The Muscle Hamster could be a dud or he could be one of the biggest steals in the draft. I'm currently leaning on steal 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Muscle Hampster has been fully healthy just two seasons in his career. He was a top 12 fantasy player in both of those seasons. Granted, we know he is missing 3 games to start the year, but he apparently looks better than ever and has put the demons behind him. If we see the good version of Martin, he could end up a top 5 running back come playoff time.Murray is still dealing with his ankle recovery and as we all know, the Vikings went out and drafted Cook. They are paying enough money to Murray, however, that you would expect him to have a role int he offense, and should Cook go down, he should quickly become a workhorse.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Martin should remain the lead back after his three-game suspension. He will likely concede touches to a few different backs, but I think he'll hold onto the lead role.Murray will need to beat out Dalvin Cook once he returns from his injury, and Cook has looked good this offseason. I expect Cook to win the majority of the touches.
Corey Parson
RotoExperts
Martin will miss the first four games of the season due to suspension. When he returns, he will likely share time with Jacquizz Rodgers. Auction Value $4 Murray's 12 touchdowns in Oakland last season saved an otherwise pedestrian campaign. This season, Minnesota rookie Dalvin Cook will likely make Murray a reserve. Auction Value $6

Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Coming back to a team with Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, O.J. Howard, and Chris Godwin will be a welcoming sight for Martin, who only has three games left on his suspension. We've seen a hit-or-miss Martin over his career, but he has finished as a top-three running back twice. He could be a steal at this point.Despite finishing as the No. 13 running back in 2016, Murray wasn't very good, hence the reason the Raiders let him walk to sign a 31-year-old retired running back. Going from the Raiders offensive line that's ranked top-three in the NFL to the Vikings offensive line that ranks among the five worst was already a problem, but then he had foot surgery, and the Vikings traded up to draft Dalvin Cook in the second round. It's likely that Murray has seen his final days of fantasy relevance.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Martin has looked very good in OTAs. He does have to serve a 3-game suspension, but it looks like he should retain the starting role when he returns and have a chance to be a low-end flex on an explosive offense that figures to use a RBBC. 
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Missing the first three games with a suspension, there's a good chance he gets let go by the Bucks and can't sign with anyone until after he's eligible to come back.He was a touchdown machine, but he lacked the consistent touches to be an RB1. He's also a free agent so unless he goes somewhere with a great O-line I might be throwing him to the scrap heap.
