Scouting report

MIN RB Latavius Murray - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Chicago Bears

As expected, Latavius Murray wasn't as involved last week as he was the week before. He gets more use than some backup running backs, but still not enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

MIN RB Latavius Murray - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Detroit Lions

Even with Dalvin Cook's return, Minnesota continues to use Latavius Murray. The backup finished with 15 carries for 68 yards and a score last week. However this was a bit of an anomaly as Murray hasn't had quite that amount of touches in recent games. Murray is still involved, but he's a risky bet for fantasy purposes and shouldn't be on anyone's radar.

MIN RB Latavius Murray - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at New England Patriots

Latavius Murray actually led the Vikings in rush attempts (11) and rush yards (33) last week. He's continued to be involved since Dalvin Cook's return, he just hasn't been very good. He's mostly off of the fantasy football radar.

MIN RB Latavius Murray - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Chicago Bears

Latavius Murray likely won't be much of a factor moving forward with Dalvin Cook returning to the lineup. He might get a few touches here and there, but likely not enough to remain relevant in fantasy.

MIN RB Latavius Murray - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Detroit Lions

Latavius Murray is expected to start again as Dalvin Cook continues to nurse his injury. He finished with 95 yards and a score last week. He's now had at least 80 yards and a score in three straight games filling in for Cook, so he's been useful in Minnesota's backfield.

He should continue to play well this week against the Lions, who have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing backs. Detroit has given up at least 80 yards to backs in each game this season. As long as Cook stays out, Murray can be viewed as a low-end RB1 option.

MIN RB Latavius Murray - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. New Orleans Saints

Latavius Murray had 83 total yards and two touchdowns last week as he continues to fill in for Dalvin Cook. Over the past three weeks, Murray has been a decent option in Cook's replacement, and should continue in that role likely past Minnesota's bye week.

He faces a Saints defense this week that has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing backs. New Orleans is allowing the fewest rush yards per game (72.3) and lowest yards per carry (3.1) so it could be a tough day for Murray. He should be viewed as an RB2.

MIN RB Latavius Murray - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at New York Jets

Latavius Murray has been filling in while Dalvin Cook is in injury purgatory. Before last week, he'd been doing a poor job, but he suddenly had a burst of energy and exploded for 155 yards and a TD in Week 6.

Murray's value in fantasy is directly tied to whether or not Dalvin Cook plays. If Cook is inactive again, Murray is a solid RB2 play against the Jets. If Cook is active, then Murray is not much more than a distant RB4.
