Cowboys | Lance Dunbar healthy, set for third-down duty

Sat, 12 Jul 2014 20:34:52 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) hasn't missed a snap this offseason and should fill the third-down back role for the team this year, according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. Archer also believes that Dunbar would likely remain the third-down back even if something happens to RB DeMarco Murray with either RB Joseph Randle or RB Ryan Williams taking over as the every-down back, depending on which player wins the job as the team's third back.

Fantasy Tip: Dunbar's involvement in the passing game could make him worth a flier in PPR leagues this year. However, his value is going to be capped if he is limited to mainly passing downs.

Cowboys | Lance Dunbar fully recovered, eyes expanded role

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 17:36:34 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) said he feels 100 percent after missing the end of last season with a knee injury, and running backs coach Gary Brown plans to use the healthy Dunbar in variety of ways this season. "Well, he's a guy that's going to be a complete weapon," Brown said. "We can line him up anywhere on the team-tailback spot, at the wide receiver spot, in the slot. He has tremendous hands and he's just not a specialty guy."

Fantasy Tip: DeMarco Murray is the No. 1 guy in Dallas, but if he were to miss any time, Dunbar is a name to keep in mind. In the meantime, he could have some value in PPR leagues if the Cowboys decide to take advantage of his receiving skills.

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.
