Big game doesn't change Louis Murphy's outlook
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With the Buccaneers playing from behind and forced to throw the ball 48 times, wide receiver Louis Murphy put together the best game of his season in Week 12.

Murphy was third on the team in targeted with eight, and he hauled in six of those passes for 113 yards, his first 100-yard game of the season. In fact, the performance bested his yardage total from the previous five games combined, as he had failed to record more than 20 yards in any of the last four.

Murphy has a couple of big games under his belt this season, but has mostly been a nonfactor behind Vincent Jackson and rookie Mike Evans. He would need to string together a few more games like this for Fantasy owners to consider picking him up for the stretch run.

Louis Murphy comes up big for Buccaneers
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers wideout Louis Murphy came up big Week 12 against the Bears.

Murphy hauled in six passes for 113 yards during the contest. His biggest play came on his first catch of the day. In the second quarter, Murphy pulled down a 54 yard reception from Josh McCown. The team would later kick a field goal to finish the drive. Murphy had just one more catch that went for over 20 yards during the game. 

Murphy will look for more Week 13 against the Bengals.

Three Buccaneers make minor contributions Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A few Buccaneers chipped in to the offensive effort Sunday in a loss to Cleveland. Among them was running back Mike James, who managed nine yards on four carries.

Also contributing was wideout Louis Murphy with two catches for 13 yards and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins with one reception for three yards.

Buccaneers get offensive contributions Week 8
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers didn't do much offensively Week 8 against the Vikings, but several role players still made contributions. Wideout Louis Murphy caught both his targets for 11 yards, and tight end Brandon Myers had a 3-yard reception.

Running back Mike James carried once for 1 yard. They'll all visit the Browns in Week 9.

Buccaneers receiving corps becoming diverse
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

It may have been an aberration resulting from quarterback Matt Glennon throwing for a season-high 314 yards with his team in catchup mode from the outset, but the Buccaneers managed to sustain three wide receivers Week 6 against Baltimore. Vincent Jackson, the star of the group, led the team with 13 targets but was characteristically inefficient with them, catching four passes for 66 yards, and rookie Mike Evans returned from injury to catch four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown.

But the big surprise was Louis Murphy. Expected to shrink into a peripheral role with Evans back in the lineup, he led the way with seven catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. His nine targets were the second-most on the team.

The 1-5 Buccaneers figure to be playing from behind a lot, so Murphy, who clicked with Glennon immediately when he joined the team in Week 4, might just be able to stay relevant in Fantasy. Jamey Eisenberg doesn't rank him especially high in his Playing the Waiver Wire column this week, but at least he's ranked.

Of course, the presence of Murphy could diminish the value of Jackson and Evans to Fantasy owners. Jackson remains a must-start for now, but Evans is strictly a matchups type until we get some clarity here.
