Vikings' Latavius Murray: Just four carries Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had four carries for 11 yards and two receptions for three yards in Sunday's loss at New England.

Murray played just 12 snaps compared to 47 for Dalvin Cook (who had nine carries for 84 yards). Cook looked sharp (9.3 YPC) and back to full speed after earlier hamstring issues, so Murray could be relegated to a decreased role in the final four games of the regular season.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Leads backfield in carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray carried the ball 11 times for 33 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Packers.

The Vikings featured a more balanced offensive gameplan compared to last week's loss to the Bears, but neither Murray nor Dalvin Cook was able to do much on the ground against the Packers. The veteran has seen his role reduced over the last three games since Cook's return from injury, but the two have maintained a fairly even split in terms of rush attempts over that span. Murray doesn't possess enough upside to be worth looks in standard formats while in a timeshare, as his biggest fantasy impact is acting as a thorn in the side of those with shares in Cook. He remains a low-end option for Week 13's matchup against the Patriots.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Finds paydirt in Cook's return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray rushed 10 times for 31 yards and a touchdown while catching his lone target for 16 yards in Sunday's 24-9 win over the Lions.

Murray was outplayed by the returning Dalvin Cook (hamstring), who turned 10 carries and four catches into 109 scrimmage yards. Despite his lack of yardage by comparison, the veteran running back managed to salvage his fantasy day thanks to a one-yard rushing score on the opening drive. Murray could see his role drastically decrease after Minnesota's Week 10 bye if Cook's deemed healthy enough to operate as the primary backfield option.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Could lose work to Cook again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray may lose 15-to-20 snaps to Dalvin Cook (hamstring) during Sunday's home game against the Lions, ESPN.com's Courtney Cronin.

Cook tentatively is expected to return from a four-game absence, though it sounds like Murray would still be a clear favorite to lead the Minnesota backfield in snaps and touches. While the possibility of a workload split necessitates a significant downgrade to Murray's Week 9 prospects, he does at least draw a first-rate matchup with a Lions defense ranked 30th in yards allowed per carry (5.1) and 32nd in rushing yards allowed per game (144.6). Averaging 20 touches, 112 scrimmage yards and 1.3 touchdowns the past three weeks, Murray will have a solid case for low-end RB1 status if Cook ends up being held out for another game.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Hits paydirt in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray carried the ball 13 times for 56 yards and a touchdown and caught five of six targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss to New Orleans.

Dalvin Cook (hamstring) remained out of action, allowing Murray to lead the backfield for yet another week. The veteran was able to overcome a tough matchup against the Saints' No. 1 ranked run defense, gaining 4.3 yards per carry and finding the end zone for the third consecutive week. Cook may not return until after the team's Week 10 bye, so Murray should be in line for another heavy workload against the Lions on Sunday.
