Latavius Murray draws five Week 2 touches

Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed three times for 14 yards and caught both of his targets for 19 yards in Monday night's Week 2 loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

After carrying the ball 15 times for 48 yards in the season opener, Murray only accumulated five touches for 33 yards in the Monday night loss. While he will have games with double-digit touches, they will be hard to predict as long as Alvin Kamara is healthy. Murray is off the radar in Week 3 against Green Bay.

Latavius Murray goes for 48 yards in Week 1 win

Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for 48 yards in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

Murray led the Saints in rushing with his 48 yards on the ground while failing to haul in his lone target. If Murray will continue to get double-digit carries a game, he could be viewed as a low-end Flex option on a weekly basis who would need receptions or a touchdown to return decent value. Murray gets the Raiders in Week 2.

Latavius Murray invisible in Wild Card revenge game

Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed five times for 21 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for four yards in Sunday's Wild Card playoff loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Murray only managed 25 total yards on six touches against a stout Vikings front seven. Much like the Saints offensive showing as a whole, Murray was a disappointment on Wild Card Weekend, especially if you snuck him in your DFS lineup hoping for a revenge game score. Assuming the Saints stand pat with their backfield in 2020, Murray will likely be a late-single-digit round draft day target in most fantasy formats.

Latavius Murray totals 75 yards in Week 17

Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed the ball 17 times for 61 yards and caught his lone target for a 14-yard gain in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Murray led the Saints with his 75 total yards. He also out-touched Alvin Kamara 18-to-0. While Kamara may once again lead Saints backs in touches in the postseason, it would not surprise me if Murray was still heavily involved either.

Latavius Murray totals 25 yards in Week 16

Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed seven times for 14 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

While Alvin Kamara looked like himself for the first time since Week 3, Murray could not get going. With a great matchup at the Panthers in Week 17, both Kamara and Murray could return double-digit fantasy points in PPR.
