Latavius Murray, RB, New Orleans Saints
Murray had 14 carries for 64 yards and two touchdowns against the Detroit Lions in Week 4, while adding one catch for 19 yards. He has topped 50 rushing yards in each of the last two games, with at least 48 yards and 12 carries in three of four games thus far.
Operating behind Alvin Kamara leaves Murray in the background a lot. But he usually gets just enough work to be noticeable, and when Kamara has missed time Murray has become the workhorse back.

Murray can get on hot streaks, and as long as he’s getting double digit carries each week a touchdown is in play. His ownership rates stretch the boundaries of waiver wire consideration, but Murray is an injury away from being a weekly fantasy starter. He should be owned in nearly all 12-team leagues.
