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.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Davis has been ruled out for Week 3. Consider it a bump for Eric Decker, Rishard Matthews and Taywan Taylor, though the matchup (vs. Seattle) is not very good.

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

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.

Uh oh. Titans WR Corey Davis has a hamstring injury.

Related players: Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker

Fantasy Impact:

The big concern is he missed the entire preseason with a hamstring injury. If he misses time, it should mean a bigger workload for both Matthews and Decker.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) took full practice reps all week. It looks like Yeldon will play against the Titans, which could put a small dent in Leonard Fournette’s snaps, specifically in the passing game. Fournette is still a fairly safe RB1 start this week.

Titans WR Corey Davis leads team in targets Week 1

Tennessean - [Full Article]

Corey Davis, the fifth overall pick in the draft, didn’t start the Titans game after missing the entire preseason with a hamstring injury. But he caught six of his team-high 10 targets for 69 yards, and played 42 of 64 possible offensive snaps (66 percent).

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Davis started to get fatigued and made some mistakes or the numbers may have been higher.

Injury scares part of Bills RB LeSean McCoy's workload

Monday, September 11, 2017, 10:13am

ESPN - [Full Article]

LeSean McCoy might not have played every snap in Sunday's win over the New York Jets, but the Buffalo Bills running back touched the ball 27 times and gained 159 of his team's 408 net offensive yards.

Based on his usage in Sunday's game, McCoy projects to receive 432 touches over a 16-game season. Since 2001, only five players -- Larry Johnson (457 touches in 2006), LaDainian Tomlinson (451 in 2002), DeMarco Murray (449 in 2014), Ricky Williams (442 in 2003) and Steven Jackson (436 in 2006) -- have totaled more carries and catches in a single season.

Fantasy Impact:

McCoy fans had a scare in the fourth quarter when he left the field and doubled over on the sideline. There were also a few incidents last season that put scares into owners. But McCoy insists his shifty running style will keep him healthy.

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (back, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 1. Janikowski should be able to kick against the Titans.
