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.

Updating a previous story, New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray (quadriceps) is day-to-day, according to a source Wednesday, Jan. 13. Murray's status is believed to be 'up in the air.'
Huddle Up: Alvin Kamara would likely need to shoulder a larger load if Murray can't play this weekend, but there's a chance Dwayne Washington could get some limited goal-line action.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray (thigh) exited the NFC wild-card game against the Chicago Bears in the third quarter due to a thigh injury and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Murray has run for nine yards and also scored on a swing pass, posting two grabs for 11 yards before departing. He doesn't have a ton of fantasy appeal in standard play during the season, but in postseason fantasy and DFS he has a little bit of appeal when healthy.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray on Saturday, Jan. 2, was ruled out of Sunday's Week 17 game against the Carolina Panthers as a close contact to RB Alvin Kamara who tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week.
Huddle Up: Those hoping to capitalize on Kamara's absence with Murray will now have to find a Plan B as the Saints' entire running back room was essentially ruled out Saturday.
