Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has officially been ruled out for the Week 15 matchup against the Detroit Lions. This will pave the way for little-known backfield-mate Marcus Murphy to become a fantasy-relevant option today.

Murphy has posted some decent numbers this season, despite not finding the end zone just yet. He has, however, posted 5.2 yards per carry and did have a 14-carry game for 69 rushing yards against the New York Jets back in Week 10. 

It's not like Murphy is the safest fantasy option, but if you're desperate for a running back this is definitely the guy to add. 

Detroit is allowing the 10th-most  FanDuel fantasy points per game (24.0) and Buffalo will likely run the ball a ton -- they have the sixth most attempts this season and fifth-most over the last three games.
