Summary

It was a bit of a letdown when the Saints replaced Mark Ingram with Latavius Murray last offseason despite the two signing similar contracts, but Murray didn't let the team or fantasy players down when he was called upon to start two games. He was an elite fantasy option with over 30 PPR points, at least 150 total yards, at least five receptions, and two scores in both starts. Unfortunately, he did not fill the old Ingram role when Alvin Kamara was healthy and projects as a high-value handcuff with desperation play value when Kamara is in. The good news is that even though he proved that he is still in top form, his ADP is down from last year's price and he is available in the 10th round or later, a reasonable price for a player that can be a league winner if the running back ahead of him goes down.
