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.

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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
