2020 Fantasy Outlook
Murphy-Bunting saw action in all 16 games as a rookie last season, with the November release of Vernon Hargreaves opening even more opportunity. The Central Michigan product unsurprisingly had his share of trials and tribulations in coverage as a first-year cornerback, but he ultimately led the team with three interceptions, including a 70-yard pick-six, and had eight pass breakups overall. Given his solid play last season, especially during its latter portion, Murphy-Bunting should project as the starting right cornerback heading into training camp and hold onto the job with a solid preseason.

Racks up tackles in loss
CBTampa Bay Buccaneers
October 10, 2020
Murphy-Bunting posted seven tackles (six solo) in the Buccaneers' 20-19 loss to the Bears on Thursday night.
ANALYSIS
The second-year cornerback tied Carlton Davis for the team lead in tackles on his way to a season-high figure in that category. Murphy-Bunting has yet to record an interception after notching three during his rookie 2019 campaign, as he's struggled early on in coverage by allowing an 80.0 percent completion rate and a pair of touchdowns on the 10 passes in which he's been the primary defender.

No matter whether he runs more from the slot or out wide, it's difficult to see what the Raiders corners can do to slow down D.J. Moore.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
A surprise second-round pick in the eyes of some, the Buccaneers are high on Murphy-Bunting after a strong career at Central Michigan. One of the more impressive aspects of the corner's college resume is his nine interceptions, 15 defensed passes and four forced fumbles, which exemplify his knack for disrupting offenses. Murphy-Bunting brings solid size at 6-1, 195, a frame he complements with 4.4 speed. There's already talk of Murphy-Bunting potentially carving out a role in the slot during his rookie season if he can prove worthy of it this summer. Furthermore, if either of the projected starting cornerback duo of Carlton Davis and Vernon Hargreaves falters, Murphy-Bunting could potentially see even more opportunity during his first pro campaign.
