Cowboys | DeMarco Murray prefers Dallas

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 10:32:38 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray would likely re-sign with the Cowboys if the offer they make him is equal or similar financially to offers he receives from other teams in free agency, according to league sources. Murray is expecting to have a "vigorous" free-agent market for his services. He made $1.4 million last year, which ranked 23rd among running backs, and he led the league with 1,845 rushing yards on 392 carries in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Murray had an excellent 2014 season for his fantasy owners. Dallas had one of the top offensive lines in the league to help pave running lanes for him, too, so we can see why he'd favor remaining in Dallas. Regardless of where Murray lands this year, he's likely to remain an RB1 worth drafting in the first round, despite injury concerns.

Seahawks | DeMarco Murray an option for Seattle?

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 17:27:52 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray could be targeted by the Seattle Seahawks in free agency this offseason. Seattle could be in the market for a reliable running back if RB Marshawn Lynch opts to retire.

Fantasy Tip: Murray in Seattle is a scary possibility, but it remains an unlikely reality with Lynch expected to return in 2015. If this scenario does play out, though, Murray should once again be a top-tier RB1 worthy of drafting in the first round.

Jaguars | DeMarco Murray could land in Jacksonville

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 17:24:53 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray could be targeted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency this offseason. RB Toby Gerhart will fill a multitude or roles in 2015, and RB Denard Robinson is more suited for a complementary role in the backfield. The Jags have the most salary cap room in the NFL this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: A move to Jacksonville would probably be the least exciting place Murray could land in terms of fantasy value in 2015. Without a proven quarterback and shaky receiving options, opposing defenses would likely stack the box against Murray. He'd probably be more of a weak RB1, and he'll continue to carry an element of risk due to injuries.

Cardinals | Arizona an option for DeMarco Murray

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 17:22:08 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray could be targeted by the Arizona Cardinals in free agency this offseason. The Cardinals learned the hard way last year that RB Andre Ellington isn't the workhorse back they were hoping he'd be.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona would be an interesting landing spot for Murray. The Cardinals are a team in win-now mode, and he'd be an excellent addition to this offense. Murray will continue to be an RB1 with some injury risk wherever he lands in free agency.

Colts | Indy a suitor for DeMarco Murray?

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 17:20:39 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray could be targeted by the Indianapolis Colts in free agency this offseason. General manager Ryan Grigson has $40 million to spend, and the Colts are in need of a running back after the failures of RB Trent Richardson.

Fantasy Tip: After what Murray did for the Cowboys in 2014, you better believe he'll be a highly sought after commodity in free agency if he doesn't re-sign with Dallas. A move to Indy wouldn't change his value all that much, as he'd become their primary running back. Murray carries injury risk as an RB1, however.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to hit FA market

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 11:33:19 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray probably will hit the free-agent market since contract talks with him have gone slow, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. Jones said he believes Murray could re-sign even if he makes it to free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Murray probably will have several teams interested in him if he is available in free agency, but his fantasy value will depend on which team he signs with this offseason. He probably will still be a starting running back on fantasy teams no matter which team he joins.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to give Dallas last word?

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 17:54:45 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray could give the team a chance to match any offer he receives during free agency, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. "There is an expectation that he will get back to us before he signs with another club," Jones said. "There's a hope that he would. But that would be unfair to him and for other clubs to say he's going to bring something back."

Fantasy Tip: Murray's value in 2015 will depend on where he ends up signing. A return to Dallas would be an ideal scenario from a fantasy standpoint as he would once again be the workhorse back behind the team's talented offensive line.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray may have lighter workload

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 04:41:40 -0800

Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Cowboys) may have a lighter workload if he is re-signed by the Dallas Cowboys for 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Murray carried the ball 392 times in 2014 so it is understandable the team would want to lighten his load, but this may be a case of easier said than done. Joseph Randle has faced legal troubles and Lance Dunbar is a free agent, so the team may not have a choice. As long as he stays healthy like this, Murray is a strong RB1 in all fantasy leagues.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray irreplaceable?

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 14:17:41 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray may be on his way out of Dallas if WR Dez Bryant is given the franchise tag. Head coach Jason Garrett said he doesn't like the idea of Murray simply being replaced by another running back, emphasizing Murray's importance to the Cowboys' offense. Both parties have three weeks to work something out before Murray can test the free-agent market.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was undoubtedly the best running back in 2014, both in fantasy football and real football. Obviously, we don't know exactly where his value is right now as he could be on a different team heading into next season. Keep tabs on his situation throughout the upcoming weeks.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray's rep. to meet with VP

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 11:19:01 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray's representative will meet with executive vice president Stephen Jones this week, possibly indicating that a long-term deal could be in the works. Jones also said the team could use the franchise tag on Murray.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was the best running back in real football and fake football in 2014, and it wasn't even close. He could obviously be on a different team next season, but if he stays he'll still be running behind one of the best offensive lines in football and will remain an RB1 heading into next season's drafts.
