Murray has always held appeal as insurance RB, but he's never been able to push his way into weekly relevance in this offense. As the Saints head into 2021, we could see them take a more balanced approach and begin running the ball a bit more to take some pressure off of their new QB. If you do end up drafting Kamara with an early pick, doubling back and securing Murray as your 4th or 5th RB on your roster is a great strategy. He comes with league-winning upside if Kamara were to miss time and there's the possibility that he sees extra involvement this upcoming season.While Nyheim Hines finished as the RB20 last season, anyone who rostered him in fantasy football knows that he was not exactly the most consistent option week in and week out. Jonathan Taylor should shoulder the majority of the workload for this offense, while Hines sprinkles in behind him and rotates with Marlon Mack. Frank Reich should still continue to utilize multiple RBs in this backfield, but Hines' workload most likely will not be enough to lead to anything more than low-end RB3 weekly production. My Very Early Projection: 49-222-1 rushing & 46-347-2 receiving.

Yes, Drew Brees is gone, which have some concerned about the handcuff value of Murray. This is where I remind you about something. Remember when Alvin Kamara missed time in 2019 and Murray was the No. 2 running back for that short stretch? Well, one of those games he played was with Teddy Bridgewater under center, where Murray rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns against the tough Bears defense. He's getting up there in age, but should still present borderline RB1 potential behind a great offensive line should Kamara miss any time.He finished as the RB20 in half PPR formats last year. Crazy, right? While that's firm RB2 territory, he finished as an RB2 or better in just 43.8 percent of his games, tied with Chase Edmonds. He clearly has a role in this offense, though it's a bit reliant on gamescript, as Jonathan Taylor is the clear early-down back, while Hines is the preferred back in passing situations. If they give Taylor more work in the passing game this year, it's coming at the expense of Hines, and knowing Taylor's ADP, drafters expect that increase for Taylor. Even going back to 2019, Hines was an RB3 or better just 43.8 percent of the time, which is more in line for how you should feel about him in 2021. He's just an emergency flex option.
Dan Harris

You can say this for Murray: you know what you're going to get while he is on the Saints. In 2019, he had 146 carries, 872 yards from scrimmage and six total touchdowns. In 2020, he had 146 carries, 832 yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns. He's an ideal bench piece, who you can plug in when you're hurting because of bye weeks but who also acts as a top-end handcuff for Alvin Kamara. And don't worry about Drew Brees' departure - Murray has performed even better with the Saints without Brees than with him.
