2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Murray has over 20 touches in his last two games leading to 179 combined yards, a TD and five catches. He has two 100-yard rushing games and five TDs. In Week 5 he had 57 combined yards on 16 touches vs. the Broncos. Denver ranks 19th in the league in RB Fantasy defense, with three teams scoring over 30 Fantasy points. They allow only 3.5 YPC with 13 TDs to RBs (five via the pass). Talented player with some big play ability, but this isn't an ideal matchup. Murray earns about 19.2 touches per game.
Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Murray struggled to find running room for the third straight game in Week 12. He finished with 59 yards on 22 rushes. Over his last three games he has had 135 rushing yards on 37 carries (3.6 YPC). Murray has two 100-yard receiving games with four TDs (one in his last five games). Last year he broke a 90-yard run vs. the Chiefs in Week 12 to deliver 112 yards and two TDs on only four touches. Kansas City ranks 3rd in the NFL in RB Fantasy defense, with seven teams scoring fewer than 20 Fantasy points. His price point is fading, but this looks like a tough matchup. On the positive side, the Chiefs may be without one of their best linebackers (Justin Huston).
Update (11/25): Murray has been a solid option this season. To this point he's been a borderline RB1 in 12-team leagues. He's well on his way to his first 1,000-yard season. Heading into Week 12 he has 706 yards and four touchdowns on the ground, as well as 26 receptions for 133 yards. However, the schedule is about to get really tough for Murray. His best matchup left is against the Denver Broncos and that's never a good sign. Still, he can be utilized as an RB2 from here on out despite recent struggles.

|4.09||Scout Fantasy - @CoolCutter21 - I'm very high on Murray this year so I wasn't risking him getting snatched up before I picked again. (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 9:15:27 p.m. ET 2015)|
