  Bills | Marcus Murphy has elbow injury    Mon Dec 17, 04:20 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Marcus Murphy (elbow) suffered dislocated elbow in Week 15, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Footballguys view: That didn't last long. Murphy was the lead back for the Bills on Sunday due to LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory being banged up. He got hurt in the game which led the team to turn to Keith Ford. If McCoy and Ivory miss some more time, Ford could get the starting job in Week 16. Stay tuned for practice reports later in the week.

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB Marcus Murphy (arm) will not return to the Week 15 game because of his arm injury.

  Bills | Marcus Murphy ahead of Chris Ivory?    Mon Sep 3, 12:35 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Marcus Murphy took the second snap behind LeSean McCoy and ahead of Chris Ivory during individual drills in practice Monday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation. McCoy is not going to land on the Commissioner's Exempt List at this time, but the league could revisit the situation later as McCoy is involved in an ongoing investigation. If anything happens to McCoy later in the year, Fantasy GMs are going to want his primary backup...although in that event we could see the Bills rolling with a RBBC featuring both Murphy and Ivory.

  Bills | Week 17 game recap for Bills    Sun Dec 31, 08:18 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 19-of-27 pass attempts for 204 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins while running for 35 yards on six attempts. RB Marcus Murphy led the way with seven runs for 41 yards while RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) was limited to 10 yards on 11 rushes before checking out with an injury. TE Charles Clay shined with six grabs for 64 yards on a team-high eight targets, WR Kelvin Benjamin led the wideouts with two grabs for 27 yards and TE Nick O'Leary finished with a 26-yard touchdown on his only grab.

Footballguys view: McCoy's ankle is now a very important wild card week storyline with the Bills somehow getting into the playoffs to face the Jaguars and their old coach Doug Marrone. The offense could fall on Taylor's shoulders against the toughest pass defense in the league.

  Bills | Marcus Murphy joins Bills    Mon Nov 6, 11:02 AM

Free-agent RB Marcus Murphy (Colts) signed with the Buffalo Bills' practice squad Monday, Nov. 6. OG Will Pericak was released.

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick (Missouri) for the Saints in 2015, Murphy has bounced around the league during his short pro career. He can work as a return man in addition to working as a running back. In super deep dynasty leagues we're not recommending Murphy be monitored.

  Saints | Two Saints backs may not make it    Fri Jul 21, 10:40 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Travaris Cadet and RB Marcus Murphy are projected as roster cuts with RB Alvin Kamara's versatility.

Footballguys view: Cadet is adept at catching the ball out of the backfield but hasn't shown much as a runner, while Murphy isn't even special in that arena. Both of these potential cuts make a lot of sense. Kamara has excellent burst and good hands, which will make him the easy choice to keep over the other two. The rookie is going in early drafts as the 53rd running back off the board, with an overall ADP of 161.

  Saints | Marcus Murphy in the doghouse    Tue Aug 23, 10:51 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Marcus Murphy has coughed the ball up in the return game, and head coach Sean Payton lashed out at him publicly for the second time in as many years due to the issue. He has fumbled twice in two preseason games, losing one.

Footballguys view: This is a good way to get cut. Murphy will be hard pressed to make the Saints 53-man roster.

  Saints | Running backs fighting for roster spots    Sun Jul 17, 01:42 PM

New Orleans Saints RBs Travaris Cadet, Daniel Lasco and Marcus Murphy will all be battling for a spot on the final roster, with Cadet being the most likely to make the team.

Footballguys view: Cadet may have the edge due to his pro experience, but we like the idea of Lasco earning a spot on the 53-man roster. Lasco was an all-purpose back in college at Cal, and he does everything well. He's not a pile-pusher, but Lasco is an efficient runner who does a good job following his blocks. Lasco is also good on special teams. Even if he doesn't make the team, we feel the Saints should keep him around as a developmental prospect on the practice squad.

  Saints | NOLA backup RB spots up for grabs    Wed Jun 22, 11:39 PM

New Orleans Saints RBs Travaris Cadet, Daniel Lasco, Marcus Murphy are likely to jockey for the spots behind RBs Mark Ingram, Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller. Murphy and Lasco benefit special teams, with Murphy as a return man and Lasco for coverage. Cadet might also crack the roster as a runner, receiver and return man, and the final spot might come down to Cadet and Murphy and who is hotter in training camp and the preseason.

Footballguys view: Murphy has receiving ability and could vie for the role CJ Spiller has been lackluster in so far in New Orleans. Lasco is a SPARQ freak who has top-end athleticism, but an injury-marred 2015 caused him to drop in the draft. Cadet has the most experience in the offense and could be the most productive in a receiving role. It looks like Tim Hightower will be the handcuff to Mark Ingram no matter who wins this fourth running back spot.
