Week 3: at St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. DeMarco Murray rolled over the Titans' defensive front last week for 29/167/1 rushing (with 1/6/0 receiving) - so far this season he is the #1 fantasy running back in the land with 51/285/2 rushing and 4/31/0 receiving. Start him and smile if you were wise enough to draft him. The Rams were exposed by the Buccaneers' backup running back Bobby Rainey, to the tune of 22/144/0 rushing by Rainey (30/157/2 rushing for Tampa Bay as a team, with 2/6/2 rushing by Josh McCown included in the team total). The Rams also got destroyed by the Vikings' runners in Week One, allowing 31/185/1 rushing to the opposition. To date, St. Louis ranks 30th in the NFL averaging 171 rushing yards allowed per game. Murray has a great matchup to work with this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs SF (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)

Dunbar was impactful with his limited playing time, eluding defenders in the open field after receptions. On back to back catches in the first quarter, Dunbar shook free from multiple defenders. On the second, he nearly scored after a sharp jump cut. Dunbar did not see a carry against the 49ers and starter DeMarco Murray rarely left the field even late in the game.

2014 Week 2 vs TEN (11 / 27 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Dunbar soaked up double-digit carries in the comfortable road win in Tennessee, a shift from his expected passing game role. Most of Dunbar's production came deep in the fourth quarter, showing off a stutter step on one carry, then converting a third down to essentially end the game. His best chance for a score came on a red zone toss play that was stuffed by the Titans defensive pursuit.
