That Murray found 25 touches in a blowout against the 49ers is heartening to owners. A one week sample suggests they'll commit to getting him the ball.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Titans allowed the second fewest points to fantasy running backs last week, but they should not do as well against a stronger Dallas offensive line.
Vereen is the back to own in New England, for now. That can change in New England, but Vereen is the receiving back and sees enough carries and goal line work to warrant RB2 or high flex value.

A healthy Murray is a must-play Murray - FF = 85 rush, 35 rec
MIN shined vs run in W1, but STL offense can take share of credit - FF = 115 YFS
