Murray scored a touchdown against the Saints, but did little else with 21 touches. He's clearly the go-to guy near the end zone, but he'll have a tough matchup against the Eagles. Philadelphia allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs and, to the extent they have a weakness there, it's too pass-catching backs. That could mean more involvement for Jerick McKinnon, though neither back makes a particularly safe option.

The Eagles are 2nd against fantasy running backs, Murray does not have a great matchup this week.
