Cowboys | DeMarco Murray's workload to decrease?

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 14:38:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is likely to have his workload lessened by head coach Jason Garrett to preserve him for the long season. Murray is currently on pace to tie Larry Johnson's single-season record for carries with 416. Murray has run the ball 130 times for 670 yards in the team's first five games of the season. He carried a career-high 31 times for 136 yards in Week 5. Murray has had at least 22 carries in the five games, which is the most he's had in any five-game span in his career.

"DeMarco was out there and we think that's probably too many carries in the game, week in and week out," Garrett said. "He ended up with 31 so we'd like to get that number lower. We'd really just like to get the other guys an opportunity. I don't see any wear and tear in DeMarco but having said that, we want to make sure we create a rotation and we'll focus on doing that in the next few weeks." Murray has never had more than 217 carries in a season. RBs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar have combined for 22 carries and 88 yards.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't discourage you from using Murray in your daily lineups at FantasyScore. He has been the most productive back in fantasy football, and that shouldn't change drastically with fewer touches.

Cowboys | Bigger role for Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar?

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 18:56:40 -0700

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday, Oct. 3, that RB Joseph Randle can be effective, and he could be in line for a few more snaps going forward. "The biggest threat to (RB DeMarco Murray's) stats is Joseph Randle," Jones said. "Frankly, I don't want to leave (RB Lance Dunbar) out of this equation, either. If we can, it would be good to have Dunbar with a few more touches. But make no mistake about it, Joseph Randle can be effective out there, too. Should we? We probably should have at least Randle get a few more snaps."

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.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray questionable

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 12:56:42 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions, but the team is optimistic that he will play after he went through a third straight day of limited practice Friday, Oct. 25. Murray missed Week 7 with a sprained knee. "He's got a real shot," executive vice president Stephen Jones said of Murray. "Wouldn't say for sure. I think it's still questionable but we'll kind of see how he feels after today's practice and we'll see how it feels on Sunday and we'll make a decision …. We want to do right for DeMarco for the season not just one game." RB Joseph Randle would start again if Murray isn't able to suit up. RB Lance Dunbar (hamstring) will also be back in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Basically, Murray will be a game-time decision this weekend. Check back Sunday morning to find out if he's playing. If he's in there, he should probably be in your starting lineup, depending on your other options.
