Raiders want RB Latavius Murray to have 'more rushes'

Wednesday, September 7, 2016, 11:56am

SF Chronicle - [Full Article]

Raiders RB Latavius Murray will lose some snaps to Washington in passing situations, but his overall workload should be close to last season’s, as head coach Jack Del Rio wants to run the ball more.

“I want to have more rushes,” Del Rio said. “I don’t want him to have less. If anything, maybe a little more, but I want him to be more productive. We’re working on becoming a team that’s capable of running the ball well. We never really, truly established that last year.”

One underrated part of Murray’s game is his pass-blocking, and that’s why he won’t lose too much time to two 5-foot-8 rookies.

“He doesn’t miss protections,” Derek Carr said. “He sticks his face in there and keeps me clean. That’s the most important job a running back has. You’ve got to protect the quarterback.”

Fantasy Impact:

For a 25-year-old running back coming off of a 1298-yard season, Murray isn’t getting a lot of love. He rushed for a very mediocre 4.0 YPC, but he handled 71.6% of the team’s running back touches. On paper, the team improved its offensive line and defense this offseason, which could result in more favorable game scripts and more touches for Murray. He’ll have to fend off Washington, whom the Raiders drafted in the 5th round.

Seahawk TE Jimmy Graham's status to be determined late next week

Wednesday, August 31, 2016, 7:42pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Tight end Jimmy Graham won’t be in the lineup for the Seahawks on Thursday when they close the preseason against the Raiders, but the fourth week of the preseason has never been the date on people’s minds when it comes to Graham’s return to game action.

Week 1 against the Dolphins is the date that everyone has been watching and there’s still no answer from the team about whether Graham will play. Coach Pete Carroll was typically upbeat on Wednesday, but said a determination won’t be made for another week or so.

“Jimmy has been practicing full-go, and we’re thrilled about it,” Carroll said, via the team’s website. “He is too, he has had a lot of fun being back out with the fellas and all. He had a full week of practice, he’ll have another full week of practice, and we’ll just keep taking it day-to-day. … We won’t know until late next week.”

Fantasy Impact:

Taking Graham off the physically unable to perform list is a good sign that the Seahawks expect to have Graham in the lineup in the first few weeks of the season, but there’s not much to gain from pushing for the first of 16 games if it creates undue risk about the next 15 on the schedule, the story said.
