Baltimore Ravens RB Latavius Murray carried the ball nine times for 36 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2.
Huddle Up: With 64 yards on 17 carries, Murray isn't exactly gashing opposing defenses, but he's scored in each of his two games with the club and looks to be working ahead of Ty'Son Williams in short yardage and goalline situations. He's worth owning and might offer flex appeal in deeper leagues.

The Baltimore Ravens plan to use a committee of running backs in Week 2's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. RBs Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman are all expected to see carries versus the Chiefs and the Ravens plan to ride the hot hand.
Huddle Up: Until someone emerges as the clear favorite in the Baltimore backfield, this is a situation for fantasy owners to avoid, especially since the Ravens won't play until Sunday night this week. Owners should look for safer alternatives for their lineups.

Baltimore Ravens RB Latavius Murray rushed 10 times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders. He was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: Murray's stat line might not jump off the page, but it's pretty good considering he just signed with the team a few days ago. Not only did he play, he had double-digit carries and a touchdown. He should split time with Ty'son Williams going forward, and he is worth scooping up for fantasy depth at the running back spot. The Ravens host the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2.

Updating an earlier report, Baltimore Ravens RB Latavius Murray's one-year deal is for the veteran minimum but includes incentives that could wind up around $2 million.

Free-agent RB Latavius Murray (Saints) agreed to a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens Friday, Sept. 10. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Murray doesn't have a lot to compete with in Baltimore with J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee) possibly out for the season. Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman are looming on the practice squad, and Ty'Son Williams and Trenton Cannon don't exactly strike fear in the battle for a roster spot. Williams is the starter for now, but Murray could work his way into a decent role. Murray is worth a scoop and stash off waivers.

Free-agent RB Latavius Murray (Saints) is working on finalizing a deal with the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Sept. 9, according to league sources.
Huddle Up: Murray is coming off an efficient season with the Saints, and with Baltimore's backfield ravaged by injuries, he could work himself into a prominent role in short order. Scoop him up if he is available.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray reportedly refused a pay cut and was released Tuesday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: This is far from a shock to anyone who watched the difference between Murray and Tony Jones Jr. during the preseason, but it is still a bit surprising considering Murray has been productive throughout his time with the Saints and is coming off his best season with them. Murray is unlikely to fetch more than a one-year contract from anyone, but he should have some suitors over the next couple of days, such as the Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons. Murray's release obviously cements Jones as Alvin Kamara's handcuff and a possible RB3 option in fantasy.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray (quadriceps) has been declared inactive for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Alvin Kamara will receive most of the work at running back with Murray sidelined and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

The New Orleans Saints are not expected to have RB Latavius Murray (quadriceps) available for their NFC Divisional Round game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Murray had been listed as questionable on the injury report after only being able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Jan. 15. Assuming that he is declared inactive this week, RB Alvin Kamara should be in line for approximately 20 touches against the Tampa Bay defense, with RB Ty Montgomery worthy of consideration as an inexpensive flier in DFS.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray (quad) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Jan. 15, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Divisional Round game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: It's encouraging for his prospects to play that he was able to get in a limited session Friday after missing the first two practices of the week, but he was unlikely to play much of a role in this game anyway with the Buccaneers being so stout against the run. His potential absence would likely lock Alvin Kamara in for 20 touches and could make Ty Montgomery worthy of a punt play in DFS.
