Demarco Murray and the Philadelphia Eagles' relationship could be coming to an end. The two sides appear to be at a "stare-down" on the running back's future with the organization according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. (Source: Ian Rapoport via Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: After a tumultuous 2015 season, it appears that the Philadelphia Eagles and Demarco Murray have finally reached their breaking point. Murray is not happy with his role in Philadelphia, the 2014 NFL rushing leader barley amassed 702 yards rushing in 2015 and had been benched for the likes of Ryan Matthews and Darren Sproles. If Murray was to part ways from Philadelphia, the best possible scenario would be via the franchise releasing the 2015 fantasy disappointment and for him to pursue greener pastures. During the season, the Dallas Cowboys were rumored to be interested in bringing back Murray although the reports were not confirmed.

Fantasy Impact: Even though Chip Kelly is gone, his presence, in the form of discontentment, still lingers. Even with a terrible season under the books, Murray is only 27 years old and has shown he can play. For fantasy purposes, his value in Philadelphia in 2016 would be lukewarm, but the more we hear about this story in the off-season, the less likely Murray will be wearing midnight green. For keeper and dynasty league players, Murray's value can't possibly get any worse, so the whole situation sparks the questions of who might be interested and where he might be best used.
