2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


The move to the Eagles for DeMarco in 2015 was a complete mess. He struggled to find his rhythm over the first three games (29/47/1 with 11 catches for 76 yards and a TD) as Philly failed to commit to him while rotating multiple backs. He had a solid run over six games when Murray gained 114.5 yards per game while averaging 23.3 touches per game. He fell out of favor with the coaching staff over the last six games of the season leading to him having no value in any Fantasy format (57 touches for 214 yards and two TDs). DeMarco is a solid NFL RB with value in the passing game. In his NFL career, he has 36 TDs in 68 career games (55 starts) while posting one elite season (392/1845/13 with 57 catches for 416 yards). Even if he wins the starting job over the summer, I expect Murray to finish with less overall touches than Henry with minimal value at the goal line. He has a chance at 200 touches as long as the overall Titans' rushing attack makes a step forward. In 2015, Tennessee completed 72 passes for 615 yards and three TDs on 100 targets to the RB position so DeMarco should have an excellent chance at 50+ catches. He has an outside chance at 1000 combined yards with 50+ catches and a handful of TDs or about 180 Fantasy point in PPR league, which makes him RB2 in 12 team formats.

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
7.03 Matt Brandon - This is a tremendous value. The Titans paid him money to be their workhorse and they also like to throw to their running backs. Even if Derrick Henry eats into his carries, I believe the bulk of Murray?s points will come in the passing game.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
5.12 Fantasy Guru - Tom Brolley - I can’t say I’m in love with Murray, but he presented too much value this late in the draft. The Titans want to run it a ton, he’s a capable three-down back, and the options behind him in this backfield aren’t great.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
6.05 High-Stakes Expert - Kimra Schleicher - With limited WR weapons in TN, I hope the Titans to lean on Murray quite a bit in 2016. He won't post the numbers he did in Dallas, but he will see plenty of carries.
