Eagles | DeMarco Murray not sure of workload

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 19:02:29 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he doesn't know what the running back rotation will be this year, but he said he doesn't expect to "alternate series" with RB Ryan Mathews.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Mathews to earn some carries, but the Eagles didn't sign Murray to make him just another back in a committee. Consider Murray a low-end RB1.

Eagles | Concern over DeMarco Murray's workload

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:05:34 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray's 2014 workload is cause for concern, according to head coach Chip Kelly Tuesday, Aug. 18. "Our plan all along was to get another running back with him. I wanted to have two running backs, and that's why we got Ryan [Mathews]. I don't think you can have a guy carry it 370 to 400 times per season and be successful. We're going to run it a lot -- we always do -- but we'll have more than one guy doing it," Kelly said.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly expressed both the concerns fantasy owners have been fretting over all offseason. Murray's heath concerns and his timeshare with Mathews both factor into his diminished upside and overall fantasy value. Murray should be viewed as a low-end RB1 with plenty of risk.

Eagles | Coach limiting DeMarco Murray

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 12:15:31 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray has been limited during training camp because head coach Chip Kelly has decided to take things slow with Murray. Kelly indicated the high number of touches Murray received last season was a factor in limiting him.

Fantasy Tip: Murray did around 500 touches last season, so the coaching staff are resting him at times during training camp. Murray should be the team's No. 1 running back but probably will see drop in touches under Kelly. Murray is still an early-round option and should be a weekly starting option.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray being eased in?

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 12:51:32 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray hardly practiced Sunday, July 30, but it wasn't because he's not healthy. Murray said he is fine and is trying to do as much as he can for his new team.

Fantasy Tip: It would make sense for head coach Chip Kelly and the Eagles to bring Murray along slowly and give him fewer reps, considering how much he was used with the Dallas Cowboys last season. Murray will be splitting time with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles this year, but he's still the Eagles' starting running back and should be drafted as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2.
