Let's get it out of the way: Derrick Henry is breathing down his neck and ready to claim the job for himself at the sign of first distress, but let's get real, this is DeMarco Murray we are talking about. Yes, he is older and has taken a beating with all of the carries, but he isn't losing the job unless an injury pops up. With Murray getting loads of touches behind a terrific offensive line, he is primed to put together another RB1 season.

DeMarco Murray dealing with hand injury

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Mularkey told the media running back DeMarco Murray (hand) underwent a procedure to repair a hand injury Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Mularkey added that Murray will wear a cast as a result of the surgery and will be sidelined for mandatory minicamp. However, the 29-year-old running back is expected to be fully recovered for the start of training camp in late July. Murray is slated to open the 2017 season as the Titans' starting RB but could lose touches to Derrick Henry, more so than he had in 2016. Still, the former is the top rusher to target from the Titans for the upcoming fantasy football campaign despite the presumed workload regression.
