Talk about the tale of two weeks. Last week's waiver wire gem Jonas Gray followed up his 200 yard, 4 touchdown performance with a healthy DNP, and LeGarrette Blount goes from sulking on the Steelers sidelines to scoring twice for the hottest team in the league. As always, play Belichick running back roulette at your own risk, but Blount should be able to get your score high in the coming weeks.
This move is purely speculative, but one would think that it would behoove the 0-10 Raiders to see what they’ve got in Latavius Murray, the second year back out of Central Florida. Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Dew have both been hot messes this season, leaving Oakland with nothing to lose by looking to the future. Murray averaged more than 10 YPC in the Raiders 13-6 loss to the Chargers. They’ve got a brutal schedule coming up from a rushing perspective (K.C. twice, San Fran, St. Louis and Buffalo for the remainder of the fantasy season) but he is someone to keep an eye on in the event he catches lighting in a bottle as their pitiful year trots to a close.Here's what Murray did last week: 4 carries, 112 rushing yards, 2 rushing touchdowns
Assuming he gets cleared from his concussion, he is a top 25 play at running back this week.
