Summary

Mark Ingram's indecision created a window for Murray to move to New Orleans, which is welcome for anyone, but especially when Murray got a raise from his 2018 pay with Minnesota. He'll move into one of the best RB2 roles for fantasy. Expect high ceiling games in Saints blowout wins, and there will be a few, and Rb2/Flex consideration on the back of short yardage touchdown upside in the rest of the games. He has massive Alvin Kamara injury upside and is an underrated pass catcher who could get more opportunities as a receiver out of the backfield in this offense. (May 1)
