    Eagles' DeMarco Murray: Tallies 91 yards against Tampa Bay

    Murray carried the ball 13 times for 64 yards in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay. He added four catches on five targets for 27 yards and fumbled during the game. The fumble could spur memories of Murray's fumbling problems from 2014, but all five of Murray's fumbles last season came in the season's first eight games and he had gone 17 fumble-free games until Sunday's mishap. Though the score forced Philadelphia to limit the run, Sunday's 4.9 yards-per-carry average was Murray's second highest of the season. Murray also caught at least four passes for the sixth time this season and moved up to second on the team in receptions. Fantasy owners may be disappointed with his five total touchdowns after last season's tally of 13, but the fifth-year back is collecting enough yardage on the ground and through the air to make it worth it to wait for scores.

    Eagles' DeMarco Murray: Produces through volume in loss to Dolphins

    Murray carried 22 times for 61 yards and caught six of eight targets for another 58 yards in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. Despite his inefficiency, Murray produced one of his better outputs of the season in terms of total yards, although he failed to find the end zone for just the second time in the last five games. Backup Ryan Mathews left the game after suffering a concussion, leading to Murray setting a new season-high in carries. Murray would stand to benefit from an increase in usage if Mathews misses time, and it remains to be seen how quickly the latter progresses through the NFL's concussion protocol. Philadelphia will host the Buccaneers in Week 11.

    Eagles' DeMarco Murray: Active Sunday

    Murray (groin) is active Sunday against the Dolphins. Murray logged full practices each day this week despite the ailment, so the back was likely never in true danger of missing the Week 10 contest. Although Murray has scored in three of his last four games, the Dolphins have allowed just seven rushing touchdowns on the year. They've been more susceptible to big runs, however, allowing 142.1 rushing yards per game on the year. Fellow running back Ryan Mathews (groin) will also be active for the contest, putting the Eagles backfield at full strength.

    Eagles' DeMarco Murray: 160 yards in return to Dallas

    Murray ran for 18 times for 83 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 78 yards in Sunday's 33-27 win over the Cowboys. In his long-awaited return to his former home stadium, Murray played his best game of the season. He was a dangerous weapon out of the backfield, both in the run game and the passing game, catching a couple of wheel routes that caught Dallas linebackers on their heels. After reportedly struggling with injury troubles in the first half of the season, Murray looks healthy and dynamic as ever as the Eagles face the second half of the season.

    Eagles RB DeMarco Murray totals 20 carries in Week 5 win

    Eagles running back DeMarco Murray rushed 20 times for 83 yards and a touchdown and caught seven passes on eight targets for 37 receiving yards Sunday against the Saints. One week after complaining that he wasn't getting enough touches, Murray finished with 26 more rushing yards than he had in his previous three games combined. Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles combined for 100 yards on 12 carries, with Mathews rumbling for a 33-yard run and a two-yard touchdown. However, Murray appears poised to continue getting a majority of the touches. Up next is a Week 6 divisional matchup against the Giants.

    Eagles RB DeMarco Murray kept quiet in Week 4 loss to Redskins

    Eagles running back DeMarco Murray carried eight times for 36 yards and caught both of his targets for another 12 yards in Sunday's loss to Washington. Another disappointing day at the office for the 27-year-old, who actually rushed for a season-high in yardage, but saw limited action as the Eagles ran the ball just 18 times. Philadelphia's propensity to fall behind has clearly limited Murray's involvement, as they have now run the ball 18 times or fewer in each of their three losses. Another week removed from his hamstring injury and with the struggling Saints coming to town, Week 5 presents Murray with a chance to make his first real fantasy impact of the season.

    Eagles RB DeMarco Murray ready to roll Sunday

    Eagles featured back DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is active Sunday against Washington. Murray was listed as questionable despite practicing fully Thursday and Friday. He was unable to play last week due to the ailment, and with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles both playing well in Murray's absence, it's possible the latter could get limited touches Sunday against a strong Redskins defense.

    Report: DeMarco Murray expected to be active Week 4

    Eagles running back DeMarco Murray is expected to be active Sunday against Washington. However, he will test out his hamstring during pregame warmups before a decision is made, according to NFL Network. Murray was able to practice fully Thursday and Friday, so it was a bit surprising that he was officially listed as questionable. Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles both played very well against the Jets last Sunday, so even if Murray plays, he could lose snaps to the other two backs. Washington has also been excellent against the run, allowing just 75 rushing yards per game through three weeks, which is another knock on Murray's Fantasy upside Sunday.

    Eagles RB DeMarco Murray questionable for Week 4 despite improvement

    Eagles running back DeMarco Murray is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Washington. Despite logging full practices Thursday and Friday, Murray didn't earn the probable designation. He still seems more likely to play than not, but owners will want to keep a close eye on the situation, after Murray was surprisingly inactive in Week 3. If Murray misses another game, Ryan Mathews will get most of the carries, with Darren Sproles potentially also taking on a significantly larger role.

    Eagles list LB Mychal Kendricks as questionable for Week 4

    Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) has been designated as questionable for the Sunday game in Washington. Kendricks logged full practices throughout the week, which would typically lead to a probable designation. He should be able to play, but between his 'questionable' tag and teammate DeMarco Murray's surprise absence last week, it would be unwise to assume Kendricks will suit up. If he does play, Kendricks should be assured of a three-down role, as Kiko Alonso (knee) has been ruled out.
