DeMarco Murray

After sitting out the Eagles' preseason opener last week, DeMarco Murray carried five times for 17 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 40-17 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Murray capped the team's second drive with a two-yard score. Coach Chip Kelly dialed up plenty of run plays while rotating Murray with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles throughout the first quarter, sometimes even with two of the backs on the field at the same time. Murray took the bulk of the snaps on the opening series, which ended with a 14-yard touchdown run by Mathews. Thanks to Philly's up-tempo offense (which went no-huddle on the first drive), there will be plenty of snaps to go around for this three-headed monster.

He paced the league in carries and he's changed teams, which could have him carrying two big red flags going into 2015. That being said, he also could be a beast in Chip Kelly's system.

Murray is going to be fed the ball a ton in Philly but will lose passing downs to Mathews and Darren Sproles. He is going to get a ton of carries, but don't expect a repeat of 2015. Murray has the chance to be top 15 this year, but Mathews loses the majority of his value and will struggle to be in the top 40.

There is of course concern that the gifted runner Ryan Matthews will take away from last season's rushing champion Murray, but that is the good thing about the Eagles; they run the ball often and would like to run the ball even more. Last season, Philadelphia's running backs ran the ball the fifth most in the league while also throwing it the fifth most. The Eagles also ran the ball 21 times inside the opponent's five-yard line, which tied them at sixth most in the league. Murray is the starter in Philly, while Mathews is the backup and that was evident when he was getting reps in kick returns during OTAs. We don't need to worry about Mathews usurping Murray's lead-back role, but we can benefit if Mathews causes others to skip Murray as an early pick.

A decline from his 393 attempts a given as he is expected to share with Mathews.

Leaves the best O-line in the NFL, but Philly has a solid line, as well, and the Eagles have been among the most run-heavy teams in the league under HC Chip Kelly

Murray lead the league in rushing attempts with 392, but guess which team had the 2nd leading rusher? It was the team he was traded to in the Philadelphia Eagles as LeSean McCoy had 312 rushing attempts. It will be hard for Murray to repeat on his incredible season last year to where he lead the league in rushing yards (1,845), rushing yards per game (115.3), first downs (85), and tied for first with Marshawn Lynch for rushing TDs (13). The Chip Kelly offensive juggernaut will keep Murray busy this season, so expect no significant drop off in fantasy points this season. His fantasy playoff schedule includes a neutral matchup versus Buffalo in week 14, a tough matchup versus Arizona in week 15, and a tough matchup versus Washington in week 16. My concern with Murray is the talent behind him in Philadelphia. You have Ryan Matthews and Darrin Sproles that will vulture Murray's carries. Look for Murray to have reduced carries from 449 to my projected 275 touches this season. His fantasy playoff schedule includes a neutral matchup versus Buffalo in week 14, a tough matchup versus Arizona in week 15, and a tough matchup versus Washington in week 16. DeMarco Murray has the toughest postseason schedule among running backs. He faces BUF ARI WAS = FPA 14.69

Murray was the league leader last year with 1,845 yards rushing and 13 rushing touchdowns, but the number that worries me is 392 carries. He also will not be running behind the Dallas offensive line in 2015. I view him as a very risky RB2 that I would avoid in the early rounds. He also projects to be in a RBBC with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles.

Presence of Mathews is a boon for a back who was overworked last year, will keep him fresh; should still push for 350+ touches

The Eagles are doubling down their efforts to replace LeSean McCoy by adding Murray and Ryan Mathews. Obviously Murray is the one to own but this situation is not fantasy friendly. At least until we know how the offense will operate. I'm downgrading Murray, Mathews and Sproles.

DeMarco Murray, PHI Murray is still being selected in the second round of most drafts, sometimes he even goes in the first. Nonetheless, he has very little going in his favor this season. I would not be shocked if he ends up not even being a RB2 in 2015. Personally,

A pair of projected top 10 running backs will have their results tied together this season whether they like it or not. LeSean McCoy and Demarco Murray will be measured against each other in 2015 for numerous reasons. The measurement will happen in Philadelphia for sure, but also in any

While Ricky Williams was a high pick (no pun intended) coming off a one-year suspension in his prime, Adrian Peterson is the most extreme case, as plenty argue he should be the No. 1 pick in 2015. He’s obviously our generation’s best talent at running back, and the argument is he should be fresh after sitting out essentially a full season that had nothing to do with an injury. Peterson...

I think DeMarco Murray took a long nap after the season.  436 carries and 61 catches (including postseason) takes a huge toll on the body.  That’s an average of 27.6 touches per game, and that’s not including all of his blocking assignments and routes run without a catch.  To put it in perspective, Murray totaled...

DeMarco Murray is coming off the best season of his career in which he dominated fantasy football with only one other running back even coming close to his total points. In standard scoring, you could knock an entire 5 points a game off DeMarco’s season total (80 points total) and he would still be the RB6 last... Read More
