DeMarco Murray

Tennessee Titans

The Titans had some trouble running the ball last season, but hired a new offensive line coach and brought in Ben Jones from Houston to take over at center. This is nowhere near the line Murray ran behind in Dallas, but it is improved enough that it is laughable to see a player so low in ADP who ran for 1,800 yards just two seasons ago. Yes, the addition of Henry is intimidating, but if Murray runs like he can, fantasy owners will be in for another 300 touch season.

Murray rushed eight times for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Titans 27-14 preseason win over the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Murray was out-touched by Henry 12-to-8 but I would not worry about it too much Murray has been said to be the bell cow in Tennessee since he signed. As the year plays out we should keep an eye out to see how things play out but Murray enters the season as a mid RB1.

Well, Murray was not good last season, but when he was good, he was running straight forward between the tackles. Now that he's been traded to Tennessee, he should see much more between the tackle work, which should be beneficial. But the Titans grabbed running back Derrick Henry in the 2016 NFL Draft, and he is good enough to push Murray and siphon some carries from him

A RBBC with rookie RB Derrick Henry remains inevitable. It would not surprise me if Derrick Henry takes over as the #1 RB in Tennessee sometime this season. Avoid.

As the Super Bowl ended and the offseason began, the interim tag was removed from Mike Mularkey’s title as he was named head coach of the Titans. Many fans and followers were left underwhelmed by the decision, but some took a bit of entertainment out of the statement that Mularkey made when he said that […] The post DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry’s Role in “Exotic Smashm...

Ranked too high for many but Murray and Henery should both have top-25 numbers by the time the season is over.

He'll need to hold off impressive rookie Henry in order to keep this backfield from turning RBBC.

He can still bang heads and at least for now he looks like the answer to Tennessee's running problems

Titans want to run the ball. Offensive line should improve. He is a good pass catcher as well.
