Bucs WR Louis Murphy tore his ACL in Sunday's loss to the Redskins, according to insider Rick Stroud.  Tampa's #3 WR caught just 10 balls for 198 scoreless yards in 6 games.  Rookie Donteea Dye, who caught a TD yesterday, will step into Murphy's spot.

The Star-Ledger reports that the Giants will sign former Panthers WR Louis Murphy. The soon-to-be 26-year-old caught just 25 passes for 336 yards and a TD with the Panthers last year after 3 seasons in Oakland. Murphy is merely a depth signing with no fantasy relevance unless someone in front of him gets hurt. (Of course, that's always a good possibility when Hakeem Nicks is involved.) Murphy's arrival also likely signals that the Giants don't expect to retain Ramses Barden or Domenik Hixon. Both are free agents.

Yahoo's Jason Cole reports that the Raiders have traded WR Louis Murphy to the Panthers.  No word yet on what's heading back to Oakland.  The news at least raises some eyebrows around the DS office.  Murphy was banged-up last year and tumbled down the Raiders' depth chart.  He finished with just 241 scoreless yards on 15 catches.  There's talent here though.  Murphy racked up 1,130 yards and 6 scores in his first 2 pro campaigns, and he's averaging a healthy 15.2 yards per catch for his career.  That downfield speed makes him a good fit in Panthers OC Rob Chudzinski's vertical attack.  Steve Smith is locked-in as Carolina's #1 WR, but we don't consider Brandon LaFell a sure-thing for the #2 spot.  Murphy -- along with WR David Gettis -- are capable of pushing for playing time.

Raiders WR Louis Murphy (groin) is active for today's game against the Browns.  It'll be his season debut.  Murphy is buried on the depth chart for now and isn't a fantasy option.

Raiders WR Louis Murphy (groin) put in a full week of practice and is expected to make his 2011 debut on Sunday against the Browns. Oakland's WR corps is deep, with Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey starting, and Jacoby Ford serving as the #3.  That leaves Murphy to battle with Chaz Schilens for the #4 spot.  He's worth monitoring but isn't a fantasy option.
