New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed for 12 yards on five carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10. He also caught two passes for seven yards during the game.
Huddle Up: The Saints had only 11 rushing attempts during the game, so Murray did not have a big role in the offense this week. He will be facing one of the best run defenses next week in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could be benched if fantasy players have better options available.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray will continue to have a big role in the offense against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10 despite the return of RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee), according to head coach Sean Payton. 'Week 1 of Alvin coming back,' Payton said. 'We'll be smart.'
Huddle Up: Murray proved he is more than capable of shouldering the load in Kamara's absence, delivering a pair of 100-yard rushing efforts. Even with Kamara back, Murray should be a strong flex option against the Falcons.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed for 102 yards and one touchdown on 21 carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 8. He also caught nine passes for 55 yards and one touchdown during the game.
Huddle Up: Murray was a big part of the offense this week with Alvin Kamara out of the lineup. Kamara probably will be available to play in Week 10, but Murray should still have a solid role in the offense. He can be considered a flex option in Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed 27 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns and caught five passes for 31 yards in a 36-25 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 7.
Huddle Up: With Alvin Kamara sidelined by an ankle injury, the Saints leaned on Murray, and he delivered in a big way. He will be a must-start option against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 8 if Kamara remains out of the lineup.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed for 44 yards on eight carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He also caught three passes for 35 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Murray may have had a bigger role in the offense this week since Alvin Kamara entered the game with an injury. Murray will continue to receive a decent amount of touches each game but should not be more than a flex option in deeper leagues against favorable matchups.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Murray should be in uniform for Week 6 and could receive the start depending on Alvin Kamara's status. He can be a flex option if he starts but probably can be avoided if Kamara plays.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed seven times for 28 yards in Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added two grabs for six yards.
Huddle Up: Murray is a nice change of pace for starter Alvin Kamara, but his fantasy value is severely limited unless something happens to the starter. The Saints travel to meet the Jaguars in Week 6.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray ran four times for 14 yards in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: There was a train of thought that, minus Drew Brees, the Saints would turn to a two-headed rushing attack of Alvin Kamara and Murray. It's time to forget about that notion, and keep Murray glued to your bench until we see clear evidence of a sustainably increased role.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray carried the ball five times for seven yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Sept. 15. He added one catch for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Of all the players in the Big Easy, Murray might benefit the most statistically if Drew Brees is forced to miss significant time as the Saints could tweak their approach to feature the running game more frequently. Keep an eye out for a medical update on Brees.
