Summary

Running Back Rank: #8All Players: #11
Murray had a monster season, serving as the focal point of the Cowboys' offense much of the year. He got consistent work running the ball and nearly ran for 2,000 yards. He had more than 2,200 total yards and 13 touchdowns. Murray had 100-yard rushing games all but four games. The only issue was his huge workload, finishing with 393 carries. He had a bit of an injury history before last season, but played a full year this past season and showed he could carry the load at running back. Murray heads to the Eagels this season to serve as their top back in a high-octane offense. He does have Ryan Mathews behind him on the depth chart, though, which could cut into his workload. Murray is the complete package at running back. He is a home-run threat every time he touches the ball. Murray isn't a huge back but has decent strength. He has elite speed and great moves in the open field. Murray also is a very good receiver out of the backfield.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
You have to worry about his health after last season. Remember, he had more than 400 total touches. But he is young enough for this not to be a concern for maybe another few years. For now, consider him a top-10 fantasy back. His numbers are going to decrease some with less touches and Mathews vying for carries. So we have a hard time seeing him match last year but he can still get around 1,700 total yards and 12 scores in this offense. Murray is the real deal.

comments about DeMarco Murray

Notes

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy strikes more fear into defenses than Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray, according to a top personnel executive. 'I'll take McCoy over Murray every time,' the personnel executive said. 'When you played the Eagles, you feared McCoy. He was the guy who scared you the most. When you played Dallas, you didn't fear Murray. He's good. But you didn't fear him. You feared Dez (Bryant), or (Tony) Romo, but not Murray.'

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray was one of two running backs with at least 40 targets last season that caught 89% of those targets. He caught 57 of his 64 targets. The other running back was Oakland Raiders RB Roy Helu.

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is expected to have the rushing workload divided between he and RB Ryan Mathews, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Wednesday, June 3. The OC would not reveal what the percentage of carries would be for either back.

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is going to be missed by his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, according to retired WR Michael Irvin. 'I want to upchuck sometimes when I hear the thoughts of others and (they say), 'Oh, you can put any running back behind that offensive line of the Dallas Cowboys,' Irvin said. 'I say, 'Really? Why did they hand the ball off to DeMarco Murray 392 times? Why didn't they stick anybody back there last year?' Because they already knew.'

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo said Tuesday, March 31, he would have taken a pay cut in order for the team to retain RB DeMarco Murray (Eagles). 'DeMarco ended up asking me, 'Why don't you take a pay cut?'' Romo said. 'I was like, 'I will. I will take a pay cut to go do this.' I was like, 'They're going to restructure me and the whole thing, 'that's the same thing in some ways just for salary-cap purposes.' In the end, the Cowboys never approached Romo about a a pay cut and Murray left for a five-year deal from the rival Philadelphia Eagles.

The Philadelphia Eagles traded RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills because head coach Chip Kelly desires a one-cut running back, according to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. Lurie praised McCoy as a player, but the move was not financially driven. Kelly felt he could garner more production from a different running back or two. Lurie used the term 'power spread' on multiple occasions to describe Kelly's offense. RBs DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews figure to share the work.

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray's five-year deal is official. The deal is worth $42 million with $21 million guaranteed.
Fantasy Impact: His fantasy value takes a hit, having to share some work with Ryan Mathews. But you still have to like him as a low-end No. 1 back. He'll produce in this offense.
