Saints vs. Falcons
Latavius Murray - RB (NO)
Murray has actually received a higher share of touches than Alvin Kamara in the two games in which Taysom Hill has started. His role has increased in the last two games with the Saints going more run heavy and utilizing a true committee backfield with Brees out of the lineup. Murray should continue to see an increased role in the offense and has a chance to turn it into a high scoring output over the next two weeks against two favorable matchups.
Around the League
Keke Coutee - WR (HOU)
Will Fuller V has been suspended for six games for PED usage. This now creates an opportunity for Coutee to be the Texans #2 receiver for the next few weeks while Randall Cobb is on IR. Coutee has shown flashes previously when called upon and will now be the second option for Deshaun Watson and the Texans opposite Brandin Cooks. Coutee should see his fair share of volume for as long as Cobb remains out.
Devontae Booker - RB (LV)
Josh Jacobs suffered a knee injury in the Raiders game against Atlanta on Sunday. If he is unable to play next week against the Jets, Booker would be in line to be the starting RB for the Raiders against a soft Jets run defense. Even if Jacobs is able to play, he very well could be on a snap count as the Raider will not want to risk their best offensive player in a game that should be an easy win. So even if Jacobs is active, Booker could still be a solid starter next week.
