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.

Latavius Murray could return 'around' training camp

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told the media running back Latavius Murray (ankle) could return "around" the start of training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Murray is recovering from offseason ankle surgery and has been sidelined for all of the team's offseason workouts. However, he is said to be on track in his recovery, per reports, and could be ready to make his full return to football activities at the start of training camp in late July. Murray will compete with Jerick McKinnon and Dalvin Cook for the Vikings' starting running back job. However, Cook is the presumed favorite to emerge as the team's early down back while Murray will likely assume the role of the team's short yardage/ goal line specialist.
