Summary

The Titans traded for DeMarco Murray and made him their bell-cow back. Despite the addition of Derrick Henry, Murray was the No. 4 fantasy runner last year, compiling 1664 yards from scrimmage and 12 total touchdowns. He also had his third season six years with at least 53 receptions. Henry played well, but he was clearly the change of pace with less than a third of Murray's touches. Although there will be talk of Henry earning more carries, it's hard to imagine that Tennessee will significantly lighten Murray's load unless the veteran gets hurt. Murray's quickness and experience on passing downs give him the edge. At the same time, a significant injury could be just what Henry needs to earn and keep the starting role. He's currently day-to-day with a minor hamstring injury and the Titans are being cautious with him. (August 14)

Titans | DeMarco Murray expected to play (Thu Aug 17, 08:10 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is expected to play in the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Saturday, Aug. 19.

Our View: This is a good sign that his hamstring issue is minor, but if it comes again in the regular season, Derrick Henry will be an RB1 for any time Murray misses.

Titans | DeMarco Murray practices Monday (Mon Aug 14, 10:13 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 14, and did more than expected.

Our View: Murray's fine and fantasy owners should be thrilled about adding him as a RB1 in drafts. Look for him to go off the board near the turn between rounds one and two.

Titans | DeMarco Murray revving up workload (Sun Aug 13, 09:32 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) will return to practice this week and 'do more than he did last week,' head coach Mike Mularkey said Sunday, Aug. 13.

Our View: The Titans can ease Murray back into action so this hamstring injury is not aggravated. By Week 1 of the regular season, Murray should be good to go and a set-it-and-forget-it starter for your fantasy team.

Titans | DeMarco Murray due back Monday (Thu Aug 10, 12:21 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is expected to return to practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Our View: Barring injury, Murray will be the lead back here. Derrick Henry will probably get a few more touches this year but not enough to impact Murray, who definitely found his mojo again in Tennessee. He's going as a top ten back in drafts right now, and we think he'll more than hit that mark in production in 2017.
