Murray continues to exceed expectations so far in 2016. The only running back with more fantasy points is David Johnson. Murray has 41 carries and 17 targets through three games. He remains a low-end RB1 in a matchup against the Texans. McCoy workload continues to place him on the RB1 radar. He is currently a top-10 fantasy running back. McCoy has 59 touches on the season.

 Last week, McCoy took it to the Arizona defense, and I expect similar play against the Patriots, who are also above average against the run this season. The Bills could be without Sammy Watkins again, so I expect a lot of Shady

Murray has been a pleasant surprise in fantasy and goes up against a Houston D that is still trying to recover from a 27-0 shutout in New England. McCoy was great in a tough matchup last week and I expect him to play well this week. He is a solid RB2.
