Latavius Murray's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Latavius Murray to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 111 projected fantasy points puts him at #30 behind Melvin Gordon and ahead of Matt Breida. He has averaged 6.83 fantasy points in his past 18 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 7.9 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#34) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #37 ranked running back. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 86%, he is the #37 most highly owned running back. Latavius Murray is expected to slightly improve on last season's #31 fantasy position rank.
