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 RB at worst, and could push for RB1 honors yet again depending on how Kelly plans on divvying up the carries between Murray, Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles.
