Raiders RB Latavius Murray will be given every chance to show he can be a feature back, but HC Jack Del Rio said it's far from a done deal. He'll give Maurice Jones-Drew a chance to rejuvenate his legs, but he's a question mark based on last season's 2.2 yards per carry average. Darren McFadden is an unrestricted free agent.
We don't think that Murray will need extra chances to prove he's a feature back. He rushed 82 times for 424 yards (a 5.2 YPC) and two touchdowns, including an incredible four-carry, 112-yard, two-TD performance against the Chiefs in Week 12. He still averaged a solid (if unspectacular) 4.0 YPC when that game is excluded. With good size (6'2", 223 lbs) and great speed (4.38 40-yard dash), Murray has all the physical tools to succeed at the position. He even showed solid hands with 17 receptions on 23 targets.

Week 17 – Darren McFadden at Denver Broncos
Darren McFadden had one of his stronger performances of 2014 last weekend as Oakland upset Buffalo. McFadden wasn’t terribly active in a reserve role behind Latavius Murray, but averaged six yards a carry and accumulated 54 yards. Nevertheless, with limited work and Denver’s tough run defense on tap, McFadden is off the flex radar.
