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

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) is participating in individual drills during practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Murray had hand surgery two days ago, but it appears he has a chance to play in Week 16. Owners should monitor the situation during the week to receive a better idea of his status. Murray could be limited if he is active for the game. Murray is a risky option on FantasyScore at $8,200 and may be too expensive for some owners because of the hand injury.

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.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to be game-time decision?

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 14:42:03 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) will likely be a game-time decision against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said the team is still evaluating Murray's status for this weekend. "I think we just want to take a look at it. We don't know," Jones said. "I'm not so sure, when they say the definition of healing, how much can heal between now and Sunday." RBs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will prepare for increased workloads if Murray can't play, and RB Ryan Williams could be activated off the practice squad.

Fantasy Tip: With Dallas playing an afternoon game Sunday, that makes Murray ($8,200) even more risky at FantasyScore in Week 16. Randle ($5,900) and Dunbar ($3,000) are both more than acceptable plays against a weak Colts run D if Murray sits out. Dunbar is probably the better value play at FantasyScore, though, since it's a PPR league.

Cowboys | Owner optimistic on DeMarco Murray

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 10:14:28 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) has a good chance to play in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts despite having surgery on a broken left hand, according to owner Jerry Jones. However, Jones thinks RBs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar can carry the load efficiently if Murray has to sit. Jones also added that Murray won't need to practice this week in order to play.

Fantasy Tip: As of right now, Murray's $8,200 FantasyScore salary seems much too risky against the Indianapolis Colts, who have been run on mostly all year. You'll need to keep track of Murray's status throughout the week, and the fact that they play an afternoon game makes him all the more risky. However, having either Randle ($5,900) or Dunbar ($3,000) to fall back on is nice.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray not risking further injury

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 06:15:19 -0800

Updating an earlier report, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) isn't risking further injury by playing in Week 16. The team believes he can play.

Fantasy Tip: If Murray plays, we don't see a full workload. Murray ($8,200; 16.4% of your cap) would likely lose touches to Joseph Randle ($5,900; 11.8%) could have some value on FantasyScore if he etches a significant role.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray with early optimism

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 05:51:18 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) could play in Week 16, in the opinion of beat writer Bryan Broaddus. At least, that is the team's early thinking.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200; 16.4% of your cap) is not a real good start on FantasyScore for Week 16. The matchup and the injury don't make it a worthwhile risk.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray facing uphill battle

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 14:23:55 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) is facing an uphill battle in terms of his availability for the team's Week 16 game, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. Jones said Murray should be able to play in Week 17 if he does not play Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see what Murray can do during practice this week in order to have a better idea of his status for Week 16. Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar could share the work at running back if Murray misses the game. Randle may receive a majority of the carries, which would make him valuable in standard leagues. Dunbar could be a sleeper in point-per-reception leagues, because he could be more involved in the passing league.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray has good chance to play?

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 14:08:20 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) has a good chance to play in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts after breaking a bone in his left hand, according to a team source. "Obviously, DeMarco Murray has a broken bone in his hand," owner Stephen Jones said. "At the same time, he hasn't been ruled out. It's not something that if it responds well after surgery today, that he can't come back and play this weekend. It's probably a tough expectation to think that he can, but we'll see."

Fantasy Tip: Murray will be a risky selection at FantasyScore this week, but you'll want to monitor his practice status this week to see if he has a shot at playing. The Indianapolis Colts have been a doormat for running backs this year, so if Murray doesn't play, both Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar could be nice plays at FantasyScore.
