As we inch toward the new season, the ever-changing NFL landscape has player fantasy values constantly on the move. Whether you’re used to the dynasty platform or are still learning the rules, let’s dive into the latest dynasty value of Latavius Murray.
Latavius Murray’s Dynasty Outlook and Value
Somehow, we live in a world where we’re talking about the dynasty value of a 33-year-old Murray. The answer to this question should be zero.
The list of running backs age 33 or older who have even been on dynasty rosters is small. In recent memory, it’s basically Frank Gore and Adrian Peterson.

With that said, Murray still looked like he had some juice during his brief appearance with the Saints last season. That prompted the Broncos to poach him off their practice squad after they lost Javonte Williams, Mike Boone, and had enough of Melvin Gordon III’s atrocious play.
Murray spent the final seven weeks of the 2022 season as Denver’s RB1. Somehow, Murray finished the season as the overall RB25, averaging 11.9 fantasy points per game. I guess that necessitates us taking him seriously.
Latavius Murray’s Fantasy Ranking
Murray has seemingly done enough to earn a job this season. But it’s important to remember that both with the Saints and Broncos, his usage was a product of necessity. No team is going to choose to open the season with Murray as its RB1.
At best, Murray will earn an RB2 role and be the other half of a committee. The more likely outcome is a team signs him as its RB3 for roster depth.
There’s no real fantasy value in a guy like Murray. Unsurprisingly, we have him ranked at RB79, No. 254 overall in our latest dynasty Superflex rankings.
If you have him on your roster, wait and see where he signs. That will determine whether he’s worth hanging onto. But I would be surprised if Murray had a season anywhere near what he did in 2022. There’s no reason to draft him in dynasty startup drafts.
