Raiders HC Tony Sparano said Latavius Murray will indeed get additional work when healthy, and said his ascension to getting more carries is earned through practice.
"Like any young player there is a progress you've got to see before you feel like you're going to put him out there in those situations," Sparano said. "I've had to see that in practice, and little by little I've seen it and this has kind of been where it has gone."
Sparano strikes us as old school, so he's not going to hand the job over to Murray. Darren McFadden may continue to start, but we'd be surprised if Murray isn't the best fantasy producer in the Oakland backfield down the stretch.

Week 12 – Darren McFadden vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The days of Darren McFadden as a flex option appear to be over. McFadden has not scored a touchdown since Week 7 and has just 124 total yards over the past three games. Plus, the Raiders finally gave some work to Latavius Murray on Sunday. Murray may not turn out to be anything special, but at least he has youth on his side while McFadden is past his prime. If you have been starting D-Mac, look to pull the plug.
