Raiders Beat: RB1 job 'appears to be' Latavius Murray's for the rest of the season

Thursday, December 11, 2014, 1:02pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Raiders beat writer Bill Williamson on Latavius Murray's recent ascension:

The job appears to be Murray’s for the rest of the season. He had 23 carries for 76 yards against the 49ers. Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew have been disappointments this season. It is likely neither will be back next year. Thus, Murray will get the chance in the final three games to show Oakland it doesn’t have to worry about finding a lead back. Murray is an interesting player. After missing his rookie year last season with an injury, the former sixth-round draft pick started very slowly. But he has played well in the past three weeks, highlighted by his 90-yard touchdown run against the Chiefs on Nov. 20. The Chiefs will clearly be keying on Murray in this game. It will be fascinating to see who wins this battle.

Fantasy Impact:

After saying that Murray wouldn't be the workhorse, the team gave Murray workhorse-type carries in a grind-it-out win against the 49ers in Week 14. Murray has a terrific matchup against the Chiefs, who have yielded 4.9 YPC this season. The question is -- can Derek Carr provide enough of a threat in the passing game to keep Kansas City from keying on Murray?

Jamaal Charles thought ankle injury was more serious

Monday, December 8, 2014, 10:15am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jamaal Charles thought the same thing many Kansas City Chiefs fans no doubt did when he had his left leg wrenched during a pile of humanity in the first quarter of Sunday’s 17-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

“It was scary at first,’’ Charles said. “I thought I tore my knee up.

“I just got twisted up. Everything got twisted up.’’

Those were sobering words coming from Charles, who knows what a ruined knee feels like. He tore his ACL during the 2011 season.

Fantasy Impact:

Monday, HC Andy Reid said Charles was dealing with swelling in the knee and ankle, but didn't seemed concerned about Charles' Week 15 status. According to the ESPN story, Charles had a mere sprained ankle and he was able to return and finish the game. Charles didn’t get a heavy amount of use, with 10 carries and a pair of pass receptions. But he rushed for 91 yards and scored both of the Chiefs’ touchdowns, one on a 63-yard run and the other on an 18-yard catch from quarterback Alex Smith. He appears good to go, but keep an eye on Charles this week. The Chiefs have a nice, home, Week 15 matchup against the Raiders in what will also be a revenge game. If you own Charles and/or just have an extra roster spot, Knile Davis should be owned.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 14. OC Doug Pederson said that the team intends to lean on Charles even more down the stretch.

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip, foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 14. Stepfan Taylor will apparently get the start, and would be a decent desperation start against a mediocre Chiefs rush defense. But he's not likely to see a huge workload with Marion Grice, Robert Hughes and possibly the newly promoted Kerwynn Williams in the mix.
