Summary

DeMarco Murray is expected to be the main back for the Titans this year. He's also expected to get the ball from under center more rather than in shotgun formations. This should allow Murray to be more effective with the touches he gets. The question is how many touches will he get. Murray won't be seen on passing downs, Dexter McCluster fills that role in Tennessee, and he will need to fend off competition from Derrick Henry to get more than 200 carries. Henry will have a role, how much that eats into Murray's workload will depend on how well Henry performs. (May 21)

Titans | DeMarco Murray looks explosive (Thu May 26, 01:43 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray has received praise from both head coach Mike Mularkey and QB Marcus Mariota during organized team activities this week. 'I certainly liked some of the cuts I saw,' Mularkey said. 'Even without pads on, those were cuts he wasn't going to get touched on. It was going to be an explosive run. You can tell when a play is going to work and not work.'

Our View: Murray is saying and doing all the right things in the wake of the drafting of rookie Derrick Henry, and it looks like the result is a continued status at the top of the food chain. We're not expecting superb fantasy numbers this year, but he should serve as a second or third fantasy back in the Titans "exotic smashmouth" backfield.
