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 | Antonio Andrews stepping up (Thu Jun 23, 11:53 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews has responded well to the added competition of RB DeMarco Murray and RB Derrick Henry, head coach Mike Mularkey said.

Our View: Andrews powerful running style and low center of gravity makes him a useful back in an "exotic smashmouth" approach. While the Titans don't have the money or draft capital invested in him that they have in Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry, Andrews has momentum and a chip on his shoulder. We will hear from him again, but it might not be this year in Tennessee.

Titans |DeMarco Murray in better situation (Wed Jun 22, 07:32 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray believes Tennessee's offensive system is a better fit for him than the Philadelphia Eagles' offense. 'It's strictly downhill and that's what I've been accustomed to my entire life,' Murray said. 'Nothing against last year or what happened, it just didn't work out, but I'm very excited about this upcoming season.'

Our View: Murray was flummoxed by a Philadelphia running game that asked for more first step burst from him. A downhill running game does suit him, but it could limit the amount of read option calls for Marcus Mariota, because that requires the running back to take the carry from a standstill instead of with a head of steam. Derrick Henry will also do best in a downhill system, so while this enhances Murray, it also gives Henry a good chance to outplay him or at least be the hotter hand at times.
