Latavius Murray might be the Raiders feature back of the future, and it’s not based on one great night. He’s averaging 5.4 yards per carry, largely over the course of three games as a feature back.
It’s the gritty work that deserves acclaim, and it proves he’s no flash in the pan.
“Early in the season, it took us a while to figure that part of it out,” interim head coach Tony Sparano said during an interview with Sirius XM radio. “He’s a guy that was hurt all year last year. Latavius has really come into his own, and I think he can handle the workload of being a No. 1 guy.”
Dynasty and keeper owners should take note -- Murray's arrow is pointing up, though a regime change could alter his trajectory significantly.
