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.

Scouting report

NO RB Latavius Murray - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Latavius Murray's fantasy upside is obviously limited by Alvin Kamara. He couldn't get much of a fantasy footing while Kamara was in the lineup, but he really picked up the slack in the two games Kamara missed, totaling over 300 yards and four touchdowns in Weeks 7 and 8.

Fantasy Downside

The Saints have many mouths to feed and he's already a glorified backup unless Kamara is out.

2020 Bottom Line

Murray is the clear handcuff to Kamara in New Orleans and you can get him later in your drafts. If Kamara happens to miss time, Murray has shown he is extremely capable of handling a hefty workload for the Saints. Otherwise, he's a risky weekly play.
