Keith Toston, not Richard Murphy, to start at RB for Jaguars: Fantasy implications

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Keith Toston will start for the Jaguars ahead of Richard Murphy in place of the injured Montell Owens on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Keith Toston, not Richard Murphy, will start at running for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in place of the injured Montell Owens, the Jags announced Sunday via Twitter. Owens was marked inactive before Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans when his knee acted up in pre-game warm-ups.

Murphy is the only other Jaguars running back to see touches in the last three weeks. He had a combined 20 carries for 68 yards in games against the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. Toston, meanwhile, has yet to record a carry this season. He was signed by the Jaguars earlier this month.

Fantasy Impact: Murphy is still expected to play a role, however, making this a poisonous situation for fantasy owners. Neither running back has done anything this season to suggest that they are worth a spot in your starting lineup. The fact that this is a potential timeshare means that you should try to find production elsewhere, despite a good defensive matchup.
