Murray was a late addition to the starting lineup Saturday against West Brom after Joshua King tweaked his hamstring in warmups.

Murray scored off the bench last week after coming on for King when he initially sustained his hamstring injury, and he's got a decent matchup against a West Brom side that hasn't been as good defensively under Tony Pulis.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Murray grabbed the winner off his lone shot on goal just two minutes after being introduced in the 80-th minute of the stunning 1-0 away victory over Chelsea on Saturday.

It was more of a case of being at the right place at the right time rather than a sensational play by the striker, a huge goal for the Cherries, nonetheless. That's his third goal of the season but first in almost two months. Despite this getaway, he doesn't have much fantasy value while playing off the bench.

Murray scored a goal on two shots (one on target) in Saturday's 5-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Murray unleashed a howler from the left side to cut the deficit to 2-1, but Bournemouth was mostly toothless in attack. That's now back-to-back games with goals for Murray after not scoring in league play prior to that.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Murray was incredibly active on Saturday, getting off six shots (four on goal) and drawing four fouls while scoring Bournemouth's lone goal in a 1-1 draw to Watford.

Murray did make a few mistakes though, as he missed a penalty and picked up a yellow card in the draw. The forward has been a substitute for the majority of the season and this performance may garner him more starts going forward. In any case, he'll have a tough time scoring in their next match against Manchester City in two weeks time.

Murray signed a three-year contract with AFC Bournemouth on Tuesday after transferring from Crystal Palace.

Murray had been starting for Palace, but Bournemouth have been trying to sign him all summer. With Conor Wickham and Patrick Bamford available to take on the striker duties, Murray will move to likely play alongside Callum Wilson, who has scored four goals in his first four Premier League matches.

Norwich City made a transfer bid for Murray, reports the Daily Mail.

Murray was already targeted by Bournemouth, but Crystal Palace rejected those offers. He started against Aston Villa on Saturday and was substituted at the half.

Murray is available off the bench Sunday against Arsenal.

Murray started the opener last weekend against Norwich, though he wasn't a terribly great performer, and he will now cede his starting spot to Connor Wickham, with Patrick Bamford also looking for playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Murray is starting Saturday at Norwich City.

Bournemouth have been after Murray for the past couple weeks, and despite the summer additions of Connor Wickham and Patrick Bamford, he'll continue to lead the line for a Palace team that is capable of putting up big scores.
