2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Titans knew they needed a true horse to run their "Smashmouth" scheme last season and they got just that when they added DeMarco Murray. They rode him hard too. After seeing 240 touches in 2015, the Titans leaned on Murray 346 times in 2016. The wear and tear did take its toll on the beastly running back causing him to slip from being a top three fantasy running back to playing like a RB2 over the last month of the season. Reports this off-season have noted Murray's desire to remain in a true workhorse role as well as HC Mike Mularkey's intent on working Derrick Henry into the mix. It's hard to imagine the Titans keeping the talented (and younger) Henry in a true backup role again this year so expect Murray's touches to settle in closer to the sub-300 mark. A reduced workload shouldn't deter fantasy owners from trusting Murray to reach double-digit touchdowns and over 1,200 total yards as a RB1. Murray did have surgery on his finger recently but it shouldn't have any impact on his performance in 2017.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury DeMarco Murray more than likely to play
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 24, 7:30 am

Tennessee Titans
Titans RB DeMarco Murray, listed as questionable for Sunday, is “more than likely” to play vs Seattle, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray was limited in practice this week, but it sounds like he will be on the field. His role remains to be seen, but smart money would be on Derrick Henry receiving the bulk of reps at running back. Murray can't be trusted in Week 3.


Injury No practice for DeMarco Murray on Thursday
Sat out Wednesday as well; still day-to-day
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 21, 8:05 pm

Tennessee Titans
DeMarco Murray (hammy) didn't practice today. He was inside on the treadmill during the viewing period. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Tennessee seems willing to let Murray play and start if he can show the coaching staff something before the end of the week, but owners probably need to consider other alternatives considering he is obviously less than 100 percent and the matchup (Seattle). If he ends up sitting, Derrick Henry figures to be a strong candidate for 20 touches and should be trusted as a RB2, even in a difficult matchup.

FFToday's Take: While it appears the Derrick Henry era is about to begin in Tennessee, owners should pump the breaks just a bit, especially with Seattle and Houston coming up next. Murray had an 8-2 advantage in touches before half and enjoyed a 37-30 edge in snaps despite barely playing after the break. It does seem as though Murray would be well-served by sitting out a week or two, however, so Henry would be worth a fantasy start should that end up being the case.


Injury Murray leaves in 3rd quarter with hamstring injury
Titans turn to Derrick Henry in Murray's absence
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 18, 10:45 am

Tennessee Titans
DeMarco Murray had just 25 yards on nine carries, the fewest since he joined the team, and left in the third quarter with a tight hamstring. It was the same hamstring that caused him problems during the preseason. (The Tennessean)

FFToday's Take: Derrick Henry finished with a career-high 92 rushing yards on 14 carries in Murray's absence. Most of Henry's high draft cost was directed at his enormous upside and likely RB1 status if Murray were to go down with injury. Murray has 69 rushing yards on 21 carries through two games.


Injury Eric Decker will sit Sunday against Bears
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 25, 1:08 pm

Tennessee Titans
Mike Mularkey said Titans had a great week of practice. Eric Decker (ankle) and Harry Douglas (knee) won't play Sunday. Mularkey not willing to commit to DeMarco Murray playing just yet. Tajae Sharpe will play. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Decker missed practice Friday and won't play on Sunday against the Bears. RB DeMarco may also sit with a hamstring injury. A decision on his availability will be made on Saturday.


Injury DeMarco Murray back at practice Monday
Titans RB should get work in upcoming preseason games
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 15, 9:04 am

Tennessee Titans
Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) on Twitter: "@DeMarcoMurray worked extensively in @Titans practice tonight. Biggest step in return from hamstring injury" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: DeMarco Murray is one of the most productive back in football when healthy, and this is a team that's focused on the running game. He's a Top 10 fantasy RB and a safe bet for consistent touches, even if the Titans work Derrick Henry in more this season.


DeMarco Murray fully healthy
Recovered from early-June finger surgery
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 24, 4:40 pm

Tennessee Titans
DeMarco Murray said his ring finger is healed and he's ready to roll. (104.5 The Zone - Paul Kuharsky)

FFToday's Take: It was a "minor" procedure for an injury Murray said he suffered in Week 2 last season. Despite entering his age-29 season, Murray appears primed for another huge season despite the presence of Derrick Henry thanks to a vastly improved supporting cast. With one of the league's best offensive lines paving the way, Murray is a solid pick in the second round of fantasy drafts.
