Yup, in my 14-teamer he's my flex. I don't know why everyone is suddenly down on him. I think the paralysis by analysis hit these forums about a month ago

I'm not sure that many are down on him.  Just concerned about the weird unexplained tag.

Kamara is not playing tomorrow.     

So now NON-injury prone players are injury prone?    LOL, NO ONE IS SAFE

LaDainian Tomlinson* Eddie George Curtis Martin* Rudi Johnson Tiki Barber Ray Rice Matt Forte Corey Dillon Shaun Alexander Chris Johnson Marshawn Lynch Frank Gore Charlie Garne

This just in from CBS, looks like he's good to go.

Murray (undisclosed) wasn't listed on the Saints' initial Week 1 injury report, Luke Johnson of USA Today reports.

Murray missed practice and preseason Week 3 for an unknown reason, but it turned out to be a non-story in the end. Set to serve as the second piece in a backfield that employs Alvin Kamara, Murray should have a healthy dose of snaps on a weekly basis, like Mark Ingram received both of the past two seasons.

What do we make out of this?

6-43-1 + 2-4-0

He seems to be more the premium handcuff than a stand alone value.

I think he is flex worthy already and an obvious RB2 if Kamarra goes down...hope he doesn't off. Thought he looked really good tonight.

Re watching the MNF game and wow, the difference between the 2 backs is stark.  Kamara looks shot out of cannon and Murray looks shot in the leg.  I know it's only 1 game but would like to see him catch the ball and used at the goal line in the future.  And can we please stop trying to make Taysum Hill a thing coach Payton??

Most backs, even really good ones, are gonna look slow as hell next to Kamara.

Thats just because Kamara isnt an actual mortal human being and Murray is.

I'm actually gonna try to pluck him for cheap.   I think they'll pound the rock now. 

I disagree with this logic. Shifting the pass to run ratio is not going to make latavius any more valuable. The teams overall scoring projections are severely lowered without Brees. That translates to less carries overall and less red zone opportunities if the team can't move the ball as well. I think latavius will have decent games here and there in positive game script scenarios but good luck predicting those. In my mind he's a handcuff until Brees comes back. Even then I'm not sure he's much more than that. He wasn't getting a ton of touches even with Brees. I'm out and dropping.

I dunno that i'd even call my thought logical, its more of a guess.   Thinking more critically on it, I checked their schedule the next few weeks to see if there's a matchup or two that looked juicy for a run game.    There really isn't one, so i'm probably already backtracking.

gotcha i jus meant the "they'll run more now" thing. I saw Matthew Berry peddling this line of thinking on twitter and wanted to offer my perspective
