News: Murray had just one carry for six yards in Sunday's 30-14 loss to Houston. Impact: Murray was expected to see a bigger role, with Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) inactive Sunday, but Darren McFadden served as Oakland's workhorse back, racking up 14 touches for 68 yards with a touchdown. The speedy and tall Murray could see a more prominent role as the season moves along, as McFadden and Jones-Drew aren't the most durable runners around.(RotoWire, )

News: With Maurice Jones-Drew believed to be unlikely to suit up Sunday, Murray could be in line to see expanded duties in Week 2, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Assuming Jones-Drew is unable to play Sunday against the Texans, offensive coordinator Greg Olson indicated that both Darren McFadden and Murray will see work out of the team's backfield in Week 2. "Last week, we wanted to see Maurice Jones-Drew in a full-time role," Olson said. "This week, I don't know if we'll see that. We'll start with Darren, and it probably will be more series-wise with Latavius and Darren." While Murray would be a speculative play in Week 2 after not recording a carry in Week 1, he could be worth a roster stash in order to see how the Raiders' Week 2 backfield situation plays out. In any case, given the injury history of his veteran counterparts, it's not hard to imagine Murray emerging on the fantasy radar as the season progresses.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray did not touch the ball on offense but totaled 67 yards on three kick returns in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Impact: The 24-year-old's NFL debut was rather uneventful, though he did have a 38-yard return to begin the second half. He muffed a catch on a kick return just prior to halftime. Although he didn't see a touch on offense against the Jets, Murray could be in line for a slightly increased role this week if Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is forced to sit, though most of the work would likely fall to Darren McFadden and Marcel Reece. Still, the 6-foot-3, 230-pound Murray is worth monitoring, as he could take on a prominent role if Jones-Drew and McFadden both end up hurt, which is entirely plausible.(RotoWire, )
