Fantasy Analysis | 1411955458
Louis Murphy could be serviceable in short term
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Just when new Buccaneers starting quarterback Mike Glennon was developing a liking for wide receiver Mike Evans, the rookie went down late in the third quarter with a groin injury.

So naturally, he began throwing to his replacement.

Louis Murphy, last known to Fantasy owners as that guy who had a few big games for Oakland in 2009 and 2010, came off the bench to dominate the fourth quarter in Evans' absence. He finished the game with a team-high 11 targets, only three coming before Evans departure.

Of Murphy's six catches for 99 yards -- both also team highs -- five for 92 yards came in the fourth quarter, including a 31-yarder to set up a field goal and a 41-yarder to set up the go-ahead touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson with only seconds to go.

Because Murphy was just an injury sub for a player starting opposite Jackson on an offense with an unproven quarterback, he won't be the most attractive waiver claim, but provided Evans is out for Week 5, he could be useful if you get in a pinch.

Louis Murphy the surprise of the game in Week 4 win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers picked up wideout Louis Murphy off the scrap heap this week - and he proceded to pick them up Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Murphy didn't just record team-highs with six catches for 99 yards. He got open on the most critical play of the game and raced 41 yards to the Steelers 5-yard-line to set up the winning touchdown with seven seconds remaining.

He began to produce early in the fourth quarter with a 31-yard reception on a post pattern and continued to roll. His lone goof was a drop off a fluttering pass in the back of the end zone, for which he later made up.

Murphy will try to keep up the good work at New Orleans in Week 5.

Back injury to keep Louis Murphy out for Week 1
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers ruled out just one player on the offensive side of the ball for Week 1 against the Panthers, as wide receiver Louis Murphy will not suit up due to a back injury. He was held out of practice throughout the week as a result of the injury, suffered during the final game of the preseason.
