10. DeMarco Murray (PHI-RB)
Believe it or not, Murray is the first overall pick in a lot of fantasy leagues this year. Yes, he finished as the No.1 running back last season, but after leaving Dallas, Murray will definitely miss running behind the Cowboys’ offensive line.
Murray enters Chip Kelly’s offense this year which will give Murray a solid number of carries this season. That doesn’t mean he’s getting the close to 500 touches he did in Dallas last season. Plus, he is in the same group of running backs as Ryan Matthews and Darren Sproles who will both cut into the number of carries Murray will receive.
Behind a weaker offensive line, and alongside other talented backs, expect DeMarco Murray to take a significant step backwards this season.
9. Emmanuel Sanders (WR-DEN)
With the emergence of CJ Anderson, the departure of Julius Thomas, and the arrival of run-heavy coach Gary Kubiak, all signs point to a run heavy offense in Denver this season.
Following a year where Sanders received a career high 141 targets, a lot of fantasy owners are looking at Sanders as a top 20 receiver. That’s not the case this season in Kubiak’s new offense that should take away at least 10-30 targets from Sanders’s career high.
