Description: Raiders running back Latavius Murray continues to be a decent fantasy play.
Insight: That's saying a lot considering he plays for the Raiders. Murray had 12 carries for 59 yards and 17 more yards receiving. Murray is a FLEX option just based on the fact he should get lots of carries, though, when Oakland falls behind, there's always a chance Derek Carr gets more than 50 pass attempts.

Description: Raiders running back Latavius Murray (concussion) is active for Week 14 against the 49ers.
Insight: Murray has the most talent of any Oakland option, but he'll be hard-pressed to break out against San Francisco's defense. Still, it's better than running Darren McFadden or Maurice Jones-drew.

Description: For owners hoping to utilize Raiders running back Latavius Murray down the fantasy stretch run need a reality check.
Insight: The Raiders are the worst rushing team in the league, so it is hard to justify using a running back from Oakland even Murray ran so well a couple weeks ago. Raiders coach Tony Sparano also told Sirius XM Radio that Murray will not be the team's workhorse back the rest of the year. With that news, Murray's upside is somewhat limited. It is hard to believe Sparano because Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden have been awful this season, but does an owner with a championship on the line want to mess with this situation?

Description: Raiders second-year running back Latavius Murray is inactive for Week 13 due to a concussion.
Insight: Murray rushed for 112 yards and two scores on just four carries last weekend. The Raiders will go with a running back by committee approach with Darren McFadden, Marcel Reece, and Maurice Jones- Drew. We don't like any of them.

Description: Raiders second-year running back Latavius Murray finally got a chance to show his stuff and he performed beautifully, up until he was injured.
Insight: Murray rushed for 112 yards and two scores on just four carries, before suffering what appeared to be a concussion. Given how completely useless Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew have been so far this season, if Murray can get healthy he should be the guy from here on out.

Description: Rumors out of Oakland are the Raiders second-year running back Latavius Murray could actually see significant time Thursday night.
Insight: Given how completely useless Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew have been so far this season, he couldn't do any worse and might do a lot better. Murray rushed four times for 43 yards last weekend.

Description: Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said the team is "looking for big things" from second-year running back Latavius Murray, according to csnbayarea.com.
Insight: "He’s shown, to me, the biggest upside right now in what we’ve seen thus far, if he can stay healthy," Olson said. The 6-foot-3, 223-pound Murray, who ran a 40-yard dash of 4.38 seconds, missed his rookie year with an ankle injury. He's behind Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew on the depth chart but could get a shot later this season and is someone to watch in dynasty leagues.
