Eagles | DeMarco Murray unlikely to be cut

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:45:59 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is guaranteed $7 million in 2016, and the Eagles would take a $13 million salary cap hit if they were to release him before June 1, which makes Murray unlikely to be cut. Murray would likely have to take a pay cut to be traded.

Fantasy Tip: A tumultuous season in 2015 under Chip Kelly made Murray a huge first-round fantasy disappointment. He's likely to share touches with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles again, so don't expect anything more than low-end RB2 numbers under a new coaching staff, to boot.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray committed to Eagles

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 16:48:06 -0800

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he is committed to the Eagles despite rumors that there may be dissension between Murray and Philadelphia and despite a tweet by Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant telling Murray to return to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Much can be made of nothing when it comes to the NFL offseason, and perhaps this is one of those cases. If Murray does indeed stay with the Eagles, he'll still be splitting touches with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles, but he could also see more success under new head coach Doug Pederson and in a less complicated offensive system.

Seahawks | DeMarco Murray not a fit for Seattle?

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 16:39:18 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray drew interest from the Seattle Seahawks last offseason before he signed with the Eagles. He could be pursued by them again this offseason if he does not return to Philadelphia. That move may not make much sense for Seattle, though, according to Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com. Kapadia believes RB Thomas Rawls is still the answer for Seattle's future backfield even if Murray is available.

Fantasy Tip: It's no guarantee that Murray won't be back with the Eagles next season, but it's looking more unlikely as the offseason unfolds. Ryan Mathews is a capable replacement if Murray is gone, while Darren Sproles would continue to serve as the Eagles' passing down running back.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant wants DeMarco Murray back

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 15:51:52 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray may not return to the Philadelphia Eagles next season, and Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has already started recruiting Murray back to Dallas. The Cowboys are one of the teams included among those who might be interested in signing Murray.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a lot to play out for Murray and the Eagles before next season. The Cowboys, Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks are three teams that were interested in him last year. A reunion with Dallas might make sense, but Darren McFadden is coming off a surprisingly productive season. Don't look too much into Murray's fantasy value until there's a clearer picture of his status in Philadelphia.

Eagles | Three teams eyeing DeMarco Murray?

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 14:35:36 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray could be courted by the Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders or Dallas Cowboys if he does not return to the Eagles next season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Those three teams were interested in Murray last offseason before he signed with the Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was a big disappointment in his first season with the Eagles last year. Philadelphia has more than a capable backfield aside from Murray in Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles. It's too early to say what Murray's fantasy value will be in 2016, but it's looking more and more likely that he won't be an Eagle.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray on the outs in Philly?

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:57:14 -0800

The Philadelphia Eagles and RB DeMarco Murray appear to be at odds regarding his future with the organization. The division is based on Murray's disappointing 2015 season, the team's conviction he is the long-term answer at running back and the huge five-year, $40 million contract he signed last offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ran for only 702 yards and six touchdowns last season, which obviously isn't a good return for a player averaging $8 million a year. The Eagles have a very capable reserve in Ryan Mathews, so rookie head coach Doug Pederson and the new front office could decide to part ways with Murray this offseason. If Murray remains in Philly, his fantasy ceiling will likely be as a low-end RB2 sharing carries with Mathews.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews to get FB

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:55:31 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RBs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews are expected to have company in the backfield in 2016, as head coach Doug Pederson has liked to have a fullback on the roster and use him to block in the running game.

Fantasy Tip: Murray might especially benefit from a more power running game attack, similar to his last years in Dallas. He could be a big-time fantasy sleeper, as some stay away from him from a lack of production in 2015 under the old regime. Mathews will once again be a solid handcuff and mid- to late-round fantasy pick if and when Murray goes down.

Eagles | Long touchdown run for DeMarco Murray

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 18:12:57 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray had 12 carries for 69 yards, including a 54-yard touchdown run on his first carry, in a 35-30 win over the New York Giants in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was one of the biggest fantasy busts this season, and while a coaching change this offseason could help his value, it is still risky to expect him to be a starting-caliber back on a weekly basis next year.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray likely to stick around

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 10:32:35 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is likely to stay in Philadelphia after the team fired head coach Chip Kelly, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was a huge fantasy bust this year and wasn't the right fit for Kelly's offensive scheme. As long as Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles are around, though, Murray's fantasy upside is limited. However, heading into 2016 under a new coaching staff, there is some optimism that Murray can bounce back. Murray could be a fine sleeper pick against a weak New York Giants run defense in daily games this weekend, but you'd be putting a lot of faith on the line.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray to stick around

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 21:12:01 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray met with team owner Jeffrey Lurie on the team plane after Week 13's game to discuss his role with the team. He expressed a lack of confidence in Chip Kelly, fired as head coach Tuesday, Dec. 29. Murray has struggled in his first season with the team, averaging 3.5 yards per carry with a total of 633 rushing yards. He is likely to stay in Philadelphia now that Kelly is out of a job, according to reports.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was a poor fit in Kelly's system, but perhaps the team will now have a more conventional offense where the prized free agent from last year's offseason will be able to shine. Murray might come on the cheap in 2016 in standard fantasy leagues as some look back rather than forward.
