Vikings' Latavius Murray: Still has lingering ankle soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray said he still deals with general soreness in his surgically repaired ankle, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

This is at least the second time this season that Murray has mentioned the lingering effects of his March ankle surgery. Of course, it was a much bigger concern when he talked about the ankle in early October, at which point he'd taken only 14 carries for 38 yards in four games. He's since emerged as the more reliable half of a split backfield with Jerick McKinnon, averaging 3.9 yards per carry on 15.7 totes per game (60.9 yards) since Dalvin Cook suffered a torn ACL in Week 4. Given that Murray hasn't been listed on the injury report recently, his ankle doesn't seem like a major concern heading into a Week 15 home matchup with an injury-riddled Cincinnati defense. He'll try to bounce back from a nine-carry, 14-yard showing in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Panthers.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Held to 20 yards from scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray rushed nine times for 14 yards and caught both of his targets for six yards in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Carolina.

Murray got two more touches than Jerick McKinnon, but gained 35 fewer yards from scrimmage. The former Raiders running back came in with 323 yards and four touchdowns on the ground over the previous four weeks, so this performance should be viewed as an outlier rather than a precursor of more struggles to come.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Totals 97 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray carried 16 times for 76 yards and caught all three targets for an additional 21 yards during Sunday's 14-9 win over the Falcons.

Murray gashed the Falcons on several occasions, including a 30-yard gain where he bounced off multiple defenders before going to the ground. His contributions in the passing game marked his best performance of the season in that regard and he out-touched Jerick McKinnon yet again. Murray has averaged 80.8 rushing yards per game over the last four, with four touchdowns during that span as well. He's emerging as a solid weekly contributor and will look to continue his recent success next week against the Panthers.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Finds end zone in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray rushed 20 times for 84 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 30-23 win over Detroit.

Somewhat quietly, Murray has now compiled 399 rushing yards and five scores through his past five games. He continues to split snaps and carries with Jerick McKinnon, but the timeshare hasn't significantly hindered the fantasy value of either back. After all, a two-man committee in a high-volume rushing attack still provides plenty of opportunities. Additionally, Murray's value is buoyed by his usage near the goal line, as he's now up to 27 red-zone carries through the past eight games.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Tallies pair of rushing scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray rushed 15 times for 95 yards and two touchdowns while also hauling in his only target for one yard in Sunday's 24-7 win over the Rams.

Murray and Jerick McKinnon notably came within just one carry of a 50/50 split of rushing touches, but the former was clearly the more effective of the two. The five-year veteran equaled his best yards-per-carry figure of the season (6.3) while also logging his third and fourth rushing scores in the last four contests. Murray has yet to reach the 20-carry mark in any game this season, but the 27-year-old appears to finally be at full health following offseason ankle surgery if his recent explosiveness is any indication. He'll look to continue surging against the Lions in a Thanksgiving Day divisional clash.
