Cowboys | DeMarco Murray credits workout partner

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 21:29:10 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray worked out with TE Jason Witten before the team's official offseason program, and he credits the veteran tight end with his increased stamina and durability. "It helped a lot, obviously with the stamina aspect just building a good armor for your body so you can take some hits and take the pounding of a long season," Murray said Friday, Oct. 24. "He's done it for a long time and he's someone who has had a lot of success in this league and he knows what to do to take care of your body in season and out of season, so it helped extremely a lot and I have to thank him and we're still working together."

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray makes NFL history

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 18:26:22 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is the first played in NFL history with over 100 rushing yards in each of his first seven games to begin a season, surpassing Hall of Fame RB Jim Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Murray left the game briefly to have his ankle re-taped, but obviously the injury wasn't a hindrance. He has been unreal for fantasy owners in seasonal leagues, and even with a high price in FantasyScore he is worth using week in and week out.

Cowboys | Tyler Clutts earning roster spot

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 20:39:12 -0700

Dallas Cowboys FB Tyler Clutts is earning his roster spot with the team. He is still averaging just nine snaps per game, but he played a season-high 14 snaps in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks. In that game, he had a key block on a 25-yard run by RB DeMarco Murray in the fourth quarter, and Murray's 15-yard touchdown run two plays later. He also had a good block in a crucial situation in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Clutts, himself, does not have fantasy appeal, but Murray's fantasy value certainly is helped by the solid blocking of the back. Should Clutts go down to injury, we might see a decrease in Murray's production.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray practices in full

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:09:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (illness) returned to a full practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is the highest priced running back for a reason at FantasyScore. He's the league's leading rusher, and the Cowboys haven't slowed down his workload in recent weeks despite saying they would. Even if he receives fewer touches, he should be able to do plenty of damage against the New York Giants in Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (illness) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray not worried

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 18:14:34 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray said he is not concerned about his heavy workload this year and isn't letting it affect the way he runs.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has been one of the steadiest players at any position this year, and he should have another big game in Week 7 when the Cowboys face a New York Giants defense that just allowed the Eagles to run for more than 200 yards. Murray will take up 15.8% of the cap ($7,900) at FantasyScore, and he makes a great high-priced option to build a lineup around.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray contract talks begin

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 13:17:10 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray has started preliminary talks on a contract extension with the team. He is entering the final year of his four-year deal, and his base salary for this season is $1.3 million. The Cowboys could decide to put the transition tag on him.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys will do everything in their power to keep Murray around long term. He's the leading rusher heading into Week 6 and should be started in all formats, although his matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend is a tough one on the road.
