You in a twenty team league? Been doing heavy duty fantasy football for twenty years. The key is the scoring. Spiller will definitely get more offensive opportunity than Murphy, but return yardage can add up with Murphy slated to cover both duties. With the new kicking rules Murphy may be actually returning on every kickoff if the Raiders kick short. What is your scoring breakdown?

In that last pre season game vs the Ravens, Murphy rushed 6 x's for 31 yards. He also caught 3 passes for 28 yards. As for kick off duty (his specialty), he returned two for a combine 53 yards.

Marcus is hardly awful.

Edit: See stats below from his rookie campaign.

Other than the returns, Ingram, Hightower and Spiller will be handling most all of those duties.

The OP has pointed out that Murphy is awful which is simply not true.

I'm not concerned with Marcus at the RB position. He is a kick returner / punt specialist.

Well brace yourself, MM is #1 on the depth chart for kick offs come Sunday or until coach Payton changes the lineup.

Trust and believe JRotten.

Believe me I am forever hopeful! Even if it doesn't show up in my posts. I will be more than happy to eat my share of crow if he tears it up.
