Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Murray’s 2020 looked a lot like his 1st season in New Orleans. He went from averaging 9.1 carries per game (in a season that Alvin Kamara missed 2 games) to posting 9.7 last fall.
  • Kamara and Murray both played 15 games in 2020. They each sat out Week 17 on the COVID-19 list.
  • Murray averaged 4.5 YPC after posting 4.4 YPC in ’19.
  • He saw 24% of the team’s red zone rush attempts, putting him behind Kamara (40.4%) and Taysom Hill (26.9%).
  • Murray’s 2.5 yards after contact mark was a dip from ’19 (3.16). He forced 13 fewer missed tackles on the same number of attempts.
  • Murray did see loaded boxes frequently. His rate of 36.3% 8+ man boxes ranked 5th highest among 55 qualifiers — but that nearly matched his ’19 tally (35.6%).
  • The 31-year-old is signed for 2 more seasons. For 2021, he projects as Kamara’s clear backup/early down compliment.
  • The Saints will return the same 5 O-line starters. They project as a top-10 run blocking unit, especially if 2nd-year Round 1 pick Cesar Ruiz takes a step forward.
  • Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston will battle for the starting QB job in training camp. Hill started 4 games in places of Drew Brees last year, but we expect Winston to get the Week 1 nod.
  • Expect both guys to start games this fall. Hill’s presence — either as the starter or a goal line replacement — will likely cap Murray’s TD ceiling.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

After some early-career injury issues, Murray’s experienced 4 straight healthy seasons. Credit the now 31-year-old for that.

2021 sees him return to a familiar role as the “1B’ rusher alongside Alvin Kamara. That role has produced 4 RB1 lines over the past 2 seasons — albeit at unpredictable times. He’s been the RB34/RB29 dating back to 2019.

He’s a usable fantasy back in the right matchup. But a lack of pass volume will continue to make him a low-ceiling weekly option.
