Cowboys | DeMarco Murray was limited Thursday

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:40:41 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200) seems primed to play against the Indianapolis Colts. He could have his touches limited a bit, but if he's in the starting lineup, he should be a good target at FantasyScore against a Colts squad that has been hurt by bruising rushers like Murray most of the year.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray not at further risk

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 11:34:19 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand), who was expected to take some team snaps in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, is in no more risk if he plays in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts than if he sits out this week, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Murray had a plate and screws put into his broken left hand to stabilize the fourth metacarpal. He's been wearing a hard plastic shell on top of his glove for more protection.

Fantasy Tip: As of now, all signs are pointing to Murray ($8,200) playing against the Colts. If he's playing, he should be in all standard league lineups and is a good source of points at FantasyScore.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray officially doesn't practice

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:52:58 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) did not officially take part in the team's practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200) took part in individual drills during practice, and the team is still gauging if he can play in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts. If he plays, he could be limited. Both Joseph Randle ($5,900) and Lance Dunbar ($3,000) are nice fall-back options at FantasyScore.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray works with first-team

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:18:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) wasn't expected to do a lot at practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, but he took first-team snaps at running back while wearing a pad on top of his left hand. Head coach Jason Garrett said the team wanted to see him work in practice to make sure he could carry the ball under duress. "You start with a plan and a vision for what you need to have there and then you just go through feedback, with DeMarco and the training staff, you try to get it to the point where it's functional and comfortable for him to go play," Garrett said of the added protection. "It's an evolution. They'll talk back and forth as the week goes on hopefully get something he's comfortable with."

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200) has yet to be ruled out for Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts, which is a good matchup for running backs. He's a mighty risky play at FantasyScore, but the fact that he's practicing early in the week is a good sign that he'll suit up. If you go with Murray in your daily lineups, keep Joseph Randle ($5,900) and Lance Dunbar ($3,000) handy in case he doesn't play.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray on the field

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 09:27:35 -0800

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray in good spirits

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 16:08:28 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand), who had his left hand heavily wrapped past his wrist Tuesday, Dec. 16, said he didn't have any pain after his surgery. "I'm good," Murray said. "I'm great." The team remains optimistic that Murray can play in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts, but they won't know until later in the week. Murray will wear a protective glove on his left hand with extra padding on top regardless of if he plays Sunday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200) could easily be a game-time decision, making him an extremely risky FantasyScore option against the Indianapolis Colts. the team is confident in Joseph Randle ($5,900) and Lance Dunbar ($3,000) if they have to step up and carry the load. Dunbar has a much better chance at returning value in PPR leagues like FantasyScore if Murray doesn't play.
