2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
The league’s worst run-blocking offensive line did no favors to 2014 starters Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden. The duo averaged just 3.2 yards per carry on 198 combined rushes while showing practically zero big play ability. While the veterans struggled to produce anything of value, the young Latavius Murray sat on the bench, waiting for his opportunity. When that opportunity finally arrived, Murray burst onto the scene, showing off electric playmaking ability which saw him average 5.2 yards per carry over the course of the season – a full two yards per carry better than what the Raiders were getting from Jones-Drew and McFadden.

With Jones-Drew now retired and McFadden now in Dallas, the feature running back job appears to belong to Murray as we head into the 2015 season. With an ideal combination of speed and strength, Murray is everything that fantasy owners should be looking for. The biggest red flag surrounding him is durability. Murray missed his entire rookie campaign in 2013 after suffering what was originally described as a “minor” ankle injury in a preseason game. He never saw the field again in 2013 and saw only four carries through the Raiders’ first half of the 2014 season. If he can stay healthy, Murray has the potential to be a top-10 fantasy running back this season. With only Roy Helu and a mediocre Trent Richardson behind him on the depth chart, 200-plus carries is certainly within reach.

Comment: Head coach Jack Del Rio won't name Murray the starter just yet. He insists Trent Richardson is part of the competition.
