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.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray carried six times for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Houston Texans on Monday, Sept. 9. He also had two grabs for four yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Murray is filling the role of the departed Mark Ingram, giving Alvin Kamara an occasional breather along the way. He'll be a decent low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option, with higher value should Kamara fall to injury. The Saints travel to meet the Rams in Week 2.

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray could be a free-agent target of the Philadelphia Eagles, in the opinion of NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt, who believes Murray's abilities as a receiver and reasonable price tag could make him part of a timeshare with holdover RB Josh Adams.
Huddle Up: Murray isn't the most explosive back available, but his desire for more work and underrated ability as a receiver could make him part of a 1a/1b situation with the Eagles. Rosenblatt isn't alone in connecting Philadelphia and Murray, either, so it's definitely something to watch.

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed nine times for 22 yards in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions and he added two grabs for six yards.

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed four times for 11 yards in Week 13 against the New England Patriots and he added two catches for just three yards.
