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.

Aleksandar Kolarov has been an excellent fantasy option this season, and a home match against Watford on Saturday puts him atop the weekly defender rankings.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Murray scored once and grabbed a pair of assists in Saturday's 4-1 win over Sunderland.

Murray opened the scoring just after half time with a far-post header from Yannick Bolasie's deflected cross. The striker then turned provider with a flicked header for Bolasie's first and a pass across the box for the DR Congo international to complete his hat trick. Murray now has six goals for Palace and has linked up incredibly well with the potent attacking threat of Bolasie, Jason Puncheon and Wilfried Zaha from the Palace midfield.

Murray scored from the spot and grabbed an assist in Saturday's 2-1 win against Stoke City.

Murray slammed home the 41st minute penalty after Yannick Bolasie was fouled by Stoke 'keeper Asmir Begovic before flicking on for Wilfried Zaha's first half stoppage time winner. Murray, who only returned from a loan spell at Reading in January, has four goals this season and fantasy managers should take note that he is on penalty duty whilst Mile Jedinak is not in the side.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Murray scored twice and was sent off in Saturday's 3-1 win against West Ham.

Murray opened the scoring in the first half with a header from Jason Puncheon's corner that deflected in off Aaron Cresswell. The striker made it two in the second half when he headed in Puncheon's free kick before he was sent off for a second booking shortly afterwards. Murray has three goals this season yet will find himself back on the bench in the first game after his suspension has expired against QPR on Mar. 14.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Murray scored in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Murray bundled the ball home in injury time following a scramble and came agonisingly close to earning a point after he turned Yannick Bolasie's cross against the post. The striker only got his chance because of an injury to Marouane Chamakh and Yaya Sanogo's ineligibility and his appearances will continue to be sporadic if at all.
