Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray restructured his contract ahead of the deadline Friday, when he would've been guaranteed $5.15 million. Murray ran for 842 yards and eight touchdowns for the Vikes last season, but he saw more work than expected when rookie Dalvin Cook blew out his knee early in the year. With Cook expected back healthy in 2018 in the lead role, Murray will be unlikely to put up those kind of numbers again. He'll mostly be a short-yardage, touchdown-dependent fantasy back.
Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray has agreed to restructure his contract and will remain with the team, according to sources.
Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray could be released if he does not agree to restructure his contract. His $5.15 million salary for 2018 will become guaranteed if he is on the roster Friday, March 16.
Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray totaled only 29 all-purpose yards as the Vikings were bounced from the playoffs by the Eagles 38-7. Murray saw only six carries in the game for 18 yards, his lowest carry total since September 24th. Turnovers really took the Vikings out of their game plan and Murray never had a chance to get going. Murray came on slowly this season and never got a true opportunity until rookie standout Dalvin Cook tore his ACL. Once given the chance, Murray put up eight rushing touchdowns, 842 yards and had eight games of 68 rushing yards or more. Murray may struggle to repeat those numbers next year with Cook re-entering the mix but certainly has helped his value heading into the offseason.
Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed six times for 18 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.
Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray will have a tough matchup Sunday against the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. It will be tough sledding against a defensive unit that has allowed the second fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Up until the Cowboys Ezekiell Elliott's 103 yards in Week 17, the Eagles had not allowed a single 100-yard runner all season. Murray has become a reliable force in the red zone, scoring eight rushing touchdowns in the regular season and punching in for another score last week in the playoffs against the Saints. But the Eagles have allowed only three rushing touchdowns since Week 4, making this one of the stingiest match ups Murray will see all season. Murray could struggle to post a solid fantasy stat-line and will be a touchdown-dependent option this championship weekend.
Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray ran 19 times for 50 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14.
Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray rushed for 50 yards on 19 carries, including a red zone rushing touchdown in the second quarter of the Vikings 29-24 last-second win over the Saints. Murray picked up the tough yards and again showed, as he has frequently in the second half of the season, he has a nose for the end zone. Murray has been a revelation in the second half of the season and produced a solid fantasy stat-line in the tough fought playoff battle. He will, however, have his hands full next week when the Vikings will try to advance to the Super Bowl against a stingy Eagles defensive front.
Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray will go up against a Saints defense that has not allowed a 100-yard rusher since Week 11. Murray, however, has dominated opponents at home over the past two months and will be counted on to carry the load for the Vikings. Over his last four home games, Murray has six rushing touchdowns and at least 76 rushing yards in each game.

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray has rushed for 634 yards with six rushing touchdowns over his last nine games heading into the final matchup of the season against the Bears. He is averaging 70 yards on the ground per game over that span and will face a tough Bears defense that has allowed the sixth fewest fantasy points to opposing backs. They also have not allowed a rushing touchdown since Week 9 and Murray could struggle to make sizable gains. Add that to the fact that backup Jerick McKinnon put up 146 total yards against the Bears in Week 5 and Murray is no higher than a fringe fantasy starter in Week 17.

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray this season has 662 rushing yards, averaging 3.8 yards per carry with six touchdowns. Most of those numbers have come over the last eight games, and he now will get a Packers defense on Saturday night that has allowed the 10th most fantasy points to runners this season. Murray only put up 28 rushing yards in Week 6 against Green Bay, but he is a completely different runner at this point in the season. Since Week 12, the Packers have allowed 90 or more rushing yards to three different running backs, and the Vikings should have their way with a Green Bay team playing out the string. Murray is a solid RB2 for Week 16.
Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray grounded out 76 yards in the rushing game, including a 1-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Murray led the team with 20 carries in the game and once again put in a very workmanlike effort for the playoff bound Vikings.

Murray rises back up to RB2 status for Week 15.
Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray mustered only 14 yards on nine carries in the Vikings 31-24 loss to the Panthers.

His 1.6 yards per carry is his worst of the season and his nine carries was his lowest touch-total since October 1st against the Lions. Murray will be a high-risk fantasy choice looking forward to next week.
