Week 3: at Tennessee Titans

All RB vs TEN

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Though Latavius Murray has played well in his chances this season (8/57/1 rushing with six targets for 6/44/0 receiving last week, for example, to go over 100 yards combined on the day), DeAndre Washington (7/46/0 rushing with 1/6/0 receiving) and Jalen Richard (6/17/0 rushing with 1/10/0 receiving) are seeing a significant number of touches on the football as well. That's going to continue according to head coach Jack Del Rio - 'All of our running backs are pretty good. We were running the ball well [against Atlanta], and they're all going to play.' Murray has the lead's back load so far, but he isn't a 'featured' back with so many chances flowing to other committee members. The Titans' rush defense has not given out a TD yet this year, while checking in at 14th in the NFL averaging 101.0 rushing yards allowed per game so far. In fact, they have allowed the least fantasy points per game to opposing running backs over the first two weeks (9.4 fantasy points per game on average). This is a tough matchup for the Raiders' backs.
