Chargers' Kenneth Murray: Benched in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray recorded just four tackles in Sunday's loss to the Raiders before being benched for Denzel Perryman, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Murray had become the team's defensive signal-caller, playing 100 percent of the team's snaps in each of the last three games. However, coach Anthony Lynn evidently didn't like what we saw Sunday, removing the 2020 first-round pick for "communication issues." Considering the draft capital invested in Murray this past offseason, it's hard to imagine this benching is more than a one-week thing, but it's a disappointing setback regardless for the Oklahoma product after he seemed to be growing into the starting role over the course of the season.

Chargers' Kenneth Murray: Continues to rack up tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray recorded 10 tackles in the team's Week 4 loss to the Buccaneers.

Murray tied for the team lead with 10 tackles, his second double-digit effort of his rookie season. He has yet to make much of an impact beyond that, however, with only a tackle for a loss and no sacks. Still, he's a stalwart in the middle of the Chargers defense, logging a 97 percent snap rate in Week 4.

Chargers' Kenneth Murray: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray posted 10 tackles (four solo) and a pass defended in the 23-20 overtime loss Sunday to the Chiefs.

It's clear Murray has taken over the primary starting spot at inside linebacker, posting a second consecutive 60-plus-snap performance. As a result, the 2020 first-round pick now leads the team in tackles and should continue to be a quality source of production in IDP leagues given his consistent role.

Chargers' Kenneth Murray: Tallies eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray tallied eight tackles in Week 1 against the Bengals.

Murray finished second on the team in tackles in his NFL debut. He didn't add any explosive plays, but his usage supports the notion he'll be a key member of the defense, considering he was on the field for 91 percent of defensive snaps.

Chargers' Kenneth Murray: Set for starting MLB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray is expected to be the starting middle linebacker entering 2020, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Murray's status as a 2020 first-round pick all but assured him of the role regardless, but a tremendous training camp has drawn a healthy amount of praise. Perhaps even more encouraging for IDP users, head coach Anthony Lynn and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley have suggested Murray will be a "three-down backer," which should provide plenty of tackle opportunities for the downhill thumper. With Denzel Perryman all but pushed aside from the starting lineup, it's entirely possible Murray could post 100-plus tackles if he stays healthy.

Chargers' Kenneth Murray: Newest Charger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers selected Murray (hamstring) in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 23rd overall.

Los Angeles paid a heavy price to move back into the first round, giving up a second- and a third-round pick to the Patriots for the rights to No.23 overall. Murray is a twitched-up tackling machine, having racked up 257 tackles over his final two seasons at Oklahoma. On top of his tackling skills, Murray is remarkably toosly. He runs a 4.52 40-yard dash to go with a 38-inch vertical and he has an 80-inch wingspan. There will be a learning curve with his coverage recognition but the tools are there for Murray to be a success, and it's clear that the Chargers are fully bought in on him considering the draft capital they paid to get him.
