Dalvin Cook was an absolute bell-cow for the Vikings before his injury, but a lot of that may have been because Murray was injured. There is a possibility that Murray has a role in a split backfield sort of situation and gets some goal-line carries. Plus, just imagine how Murray would perform if Cook was hurt and McKinnon is now out of his way.

Latavius Murray nets 43 yards in first preseason game

Latavius Murray rumbled for 20 and 21 yards respectively on his first two carries of the opening series for the Vikings against the Broncos on Saturday. However, Murray was unable to convert two goal-line carries prior to Kirk Cousins finding Stefon Diggs for a score on third down from the one. Murray finished with four carries for 43 yards.

Fantasy Impact

While Murray will cede most of the carries in the Vikings backfield to Dalvin Cook, he will get the occasional series and is an important handcuff for fantasy owners who draft Cook in the early rounds.
