Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to be game-time decision?

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 14:42:03 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) will likely be a game-time decision against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said the team is still evaluating Murray's status for this weekend. "I think we just want to take a look at it. We don't know," Jones said. "I'm not so sure, when they say the definition of healing, how much can heal between now and Sunday." RBs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will prepare for increased workloads if Murray can't play, and RB Ryan Williams could be activated off the practice squad.

Fantasy Tip: With Dallas playing an afternoon game Sunday, that makes Murray ($8,200) even more risky at FantasyScore in Week 16. Randle ($5,900) and Dunbar ($3,000) are both more than acceptable plays against a weak Colts run D if Murray sits out. Dunbar is probably the better value play at FantasyScore, though, since it's a PPR league.

Cowboys | Ryan Williams appears to be a longshot

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:52:56 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams looks to be a longshot for the final roster, because he is not a good special teams player and would have to help on special teams if he is in a reserve role.

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 | Three RBs battling for spot

Mon, 26 May 2014 20:57:47 -0700

The decision to carry three running backs and a fullback is not expected to be decided until the second or third preseason game. If the team elects not to carry a fullback, it might make it easier for RBs Ben Malena, Joseph Randle or Ryan Williams to make the roster.

Cowboys | Ryan Williams signed

Sat, 17 May 2014 23:54:46 -0700

Updating a previous item, the Dallas Cowboys have signed RB Ryan Williams. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Preliminary indications are Williams will serve as a backup to DeMarco Murray, so if he makes the team out of training camp it may not be a bad idea to draft Williams as a "handcuff" pick in case Murray gets injured.
