Summary

DeMarco Murray dominated the NFL landscape in 2014. After several promising seasons in Dallas that were somewhat limited by nagging injuries, Murray put together a dominant year. Running behind the NFL's best offensive line, Murray led the NFL in carries (392), rushing yards (1,845), rushing TDs (13), and yards from scrimmage (2,261). Murray parlayed his breakthrough season into free agent riches with division rival Philadelphia. Although the Eagles system is different from Dallas', it's worth noting that LeSean McCoy led the NFL in yards two seasons ago under Chip Kelly. There's no reason Murray can't thrive in Philadelphia, as the centerpiece of a unit that's finished Top 5 in points scored in consecutive seasons. Murray's workload will take a step back from last year's 450+ touches -- but that should help keep the powerhouse runner fresh for the stretch run. Murray projects as a top 10 fantasy back, but Kelly's propensity to use all three backs in different roles inhibits Murray from finishing as a top 3 option. (August 16)

Eagles | DeMarco Murray not sure of workload (Thu Aug 27, 10:02 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he doesn't know what the running back rotation will be this year, but he said he doesn't expect to 'alternate series' with RB Ryan Mathews.

Our View: Coming off a 393 carry season, we can confidently say he will not repeat that level of carries. That said, he should get the bulk of the work and be worthy of a late first round pick as a solid RB1. Considering his injury history and the fallout for a lot of backs with 300 plus carries, it might be wise to secure a solid backup. Ryan Mathews is considered as an RB4 in general but might be worth a round earlier pick than the seventh rounder he currently sits at in current fantasy drafts.
