Fantasy Analysis
Week 14 Projections
Thanks to a week of rest, Murray's nagging toe injury that likely contributed to his soft Week 12 outing (his only game of the season without either a score or 100-plus total yards) has improved, according to media reports. Since the Denver Broncos defense has been a brick wall against the pass all season, look for a heavy dose of three-down workhorse Murray (22.8 touches per game). The Broncos rank just 22nd in fantasy points allowed to the running back position.
Rushing: 83 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 23 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: 475 Yards, 4 TD.
Receiving: 25 Receptions, 275 Yards, 2 TD.
