The Bears are 6th against fantasy running backs, Murray is a boom / bust RB2. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Murray was unspectacular against the Packers, gaining 75 total yards on 22 touches. But he saw a ton of work, as usual, which always keeps him as a viable fantasy play. The Bears allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs, but you're not going to avoid Murray in light of the uncertainty at running back in Week 17. The Vikings could still technically lose out on a bye, so expect them to play their starters, and for Murray to have a decent fantasy day.Ajayi's role has continued to grow, and he gained 73 total yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Raiders. With the No. 1 seed locked up, it's likely that the Eagles will rest some of their starters next weekend against the Cowboys. Ajayi will probably see a few snaps, but it's unlikely that they will be meaningful. Wait for word from Philadelphia this week, but don't plan on starting Ajayi if you play through Week 17.
