It is easier to keep up with the Vikings running backs who were not injured in Week 4, than it is to keep up with who left the game. Dalvin Cook suffered a non-contact knee injury. While the Vikings have not released details of the injury, it does not look good.
Jerick McKinnon also left the game with an injury leaving Latavius Murray as the lone Vikings running back. What is Murray’s value if Cook is forced to miss time? If Murray takes over as Vikings running back, fantasy owners can expect his fantasy value to be around an RB3/flex player.
While I am not super bullish on his fantasy value, he is still a must-add waiver wire addition based on sheer opportunity. You should go after him in all leagues, but I would not plan on putting him in your lineup until he proves deserving. Murray was fantasy relevant during his time with the Raiders.
Oakland also had one of the best offensive lines in the league. The Raiders possessed a more dynamic offense than the Vikings. You need to add Murray to your roster, but at this time he is nothing more than a stash candidate.
