Saints' Latavius Murray totals 124 yards and 2 touchdowns in Week 12 win over Broncos

New Orleans Saints running back Latavius Murray recorded 19 carries for 124 rushing yards and 2 rushing touchdowns with 1 reception on 1 target for 2 receiving yards in a 31-3 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 12.

What It Means:

Murray was heavily involved in this one as the Saints' seemingly wanted to give Kamara a little rest in a game that was never in question. With the Broncos playing without a real quarterback, the Saints controlled this game from the second quarter onwards, with Murray racking up both of his touchdowns late in the game. Taysom Hills' involvement in the offense has limited the passing game involvement of all of the Saints' running backs and taken away from their goal line opportunities. Next up for Murray and the Saints is a clash with the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13.

Murray scored 25.1 FanDuel points in Week 12, the third-most of all running backs on Sunday's main slate and 18.1 more than numberFire's projection (7.0). Our models project Murray for 8.2 FanDuel points in Week 13.
