  • Posted: 9/23/2018 1:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed just twice for one yard in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills and he added five receptions for 30 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Murray was shouldering the load, kinda, with Dalvin Cook on the shelf. However, the Vikings abandoned the run early with the Bills building a 27-0 lead by halftime. That wasn't what fantasy owners who scooped up Murray this week were expecting. With a short week, Murray won't have a lot of time to prepare for the defensive-minded Rams in Week 4. He is only worth a look as a low-end RB3 in most fantasy formats if Cook remains sidelined due to his hamstring injury.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 4:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed four times for 19 yards in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Murray didn't have a very productive day, but he could be in line for a much bigger role after Dalvin Cook left in overtime with a hamstring injury. If Cook is forced to miss time then Murray could re-emerge as a solid RB3 or flex play in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 5:14am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray was utilized on 14 snaps (20 percent of the offense) Sunday, Sept. 9, in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Murray has taken a backseat to Dalvin Cook, and he still holds RB5 value. However, there will be weeks like this.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 2:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 11 times for a team-best 42 yards in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Murray was leaned upon late to salt the team away. He averaged 3.8 yards per carry, which wasn't great, but it was much more productive than Dalvin Cook's 2.5 yards per tote. Both players will look for much better results in the Week 2 road game against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 2:00pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed for 12 yards on six carries during the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, Aug. 18. He also fumbled the ball twice during the game.

    Huddle Up: Murray will serve as the No. 2 running back for the Vikings this season and probably will only see limited touches each week. He could a handcuff to Dalvin Cook in some leagues but likely will be a No. 4 running back on most rosters.

  • Posted: 3/15/2018 6:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray has agreed to restructure his contract and will remain with the team, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Murray should have a solid role on offense in 2018 but will lose some work to Dalvin Cook. He can be a No. 3 running back in standard leagues but will be less valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 3/15/2018 5:26pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray could be released if he does not agree to restructure his contract. His $5.15 million salary for 2018 will become guaranteed if he is on the roster Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Murray is coming off a solid 2017 season where he rushed for 842 yards and eight touchdowns, but he probably will lose touches with Dalvin Cook returning from injury. He would receive interest if he becomes available in free agency but likely will be part of a committee no matter where he plays. He can be a No. 3 fantasy running back in 2018 depending on his role.

  • Posted: 1/21/2018 8:10pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/14/2018 5:50pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray ran 19 times for 50 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/23/2017 8:49pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 21 times for 69 yards and caught one pass for six yards in a 16-0 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Efficiency hasn't been Murray's strong suit, but his heavy workload makes him a quality flex play with RB2 upside.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 1:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed for 76 yards and one touchdowns on 20 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15. He also caught one pass for 28 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Murray bounced back from his disappointing Week 14 performance and rushed for at least 75 yards for the four time in the last five games. He will continue to receive most of the carries during games and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 2:18pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 1:11pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed for 76 yards on 16 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 21 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Murray has rushed for at least 76 yards in each of the last three games and has four touchdowns in the last four games. He should continue to see more of the carries during games and can be a No. 2 running back in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 1:26pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Murray has been 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.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 3:41pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 9:54am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed for 39 yards on 19 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Murray received a season-high 19 carries against the Browns but was not able to build off his terrific Week 7 performance. He will continue to share work with Jerick McKinnon but probably will only be a flex option in most standard leagues.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 1:53pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed for 113 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Murray had by far his best performance of the season against the Ravens and has received at least 12 carries in each of the last three games. He can be a solid No. 2 running back next week because of the matchup.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 8:48pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray is averaging 2.6 yards on 25 carries in the two games since RB Dalvin Cook (knee) was injured.

    Huddle Up: Murray has been splitting time with Jerick McKinnon in Cook's absence, but McKinnon has been the more explosive and versatile back. Murray is a low-upside flex play against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7, and McKinnon has RB2 upside in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 4:20pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for just 28 yards in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers and he added one catch for nine yards.

    Huddle Up: Murray just doesn't look comfortable in the Minnesota offense, as Jerick McKinnon is much more familiar with the system and way more productive since Dalvin Cook went down. Murray admitted two weeks ago he isn't 100 percent after offseason surgery and he certainly looks like it.

  • Posted: 10/9/2017 11:30pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray registered 12 rushes for 31 yards in the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 9, against the Chicago Bears. He added two catches for 12 yards.

    Huddle Up: In Minnesota's first game without Dalvin Cook, Murray actually began the game as the starter in the backfield, but it was virtually all downhill from there, as Jerick McKinnon took over shortly after and garnered significantly more touches than the former Oakland Raider. McKinnon seems to have taken over as the Vikings' lead back, which makes Murray droppable in the majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/2/2017 8:25am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) said his ankle isn't 100 percent after offseason surgery, but he's ready for a big workload if needed in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Jerick McKinnon is also dealing with an ankle issue, and their health will be a big factor in how the load is split. Murray becomes a flex option if Dalvin Cook (knee) indeed tore his ACL.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 3:04pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed seven times for 21 yards in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions while adding two receptions for eight yards.

    Huddle Up: Murray saw a season-high nine touches, as he and Jerick McKinnon are expected to shoulder the load now that Dalvin Cook suffered a knee injury and could be lost for the season. Murray is worth scooping up in all fantasy leagues, as he is fresh and should get plenty of looks going forward. The Vikings meet the Bears on Monday Night Football in Week 5.
