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.

Latavius Murray invisible in Week 2 loss

Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed five times for seven yards and caught his lone target for a 16-yard gain in Sunday's Week 2's loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Murray scored in the season opener but followed it up with a Week 2 dud. It seems like Murray is a touchdown-dependent fantasy option while Alvin Kamara is healthy and dominating touches. Murray is a risky fantasy play in Week 3 against the Seahawks
