Cowboys | DeMarco Murray's role to expand

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 18:21:03 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys plan to ride RB DeMarco Murray as much as they can after losing RB Lance Dunbar (knee). "DeMarco Murray is our lead back, has been our lead back all year long, has done an excellent job for us, did a really good job in the game the other day again," head coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday, Dec. 3. "He'll be the lead dog. The other guys, (RBs Joseph Randle and Phillip Tanner) will have to step up if they have an opportunity if DeMarco can't go."

Fantasy Tip: If you're a Murray fantasy owner, this is music to your ears. Randle and Tanner are not real threats to push their way into a timeshare with Murray, so he will see a bulk of the carries in a league where in this day and age teams are using a two-back system. Over his past three games, Murray has 238 rushing yards and four touchdowns, and he has eight receptions for 79 yards over his past two outings.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to miss at least one week

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 11:12:41 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) will miss the team's Week 7 game but may be able to play Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: With Murray out, Joseph Randle likely will see most of the carries with Phillip Tanner also receiving some playing time. Randle should be considered a flex option while Murray is out. Tanner likely will be just a bench option at this point.
