DeMarco Murray is already a first round pick in my mind as I have him ranked as the 7th RB on my board. He only averaged 2 receptions a game last season, but he wasn’t the full time guy all year. He did average over 50 passed his last 2 seasons at Oklahoma, so we know he is capable. The only real knock on the guy is his health. Coach Garrett had this to say:
“We’d like to be able to use him more both in the play-action situations and also as a guy who we put out into the formation, out of the backfield, and see what he can do out there,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s shown that he can do it. He just needs chances and experience at this level.”
This definitely puts a exclamation point on Murray for me in both standard and PPR leagues. I will be targeting him in the late first in upcoming drafts.
