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.
