  • Latavius Murray To Operate As Lead Back In Week 12

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray (wrist) was removed from the Week 12 injury report on Friday and will play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, a defense that is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to RBs per game in half-point PPR settings this year. The Broncos waived Melvin Gordon III and Chase Edmonds (ankle) is on Injured Reserve, so Murray should benefit as the unquestioned lead back for the Broncos this weekend. In his five games with Denver, Murray has 63 carries for 209 yards (3.3 yards per carry) and three touchdowns, adding 11 catches for 56 yards. The 32-year-old is slightly more attractive as an RB3/flex in fantasy lineups, but his lack of efficiency in one of the league's worst offenses shouldn't inspire much confidence, even in a good matchup.

  • Latavius Murray Limited Again In Practice Thursday

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray (wrist) was limited in practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Murray's status is worth watching heading into this weekend's game against the Carolina Panthers. If for some reason he's unable to play, the Broncos would be extremely thin in the backfield after releasing Melvin Gordon III earlier this week. Chase Edmonds (ankle) is on Injured Reserve. If he's active, Murray will be Denver's primary back and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in Denver's anemic offense. With Gordon gone and Edmonds on the shelf, Marlon Mack is now the handcuff option for fantasy managers that have Murray rostered.

  • Latavius Murray A Low-End RB3/Flex Against Raiders

    Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III remains the team's "starter," but Latavius Murray continues to see his fair share of the backfield work. In his four games with Denver since Javonte Williams (knee) was lost for the season, Murray has seen 46 carries for 160 yards and two touchdowns, adding seven receptions on nine targets for 33 yards. In that same time frame, Gordon has seen 30 carries for 94 yards and a TD, adding nine catches (14 targets) for 86 yards. Murray will be facing a Raiders defense that is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to RBs in half-point PPR scoring, but this Broncos backfield timeshare is tough to trust in the lowest-scoring offense in the NFL. The 32-year-old will have to find the end zone to justify a starting lineup spot as a low-end, touchdown-dependent RB3/flex.

  • Latavius Murray Sees Team-High Nine Rushing Attempts

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray continued to share the backfield with Melvin Gordon III in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Murray had a team-high nine carries for just 24 yards (2.7 yards per carry), adding three catches on three targets for 23 receiving yards in the 17-10 loss. Gordon is the "starter," but Murray has out-carried him in three of the last four games and has also found the end zone two times. Recently acquired Chase Edmonds had three touches for only nine yards as the RB3 in this one, but he could be involved more down the stretch, further cementing both Murray and Gordon as volatile touchdown-dependent RB3/flex options in one of the worst offenses in football.
