Bills' Marcus Murphy: Busy in backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy rushed 14 times for 69 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 41-10 win over the Jets.

Murphy benefited from a perfect storm of opportunity, as Chris Ivory's shoulder injury cleared out the backup running back role, and game script called for plenty of rushing attempts with Buffalo sitting on a big lead. LeSean McCoy rushed 26 times, so Murphy was the clear-cut No. 2 despite his volume. He may not get another workload as large as this one the rest of the way after the Week 11 bye.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Set for key backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is one of only two active running backs for the Bills Sunday against the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills are a bit short-handed at the position with Chris Ivory listed as inactive due to a shoulder issue, leaving Murphy as the only healthy back behind starter LeSean McCoy. Murphy did see a season-high 24 offensive snaps last week against Chicago, but carried the ball just once for six yards in the blowout loss. There's a slight amount of pass-catching upside with Murphy having recorded eight receptions in the last three weeks, but it likely isn't enough to warrant serious consideration outside of deeper formats. Murphy would seemingly need an injury or other significant event to happen to LeSean McCoy, or a blowout on either side, in order to gain fantasy relevance.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Sees field, weak production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy rushed one time for six yards and caught three passes for minus-7 yards during Sunday's loss to the Bears.

As usual, no one could get anything going offensively for the hapless Bills, and trying to get things kickstarted -- following a series of lousy games -- against the formidable Bears defense (even without Khalil Mack) proved too tough a task. Murphy did see a season-high 24 snaps in the loss, playing time that could continue if Chris Ivory (shoulder) has to miss any action. Such a scenario would put Murphy into the No. 2 spot behind LeSean McCoy, who was held to 10 rushing yards on 10 carries Sunday.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Helps fill in for McCoy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy logged four carries for 53 yards and added five catches (on six targets) for 17 yards in Sunday's 37-5 loss to the Colts.

Murphy's profile in the Buffalo offense expanded Sunday after LeSean McCoy exited the game with a concussion. Once that occurred, Chris Ivory served as the team's lead back, with Murphy working in a change-of-pace role. After the game, it was reported that Ivory is dealing with an unspecified injury, which he downplayed. Considering that, as well as McCoy being in the NFL's concussion protocol, Murphy is a player to track as next Monday's game against the Patriots approaches.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Added work on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is in line for added touches Sunday against the Colts, with LeSean McCoy being evaluated for a head injury.

With McCoy ailing and iffy to return to Sunday's contest, the Bills' Week 7 backfield duties will now be handled by Chris Ivory and Murphy.
