The Titans were demolished last weekend by the Houston Texans 57-14 and quarterback Marcus Mariota was lost to a hamstring injury, summing up a tough week 4 in Tennessee. With Matt Cassell taking the reigns at quarterback, the Titans will need to lean on Murray and their run game if they expect to have a shot against the Dolphins.
Fantasy Impact: Despite averaging 5 yards per carry, Murray has been terribly inconsistent at the start of 2017 making it a struggle to project his production. He looked good against the Raiders in Week 1 but the Titans struggled as a whole on offense. A hamstring injury hampered him in week 2 but he bounced back unexpectedly against the Seahawks with 115 yards and a touchdown in week 3. After a dud in week 4, what can we expect from him?
The Titans play the Dolphins this week who are coming off of back-to-back of losses to the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints. Matt Cassell having a week to actually prepare will give the Titans a shot in this game. They will get back to the ground and pound attack because the Dolphins are incapable of putting up points in a hurry. Murray, who put in a full week of practice, should get ample opportunities this week against a vulnerable Dolphins defense.
Adam Schefter is reporting that DeMarco Murray has donated $25,000 to the Las Vegas Police Department and $25,000 to the families of the victims in last week’s mass shooting in Las Vegas. Murray grew up in Vegas. He said this about the shooting:
“When I heard about the terror and devastation in my hometown of Las Vegas, I couldn’t believe it,” Murray said this weekend. “I was shocked, sickened and scared for the families and friends of the victims. I want to help and do whatever I can to take away their pain from such a horrific experiences.”
It is cool to see Murray step up and do this. We need more stories like this one and less of the other garbage out there that divides us.
Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray is donating $25,000 to the Las Vegas Police Department and another $25,000 to families of the victims in last week’s mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip.
Murray, who grew up in Las Vegas, says the community is still near and dear to him. He said the city will be on his mind Sunday when the Titans play in Miami.
“When I heard about the terror and devastation in my hometown of Las Vegas, I couldn’t believe it,” Murray said this weekend. “I was shocked, sickened and scared for the families and friends of the victims. I want to help and do whatever I can to take away their pain from such a horrific experience.
“Las Vegas is a special city not just to me, my family and friends, but this whole world. It’s a shame … for the city to have to endure such an attack. I pray for the victims and their families and hope our great country can work diligently towards keeping our people safe and eliminate these kinds of attacks in the future.”
