Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections
The workhorse runner has averaged 23 combo touches per game and has scored in three of his last four outings. Murray didn't catch any passes last week, which was his first contest without any receptions this season. With the Tennessee Titans' passing attack finally getting on track, Murray could see less usage as a receiver going forward. Nevertheless, he's still a must-start against an Indianapolis Colts defense that has surrendered the second-most fantasy points to enemy tailbacks.
Rushing: 80 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 26 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
A roller coaster has less ups and downs than those trying to project DeMarco Murray's production in 2016. Disgruntled in Philadelphia, Murray did the best thing possible for himself and fantasy owners by finding a way out of a crowded backfield and into one in Tennessee where he would be the unquestioned bell cow for a run-first offense with an up-and-coming star at quarterback (Mariota). Murray in Titans blue seemed like a marriage made in the best interests of all parties, and many rushed to vault him back to his RB1 status from his days as a Cowboy. And then, the NFL Draft happened. Suddenly, and shockingly, the Titans aggressively picked Heisman-winning Alabama RB Derrick Henry in the 2nd round, thrusting Murray once again into the murky waters of a potential timeshare. How will Murray be used? Will he garner 200 touches or be part of a true running back split? Who is on tap for work at the goal line? Answers to these questions will be fleeting until the season begins, and by that point, it may be far too late for fantasy owners. Our advice? Be cautious and tread lightly. Murray clearly cannot command the price of an RB1, but still can put up RB2 numbers if things break right. And surely, DeMarco won't get disgruntled sharing touches, right? Right??

Rushing: 739 Yards, 5 TD.
Receiving: 35 Receptions, 245 Yards, 2 TD.
