Buccaneers | Louis Murphy goes to PUP list

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:35:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy will more than likely be an afterthought in the Bucs' passing game behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. He shouldn't be totally overlooked, but don't draft him as more than just a deep flier in standard leagues.

Buccaneers | Louis Murphy not charged

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 12:42:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy woke up Saturday, July 2, in a museum after attending a friend's wedding there the night before. Murphy said he had been drinking, went to the museum's courtyard and fell asleep on the stairs. The receiver broke the glass on one of the doors after being locked out and called a friend. Murphy and the museum manager agreed to work out the $1,000 in damages. Murphy was not charged with a crime.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear at this point how big of a role Murphy will have this season, but the best-case scenario will be as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. Murphy should only be drafted as a deep flier, but not drafting him at all is fine, too.

Buccaneers | Louis Murphy to be ready for camp

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:09:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy is expected to battle for the slot-receiver role in camp, but the early favorite is Kenny Bell. Murphy is 29 and hasn't done much in his career, so there's very little upside for him in fantasy. Bell could be an intriguing WR5 because of his speed if he wins the job.

Buccaneers | Torn ACL likely for Louis Murphy

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 12:13:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (knee) is expected to miss the rest of the season with what the Buccaneers believe is a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy was Tampa Bay's No. 3 receiver and didn't see much action behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson anyway. Donteea Dye scored in Week 7, but he has a short ceiling for the remainder of the season. Evans and Jackson are still the only Tampa Bay receivers worth owning.

Buccaneers | Louis Murphy suffers injury

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 09:46:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (knee) suffered a knee injury during the team's Week 7 game and has been ruled out for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for an update on his status in the next day or two to see how long he will be sidelined. Murphy has had some productive games this season but is not a great fantasy option.

Buccaneers | Louis Murphy could receive start

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 09:23:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy could start against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1 if WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is not able to play.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) would probably see more targets than usual if he starts the game but would probably be behind Vincent Jackson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins in terms of passing options. Owners on FantasyScore likely will be able to find better options for their starting lineup.

Buccaneers | Louis Murphy activated

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 12:10:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (ankle) was activated Tuesday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy is currently listed as Tampa Bay's third wide receiver behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. Murphy didnít give the Buccaneers a whole lot in 11 games last year. He's a WR5 at best.

Buccaneers | Louis Murphy remains out

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 08:18:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (ankle) is not participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 9, and has been sidelined for the entire camp so far because of an ankle injury. There is no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy likely will miss at least one preseason game because of the injury, so owners should monitor his progress. He probably will be the No. 3 receiver in what could be a solid passing game. Murphy could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he is healthy.
