Vikings | Latavius Murray bottled up

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 20:10:30 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed six times for 18 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: It was a forgettable end to what turned out to be a solid season for Murray. However, Dalvin Cook is in line to return in 2018, so Murray will likely be no more than a handcuff.

Fantasy Tip: Murray and Jerick McKinnon shared the backfield carries at a 2-to-1 split, with Murray doing most of the lifting. Look for the same distribution in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next week. Murray is a decent RB2 or flex fantasy option in DFS play next week.

Vikings | Latavius Murray bottled up in Carolina

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:18:40 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray ran nine times for just 14 yards in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers and he added two grabs for six yards on his two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Murray had been gobbling up huge chunks of real estate in the past few weeks, averaging 4.0 yards or better per carry in each of his past four games with four rushing touchdowns. He struggled against the stout Panthers rush defense, however. He'll try and rebound in Week 15 against the visiting Bengals.

Vikings | Latavius Murray shows up in ground game

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:26:36 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray notched 20 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Give Murray some butter 'cause he's on a roll, now scoring four times in his last three outings. His main value is in standard leagues as he has only caught seven passes on the year. Still, he needs to be in the RB2 conversation going forward.

Vikings | Latavius Murray punches two in

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:41:24 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for 95 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Murray started out slow, but he has emerged as the top back in the Twin Cities. The former Raiders back has 15 or more carries in each of his past five games while finding the end zone four times in the past four outings. He'll look to keep it going on Thanksgiving against the Lions in Week 12.

Vikings | Latavius Murray posts 68 yards, TD

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:50:43 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 17 times for 68 yards with a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has posted 12 or more rushes in each of his past five games, but he really has just one big game during the span. The good news is that he averaged 4.0 yards per tote in this one, his second-best average of the season, and he scored a touchdown for the second time in three games. He remains more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in most formats.
