Latavius Murray showing 'biggest upside right now'
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson likes what he sees from second-year running back Latavius Murray, who is fighting for the No. 3 job behind Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden, reports Comcast Sports Net.

"We're looking for big things from Latavius Murray right now, coming off the foot injury," Olson said. "He's shown, to me, the biggest upside right now in what we've seen thus far, if he can stay healthy."

Latavius Murray last in Dennis Allen's mental depth chart?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

When asked about the depth his team has at running back, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen listed the five most prominent rushers on his team, but there could be more to it than meets the eye. 

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, who listened to Allen's interview on SiriusXM, the coach ran off his team's "great RB depth" by listing them in the following order: Darren McFadden, Maurice Jones-Drew, Marcel Reece, Korey Sheets and Latavius Murray

Murray, a second-year rusher with some skills and potential, is seemingly still in Allen's dog house after struggling last season. He's expected to do nothing but serve as depth if he makes the team's final roster this summer. He's not worth drafting.

Allen excited for Latavius Murray
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that he's not sure what second-year running back Latavius Murray is capable of, but he's looking forward to finding out.

Murray missed his entire rookie year with an ankle injury, but he's expected to compete for a role as the No. 2 running back behind Darren McFadden this season.

"Latavius is a guy that I think has a lot of potential," Allen said. "When you look at him from an athletic standpoint, he’s a little over 6-2, he’s about 230 pounds and ran a 4-3 40-yard dash. He had the injury last year, and he was never really (healthy). When I saw the tape from him in college, I was very impressed with him as a runner. He's a big, physical back that has excellent footwork and lateral movement. And he has good vision.

"The problem is I never really saw Latavius Murray from the time that he walked on campus. Because really even then in the rookie minicamp he wasn't 100 percent healthy. From all indications, he’s healthy now, and so I’m excited to see what he can do."

Big offseason coming for Latavius Murray
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

With Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings both expected to hit the free agent marketplace, this offseason should be huge for Raiders running back Latavius Murray. On injured reserve for his rookie season with an ankle injury, Murray might be in a position to land a big chunk of the Oakland run game workload. Coach Dennis Allen will be watching and evaluating. 

"I think Latavius is one of those guys that we're anxious to see be healthy and get out there and play," Allen said according to ESPN. "He's a big back that's got excellent speed and excellent size. He runs tough ... we'll find out a lot more about Latavius Murray as we go through the offseason program and into training camp."

Murray is 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, a physical pounder who had 19 total touchdowns and over 1,300 total yards in 11 games as a senior at Central Florida in 2012.

Latavius Murray has sleeper appeal
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Raiders running back Latavius Murray missed his rookie season in 2013 with an ankle injury, but he still has the chance to make an impact this year, reports the Contra Costa Times.

The report considers Murray a sleeper for 2014. Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings are free agents this offseason, and Murray has the chance to compete for the starting job at running back.
