Murray had a disastrous game against the Panthers last week, gaining just 20 yards on 11 touches. He should be able to get back on track this weekend against a Bengals defense that allows the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Vontaze Burfict also sounds likely to miss another game which, as the Bears showed last weekend, severely hampers the Cincinnati run defense. Start Murray as an RB2 and try to forget last week's disaster.Watkins really enjoyed Robert Woods' absence, and he's now scored in five of his last six games. But Woods should return this weekend against the Seahawks, which puts a damper on Watkins' outlook. The Seahawks' passing defense hasn't been quite as good without Richard Sherman, but it's still been decent, and without guaranteed targets, Watkins returns to being more of a high-end WR4 this weekend.

We knew last week was going to be a tough test against the Panthers, but 14 yards on nine carries for Murray? That isn't the greatest showing as we head into Week 15, the most important week of the year. The Bengals showed serious weaknesses at home against the Bears run-game last week, as they totaled 227 yards on 35 carries (6.5 YPC) with two touchdowns. They have now allowed a league-leading 15 running backs to finish as top-24 options against them, including seven running backs to reach double-digits (in PPR formats) in their last four games. If Vontaze Burfict misses another week, consider both Murray and McKinnon top-24 options this week. 
Derek Lofland

The Bengals are just 26th against fantasy running backs, Murray should be in the flex conversation this week.
