Vikings | Latavius Murray not traveling

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 20:48:33 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Latavius Murray (ankle) was limited during practice Tuesday, Aug. 8, and said he is not traveling with the team for their preseason game Thursday, Aug. 10. He said he is not sure if he will play in the second preseason game but knows he will be ready for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Murray just started practicing this week, so it is not known when he will be able to play in a game.

Vikings | Latavius Murray returns from PUP list

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 12:57:50 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Look for the Vikings to take it easy with their new running back leading up to the regular season. Dalvin Cook has impressed so far and should stay ahead of Murray, but Murray is ideal for short-yardage and goal-line situations. That being said, Cook has low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 potential, with Murray slotting as more of a flex play.

Vikings | Latavius Murray hopes to practice soon

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 16:41:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) said he has two encouraging individual workouts this week and believes he is close to taking part in practice. Murray has been on the Physically Unable to Perform list since the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is expected to be a part of a committee at the position with Dalvin Cook and Jerick McKinnon also on the roster. Murray probably will be used mostly as a ball carrier and will only see a few targets in the passing game. Owners will need to keep an eye on his role during the preseason to see how he will be used. He could be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back depending on his role.

Vikings | No timetable for Latavius Murray

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 11:42:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) does not have a specific timetable for when he will return from the Physically Unable to Perform list, although he did say it would be before the regular season starts.

Fantasy Tip: The longer Murray is on the PUP list the more of a concern his availability is. Cook gains value every day Murray isn't activated. Cook is expected to start anyway, but expect Murray to vulture some touchdowns and to be used more as he becomes healthier.

Vikings | Latavius Murray shows up early

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 19:26:38 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) was one of the veterans to show up with the rookies for an early start to training camp Sunday, July 23. "It'll be helpful for me just being here," Murray said. "I'm happy to be able to dive back into the playbook, and again, I want to learn it as much as I can, inside and out, so when I'm back on the field I'm able to play fast."

Fantasy Tip: Murray has been limited this offseason by an ankle injury, which could allow rookie Dalvin Cook to close the gap. Both backs should be viewed as RB3 candidates for now, but Cook has the higher ceiling.

Vikings | Latavius Murray falling back

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 08:51:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) is losing his grip on the starting job due to the addition of RB Dalvin Cook. Murray has missed the entire offseason recovering from ankle surgery, and Cook's blend of speed and versatility coincides with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur's stylistic history at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was an RB2 when he signed in the offseason, but Cook's arrival has to demote Murray into the RB3 range in fantasy. Cook has upside in the system as an RB3, but Murray has the advantage in experience. This will be a battle to keep a close eye on moving forward.
