Murray averaged just 2.6 yards per carry against the Bears on Monday, and Jerick McKinnon quickly established himself as the lead back in Minnesota. But Murray isn't going away, and should continue to get double-digit touches each week, including the goal-line carries. The Packers aren't particularly tough on opposing running backs, but it's difficult to consider starting Murray unless you're desperate, given his performance last week and McKinnon's ascendance. Consider him a high-end RB4 with a chance for a touchdown.

Latavius Murray continues to be involved

Latavius Murray had 15 carries for 28 yards, and added one catch for nine yards, as the Vikings beat the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Latavius split carries with Jerick McKinnon, who outshined Murray by scoring two TDs. Latavius looks to have a hold on first and second downs, but we've seen his floor and ceiling both equate to nothing more than a TD-dependent Flex. If you play him, it means you have no other options, and that should remain the case for much of the season barring injury to McKinnon.
