Cowboys | Want more balanced attack

The Dallas Cowboys ran 51 pass plays and just 21 running plays despite never trailing in the Week 1 game against the New York Giants. Head coach Jason Garrett said the team would like to be more balanced going forward, which might be even better news for RB DeMarco Murray. He still posted 86 yards on 20 carries, including five runs for 32 yards in the fourth quarter. "You want to be balanced, attack them downhill, attack them different ways and have it all work together," Garrett said.

Fantasy Tip: The Week 1 workload translated to 29 percent rushes, and 71 percent passes. Last season, the Cowboys ran the ball 34 percent of the time, posting the second-fewest rushing attempts in the league. More balance will help the fantasy appeal of Murray going forward.
