2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The teamís off-season plan to build an offense around Marcus Mariota was set into action when the team pulled off a trade to acquire DeMarco Murray. This was seen as mostly a salary dump for the Eagles and a buy low situation for Tennessee. Considering the lack of a consistent force in the backfield throughout the 2015 season, it is a good gamble for the Titans and raises the fantasy potential of the entire offense in the process.

It would have been tough for any running back coming off a 2014 campaign with almost two seasonís worth of touches (450!) to be a success the following year, let alone working in Chip Kellyís up-tempo offense. In fact, itís somewhat amazing that Murray was able to register over 230 touches and avoid serious injury in the process. While plenty of fantasy managers will want to focus on the decline of Murray in Philadelphia, those who look towards the future will anticipate a rebound. And it could be huge. The offense is deeper across the field and the coaching staff is drooling over the possibility to have one guy take over the majority of the carries. Thatís a rare commodity in fantasy leagues and one that is not being valued in current drafts. Murrayís injury risk is real and prevents the ex-Eagle from being a lottery pick. Nonetheless, his only competition is from a talented rookie with a limited skill set and a slew of complementary pieces that have failed to deliver when given the chance. Even if you donít think Murray is capable of returning to elite RB1 status he is in an ideal situation to earn a profit on his current fourth round price tag.

Goal-line work in Derrick Henry's future?
DeMarco Murray averaging less than 3.3 YPC over last two weeks
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 28, 7:40 pm

Tennessee Titans
Mike Mularkey said the Titans have discussed using Derrick Henry more in short-yardage situations. (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It was thought the 247-pound Henry was going to steal at least some of the goal-line carries when he was drafted and again when he impressed in the preseason, but Tennessee opted to give DeMarco Murray a league-high 274 touches through the first 12 weeks of the season. Now it appears the Titans, at the very least, may want to take away the potential high-impact touches from Murray. Look for Henry to steal at least 8-10 touches from Murray moving forward, putting him on the flex radar.


DeMarco Murray back at practice Thursday
Sat out Wednesday's session

DeMarco Murray back on practice field (Thursday) for Titans. (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray has routinely been getting Wednesdays off lately, so Tennessee is just keeping the 28-year-old's legs as fresh as possible. He has scored a rushing touchdown in five straight games and seems like a pretty good bet to finish as a top-five back again this week versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Murray (toe) was held out of practice Wednesday for precautionary reasons, Jim Wyatt of titansonline.com reports. (CBSSports.com)

FFToday's Take: Tennessee is giving DeMarco Murray a well earned day of rest after he did it all against the Packers in Week 10. Look for him to return to practice Thursday as the team prepares for a key divisional match up against the Colts this week.


Injury DeMarco Murray good to go
Toe injury shouldn't keep Murray off the field
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 6, 8:15 am

Tennessee Titans
Titans RB DeMarco Murray is good to go vs. Chargers despite foot injury that limited some practice time this week, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray injured his toe in last week's game but should suit up an play today against the Chargers after practicing Thursday and Friday. There's some concern that Derrick Henry could eat into Murray's workload this week after the rookie posted 97 total yards and a TD against the Jaguars.


Injury Delanie Walker inactive
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 25, 11:30 am

Tennessee Titans
Titans Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker will not play in Sundayís game vs. the Raiders. Walker missed two days of practice this week with a hamstring injury, and the team was waiting until Sunday morning to make a final call after listing him as questionable. (ProFootballTalk)

FFToday's Take: It will be hard to trust QB Marcus Mariota without one of his top weapons. Rookie WR Tajae Sharpe should see an increase in targets. Expect more usage out of running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.


DeMarco Murray set to lead Titans' rushing attack
Rookie RB Henry to get carries too
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 7, 6:34 pm

Tennessee Titans
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- When the Tennessee Titans drafted Derrick Henry 45th overall, coach Mike Mularkey said that wouldn't change his outlook on veteran running back DeMarco Murray. After Wednesday's practice, Mularkey reiterated the same theme about the way Tennessee plans to divide carries Sunday in the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings. "It's DeMarco," Mularkey said. "It's DeMarco, and when DeMarco needs a blow, it'll be Derrick. And maybe if I feel like we need a change of pace, I'll put Derrick [in]. ... They are going to both get opportunities for sure." (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: This was expected news but it reinforces the notion that the Titans should evolve into a consistently high-volume rushing attack. As long as he stays healthy, Murray should be amongst the leaders in touches for running backs once the season gets underway.
