2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Jul-10-2014 by Larry Gold
While the fantasy world continues to try and figure out the apparent time-share between Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden, it may be Latavius Murray who steals the show. Granted, Murray's best opportunity for playing time is if the two veteran backs continue to regress, but the former Central Florida back has the attention of his offensive coordinator Greg Olson. He was quoted as saying Murray has "the biggest upside" in the crowded Raiders' backfield. The 6-foot-3, 223-pound back has serious jets and is looking to play catch-up after missing his entire rookie year with an ankle injury. Murray can be had late in drafts and should be considered a viable sleeper in deep leagues.
Editor's note: If the planets do align, Murray has huge potential. Unfortunately, he needs both MJD and McFadden to get injured at the same time... Maybe that's not as crazy as it seems.
