Fantasy Tip: Romo has thrown at least three touchdowns in four of his last five games. Romo is facing a solid Indianapolis Colts pass defense but could be an attractive option on FantasyScore at $7,300.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Murray will play in Week 16, but owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineups. Murray may be limited by his hand during the game and is a very risky option to use on FantasyScore at $8,200.

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) is likely to play in Week 16, according to a source. Murray has a high threshold for pain, and according to the source, the team left the decision up to Murray.
Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200; 16.4% of your cap) is a very risky play on FantasyScore this week. At his price point, we'd lean toward better options in case his workload is reduced.

Fantasy Tip: Romo ($7,300) bounced back nicely last week and faces an Indianapolis Colts team that is around the middle of the pack this year in terms of fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. You could do worse than Romo as your FantasyScore starting QB.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200) seems primed to play against the Indianapolis Colts. He could have his touches limited a bit, but if he's in the starting lineup, he should be a good target at FantasyScore against a Colts squad that has been hurt by bruising rushers like Murray most of the year.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand), who was expected to take some team snaps in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, is in no more risk if he plays in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts than if he sits out this week, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Murray had a plate and screws put into his broken left hand to stabilize the fourth metacarpal. He's been wearing a hard plastic shell on top of his glove for more protection.
Fantasy Tip: As of now, all signs are pointing to Murray ($8,200) playing against the Colts. If he's playing, he should be in all standard league lineups and is a good source of points at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Murray's status for Week 16 is still in question at this time, but it looks like he has a chance to play. Murray costs $8,200 on FantasyScore but is a risky option, because he could be limited by the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200) took part in individual drills during practice, and the team is still gauging if he can play in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts. If he plays, he could be limited. Both Joseph Randle ($5,900) and Lance Dunbar ($3,000) are nice fall-back options at FantasyScore.

Dallas Cowboys DT Joshua Brent (calf, personal), OT Doug Free (ankle), OG Zack Martin (ankle), LB Rolando McClain (knee) and LB Dekoda Watson (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 17. SS Jeff Heath (thumb), CB Tyler Patmon (knee, ankle) and DE George Selvie (thumb) practiced in full.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) wasn't expected to do a lot at practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, but he took first-team snaps at running back while wearing a pad on top of his left hand. Head coach Jason Garrett said the team wanted to see him work in practice to make sure he could carry the ball under duress. "You start with a plan and a vision for what you need to have there and then you just go through feedback, with DeMarco and the training staff, you try to get it to the point where it's functional and comfortable for him to go play," Garrett said of the added protection. "It's an evolution. They'll talk back and forth as the week goes on hopefully get something he's comfortable with."
Fantasy Tip: Murray ($8,200) has yet to be ruled out for Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts, which is a good matchup for running backs. He's a mighty risky play at FantasyScore, but the fact that he's practicing early in the week is a good sign that he'll suit up. If you go with Murray in your daily lineups, keep Joseph Randle ($5,900) and Lance Dunbar ($3,000) handy in case he doesn't play.
