2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)

Last updated on Jul-10-2014 by Larry Goldstein

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.

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
15.06 Fantasytaz - Jim Day - At this point in the draft upside is key, and Murray is another I think has some upside. He is a big back who runs very well. He ran a 4.38 40 at his pro day. With McFadden in front of him he should get some chances to play since McFadden can't stay on the field for a full season.

16.05 Draft TV - Pure lottery ticket. If Darren McFadden goes down (and Rashad Jennings who is not new to the injury bug,) Murray has the talent to produce. Could he end up like Alfred Morris?
