Recent Player News

  • Posted: 1/2/2019 7:58pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray said he is open to re-signing with the Vikings this offseason but is not content to being in the backup role and wants to start in 2019.

    Huddle Up: Murray finished the season with 578 yards and six touchdowns, but it is not known if he will be able to find a starting job if he tests free agency. He has played well in the past and could be a No. 2 running back in standard leagues if he finds a starting job.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 2:40pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: As long as Dalvin Cook remains healthy then Murray has a very limited ceiling. Trust him as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option into Week 17 against the Bears if your league decides a champion in the final week.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 6:41pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Murray's workload has dried up significantly once Dalvin Cook returned from an injury and got back up to speed. Murray is worth keep around on the fantasy roster as a reserve, but he has very little use unless Cook goes back to the shelf.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 8:51pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 11 times for a team-high 33 yards in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: It was a slow go on the ground for the home team, but they came away with the victory. Murray remains a low-end RB3 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 13 against the New England Patriots.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 8:36pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed four times for five yards in a 25-20 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Chicago's tough defense may have contributed to his small workload, but Murray is going to play second fiddle to a healthy Dalvin Cook regardless.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 1:53pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray ran 10 times for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Detroit Lions and he added a 16-yard grab on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Dalvin Cook was back from injury and that hurt Murray's value, as it was back to an even split of the backfield carries. Cook averaging 8.9 yards per tote, while Murray had just 3.1 yards per rush. Murray's fantasy outlook after the bye in Week 10 is rather murky with Cook back.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 9:25am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray will still serve as the team's lead back Sunday., Nov. 4, with activated fellow RB Dalvin Cook expected to see a package of 15-20 snaps coming off a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: Murray has been averaging a healthy 18.3 touches the last four weeks with Cook sidelined, but even if that total sees a slight decrease Sunday, Murray still remains a solid RB2 play with six teams on bye and facing a Detroit Lions defense surrendering the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 7:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray faces the Detroit Lions in Week 9, and the Lions are allowing the second-most yards per carry and a league-high 144.6 rushing yards per game.

    Huddle Up: Murray has been rolling the last three games, averaging 5.4 yards per carry and scoring four times. If Dalvin Cook remains sidelined in Week 9, Murray can be a RB2 against the Lions.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 9:09pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray carried 13 times for 56 yards and a touchdown and added five catches for 39 yards in Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Murray had 28 yards rushing after three attempts on the first drive before the league's best run defense shut things down. Since coming out of the gates painfully slow over his first five games, Murray has been a fantasy stud in large part because he has found the end zone four times over that stretch. Assuming Dalvin Cook is forced to sit out at least one more game, Murray figures to be an easy RB2 start for his owners in Week 9 versus the Detroit Lions.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 2:11pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for 69 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 7 against the New York Jets and he added two grabs for 14 yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Murray was a hot property off of the waiver wire in fantasy leagues this week with Dalvin Cook back on the shelf. As long as Cook is sidelined Murray is a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats. The Vikings host the Saints in Week 8 on Sunday night.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 2:56pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed for 155 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Murray received most of the work at running back with Dalvin Cook sidelined and made the most of his opportunity. It is not known when Cook will return to the lineup, so owners should take a wait-and-see approach with Murray next week.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 9:59pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray carried 11 times for 42 yards and caught both of his targets for an additional 14 yards in Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Whereas Murray took advantage of a prolonged absence from Dalvin Cook last year, he has been thoroughly uninspiring in 2018. His 42 rushing yards tied his season high, and he has yet to score a touchdown this season after doing so eight times last year. He doesn't do enough in the passing game to make up for any inefficiency as a rusher, making him a weak flex option at best. Assuming Cook sits out again next week, Murray will have the best matchup he can ask for against the Arizona Cardinals.

  • 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.
