2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
In the offseason of the 2017 season, the Vikings threw cash at Murray hoping he could be the lead back in the offense. But shortly after signing he underwent ankle surgery, and because he was slow to recover, it looked like rookie sensation Dalvin Cook would relegate Murray to being "just another guy" on the team. Eventually Murray got healthy, Cook went down, and the Vikings were forced to lean on their free agent. And lean they did. Murray averaged over 14 attempts per game during his starts, with the team going an impressive 11-0 when he carried the ball at least 15 times. Sure, he mostly got only what was blocked, as evidenced by his 3.9 yards per carry average, but he scored 8 touchdowns and was well worth the offseason investment.

Unfortunately for Murray's fantasy value, the Vikings clearly view him as a backup, as the two sides reached a restructured contract agreement in the offseason, lowering his salary. Because he provides little in the passing game (15 receptions last year), Murray is merely a handcuff for Dalvin Cook owners and would only have fantasy value should Cook go down again with an injury.

News From The Past 90 Days
Dalvin Cook cleared for camp
RB completing rehab from Week 4 ACL tear
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 26, 4:45 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Nice work by Dalvin Cook in his rehab to the point where Vikings say he will be a full go as training camp ramps up. (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Barring a setback in August, Cook should be ready to hit the ground running in Week 1. The Vikings could play it cautious with him over the first month or so and let Latavius Murray get five to 10 touches per week, but this really should be Cook's backfield. He's a solid second-round pick in fantasy drafts and could easily return RB1 value.


Injury Dalvin Cook cleared for team drills
Lined up in backfield and WR during OTAs
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 5, 2:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Eight months after knee surgery, Dalvin Cook cleared another important milestone in his rehab from a torn ACL. The running back was cleared at the beginning of the week to do some team drills during Vikings organized team activities. The Vikings had Cook lined up both in the backfield and at wide receiver during Wednesday’s practice, which was the third of the offseason open to reporters. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: While it's likely he will be limited once camp begins it appears Cook is on track to be ready Week 1. He's got the ability to flirt with RB1 status if he's not limited once the season begins. Latavius Murray will work in a backup role.
