hosts the Bills in Week 16.


Latavius Murray does what he can


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) Getting another start for the Raiders, running back Latavius Murray didn't exactly light up the scoreboard like in his previous meeting with the Chiefs, when he had 112 yards and two touchdowns on four carries, but he performed adequately enough Week 15 at Kansas City, gaining 59 yards on 12 carries and 17 on two catches.

The problem is he had just 12 carries -- and only a week after having 23. It wasn't because the Raiders turned to someone else. They just stopped running the ball, having only seven carries as a team in the second half.

The Raiders trailed by only a touchdown at the half, but the Chiefs pulled away soon thereafter, putting the ball in the hands of rookie quarterback Derek Carr keeping it away from the Raiders' new weapon.

That's going to happen sometimes with the running back of a 2-12 team, so even though Murray has been a nice find to end the season, you'll need to pick your spots with him. Week 16 against Buffalo could be a more competitive game, but the Bills are so tough against the run that you may still want to pass on Murray.


Raiders' Latavius Murray fails to impress Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Raiders running back Latavius Murray failed to get anything going on the ground during a 31-13 loss to the Chiefs Sunday.

Murray was held to 59 rushing yards on 12 attempts. He was targeted six times in the passing game, but only hauled in two receptions for 16 yards.

The Raiders next play Sunday against Buffalo.


Latavius Murray worth a pickup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) The Raiders may have found a keeper in running back Latavius Murray, who got 23 carries to everyone else's eight Week 14 against San Francisco.

Of course, he gained fewer yards on those 23 carries than he did on four carries in Week 12, when he left with a concussion after two impressive touchdown runs, but against a 49ers defense that ranks seventh against the run, that's understandable. He's looking like a must-add at this stage of the season.

For more major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


Raiders' Latavius Murray gets the bulk of the work Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Raiders running back Latavius Murray received the bulk of the carries Week 14 against the 49ers.

Murray got a lot of work, picking up 76 yards on 23 carries. The run game wasn't all that effective for Oakland during the contest, but quarterback Derek Carr made up for that. It was initially unclear how much work Murray would get coming off a concussion, but he looked like the workhorse back during the game. He didn't turn in a strong performance, but the team win might lead to him getting more run Week 15. Murray wasn't a big threat in the receiving game, but did manage two catches for 9 yards. 

He'll take on the Chiefs Week 15. 


Latavius Murray gets the nod for Raiders


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Raiders running back Latavius Murray is active Week 14 against the 49ers.

Murray missed Week 13 after suffering a concussion. He passed every test, and is ready to return. 

The team will also have Sio Moore and Tarell Brown for the contest. Both players came into the contest listed as questionable. Moore has a hip injury. Brown is dealing with a foot issue.

Raiders coach Sparano 'curious' to see more of RB Latavius Murray


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Raiders running back Latavius Murray, who was recently cleared from a concussion, could see a heavier workload in his first game back against the 49ers in Week 14. Coach Tony Sparano told reporters he's "curious" to see more of Murray on Sunday, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.

Murray suffered a concussion Week 12 against Kansas City. Before the injury, Murray totaled 112 rushing yards and two touchdowns on four carries.

"I love the way Latavius runs the football," 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."


Raiders' Latavius Murray able to practice in full on Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Raiders running back Latavius Murray was able to practice in full on Thursday.

Murray was cleared to return from a concussion, and was finally able to put in a full day of practice. He's expected to play a big role in the team's rushing attack moving forward, though he may be stuck in a rotation for the time being. Murray was on his toward a huge game against the Chiefs before he got injured. 


Sparano not ready to declare Raiders RB his starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Tony Sparano is unprepared to declare impressive Raiders running back Latavius Murray as his featured guy. And that has some fans upset.

Murray rushed for 155 yards in his last eight carries before missing the Week 13 game with a concussion. That's as many yards as starter Darren McFadden has in his last 62 attempts, but Sparano remains skeptical.

"He has eight carries," Sparano pointed out to the San Francisco Chronicle. "I love the way Latavius runs the football. I like what I've seen. I've seen eight carries. I want to see more of him. I'm curious, too. I'm curious just like the fans are curious."

Sparano has stated that he would like to see Murray get 15-18 carries in a game to see how he responds. Oakland hosts San Francisco on Sunday, but Murray will certainly not be used exclusively in the backfield.

"For now, he's going to be a guy you continue to rotate," Sparano said.


Raiders' Latavius Murray won't be used as a workhorse yet


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) Raiders running back Latavius Murray won't be used as a workhorse back just yet, according to FoxSports.

Head coach Tony Sparano pointed out that Murray has only received eight carries this season, and didn't play last year. While Murray did receive a fair amount of work in college, Sparano pointed out that it's been a while since he's taken on a big load. Sparano went on to explain that he views Murray as a player that needs to be in a rotation right now.

Raiders RB Latavius Murray excels in limited work vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
