Fantasy Analysis
Week 2 Projections
Making his Saints debut, Murray compiled a 6-43-1 rushing line and a modest 2-4-0 receiving line against the Houston Texans in Monday night action. The rushing touchdown came on a 30-yard scamper. There's little question that Murray is touchdown dependent, but he still deserves flex consideration versus a Los Angeles Rams defense that ceded the eighth-most rushing yards and the most fantasy points to the running back position in Week 1.
Rushing: 43 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 10 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
His new team already has a role for his skill-set in their play book. The problem is, Mark Ingram's workload decreased from 14 carries per game in 2017 to 11 in 2018. The decrease was primarily due to an increase in Alvin Kamara's role and it's possible even more is etched out for Kamara this season. Set your expectations at below 10 carries per game in a high scoring offense, but keep in mind there is potential for more. 12-15 touches in this offense are more valuable than 15 touches in lesser ones.

Rushing: 479 Yards, 6 TD.
Receiving: 22 Receptions, 143 Yards, 0 TD.
