2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Latavius Murray had a very fine season in 2019, putting up 637 yards on the ground and 235 yards through the air, to go with six total touchdowns. He was only slightly less effective than Kamara, enabling the Saints to remain effective on offense yet not overwork Kamara.

In Weeks 7 & 8 Murray got the start, and produced like a stud (245 all-purpose yards and 4 touchdowns). The fact that he showed he can produce as the starter in this system makes Murray an intriguing back to draft in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts. He is within an explosive offense and the back in front of him has dealt with injuries off and on during his career. On top of that, Murray showed himself to be very good around the goal line. In both 2018 & 2019, he received 3 carries inside the 5-yard-line; in both seasons he scored on two of those attempts.

Murray is not just a handcuff to Kamara, either. Because he will consistently get 8-12 touches even with Kamara on the field, he is a back who can be plugged into your fantasy lineup weekly as a flex option. And if Kamara were to get injured, Murray's upside is huge.

News From The Past 90 Days
Alvin Kamara away from team
Missed last three practices, reportedly due to contract
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 31, 5:35 pm

New Orleans
Saints' RB Alvin Kamara has had an unexcused absence from training camp the past three days and it is believe to be contract related, per sources. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: The timing of this news is far from ideal for fantasy owners, but it is understandable from Kamara's perspective. While he is still on his rookie deal and set to make just over $2 million in 2020, Christian McCaffrey and Derrick Henry got huge extensions earlier this offseason. The Saints are in win-now mode and undoubtedly want to keep Kamara around, so the two sides should reconcile soon. Fantasy owners should still view him as a top-five option but make sure they make every effort to handcuff him with Latavius Murray in drafts over the next 1 1/2 weeks.
