2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Murray finished as the 11th highest scoring RB in PPR leagues in 2015. He had 307 touches for 1298 combined yards with six TDs and 41 catches. His game had less explosiveness than expected leading to gaining only 4.0 yards per rush and 5.7 yards per catch. Latavius had only two games with over 100 yards rushing and one other game with over 100 combined yards. Oakland did give him 20 or more touches in six games, so Murray didn't lack opportunity for success. In 2015, the Raiders' RBs had 341 carries for 1347 yards and seven TDs plus 96 catches for 788 yards and five TDs on 126 targets. These are plenty of chances for Latavius to deliver upside, and his game should make a nice step forward if Oakland plays more games from the lead due to better play by their defense. Also, Murray has one of the better offensive lines in the league. In his four seasons at Central Florida, Latavius rushed for 2424 yards on 453 carries with 43 combined TDs. He also caught 50 passes for 524 yards. Murray has 4.4 speed with some questions about his ability to stay healthy. In the early draft season, Latavius has an ADP of 63 as the 21st running back off the board. I like the direction of this offense, and Murray is the type of back I'd be drawn to as an RB2. His next step should be 1500 combined yards with a chance a double digit TDs and serviceable catches.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
5.01 Benny Ricciardi - I love Murray because he is a true three down back. He plays a ton of snaps. He is not the greatest RB and not close to my top 5, but at pick 49 overall, beggers can't be choosers.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
5.08 Scout Fantasy - Shawn Childs - Murray was a nice value RB2 with chance to deliver Fantasy points in three areas (yards, catches, and TDs) and I expect the Raiders to be better offensively.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
4.06 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - He's a high volume back in an offense that should score plenty of points. I have high expectations for Murray this year.
