Cowboys | DeMarco Murray getting support from QB

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 15:29:30 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is getting support from QB Tony Romo to stay with the team long term. Romo said he is consistently talking to owner Jerry Jones about bringing him back in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Murray may be the odd man out if the team chooses to re-sign or franchise tag Dez Bryant this offseason. If Murray does indeed land somewhere else, his fantasy value could dip running behind a different offensive line.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray more than a rusher

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 18:22:23 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray was in pass protection on 52 more plays than any other running back on the roster in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to being the league's leading rusher, Murray was the team's most trusted back in pass protection. If he leaves as a free agent this offseason, the Cowboys, especially Tony Romo, could miss more than his running ability.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray could be cap casualty

Thu, 15 Jan 2015 19:15:15 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray will be tough sign to a long-term extension if WR Dez Bryant is also signed, team owner Jerry Jones said Thursday, Jan. 15. Jones called the prospect of signing both players "possible" but not "financially reasonable."

Fantasy Tip: Jones has already indicated that the team will use the franchise tag on Bryant if need be, which means Murray could be the odd man out if he isn't willing to take a little less to stay with Dallas. If Murray does land elsewhere, his fantasy value could dip a little without Dallas' stout offensive line paving the way.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray, team disagree on value

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 18:16:27 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys and impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray and disagree on his value. The team offered him a four-year deal worth slightly more than $16 million. He might test the open market, or the team could slap him with the franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Murray's long-term fantasy outlook is a bit murky. If he stays in Dallas, he has company in the backfield with Joseph Randle, but he would likely still be the top dog. Although, it is unlikely he'll see 497 touches again. However, if he tests the free agent waters and lands with another club, there are no guarantees he'll be the top tailback with little or no competition.

Cowboys | Franchise tag for DeMarco Murray?

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 09:11:13 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray, who will be a free agent this March, could receive a franchise or transition tag from the team if they reach a multi-year deal with WR Dez Bryant first. "I'm not worried about my future," Murray said. "I just lost a big game, the biggest game of my life. Just not worried about it right now. Just relax with my family and get away from it for a little bit."

Fantasy Tip: Murray was one of the biggest, if not the top, fantasy football players for the 2014 season. Heading into next year's drafts, Murray will likely be a top two or three pick in most fantasy drafts. However, you'll need to factor in his injury risk if you're prepared to take him with one of the top overall picks in your league.

Sun, 11 Jan 2015 13:53:06 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray had 25 carries for a game-high 125 yards and a score in a 26-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Murray capped an impressive season with another 100-yard game. He was easily one of the most reliable fantasy options at any position this year, and he enters next season as a strong RB1 in any format.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray listed as probable

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 12:27:59 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 9, and is listed as probable for the Divisional Round playoff game.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has been able to score at least one touchdown in each of his last six games and has also started to be more involved in the passing game after suffering his hand injury. Murray is the most expensive running back on FantasyScore at $8,100 and could be a solid starting option for owners.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray not hampered by injury

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 15:37:39 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) has averaged 20 carries and 78 yards per game since breaking his hand Dec. 14 after averaging 25 carries and 121 yards per game in the first 14 contests of the season. Head coach Jason Garrett said any drop in carries for Murray isn't related to his hand, and the running back has proven that the injury hasn't hampered him. Murray's hand has felt good, and he won't change the hard plastic shell he's been using for extra protection this weekend against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his reduced numbers in the last few games, Murray ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) remains the fourth most expensive player at FantasyScore this weekend. His lack of outstanding production recently shouldn't be a reason to turn away from him in your daily lineups against the Packers, though.
