Summary

With Dalvin Cook coming back from the ACL injury it is important to have a solid backup in place and that is exactly what you get with Latavius Murray. Murray proved that he can handle a high volume of touches when given the opportunity. Despite Cook starting 2017 ahead of Murray for the teams first four games, he still managed to finish as the 21st ranked fantasy running back. Murray ran for 842 yards and scored 8 touchdowns. Even with Cook ahead of him on the depth chart, he will demand a handful of carries each game and could be in line for the goal line work. Over his last two seasons (30 games), he has totaled 20 touchdowns, so those numbers alone will earn him some valuable touches. (May 22)
