Murray excelling in camp | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Raiders reporter Vic Tafur says RB Latavius Murray is “cruising” through the early part of training camp. Murray’s reportedly improved in the passing game, where he averaged a mere 5.7 yards per catch in 2015. It’s tough to project him to catch another 41 balls, but the 26-year-old should approach another 300-touch season if he stays healthy. With that certainly comes top 10 fantasy upside.

The Saints are "not likely" to have RB Latavius Murray (quad) or QB Taysom Hill (knee) active for today's game against the Buccaneers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Those absences would boost the touch and scoring upside for RB Alvin Kamara, as well as the scoring upside for QB Drew Brees. Hill has often replaced Brees near the goal line in recent weeks. Kamara has posted lackluster yardage totals in each meeting with Tampa this year but also scored on the ground and caught 5 passes in each game.

Saints RB Latavius Murray (quad) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bucs after returning a limited practice on Friday. He's expected to be a game-time decision. We'll look for further updates but might not know Murray's status until a little after 6 pm ET on Sunday.

Saints RB Latavius Murray (quad) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's certainly in danger of missing Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bucs, which would leave RB Alvin Kamara in a workhorse role. Check back Friday night for another update on Murray.

Saints RB Latavius Murray (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that his status is "up in the air" for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bucs. Murray's absence would mean a significant boost in touches for RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints RB Latavius Murray suffered a quad injury late in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Bears and didn't play in the 4th. We'll see if he's able to play in this weekend's Divisional Round game vs. the Bucs. If not, RB Alvin Kamara will be in for a volume boost.
