Week 8: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All RB vs TB

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Latavius Murray got his toe well enough to play at Jacksonville last weekend, and he gained 18/59/2 rushing on the day, while adding five targets for 2/4/0 receiving. Other members of the Oakland committee played as well, with DeAndre Washington seeing 5/16/0 rushing and two targets for 1/6/0 receiving, and Jamize Olawale handling 3/12/0 rushing. Jalen Richard's role was very limited last week - 1/1/0 rushing with 1/0/0 receiving - so it looks like Murray is back in the lead spot for this stable. All told, the Raiders had 34/144/2 rushing on the day last week. We'll see if Murray can stay in the catbird seat for another game. The Buccaneers' rush defense allowed 28/160/1 to the 49ers' runners last week, and that is in their usual range from week to week this month. From Week Five to Week Seven of regular season (the last three weeks), Tampa Bay averages 25.6 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (fifth-most in the NFL). This defensive front has collapsed on itself during October, friends. Don't let the season average of 113.2 rushing yards allowed per game fool you, this group is playing substantially worse than that of late. This is a great matchup for the Raiders.
