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.

DeMarco Murray done in Tennessee?
Derrick Henry taking control of Titans' backfield
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 11, 11:30 pm

Tennessee Titans
It was uncertain exactly when the time would come, but we are likely witnessing the passing of the Tennessee Titans’ running back torch from DeMarco Murray to Derrick Henry. As the Heisman-winning duo of Marcus Mariota and Henry marched past the Kansas City Chiefs last Saturday, it became clearer that this is the present and the future at the same time. "He has the ability to lead the league in rushing. I think he has the ability to be the league MVP. The sky is the limit. We’re scratching the surface in what he can do. The more opportunities he gets, the better he gets. I have no question that Derrick can be a 1,500-1,800-yard type of running back when he gets the opportunities," former Oilers/Titans running back Eddie George said. (ESPN - Cameron Wolfe)

FFToday's Take: It's not hard to see Henry has been the best back in Tennessee this season, but too much has been made of the former's fourth-quarter production and effectiveness. Of his 390 rushing yards in the fourth quarter, 147 have come on same inside-fake, outside toss runs to the left side with the game well in hand. With that said, Henry is just the kind of back owners should be able to count on 300-plus carries from for the foreseeable future. If Murray is cut this spring, Henry could very well be a first-round pick in drafts this summer.

FFToday's Take: We expected Murray (knee) to miss this game and now it's official. Derrick Henry has touched the ball 54 times in the last two games and should carry the load against the Patriots.

Expect Derrick Henry to carry the load

Tennessee Titans
DeMarco Murray (knee) did not practice Tuesday. Just a small chance for him to fight to return Saturday vs. Pats. It will Derrick Henry’s show regardless. (Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray has been battling a knee injury since Week 16 and it's unlikely he will suit up against the Patriots. David Fluellen has been Henry's backup the last two weeks but has seen very little action (1 target).


Titans ready to move on from DeMarco Murray?
Ready to ride Derrick Henry
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jan 6, 1:30 pm

Tennessee Titans
From @NFLGameDay: The #Titans are ready to make Derrick Henry the bell cow, so don't be surprised if they move on from DeMarco Murray this offseason. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners have been calling for this all season but it appears 2018 will be the year Tennessee will make Henry their featured back. Murray's contract is structured with $0 in dead cap money if he's released this off-season.


Injury DeMarco Murray ruled out for Wildcard Weekend
Titans RB missed practice Thursday

DeMarco Murray (knee) ruled out Saturday vs KC. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Murray missed practice on Thursday with a sprained knee and wasn't expected to play despite the Titans holding out hope earlier in the week. As he did in Week 17, Derrick Henry will carry the running back load for the Titans against the Chiefs. The Chiefs gave up the 9th fewest fantasy points to running backs this season.


Injury No practice for DeMarco Murray on Tuesday
Mularkey not ruling him out
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jan 2, 2:00 pm

Tennessee Titans
.@DeMarcoMurray did not practice today for @Titans. Mularkey not ruling him out for @Chiefs (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: DeMarco Murray missed Week 17 with a knee injury which is reportedly a torn MCL. If so, it's difficult to imagine him suiting up against the Chiefs on Saturday. Expect Derrick Henry to receive the bulk of the running back carries this weekend.

Knee injury

@DeMarcoMurray has been ruled out for Sunday for @Titans (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: DeMarco Murray suffered a knee injury last week and the Titans were hoping he could play in the finale even though it seemed like a long shot. With Murray out, Derrick Henry should be in a featured role against the Jaguars. Jacksonville represents a neutral matchup for fantasy running backs making Henry a decent option in a week with very few secure options at the position.


Injury DeMarco Murray a long-shot for Week 17
Knee sprain
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 25, 8:00 am

Tennessee Titans
Based on the pain he was in last night, & the apparent LCL sprain, it’s considered a long-shot for #Titans RB DeMarco Murray to play Sunday (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray's sprained knee is likely to keep him out of a Week 17 matchup against the Jaguars. The Titans still have playoff hopes so we should see a heavy workload for Derrick Henry making him an easy RB2 value in the final week of the regular season.


Titans remain stubborn on two-headed backfield
Mularkey: "I think we have two starters."
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 30, 8:25 pm

Tennessee Titans
Titans HC Mike Mularkey likes both (DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry), and plans to continue using them as a one-two punch. “I think the way it has worked out, it has worked just fine,” Mularkey said on Thursday. “I think we have two starters, and if somebody wants to just line up on the first play of the game to justify, ‘This guy is the starter,’ I don’t know. It is not something we are worried about. They are both really good at what they do.” (TitansOnline.com - Jim Wyatt)

FFToday's Take: It seems pretty clear at this point Murray isn't going to be completely healthy this season. It is also completely possible he isn't going to return to his 2016 form either. Henry hasn't been nearly as good as some are making him out to be and the line hasn't blocked nearly as well this season, but he has consistently proven to be the better runner this season. However, until Mularkey's mind changes, both backs will be little more than low-end RB2s.


Injury DeMarco Murray battling knee problem
HC says RB past shoulder and hamstring issues
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 6, 5:50 pm

Tennessee Titans
HC Mike Mularkey: DeMarco Murray gets right back in, doesn't let anything hold him back. If he's effective we'll allow him to continue to play. (Paul Kuharsky)

FFToday's Take: Regardless of what Mularkey says, Murray has not been effective for the bulk of the season. He is averaging 3.3 yards per carry or less over his last three games, and the Titans' offense in general has been tough to watch for most of the season. But since it appears the Titans have no plans to let Murray get healthy, owners in most leagues should consider him a low-end flex option.
