Fantasy Impact:

Other reports say Murray will be limited in practice this week, while others say as long as he can be productive he'll be on the field. Obviously his situation with injuries continues to cloud the waters with Henry as the team's other back. But it also appears the Titans plan on playing Murray even if he's not 100-percent.

Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. With a Week 8 bye looming, it’s looking like Murray will sit out this week, leaving Derrick Henry to carry the load. In this scenario, Henry is a fantastic play against the Browns.

Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) was hit with the questionable tag for the Titans' Week 7 matchup versus the Browns.

Fantasy Impact:

In a neutral matchup against the Browns, according to our aFPA metric, we have Murray ranked as our No. 17 RB in PPR leagues and he's only one spot lower in standard leagues. If Murray were to miss time, Derrick Henry would be the obvious beneficiary in terms of added playing time. Monitor the inactives reports Sunday for a clear picture.

Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 6:55pm

Mularkey: RB Derrick Henry go-to fourth quarter RB

Titans HC Mike Mularkey said the run game split on MNF (near 50-50 for DeMarco Murray-Derrick Henry) was a good model. Henry is the go-to 4th quarter RB.

Fantasy Impact:

As we also reported, Murray is dealing with some hamstring tightness but should be good to go for Week 7. But, this RB situation continues to confuse owners. In Week 5, Murray got a majority of the work which led to a lot of owners wondering what to do with Henry. If Henry is on your wire, he certainly seems worth grabbing and appears to be the back trending up, especially after an impressive Monday night effort.

Titans say QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is day-to-day

Monday, October 2, 2017, 4:35pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Titans sent quarterback Marcus Mariota for an MRI on his hamstring after he injured it in Sunday’s blowout loss to the Texans and the results don’t suggest he’s set for an extended absence from the lineup.

Coach Mike Mularkey said on Monday that the test showed a hamstring strain for Mariota and they are considering him day-to-day in terms of a timeline for a return to action. Mularkey compared Mariota’s injury to the one DeMarco Murray suffered a couple of weeks ago and the Titans are surely hoping things play out the same way.

Fantasy Impact:

The story speculated the team may not make a call on Mariota until Sunday, which obviously leaves fantasy owners hanging. The good news is it's an early game at Miami.

Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 3. Murray is looking iffy for Week 3, despite the limited practice. If he’s out, Derrick Henry would be a fantasy RB2 against a Seattle defense that got shredded by Carlos Hyde last week. In fact, according to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe, Henry is expected to see a “significant workload” regardless of Murray’s availability.

Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 7:42pm

Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Murray missed some snaps in Week 2 thanks to the injury that has lingered since training camp. He played 73% of the snaps in Week 1 and just 54% in Week 2 against the Jaguars. He’s also been vastly outplayed by Derrick Henry, who has gained 117 yards on 20 carries for a 5.85 YPC, which makes Murray’s YPC (3.29) look silly. We may be witnessing the beginning of the end of Murray’s fine run in Tennessee.

Titans RB DeMarco Murray, WR Corey Davis both day-to-day

Monday, September 18, 2017, 5:47pm

Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans running back Derrick Henry may start against the Seahawks on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.

But it won't be a changing of the guard.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he still views DeMarco Murray as the starter and Henry as the backup – when both are healthy.

Murray and rookie wide receiver Corey Davis are day-to-day with hamstring strains, Mularkey said Monday, and it’s uncertain whether either will play against Seattle. Both players missed multiple preseason games with hamstring injuries.

Fantasy Impact:

Henry had a big role last week with Murray banged up and he'll go against a Seahawk defense that was just lit up by Carlos Hyde - assuming Murray can't go.

Titans Beat: RB Derrick Henry could force team's hand

Monday, September 18, 2017, 8:40am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Titans coach Mike Mularkey began fielding questions about Derrick Henry potentially overtaking DeMarco Murray from the moment the former Alabama back was taken in the second round a year and a half ago. Mularkey has been steadfast in saying Murray is the starter. And he has been.

But now Murray is dealing with a tight hamstring that caused him to miss the fourth quarter Sunday. It’s his second hamstring injury in as many months.

Fantasy Impact:

The story eluded the team could use both styles of backs - Henry the physical runner and Murray, who is more about vision and pass catching. If anything, it could mean less of a workload going forward if Henry continues to impress.
