Latavius Murray's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Latavius Murray was not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He was the #144 ranked fantasy player this season and the #32 RB. Even though he missed a few games he played enough so that his overall fantasy rank was better than what it was based on average fantasy points (#47 RB). He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 5 games he averaged 13.8 fantasy points which was higher than his start (3.7 FP) and his ending average (3.8 FP). His fantasy production is more volatile that most players based on having a relatively high standard deviation. When he is good, he is really good but when he is off, he is really off. He averaged 6.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 22 fantasy points. Latavius Murray (2019 Season Projection: 161 Rush, 641 Yards, 8.4 TDs, 15 Rec, 94 Yards, 0.2 TDs) is projected to slightly improve in the upcoming season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #30 player at his position.
