The Dallas Cowboys plan to ride RB DeMarco Murray as much as they can after losing RB Lance Dunbar (knee). "DeMarco Murray is our lead back, has been our lead back all year long, has done an excellent job for us, did a really good job in the game the other day again," head coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday, Dec. 3. "He'll be the lead dog. The other guys, (RBs Joseph Randle and Phillip Tanner) will have to step up if they have an opportunity if DeMarco can't go."
Fantasy Tip: If you're a Murray fantasy owner, this is music to your ears. Randle and Tanner are not real threats to push their way into a timeshare with Murray, so he will see a bulk of the carries in a league where in this day and age teams are using a two-back system. Over his past three games, Murray has 238 rushing yards and four touchdowns, and he has eight receptions for 79 yards over his past two outings.

Dallas Cowboys RB Phillip Tanner left the team's Week 10 game with cramps.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 11:12:41 -0700
Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) will miss the team's Week 7 game but may be able to play Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: With Murray out, Joseph Randle likely will see most of the carries with Phillip Tanner also receiving some playing time. Randle should be considered a flex option while Murray is out. Tanner likely will be just a bench option at this point.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) is dealing with a left medial collateral ligament sprain in his knee, and he'll undergo an MRI exam Monday, Oct. 14. Murray was injured in the second quarter against the Washington Redskins and entered the day ranked fifth in the league with 399 rushing yards. It's unknown if Murray will be able to play in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: Murray will probably be questionable in Week 7, so keep tabs on his status during the week. It's not a long-term injury, but Murray has been injury-prone and isn't what we'd call a quick healer. If he can't play, the Cowboys would likely go with some combination of Phillip Tanner and Joseph Randle in the backfield.

Dallas Cowboys RB Phillip Tanner (arm) suffered a left arm injury in the first quarter of the Hall of Fame preseason game Sunday, Aug. 4, against the Miami Dolphins, but he was able to return to the game later.
Tue, 30 Jul 2013 18:16:31 -0700
Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (thumb) showed well in the team's scrimmage, and is off to a good start in training camp, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Still, Randle is behind RB Lance Dunbar for the race for the backup job to RB DeMarco Murray, and RB Phillip Tanner has reportedly been more consistent as well.
Fantasy Tip: Randle missed practice in the offseason due to a thumb injury, so he has gotten behind a bit. However, he has more upside than Dunbar and Tanner. Right now, he is only worth drafting in long-term keeper formats.
