If Murray lands in the old Mark Ingram role, everyone is too low on him, as he'll offer RB2 numbers more often than not. It's hard to imagine that someone just walks in and fills Ingram's shoes, but the Saints didn't waste any time locking Murray up in free agency, so they clearly viewed him as someone who could do it. You might want to expect a slight bump in touches for Alvin Kamara, while Murray gets slightly less than Ingram did. He's going to be a bit touchdown-dependent, but he's able to fill the RB3 slot on your fantasy teamIt wasn't the rookie season that many expected out of Penny, who was drafted in the first-round by the Seahawks, but 2019 is looking up. Not only did the Seahawks let Mike Davis walk in free agency (he received 146 touches last year), but Chris Carson had some work done on his knee. The Seahawks are clearly a run-first team, meaning it's possible we see both Carson and Penny fantasy relevant. Worst case scenario, you have what might be the best handcuff in football

Remember in 2017 when Alvin Kamara finished #3 and Mark Ingram finished #6 among all half-PPR fantasy running backs? Well, Ingram's average draft position was 46th overall last year even despite a 4-game suspension. He and Kamara proceeded to score 33.0 fantasy points per game combined last year after 32.7 in 2017. The point in saying all this is that Murray is replacing Ingram in one of the most useful roles in fantasy football. He may be a better version, yet is being drafted 45 spots after Ingram was last year, even despite Ingram having a four-game suspension. That doesn't seem smart.If you are looking for upside at the running back position in the mid-rounds, Penny may have the most you'll be able to find. Seattle is going to run run run again this season and if Carson's knee issue runs into the season, Penny might steal the job and never look back as an RB1 type performer. With that said, it is also possible he'll but a fantasy cut candidate in September.

I love Murray this season. Not only does he come with a decent floor being in the Saints offense, but he has just as much upside as a backup RB can have. They signed him to be the Ingram replacement, and that's a role he can excel at. Murray is going to see 9-11 carries per game, and about 2-3 targets per game. He's also going to be used from time to time in the red zone, and will be used more when they pull away from teams. That might not sound enticing, but in the Saints offense he can return low end RB 2 to high end RB 3 numbers with that sort of volume. The reason I want him is the upside if Kamara were to get hurt. Murray would instantly become a RB 1. So he's a solid FLEX option with massive upside. I'll take that upside for where he's going in drafts.I'm very excited about the upside of Penny this season. The Seahawks are going to run the ball a ton, and Penny has the chance to pass Carson as the 1A. Penny averaged 6 YPC, including 4.36 yards per carry after contact from week 9 on last season. Those each ranked 3rd among RB's with at least 40 carries over that time. His passing game role is going to be limited, but if something were to happen to Carson, then we're looking at a true three down back, on a run first offense. So, how likely is Carson to suffer an injury? Well, he's only been able to play in half of his career games due to injuries. Although most of that was time missed from his leg fracture. Ultimately, you should be drafting Penny for the talent, and the upside if he can win the starting job. And I believe that he can.
