|Joseph Randle eyeing a starting RB role in Dallas -- Wed May 27 6:25 pm --|
Could Randle be the Demarco Murray successor?
|With DeMarco Murray now in Philly, the only thing that stands in the way of Joseph Randle and a starting job is free agent addition Darren McFadden. Early signs point to Randle having an edge on the job. After watching Murray put up 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns last season, Randle stated that he felt like "there was a lot of meat left on the bone". (Cowboys Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Rushing behind the best offensive line unit in the NFL, Murray owners cashed in fantasy gold in 2014. Randle is licking his chops looking at the plentiful workload. However, even if he wins the starting gig he would merely be the leader of the dreaded RBBC. Regardless, whoever starts behind that offensive line gets a major fantasy boost and is worthy of an RB2 status.
|DeMarco Murray headed to Philadelphia -- Thu Mar 12 1:00 pm --|
"It was never about the money in any situation" Murray said
|DeMarco Murray, the NFL's leading rusher in 2014 for the Dallas Cowboys, is jumping ship and joining the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles.
"It was never about the money in any situation," Murray texted ESPN.com's Todd Archer. "If it was the money, I could've taken that a long time ago on a very high deal. It's about winning a Super Bowl and being fair." (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Taking Murray at his word, it's interesting that he thinks he has better chance at winning a Super Bowl in Philadelphia than he does in Dallas. Murray is expected to get $21 million guaranteed. Ryan Mathews agreed to a deal with Philadelphia yesterday but has yet to officially sign the contract. He may chose to abandon the situation now that Murray is in the mix.
|Eagles agree with RB Ryan Mathews -- Wed Mar 11 2:08 pm --|
3-year deal, $5 million guaranteed

FF Today's Take: The deal is reportedly worth $11.5 million that includes $5 million guaranteed. There are also rumors that this signing doesn't necessarily mean the Eagles will stop pursuing DeMarco Murray. We shall see. If not, Mathews should see his fantasy value jump in Chip Kelly's high-volume offense, assuming he can stay healthy. Mathews missed eleven games last season with ankle and knee injuries. If no other backs are brought into the mix, Mathews will carry RB2 value into drafts with low-end RB1 upside.
