DeMarco Murray to the Tennessee Titans

Mar 8, 2016

DeMarco Murray Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles fans will likely be more excited about DeMarco Murray’s exit than Tennessee Titans fans are of his arrival. Before last season’s disaster Murray was coming off a monster 2,261 total yard, 12 touchdown season. While a return to that level of greatness is unlikely, Murray should prove to be a valuable fantasy option in his new surroundings as long as Murray shows up in mind and body.
Murray has averaged 51.3 receptions over the past three seasons. He was never quite the right fit in Chip Kelly’s offense. He should be more suite for Mike Mularkey “exotic smashmouth” football.
The Tennessee Titans were led by Antonio Andrews with 520 yards on 143 carries (3.6 ypc). He caught 21 passes for 174 yards. At 5’10, 225 pounds Andrews is a plodding running back. Murray, at 6’0″, 217 pounds is a more dynamic back. He and Mariota have the skill set to give Mularkey what he’s looking for.
Murray’s disappointing 2015 campaign should find him in RB2 territory. He has RB1 potential, particularly in PPR leagues.
