Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to give Dallas last word?

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 17:54:45 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray could give the team a chance to match any offer he receives during free agency, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. "There is an expectation that he will get back to us before he signs with another club," Jones said. "There's a hope that he would. But that would be unfair to him and for other clubs to say he's going to bring something back."

Fantasy Tip: Murray's value in 2015 will depend on where he ends up signing. A return to Dallas would be an ideal scenario from a fantasy standpoint as he would once again be the workhorse back behind the team's talented offensive line.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray may have lighter workload

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 04:41:40 -0800

Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Cowboys) may have a lighter workload if he is re-signed by the Dallas Cowboys for 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Murray carried the ball 392 times in 2014 so it is understandable the team would want to lighten his load, but this may be a case of easier said than done. Joseph Randle has faced legal troubles and Lance Dunbar is a free agent, so the team may not have a choice. As long as he stays healthy like this, Murray is a strong RB1 in all fantasy leagues.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray irreplaceable?

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 14:17:41 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray may be on his way out of Dallas if WR Dez Bryant is given the franchise tag. Head coach Jason Garrett said he doesn't like the idea of Murray simply being replaced by another running back, emphasizing Murray's importance to the Cowboys' offense. Both parties have three weeks to work something out before Murray can test the free-agent market.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was undoubtedly the best running back in 2014, both in fantasy football and real football. Obviously, we don't know exactly where his value is right now as he could be on a different team heading into next season. Keep tabs on his situation throughout the upcoming weeks.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray's rep. to meet with VP

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 11:19:01 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray's representative will meet with executive vice president Stephen Jones this week, possibly indicating that a long-term deal could be in the works. Jones also said the team could use the franchise tag on Murray.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was the best running back in real football and fake football in 2014, and it wasn't even close. He could obviously be on a different team next season, but if he stays he'll still be running behind one of the best offensive lines in football and will remain an RB1 heading into next season's drafts.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray mum on contract talks

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 10:44:31 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray will not say if there are ongoing negotiations between his agent and the Cowboys. He has also said he would be involved in talks with the Cowboys and other teams if he is not signed by the March 10 deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Murray led the league in rushing yards last year. The chances of him repeating that feat is slim, so he should be considered a midrange RB1 in 2015.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray not tipping his hand

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 09:28:41 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray isn't tipping his hand to what he plans to do in free agency. "Obviously I think they want me here," Murray said. "I want to be here. It's just finding the ... just what helps them, what helps me. Things like that. I think both sides want to be here, so I think we'll see where it goes." Murray hasn't indicated if he's had ongoing negotiations with the Cowboys since the season ended. However, he hasn't distanced himself from the team since the end of the season, and he spent time with head coach Jason Garrett and QB Tony Romo last week.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be tricky for Dallas to retain both Murray and Dez Bryant. If Murray leaves for another team this offseason, there's a good chance he'll still be worthy of RB1 status for the upcoming fantasy football season.

Cowboys | Pokes to decide on DeMarco Murray

Sun, 08 Feb 2015 17:11:04 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys have a tough choice to make with impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray. If the team uses the franchise tag on impending free-agent WR Dez Bryant, they cannot use it on Murray. And if they are able to work out a long-term deal with Bryant by March 2, the team would still need to decide in a one-year, $10.93 guaranteed deal for Murray is a wise choice since they have some tough salary cap decisions to make.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is coming off a career year, which is perfect timing for him. However, in recent years many teams have elected to go to a tandem running back situation driving down the annual salary for runners. Murray will get paid, by the Cowboys or elsewhere. His fantasy outlook is murky right now because it is unclear exactly where he'll be playing his football in 2015. However, whatever uniform he dons, he will still be a top fantasy choice at his position.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray getting support from QB

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 15:29:30 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is getting support from QB Tony Romo to stay with the team long term. Romo said he is consistently talking to owner Jerry Jones about bringing him back in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Murray may be the odd man out if the team chooses to re-sign or franchise tag Dez Bryant this offseason. If Murray does indeed land somewhere else, his fantasy value could dip running behind a different offensive line.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray more than a rusher

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 18:22:23 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray was in pass protection on 52 more plays than any other running back on the roster in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to being the league's leading rusher, Murray was the team's most trusted back in pass protection. If he leaves as a free agent this offseason, the Cowboys, especially Tony Romo, could miss more than his running ability.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray could be cap casualty

Thu, 15 Jan 2015 19:15:15 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray will be tough sign to a long-term extension if WR Dez Bryant is also signed, team owner Jerry Jones said Thursday, Jan. 15. Jones called the prospect of signing both players "possible" but not "financially reasonable."

Fantasy Tip: Jones has already indicated that the team will use the franchise tag on Bryant if need be, which means Murray could be the odd man out if he isn't willing to take a little less to stay with Dallas. If Murray does land elsewhere, his fantasy value could dip a little without Dallas' stout offensive line paving the way.
