  Raiders | Marcel Reece earns more carries    Sat Nov 22, 04:34 PM

Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece earned more carries after his performance in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 20. Reece rushed for 46 yards during a crucial 17-play, 80-yard drive late in the game. Interim head coach Tony Sparano said he could envision using Reece as the primary running back again.

Footballguys view: Reece should have been getting a bit more playing time already, and we're glad the Raiders finally came around. His fantasy value is only good enough for fantasy owners in deeper PPR leagues.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray earns larger role    Fri Nov 21, 10:21 AM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) has earned himself a larger role in the offense, according to interim head coach Tony Sparano. His concussion, obviously, will dictate when that plan will be put into motion. 'The way he ran the ball today he earned more snaps, no doubt about it,' Sparano said. 'We just have to see how he comes out of this thing.'

Footballguys view: Murray will be a high priority pickup on the waiver wire next week regardless of where he is the concussion protocol.

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (undisclosed) went to the locker room late in the second quarter after taking a big hit during the team's Week 12 game Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: The silver lining for Murray owners is that he has 10 days to get through the league concussion protocol and face the Rams in Week 13.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (quadriceps) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 19, and is probable for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray to be more involved?    Mon Nov 17, 05:21 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray had four carries for 43 yards in the team's Week 11 loss to the San Diego Chargers, and his 23-yard run late in the third quarter was the team's longest rushing gain for a running back of the season. 'They've been wanting to get me in the mix more and that's all I can ask,' Murray said. 'When they do, I have to make sure they give me a reason to put me back in there.' Murray is a much bigger back than either RBs Darren McFadden or Maurice Jones-Drew, and he runs with an upright style. Oakland finished with 71 yards on 19 carries, which was their highest rushing output since Oct. 12 in their first matchup with the Chargers.

Footballguys view: Murray is an interesting player to monitor in dynasty leagues. He reminds us of former Titans RB Chris Brown because Murray is a tall, upright runner with swiftness and speed in the open field.

  Raiders | Andre Holmes not targeted    Mon Nov 10, 03:23 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Andre Holmes was not even targeted in the team's Week 10 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Holmes was not getting open against the Broncos suffocating defense. He's a 'what the heck' flex in tough matchups.

  Raiders | James Jones struggles to find room    Mon Nov 10, 03:03 PM

Oakland Raiders WR James Jones gained just 20 yards on eight catches in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos. That's 2.5 yards per catch.

Footballguys view: Credit star cornerback Chris Harris here. The Broncos corner locked down Jones, and the wide receiver has an NFL-record low for yards on eight catches. His 20 yards receiving is the lowest in NFL history on so many catches.

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew needs to see more carries, according to head coach Tony Sparano.

Oakland Raiders WR Brice Butler could receive more playing time moving forward after making a big play in each of the last two weeks. Butler said he has not lobbied for more playing time but hopes his play speaks for itself.

Footballguys view: It's great that he earned more time in their lineup, but keep him away from yours. At best he is the most desperate of hail mary's and one which will leave you facepalming yourself for ever trying him in your lineup.
