Titans | DeMarco Murray has solid MNF outing

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 21:01:18 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray churned out 40 yards on 12 carries and had a rushing touchdown in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, against the Indianapolis Colts. He also hauled in four receptions for 47 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was a nice showing from Murray for his owners, but his usage is still a concern, as teammate Derrick Henry actually had seven more carries and more than triple the rushing yards as well. However, the former rushing champion is just too talented to keep on the bench, and he still generally gets enough work to warrant being started regularly in just about all leagues.

Titans | DeMarco Murray runs for 58 yards

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 18:20:38 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray finished with 14 carries for 58 yards and four catches for 11 yards in a 16-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has now been held below 60 rushing yards in four of the five games this season, and he has scored just once. The good news is that he still saw a majority of the carries, and he should be in the RB2 conversation against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

Titans | DeMarco Murray held in check in Week 4

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 14:28:57 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray ran seven times for 31 yards Sunday, Oct. 1, in a 57-14 loss to the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Two things stand out here. First, it's never good when you have less rushing yards than your quarterback. Second, with QB Marcus Mariota hampered by a hamstring injury, he may need to miss time. If that's the case Murray could be bottled up.

Titans | Hamstring holds up for DeMarco Murray

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 19:03:54 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray finished with 14 carries for 115 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown run, in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was questionable coming into the game with a hamstring injury, but he ended up having his best performance of the year. Derrick Henry also saw 13 carries, but if Murray doesn't have any setbacks this week, the carries could swing more in his favor moving forward. Consider him a RB2 against the Houston Texans in Week 4.

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 11:46:05 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Murray probably will share snaps with Derrick Henry during the game and could see limited carries because of the injuries. Murray will be a risky option for owners because of the injury and the matchup.

Titans | DeMarco Murray should suit up

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 22:14:47 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is "more than likely" to play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, a source said Saturday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Murray suits up, there is a good chance he will see limited snaps, and the matchup with Seattle is far from ideal. If you have to start one of Tennessee's backs, Derrick Henry is the better play.

Titans | DeMarco Murray listed as questionable

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 14:47:14 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 22, and he is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was facing a tough matchup if he were at 100 percent, but it's especially difficult if he is a little banged up. Look for Derrick Henry to shoulder some of the lost against the Seahawks, and perhaps start if Murray is out or limited. The fantasy back of choice in Nashville this weekend appears to be Henry.

Titans | Derrick Henry to be busy Week 3

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 12:38:44 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is expected to get a "significant workload" in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, regardless of whether DeMarco Murray plays or not, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. Murray returned to practice as a limited participant Friday, Sept. 22, running routes and catching passes during individual drills. While Murray showed some instances of acceleration as a runner and receiver during the practice, it was far from what he would be expected to do in game action, according to Wolfe.

Fantasy Tip: The Titans are handling this situation correctly, as there is no reason to push Murray through a hamstring injury, although having a talent like Henry on the roster makes it an easier decision. Henry is quite the luxury to fall back on when the reigning AFC rushing champion is not 100 percent and should be plugged into lineups as a RB2 despite the tough matchup.

Titans | DeMarco Murray practices Friday

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 10:05:37 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) was able to practice Friday, Sept. 22, after not participating the previous two days. He will be listed as questionable on the Week 3 injury report, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Fantasy Tip: For the most part, Murray has not looked himself this season after leading the AFC in rushing last year. Owners who have some depth at running back should consider sitting Murray until he is able to produce something of note. That is unlikely to come this week against the Seattle Seahawks. At least for this week, Derrick Henry figures to lead the backfield in touches and figures to be the superior player.
