  • Latavius Murray Grabs Lead Role In Vikings Backfield With Two Touchdowns

    Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns in the Vikings 24-7 win over the Rams. Murray and Jerick McKinnon have battled for touches in the Minnesota backfield since the team lost rookie Dalvin Cook to a season-ending injury earlier in the season. Murray has emerged as the go-to back over the past few weeks and this performance might have secured the role of full-time starter moving forward. McKinnon will still steal carries to change the pace but Murray is the lead back heading into Week 12.

  • Latavius Murray To Steal Carries From Jerick McKinnon In Week 11

    Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray has earned his way into more playing time heading into a Week 11 matchup with the Rams. Murray is out-touching running back Jerick McKinnon in the backfield, racking up 69 carries over his last four games played. He has two touchdowns in that span but lacks the pass-catching abilities that McKinnon brings to the table. The Vikings take on a Rams defense that has allowed the fourth most fantasy points to opposing runners. They both will steal fantasy points from each other, but McKinnon should be the preferred play this week because of his potential in the passing game against a vulnerable Rams defense. Murray will only be a RB3/FLEX in Week 11.

  • Jerick McKinnon Takes Backseat To Latavius Murray

    Minnesota Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon totaled only 47 yards in the Vikings win over the Redskins. He carried the ball 10 times for 32 and pitched in only two receptions for 15 yards. From the moment rookie running back Dalvin Cook tore his ACL, McKinnon was tabbed as the next man up. But Latavius Murray has returned from injury and has posted some solid fantasy stat-lines. It's up in the air on which running back will get the most touches on a week-to-week basis, affecting both McKinnon and Murray's value moving forward.
