Lynch Not a Bell-Cow



Pyro's take: “The depth at running back means he won’t have to shoulder a huge load. Something in the range of the 195 carries Latavius Murray had last year should suffice, perhaps less if both Washington and Richard see an increase.”

Fantasy Goo: If Lynch is at full-strength he won’t need to be a bell-cow to out preform Murray’s performance from last year. Murray finished as the RB13 (std scoring) in 2016, despite being fairly inefficient behind a top-5 O-line. I expect Lynch will be there to take Murray’s vacated red-zone carries, but expect to see DeAndre Washington take a larger role in this backfield, especially when we get to the second half of the season, and your fantasy playoffs.

Latavius Murray To Miss Second Straight Game



Pyro's take: Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (toe) has been officially ruled out for Week 6.

Fantasy Goo: Murray will miss his second straight game in Sunday's contest against the Kansas City Chiefs with a toe injury. With Murray sidelined, expect a heavy dose of the combination of DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard once again. Despite seeing more touches, Washington was outgained by Richard last week which should be considered when setting your fantasy lineups for Week 6.

Opportunity for Oakland RBs



Pyro's take: Everyone is buying Washington, as they should be. However, it is not a certainty that he is the back that leads the team today. Richard, who is also 5'8, is actually ahead of Washington on RotoWire's depth chart.

Fantasy Goo: I expect Oakland to use both early and go with the hot-hand. OF course, LAtavius will return, but a lingering toe injury can really hamper a back for an entire season. Plus, Murray has been less than stellar and the team has talked about using more of a community. so the opportunity is there, but for who? If you have room, I would buy on both. If I had to choose, I would take Washington over Richard, but I would nab either if I could. Again, only if you have the space.

A Toe Jam



Pyro's take: @VicTafur Latavius Murray not practicing. Pretty banged up from Sunday’s game

Fantasy Goo: Latavius Murray had 38 combined yards for week 3 and followed that up with 24 yards last weekend. Luckily for fantasy owners he has 3 touchdowns thruogh the first three weeks. Murray has been spotted with a walking boot which is not wonderful news to boot. A toe injury does not sound like much but it did end Deion Sanders career with Dallas before he came back with the Redskins. 2016 has been a mystery for the RB position so, let’s hope that you have depth on your fantasy roster this weekend. Rookie DeAndre Washington may get a shot at the Chargers defense.

Latavius Murray Should Benefit From Depth In Raiders Backfield

After topping

Pyro's take: After topping 1,000 yards rushing and going to the Pro Bowl as an alternate while carrying almost the entire running load for the Oakland Raiders last season, Latavius Murray believes he can have an even more productive year this season. He feels this way due to the Raiders adding rookie DeAndre Washington and other potential runners to the mix. “That’s going to be the difference this year for me, having somebody to come in and carry the load for a little while and keep me fresh so when I come in I can do better things and have more of those explosive and big runs that I showed I can have,” Murray said.

Fantasy Goo: Murray will be on the field less this season with a quality back-up running back in Washington. Last season, Murray was the fourth-ranked running back in the NFL with 680 snaps. In the 4th quarter of games, Murray averaged more than 2 yards per carry (YPC) less. Washington will get a few carries a game, helping Murray to stay fresh and keep his yards per carry from dropping in the game and throughout the season. Murray will be a quality RB2 on fantasy teams and even sneak into a back-end RB1 role.

DeAndre Washington To Be Number Two In Raiders Backfield

The San Francisco

Pyro's take: The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Oakland Raiders’ rookie RB DeAndre Washington will be the number two RB behind Latavius Murray. Washington ran the ball eight times for 43 yards and caught one pass for 32 yards in the Raiders first preseason game against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: While the Raiders are saying that Murray is going to be the bell-cow RB, Washington could easily cut into some of Murray’s snaps, especially on third-down. I believe that Washington is one of the top handcuffs in fantasy football this year. The fifth-round rookie has a very low ADP at 160 and has a clear path to the starting position. I think Washington provides a ton of value as a later round RB to stash, and I would definitely advise all Murray owners to handcuff him with Washington.

Latavius Murray To Handle Bulk Of Carries Out Of Raiders Backfield

The Oakland Raiders

Pyro's take: The Oakland Raiders website believes that the team's ground game will once again rely heavily on Latavius Murray. (Oakland Raiders)

Fantasy Goo: Murray is entering his second year as the starter, but could certainly benefit from having someone else spell him in the backfield. His efficiency waned as the season wore on, and having someone like rookie DeAndre Washington take on some of the workload can only help. Expect Murray to maintain his status as a stable running back fantasy leagues.

Raiders See DeAndre Washington As An Every-Down Back

Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave

Pyro's take: Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave says Washington, who ran for 1,492 yards and added 385 receiving yards last year at Texas Tech, can be an every-down back in the Raiders’ offense.
“He’s really worked well for us thus far,” Musgrave said, via the East Bay Times. “So we’re putting him in different situations to get a feel for he’s strengths and how we can tailor plays, tailor situations so he can really flash for us. He’s going to be good in first, second or third down.”

As a fifth-round draft pick, Raiders rookie running back DeAndre Washington isn't guaranteed a roster spot. But a month before training camp, the Raiders think Washington can make a big impact on their offense.
Latavius Murray is entrenched as the starter in Oakland, but Washington may get significant playing time as the No. 2 running back, and play a bigger role than usual for a fifth-round rookie.
