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 likely to run often (Tue Jul 19, 09:58 AM) - Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray is expected to be the team's workhorse in 2016.

Our View: The Titans want to run the ball as much as possible with their 'exotic smashmouth' offense which features both Murray and rookie Derrick Henry. The system is a better fit for Murray than what he had with the Eagles, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to produce like he did when he was with the Cowboys. Instead, consider Murray a low-end RB2 with upside. Murray has a current ADP of RB20 (5.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.
