You shouldn't expect to have Alvin Kamara for this game, as the Saints bye is coming after this game, so it makes sense for them to rest him. That would mean another monster workload for Murray in a game his team is projected for over 28 points. We watched him tally 33 opportunities against the Bears last week while the remaining running backs got just four of them. The Saints are going to be more than willing to ride him with their bye week on tap. The Cardinals have faced two running backs who've totaled 20-plus carries and both finished with at least 18.5 PPR points. With how beatable the Cardinals have been in the secondary, we hadn't seen many running backs accumulate yardage through the air, though with Peterson back, you have to wonder if we start seeing more check-downs to the running backs. We have seen running backs average 22.7 carries per game against the Cardinals while tallying a respectable 4.36 yards per carry, so the vitals are strong for Murray here. Any time you have a big home favorite who's locked into 18-plus touches, you play him as a high-end RB2, at minimum.Over the last two weeks, we've watched McCoy out-snap (53 to 38) and out-touch (24 to 13) Williams. It's also fair to say that McCoy has looked a lot better while averaging 5.4 yards per carry while Williams has averaged just 1.3 yards per carry. McCoy is the starter in this offense with Williams mixed in. That's important because Reid is likely to go back to his run-heavy ways with the offense. The Packers are the perfect team to try and impose their will on, too. On the year, they've allowed a league-high 4.99 yards per carry and it's led to the fifth-most points to running backs. The only concern is them being gamescripted out of it, but the defense has played well at home, which is why we should be somewhat optimistic. We have seen running backs average 28.6 touches per game against the Packers, which is more than enough for their timeshare, too. Every running back who's totaled at least 12 touches against them has finished as a top-26 running back, and McCoy should have no problem getting into that territory. He can be played as a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 with upside if the 65/35 split continues.

 McCoy seems to have locked down the Chiefs RB1 job, even if that means only 20 carries in the past two games combined. It remains to be seen what happens with the absence of Patrick Mahomes for the next few weeks. Consider McCoy a serviceable RB2 with limited upside unless the Chiefs game plan shifts drastically.
