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.
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.
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.
Tue, 27 Oct 2015 13:21:32 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 27.
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.
Sun, 25 Oct 2015 12:20:27 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (knee) will not return to Week 7's game against the Washington Redskins after injuring his knee early in the first half. He suffered the injury after making a 29-yard catch.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:53:17 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Friday, July 31.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy should be able to participate in training camp in the near future and could have a solid role in the passing game this season. Owners could consider Murphy in the later rounds of deeper leagues.
Fri, 26 Dec 2014 07:13:32 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy signed a three-year extension Friday, Dec. 26.
Mon, 15 Dec 2014 12:11:11 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (knee), WR Louis Murphy (ankle) and TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
Fri, 31 Oct 2014 20:00:08 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy, WR Marcus Thigpen and RB Bobby Rainey are options to return punts in the team's Week 9 game.
Sun, 05 Oct 2014 20:10:56 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy posted three receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy is getting more looks with Mike Evans sidelined by injury, and the former Florida Gator is taking advantage of the chance. Still, he is nothing more than a WR4 or flex play in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.
Sat, 04 Oct 2014 05:27:31 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy will start in Week 5 in place of injured WR Mike Evans (groin).
Fantasy Tip: Murphy is coming off a terrific Week 4 performance and appears to have a good chemistry with Mike Glennon. He costs $3,100 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to look to use a more reliable receiver.
Mon, 29 Sep 2014 09:49:40 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy had six catches for 99 yards receiving in the team's Week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Murphy entered the lineup with WR Mike Evans (groin) dealing with a groin injury in the third quarter. In the preseason, Murphy had most of his repetitions with QB Mike Glennon, who is now starting.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy has familiarity with Glennon, and now he'll see plenty of playing time with Evans out two to three weeks. Consider Murphy a deep sleeper, but he'll be cheap at FantasyScore moving forward.
Mon, 29 Sep 2014 08:50:40 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) will reportedly miss two or three weeks with a strained groin.
Fantasy Tip: Louis Murphy will likely move into the starting lineup, which makes him a fringe flex option on FantasyScore. Vincent Jackson will probably receive more attention from defenses now, which could hurt his stock slightly. TE Brandon Myers could play a larger role in the offense and is a fringe option at the position. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who had 3 catches for 44 yards in Week 4, is also a benefactor and could move into the fringe/bargain bin options at tight end.
Wed, 24 Sep 2014 15:09:44 -0700
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers re-signed WR Louis Murphy to their active roster Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Mon, 22 Sep 2014 14:27:10 -0700

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 13:34:24 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Mike Jenkins (hamstring) fully practiced Friday, Sept. 5, and is probable for Week 1.

DE William Gholston (shoulder), FS Bradley McDougald (knee), CB Rashaan Melvin (ankle) and WR Louis Murphy (back) all did not participate in practice and have been ruled out for Week 1.
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 15:23:16 -0700

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 21:37:23 -0700

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 13:55:00 -0700

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 19:06:52 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson and WR Mike Evans are expected to open the year as the starters, and WR Robert Herron, WR Chris Owusu and WR Louis Murphy are the frontrunners for the remaining spots, according to Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com. Smith also tabbed WR David Gettis as a player that could surprise and make the 53-man roster.
Sat, 28 Jun 2014 13:25:59 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy performed at a high level during organized team activities and minicamp practices. He spent a lot of time with the first-team offense with WRs Vincent Jackson (hamstring) and WR Mike Evans (hamstring) missing time with injuries.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy is battling for the slot role, but his fantasy value is pretty limited right now.
Fri, 20 Jun 2014 13:22:34 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WRs Chris Owusu and Louis Murphy have looked good in the team's offseason workouts as they battle for the No. 3 wide receiver job. The team also has high hopes for WR Robert Herron.
Fantasy Tip: Neither Owusu or Murphy will have much, if any, fantasy value heading into the season unless Vincent Jackson or Mike Evans are injured.

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 10:24:04 -0700
New York Giants CB Corey Webster (knee, groin); WRs Victor Cruz (heel), Ramses Barden (knee) and Louis Murphy (leg); OLs David Baas (knee) and David Diehl (thumb), FB Henry Hynoski (knee), and DL Damontre Moore (shoulder) all have been ruled out of the team's third preseason game.
Wed, 21 Aug 2013 21:11:41 -0700
With New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz (heel), Ramses Barden (knee) and Louis Murphy (undisclosed) sidelined due to injuries, WR Jerrel Jernigan is getting plenty of reps in practice. He might be used as the slot receiver while Cruz recovers from his heel injury.
Wed, 21 Aug 2013 21:11:11 -0700
New York Giants WRs Ramses Barden (knee) and Louis Murphy (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 21.
Sun, 11 Aug 2013 18:21:01 -0700
New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Rueben Randle, Louis Murphy and Jerrel Jernigan are expected to be the team's top five wideouts. After that, there is a battle between Ramses Barden, Keith Carlos, Kevin X. Hardy and Julian Talley for the sixth receiver job, if the team elects to keep that many. WR Kris Adams (leg) was in the mix for the No. 6 job, but he fractured a leg in the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Aug. 10.
Wed, 24 Jul 2013 09:53:56 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle turned heads during the offseason program, and he is ready for a bigger role in the offense behind WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. However, Randle is not locked into the third receiver job yet, as he needs to hold off WRs Ramses Barden, Jerrel Jernigan and Louis Murphy, among others.
Fantasy Tip: Randle has the most upside of any of the competitors for the No. 3 job, and with a good season he could make the injury-prone Nicks expendable after this season. For fantasy purposes, Randle is a nice later round addition on draft day. He is potentially just more Nicks injury or setback away from starting.
Mon, 08 Jul 2013 11:11:38 -0700
New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Louis Murphy are expected to compete for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp.
Wed, 29 May 2013 09:53:54 -0700
New York Giants WR Louis Murphy has stood out in OTAs so far. He was given plenty of deep routes in a recent workout. Head coach Tom Coughlin said he'll have a better impression of Rueben Randle after several more practice days.
Fantasy Tip: Targets among secondary NYG WRs could often produce solid fill-in weeks to account for byes or injuries, and Murphy looks primed to be the main option for a dice roll among the group. However, shifting gameplans will most likely make speculating on someone beneath Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Myers a frustrating weekly gambit.
Thu, 23 May 2013 10:17:33 -0700
The New York Giants re-signed WR Ramses Barden to an undisclosed deal Thursday, May 23.
Fantasy Tip: This signing shouldn't have much to do with the fact that both Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are absent from organized team activities this week. Barden will have to compete for the No. 4 receiver role with Louis Murphy and Jerrel Jernigan, though, so his chances to make significant contributions in the passing game may rely on injuries. For now, consider him a possible waiver wire target later in the year.
Thu, 23 May 2013 06:53:16 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle is listed as the No. 3 receiver on the depth chart over WR Louis Murphy.
Wed, 22 May 2013 19:09:54 -0700
New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks were missing at organized team activities Wednesday, May 22, over contract disputes, so QB Eli Manning was working with WRs Jerrel Jernigan, Louis Murphy and Rueben Randle during the session.
