Titans | DeMarco Murray totals 47 yards

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 20:14:04 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray ran 11 times for 34 yards in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals while adding two receptions for 13 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Murray didn't do much for the second consecutive game, but no one else accomplished much on offense either. He had 13 total touches to eight for Derrick Henry and remains the fantasy back who will have more touches in Tennessee, although he has been more of a RB3 or flex fantasy play lately.

Titans | DeMarco Murray runs for 66 yards

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 18:19:02 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray rushed 11 times for 66 yards in the Week 13 game against the Houston Texans and he added two grabs for 13 yards on his two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Murray averaged a respectable 6.0 yards per game, and while he was outgained by Derrick Henry, it really was just one big 75-yard scoring run late in the fourth quarter to tip the scales in Henry's favor. Murray was far more consistent and remains a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in most formats.

Titans | DeMarco Murray on target for Sunday

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 14:05:26 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (illness) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 1, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 13 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was a bit under the weather, but still able to participate. If he is limited in any way on Sunday it would be the benefit of his RB committee partner Derrick Henry and his fantasy owners.

Titans | Tennessee to keep RB committee

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 18:24:43 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray and RB Derrick Henry will continue to split carries as they have all season, head coach Mike Mularkey said Thursday, Nov. 30. "I think the way it has worked out, it has worked just fine," Mularkey said. "I think we have two starters."

Fantasy Tip: If Mularkey holds true to his word, Murray will continue to be a low-end RB2 against the Houston Texans in Week 13, and Henry will be a risky flex play.

Titans | DeMarco Murray misses practice

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 12:11:05 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 30, because of an illness.

Fantasy Tip: Murray likely will be able to play in Week 13 if he can recover from the illness over the next few days. He has been limited to 19 rushing yards over the last two games but does have four total touchdowns in the last three games. He still has value because of his role in the passing game and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

Titans | DeMarco Murray bottled up in win

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 15:17:45 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray rushed 12 times for nine yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts while adding three catches for 33 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: That's two awful performances in a row, as he has 20 carries for just 19 rushing yards across the past two games. The touchdown was nice, but he has devolved into a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play heading into Week 13 against the Texans. Derrick Henry performed well and could eat into his role.

Titans | DeMarco Murray likely to remain starter

Sat, 25 Nov 2017 08:32:06 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray is expected to remain the starter over Derrick Henry for the remainder of the season, although offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie admitted there is "a bit of a hot hand approach with the backs" and "not a specific play count for each."

Fantasy Tip: The Titans' offense as a whole has been a disappointment, the offensive line hasn't been nearly as good as it was last year and Murray has been slowed by injuries, but the 29-year-old has seemingly fallen off precipitously from what was a banner year in 2016. Tennessee reportedly values Murray's pass blocking and catching enough to keep things the way they currently are. Murray is a volume-based, low-end RB2 at best most weeks, while Henry is a high-upside, low-floor flex.

Titans | DeMarco Murray shut down by Steel Curtain

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 22:22:05 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray gained 10 yards on eight carries (1.3 YPC) in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Murray added 37 yards in the passing game on five receptions.

Fantasy Tip: It was another night to forget for Murray in a season that has become increasingly full of them. After leading the AFC in rushing last year, Murray has topped 60 rushing yards in game just once in 2017, and that was all the way back in Week 3. He's done a little more work as a receiver recently -- and is coming off a three-touchdown game -- but his status as a No. 2 fantasy back should be viewed as tenuous.

Titans | DeMarco Murray has rough matchup

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 08:28:08 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray will face the best defense against the running back position in fantasy over the last five weeks in the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of last week's three touchdowns, Murray has struggled. He's averaging just 3.01 yards per carry over the last four games. During that stretch, the Steelers are yielding 9.8 fantasy points per game to running backs - as a whole. Murray is still an RB2 in fantasy, but if you're loaded at the position, it's not out of the question to consider someone else.
