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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs Panthers

Even Latavius Murray got in on the act, even if just in a minor role, against the Vikings, with almost 100 total yards. The theme this season turned out to be Murray played second fiddle to Kamara. And with New Orleans playing for something this week, don’t expect that trend to change in the regular-season finale.

Update: Murray is now all of a sudden a very solid play now that Kamara is out with COVID-19. Murray has shown to still be a productive player when given enough opportunities, which he will now have both on Sunday and likely in the Wild Card playoff as well. Consider Murray a flex, possibly even an RB2.

Update 2: Murray is now out, along with the other Saints' running backs, as they were deemed close contact with Alvin Kamara and will not play Sunday.
