Vikings' Latavius Murray: Finishes overtime period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray carried four times for 19 yards during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Packers.

Murray received just two touches during regulation, but he finished the overtime period with a pair of carries to setup a field goal attempt which Daniel Carlson ultimately missed. His involvement increased after Dalvin Cook left with an apparent hamstring injury, though Cook said after the game he was merely dealing with cramps. With this in mind, Murray should once again serve as Cook's backup next week against the Bills, though he could see additional work if the score gets out of hand.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Scores TD in Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had 10 carries for 24 yards, including a one-yard touchdown, in Friday's preseason win over Seattle.

Murray bounced back after struggling in his previous preseason game with two fumbles. Dalvin Cook got two carries in Friday's game, showing he's set to return from last year's torn ACL. It's not clear if the Vikings will ease Cook back into action and use Murray more at the early points of the season, but Murray could carve out a goal-line role in any scenario.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Struggles in Saturday's preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had six carries for 12 yards and fumbled twice (losing one) in Saturday's preseason loss to Jacksonville.

After an explosive performance in the first preseaon game (four carries for 48 yards), Murray struggled Saturday against a better defense. His fumbles likely are not a worry. His playing time early in the season will likely depend on whether the Vikings want to ease Dalvin Cook back into action after returning from an ACL injury.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Restructures deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray restructured his contract with the Vikings, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Most of the contract restructures at this time of year merely convert base salaries into signing bonuses, pushing the cap hit into future seasons to free up room for the current year. Murray may actually have taken some form of pay cut, as his $5.1 million non-guaranteed base salary for 2018 feels a bit pricey for a guy who averaged 3.9 yards on 216 carries and 6.9 yards on 15 receptions last season. The Vikings do have a need for his services, given that Jerick McKinnon is signing with San Francisco while Dalvin Cook recovers from a torn ACL. Murray's likely role entering the season will depend on Cook's progression in the rehab process.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Uncertain to return to Minnesota in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman suggested Wednesday that Murray isn't guaranteed to return to the team in 2018, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "We've discussed a lot of things," Spielman said when asked if the Vikings were set with Dalvin Cook (knee) and Murray as the team's primary running backs next season. "We're very excited, Dalvin continues to rehab. We're very excited about the progress he's making and anxious to see what we are with him in the fold along with whatever combination is there."

Though Spielman didn't say explicitly that Murray wouldn't be retained, it's clear the Vikings are still weighing whether the 28-year-old is worth bringing back at a cap hit of $6.35 million for 2018, which would make him one of the higher-paid running backs in the league. While Murray gave the Vikings quality production upon stepping in as the primary back once Cook suffered a season-ending ACL tear in Week 4, finishing with a team-high 842 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, it may be difficult for the team to justify keeping Murray at that price when he would likely be limited to a complementary role behind a healthy Cook in 2018. Assuming Murray is amendable to it, the Vikings may explore approaching his representatives about restructuring his contract so he could remain with the team at a more affordable price. If Murray isn't willing to renegotiate, however, the Vikings could cut him with little repercussions before March 16, when his $5.15 million base salary for 2018 would become guaranteed.
