2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
When Felix Jones went down with an ankle injury in Week 6, Murray took over the starting role and proved the Cowboys made the correct decision by drafting him in the 3rd round of the 2011 draft. Murray ran wild over the St. Louis Rams in Week 7 with 25 rushes for 253 yards and a score. He put together a string of solid performances until suffering a broken ankle in Week 14 that ended his season. Murray possesses outstanding speed, enough agility to make tacklers miss on the second level and enough strength to run over defenders when he has a head of steam. Unfortunately, he also can’t stay healthy making him a risky proposition as a RB1 in 2012. One thing is for certain, head coach Jason Garrett will give him the ball enough to establish himself as an upper tier running back. In the seven games that he was the Cowboys primary back, Murray accumulated 155 touches. His talent and productivity when he played last season coupled with the Cowboys strong offense basically ensure that some owner in your league will draft him as their RB1 and take on that risk. You need to decide if that owner is going to be you.

Hamstring injury
Titans Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker will not play in Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. Walker missed two days of practice this week with a hamstring injury, and the team was waiting until Sunday morning to make a final call after listing him as questionable. (ProFootballTalk)

FF Today's Take: It will be hard to trust QB Marcus Mariota without one of his top weapons. Rookie WR Tajae Sharpe should see an increase in targets. Expect more usage out of running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.

Rookie RB Henry to get carries too
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- When the Tennessee Titans drafted Derrick Henry 45th overall, coach Mike Mularkey said that wouldn't change his outlook on veteran running back DeMarco Murray. After Wednesday's practice, Mularkey reiterated the same theme about the way Tennessee plans to divide carries Sunday in the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings. "It's DeMarco," Mularkey said. "It's DeMarco, and when DeMarco needs a blow, it'll be Derrick. And maybe if I feel like we need a change of pace, I'll put Derrick [in]. ... They are going to both get opportunities for sure." (ESPN.com)

FF Today's Take: This was expected news but it reinforces the notion that the Titans should evolve into a consistently high-volume rushing attack. As long as he stays healthy, Murray should be amongst the leaders in touches for running backs once the season gets underway.

DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry will work in tandem
The Titans will have a game plan for DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, of course. Offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie will be calling the plays, but certainly Mularkey can make requests. “We’ll find ways to get [Henry] on the field,” he said. “We know what he’s capable of doing. I just want to be careful, I did it one time when I went in and was worrying about how many numbers guys were getting and it didn’t work. “We’re going to do what’s best for the team like we’ve been doing from the beginning. And whatever that is, if he’s a large part of it, [he] is. But he’ll have a role, definitely.” Mularkey said while Henry has shown he needs to be on the field, Murray hasn’t shown any reason not to be on the field. (ESPN.com)

FF Today's Take: There really isn't anything new to chew on here other than the confirmation that rookie Derrick Henry has carved out a true role within Tennessee's backfield. Instead of simply spelling DeMarco Murray in the traditional backup role, Henry is expected to be a consistent part of the running game each week. Nonetheless, the team will need improved play from its offensive line in order to make either running back a top option. In redraft leagues Murray looks like a nice RB2 value heading into the year while Henry deserves to be moved firmly into RB3 territory.
