Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 8: DeMarco Murray a must-start vs. Jaguars

DeMarco Murray has been a fantasy stud this season, and that should continue vs. the Jaguars.

The rebirth of DeMarco Murray has been one of the biggest stories in fantasy football this season.

After being lost in the shuffle with the Philadelphia Eagles last year, Murray was traded to the Tennessee Titans this offseason, where he is having a career resurgence. In seven games, Murray has rushed for 633 yards on 139 carries (4.6 avg.) with five touchdowns. He’s added 27 catches for 192 yards and two scores.

Murray has either topped 100 all-purpose yards or scored in all seven games this season, making him arguably the most efficient back in fantasy football. He has also gotten back to must-start status every week going forward.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Murray as the fourth-best running back in Week 8. He faces a Jacksonville Jaguars team allowing the 14th-fewest points to running backs this season.

There is no question you will start Murray in all leagues this week.
