Week 4: at Baltimore Ravens

All RB vs BAL

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Latavius Murray (10/37/1 rushing with one catch for one yard), Deandre Washington (6/57/0 rushing with one target for 1/5/0 receiving) and Jalen Richards (6/28/0 rushing with one for 1/13/0 receiving) all got in the act at Tennessee, with 25/123/1 rushing as a team. Murray remains the lead back in the committee, but his share of the touches is limiting his ability to hit yardage-bonus marks in leagues that award these - he's more of a #2/#3 fantasy running back as things stand, but his goal-line work is helping to preserve some fantasy value for his owners. The Ravens' rush defense held Jacksonville to 21/48/0 rushing in Week Three, while Cleveland hit them for 23/145/1 rushing two games ago. On average, the Ravens are allowing 86 yards rushing per game (eighth in the NFL) with two rushing scores handed over so far. They are eighth-least-generous to opposing running backs on a per-game basis, averaging 14.6 fantasy points given out each contest. Murray and company have a tough matchup this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs ATL (1 / 11 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)

Broke off an impressive 11-yard gain on a key 3rd-and-1 play early in the fourth quarter. Caught a couple of short passes underneath against the Falcons prevent defense late that he turned into solid gains.

2016 Week 1 vs NO (1 / 2 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Lined up as the lone back on 2nd-and-goal from the two yard line and absolutely punished the cornerback who tried to tackle as he bulldozed in for a two-yard touchdown. Olawale will continue to be a touchdown vulture as he is the most powerful short yardage runner on the team.

Raiders | Latavius Murray to remain featured back (Sat Sep 17, 12:24 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is still expected to remain the feature back despite losing some carries to Jalen Richard, DeAndre Washington and Jamize Olawale in Week 1, according to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez.

Our View: Murray is going to carry the load for the Raiders, and the other backs will provide the offense with a change of pace. Richard and Washington are explosive backs who can take it to the house from anywhere on the field. Olawale is a powerful player who makes his living between the tackles.
