Cowboys | DeMarco Murray eager to work in one-back sets

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is excited about the possible renewed commitment to the running back, and he is eager to play out of the one-back alignment with a chance to run more and maximize his potential. When he gets the ball this year, it is expected to be in a one-back, two-tight end alignment since the team no longer has a fullback on the roster. "It's something I'm looking forward to," Murray said Sunday, July 21. "When you get guys spread out, its going to be hard for them to have seven or eight guys in the (box) so its going to open a lot of running lanes."

Fantasy Tip: Murray has always been a tremendous talent, but staying healthy has been what has held him back from becoming a fantasy superstar. He is the bona fide No. 1 in Dallas with no one of note pushing him, so he'll see a lion's share of the carries, and is therefore a tremendous late first-round pick on draft day. Just be sure to have plenty of depth due to his injury history.
