Free Agent Focus

Week 5 Free Agent Focus

By Staff 11:10pm EDT 10/1/17



Latavius Murray, RB, Vikings

Blind-bid recommendation: 50-60%

Jerick McKinnon had been playing more snaps than Murray before Sunday, but it was Murray stepping in after Dalvin Cook suffered what’s believed to be an ACL tear against the Lions.

Murray logged all 7 of his rushing attempts in the 2nd half (vs. 2 for McKinnon) and matched McKinnon’s 2 targets. Both figure to get touches the rest of the way, but Murray’s the guy they signed to a 3-year free-agent deal in the spring – with McKinnon already around.

A trip to Chicago lies ahead in Week 5, with home games against Green Bay and Baltimore the following 2 weeks.
