2017 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Aug-22-2017 by Shawn Childs

We're calling him a gamble because of where you have to draft him. (2nd round) You're turning down a sure fire stud for Murray. He's uber productive when he's on the field, but he has a fantasy monster behind him in Derrick Henry. If you're the Titans and Murray is banged up, do you throw Murray out there when you have aspirations of a playoff berth, or do you let Murray sit because you have a more than capable repalcement who can carry the load.

The better back in Tennessee in 2016 was clearly Murray. He finished with 346 touches for 1664 combined yards with 53 catches and 12 TDs leading to him being a great value pick in Fantasy drafts. Over the first ten games of the season, DeMarco had seven games with over 100 combined yards and 10 TDs. The Titans played four of their last six games on the road plus two tough defenses at home (DEN and HOU), which led to Murray fading (79 yards per game with two TDs and 16 catches). He had over 18 touches in his first 14 games. On the year, Tennessee ran the ball 408 times for 1833 yards and 14 TDs from the running back position plus 65 catches for 501 yards and three TDs on 81 targets. There's a great RB opportunity in this offense, but the Titans have an elite option behind him waiting to steal his job. DeMarco is a special player, and he isn't going to go away if he's healthy. He just does too many things well plus Tennessee has strength on the offensive line. I'll throttle back his touches to 275 just to cover the upside of Henry leading to about 1,400 combined yards with 50+ catches and close to 10 TDs.
