Draft note
by John Paulsen
Murray finished as the No. 29 fantasy back in his first season with the Saints, and that included two weeks as the starter (with Alvin Kamara out). In those games he averaged 31.0 touches for 154 total yards and 2.0 touchdowns, or 30.9 points per game in half-PPR formats. This shows what sort of upside Murray has if Kamara were to go down for a stretch of games. In the other 14 games, Murray was basically just a backup, averaging 8.4 touches for 40 yards and 0.14 TD per game. As a 10th-round pick he has the sort of upside that should appeal to the Zero RB folks. He’s a bit pricey, but he has elite RB1 upside if he finds himself in the lead back role in New Orleans.

NO RB Latavius Murray - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs Chargers

Sunday was easily Murray's best game of the season with 83 total yards and his first two touchdowns of the season. He's been used more on offense this season. He has seen at least 12 carries in three of his first four games. That being said, his 41 percent of snaps on Sunday was also the most of the season, so his ceiling is limited. But he is maximizing his opportunities as best he can and he sits inside our top 30 running backs for this week.
