Cowboys | DeMarco Murray could get new deal

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 10:20:17 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray could sign a contract extension during the season if he and the team could agree to terms. No extension is imminent at this time.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has been one of the top running backs in the league this season and should continue to get his work. Murray is the most expensive running back on FantasyScore this week at $7,900, but should be a fine option for owners willing to pay that price.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray avoiding contact

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 11:47:47 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray has rushed for 327 yards before contact this year.

Fantasy Tip: While Murray is having a huge year, that stat also shows just how good the offensive line has been for the Cowboys in the early part of the season.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray with heavy workload

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 06:22:37 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray has 108 touches through four games. The team may try to taper his usage back in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is arguably the most valuable fantasy player right now. His $7,900 price tag (15.8% of your cap) on FantasyScore is cumbersome. You have to wonder how much you can profit at that price, but he's a must-start in all leagues.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray looking to protect ball

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 15:03:35 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray will return to the ball-carrying style he used in his first three seasons with the team when he lost just three fumbles. Murray has already fumbled twice in the first two games of this season while carrying the ball with his left hand. "You definitely make more plays when the ball is in your outside hand," Murray said, "(but) just got to be smart about it and see what happens. Can't overthink it, so I'm not worried about it." Murray rushed a career-high 29 times against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2, and his 51 carries are the most in a two-game span in his career.

Fantasy Tip: One has to wonder if this will limit his big-play ability, but it's really nothing that should affect his fantasy value. Murray is the most expensive running back at FantasyScore this week ($8,600), making a return on investment tough to come by against the St. Louis Rams.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray contract looming?

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:26:40 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray may be in talks with the team about a new contract in the near future. Chief operating officer Stephen Jones said the team wouldn't be against giving Murray a new contract and that they desire to keep him in Dallas long-term, adding that Murray has increased that desire with his play so far this season.

Fantasy Tip: So far, Murray has proven that last season was not a fluke. He's a legitimate RB1 through the rest of the season and is probably worth any price on FantasyScore.

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:47:33 -0700

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray not focused on stats

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:55:46 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray said he is only focused on getting better, and not on his stats. "Well, I'm focused on getting better right now," Murray said. "I'm not worried about individual accolades. I'm trying to get better every day and help this team out. Once the preseason is over I'll sit down and talk about it with myself team goal as well as individual."

Fantasy Tip: The main concern with Murray is health, but he is a solid RB1 in all formats heading into the 2014 season.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to lead committee?

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 11:06:46 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is expected to receive most of the carries this season, but other running backs could also receive some snaps as part of a committee at running back, according to Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is entering the season as the starter but does come with an injury risk. He has never played 16 games in any of his three seasons with the Cowboys. Murray probably will be a starter in most fantasy leagues, but owners should have other strong running backs on their roster in case he suffers an injury during the season.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray looking strong

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 16:22:32 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray looks ready for another 1,000-yard season, as he has been strong and decisive in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is one of the few running backs in the NFL these days that isn't in some sort of timeshare in the backfield. He's an all-purpose back that is a definite RB1 when he can stay on the field.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray, Jason Witten expected to sit

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 09:13:08 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray and TE Jason Witten are not expected to play in the first preseason game, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player needs to play in the first preseason game but should receive playing time at some point during the preseason. Both players should be considered starters at their positions in most fantasy leagues.
