Dixon will be suspended to open the season and his ADP shows it. Sure, we can't be certain the job will be his when he comes back, but he has the best athletic profile of anyone on the depth chart and the coaching staff has raved about him. Should he take over as the top back, he has an outside shot at performing like an RB1 for most of the season.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.

I still like Dixon, but he will miss the first four games due to a suspension and the Ravens added Danny Woodhead, which will cut into Dixon's receptions once he returns.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.

Dixon will serve a four-game suspension to start the season. He will eventually be the lead back in Baltimore. Auction Value $7 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

Similar to Doug Martin, Dixon will be suspended to start the season, though he has four games to serve. He looked really good towards the end of 2016, breaking 35 tackles on 118 touches, outplaying Terrance West seemingly every week. John Harbaugh went out of his way to say that Dixon is their guy and they proved it when they didn't draft a running back.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.
