Raiders' Latavius Murray: Expected to carry the load
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

"All indications" suggest Murray will be a bell cow back for the Raiders in 2016, the team's official site reports.

Murray assumed lead-back duties for the first time in his career during 2015, but his increased workload led to a precipitous drop in his efficiency, as his YPC fell from 5.2 in 2014 to 4.0 this past year. Nonetheless, Murray was the first Raiders tailback to top 1,000 yards on the ground since 2010, management only added competition for Murray in the form of rookie scatback DeAndre Washington, and the offensive line in Oakland only became an even more formidable unit with the offseason addition of G Kelechi Osemele. To boot, the growing rapport between third-year QB Derek Carr and second-year WR Amari Cooper could force defensive attention away from the running game in general.

Raiders' Latavius Murray: Gets a bit of competition
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rookie fifth-round selection DeAndre Washington will likely compete to serve as Murray's top backup, NBC Bay Area reports.

Despite being connected to an assortment of big-name free agents and rookies, the Raiders haven't done much to bolster their running back group, perhaps showing some faith in Murray. There's still some chance the team will add competition, but Murray's path to the starting job appears quite clear at the moment. DeAndre Washington, who checks in at 5-foot-8, 204 pounds, will likely threaten Murray's receiving workload more so than his carries - at least at the beginning of the season. Murray caught 41 of 53 targets in 2015, but he only managed 232 yards (5.7 YPR, 4.4 YPT) and didn't have any receiving touchdowns.

Raiders' Latavius Murray: 56 yards from scrimmage in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Latavius Murray ran for 31 yards on 11 carries and caught four of six targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 23-17 loss at Kansas City.

Outside of a nine-yard run at one point, Murray was completely shut down, and his receiving numbers look better because he caught a couple of passes late in the game with the Oakland Raiders in comeback mode. Despite not ripping off as many long runs as some experts predicted (just two runs of 40+ yards), Murray had a successful first year as Oakland's starting tailback. In fact, Murray finished in the top 10 in rushing, with 1,066 yards. The current roster doesn't have anyone that could seriously challenge Murray for work in 2016, so unless the Raiders decide to draft a RB, expect him to be the featured back once again next season.

Raiders' Latavius Murray: Goes for 117 total yards and a TD Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Latavius Murray rushed for 79 yards and a score on 19 carries and secured all five of his targets for 38 yards in Thursday's 23-20 overtime win against the Chargers.

Murray was the most productive member of the Oakland Raiders offense Thursday, and he eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards on the season in the process. He went untouched, thanks to a great lead block from Jamize Olawale, for his 22-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. The Raiders close out the season next week on the road against a Chiefs defense that surrendered 97 total yards and a score to Murray in Week 12.

Raiders' Latavius Murray: Posts 78 yards rushing in Week 15 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Latavius Murray gained 78 yards on 21 carries and secured one of two targets for two yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Packers.

The second-year tailback had a solid afternoon on a wet track at the O.co Coliseum, although his carries were reduced late in the game with the Oakland Raiders in catch-up mode. Murray's 3.7 yards per carry was actually his second-best figure in that category over the last five weeks, a span that had seen him average less than two yards per tote in one contest and under three yards in two others. Now at 956 rushing yards on the season, Murray should easily surpass the 1,000-yard mark against a generous Chargers rush defense in Week 16. In doing so, he will be the franchise's first back to achieve the milestone since Darren McFadden tallied 1,157 yards in 2010.
