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.

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 12:23:02 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has a hefty price tag on FantasyScore at $7,900 this week but has shown that he is one of the top fantasy running backs, so owners should consider using him if they are willing to spend the money.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Murray appears to be on track to play in Week 7. Owners would have to spend $7,900 on Murray at FantasyScore this week, but he may be worth that price since he has been a consistent producer in fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Murray should be ready to play in Week 7 unless the illness is serious. Murray is one of the most expensive running backs on FantasyScore at $7,900, but has shown that he can produce the numbers owners are looking for each week.

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.

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.
