Latavius Murray rushed 11 times for 31 yards and caught 4-of-6 targets for 25 yards Week 17 against the Chiefs.
Murray finishes the season with 1,066 yards and six touchdowns on 266 carries and 232 yards on 41 receptions. Murray had just one game with fewer than 15 touches all year, and he was a consistent threat in the passing game. Despite all the touches, Murray averaged just four yards a carry and struggled down the stretch. Murray flashed enough to keep him in the lead role next season, but he will have to show more to earn a big contract in 2017. Jan 3 - 7:57 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 19 times for 79 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 16 win over the Chargers, adding five receptions for an additional 38 yards.

Murray had nothing but cushion early, entering the break with 12 carries for 66 yards and his touchdown. He was practically untouched on his 22-yard score. The Bolts stiffened significantly after halftime, but thankfully for Murray's fantasy owners, the damage was already done. Murray will be a mid-range RB2 against the Chiefs' elite defense in Week 17.

Latavius Murray rushed 21 times for 78 yards in the Raiders' Week 15 loss to the Packers.

He also caught 1-of-2 targets for two yards. Murray was the Raiders' offense in the first half, rushing for 64 yards on 15 carries, but he was pretty much phased out after the break, as the Raiders dialed up Derek Carr and the passing game more. Murray hasn't been involved much as a pass catcher since earlier in the season. He'll get a tasty Week 16 date with the Chargers.

Latavius Murray rushed 16 times for 27 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 win over the Broncos.

He was targeted once in the passing game and failed to secure it, and also had a short touchdown negated by a holding penalty. Still, Murray's rushing efficiency has nosedived in the second half of the season, and his shortage of passing-game involvement has severely lowered his floor. Murray has devolved into a shaky RB2 play ahead of a Week 15 date with the Packers.

Latavius Murray rushed 20 times for 86 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 13 loss to the Chiefs.

He caught 4-of-6 targets for 11 yards. Murray ran roughshod through the Chiefs' of-late improved defense on the opening drive, finishing it off with a two-yard touchdown. The Raiders didn't have much trouble moving the ball on Sunday, but turned it over far too many times with three Derek Carr interceptions to kill possessions. Murray's 86 yards on the ground were his most since Week 9. He gets the Broncos' top defense in Week 14 on the road. In Week 5 against them, Murray rushed 13 times for 39 yards and caught three passes for 18 yards. Murray will be an RB2.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 08:11:00 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 22 times for 59 yards in Oakland's Week 12 win over the Titans, adding a 23-yard reception.

The Raiders fed Murray early and often, but he couldn't find his feet in soggy conditions at Nissan Stadium. Workload hasn't been an issue for Murray this season, but he now has only one score over his past five games. He'll be a lower-end RB2 against the Chiefs' stout defense in Week 13.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:10:00 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 13 times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Oakland's Week 11 loss to the Lions.

Murray wasn't targeted in the passing game on a day where Derek Carr completed only 13 throws. Murray's score came after FB Marcel Reece was stuffed in comical fashion on two goal-line totes. Amazingly, Murray's 13 touches were his fewest of the season. He'll be on the RB1/2 borderline against the Titans' burnable run defense in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 04:58:00 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 12 times for 48 yards and caught all five of his targets for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Vikings.

Murray couldn’t get much going Sunday against a game Vikings’ run defense. He was bottled up on nearly every run and saw his fewest carries since Week 1. Murray moved the chains with his five catches but was never able to break the big one. It’s possible he was tentative coming off his concussion. He should have a much easier time next week against the Lions.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 09:02:00 PM

Latavius Murray is active for Week 10 against the Vikings.

He suffered a concussion against the Steelers in Week 9 but has been symptom free since Thursday. Murray was listed as probable on the injury report so his status was never in doubt. He's rushed for at least 85 yards in three straight games. Employ him as an RB2.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 03:08:00 PM

Latavius Murray (concussion) is expected to play Sunday against the Vikings.

Murray returned to a full practice on Friday and has been symptom free since at least Thursday. Murray ranks eighth in the NFL in rushing yards per game and should be in for another solid outing Sunday against the Vikes. He'll be an RB2 in that matchup.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 09:53:00 AM

Latavius Murray (concussion) is probable for Week 10 against the Vikings after getting in a full practice Friday.

Murray declared himself "symptom free" Thursday, and ESPN's Adam Caplan reported he will play barring any setbacks. Murray faces a tough matchup against Linval Joseph and the Vikings, but he should see enough work to remain a solid RB2.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 04:15:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Latavius Murray (concussion) is expected to play Week 10 against the Vikings.

Murray declared himself symptom free Thursday and practiced Friday. As long as he does not suffer a setback, he should be good to go. If Murray does sit, Caplan said to expect Roy Helu to see "a decent amount of work." Helu was a surprise inactive last week.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 01:57:00 PM

Latavius Murray (concussion) resumed practicing on Thursday.

It comes the same day Murray declared himself "symptom free." Although Murray will be listed as "limited" on the injury report, he's trending toward suiting up against the Vikings. Murray's workloads make him an every-week RB2, regardless of matchup.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 05:10:00 PM

Latavius Murray said he is symptom free after suffering a concussion against the Steelers in Week 9.

"I can’t make a call on what their plans are, but I feel good and have been progressing great through the week," Murray said. He's been cleared for physical activity, and might return to practice Thursday. It's unclear if Murray will get the green light to play Sunday against Minnesota, but he's certainly headed in the right direction.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 04:39:00 PM

Latavius Murray (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

Murray's in the concussion protocol, but coach Jack Del Rio expects him to play. It sounds like there's a decent chance he gets cleared. Murray's status will be updated on Thursday.
