Latavius Murray released by New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints have released running back Latavius Murray (per Adam Schefter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a bit of a surprise given that Murray is coming off his best season, averaging 4.5 yards per carry on 146 rush attempts. With Murray now off the roster, Tony Jones Jr. becomes the Saints’ RB2 behind Alvin Kamara and he could have fantasy value in 2021 given how the Saints like to operate their backfield. Fantasy managers, particularly in deep dynasty leagues, should add Jones.
