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 owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sunday, Oct. 27, that RB DeMarco Murray (knee) could have played in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions. "I think DeMarco Murray could have gone," Jones said. "I don't know what risk we would have taken with him, but he could have gone." RB Joseph Randle rushed for just 26 yards on 14 carries, and RB Lance Dunbar had 16 yards on five runs.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 8 game.
Fantasy Tip: Joseph Randle likely will receive most of the carries during the game and should be considered a No. 3 running back or flex option this week.

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle might make his second straight start in place of RB DeMarco Murray (knee) in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions, if Murray is unable to go. Officially, Murray is questionable, or 50-50 to play.
Fantasy Tip: Randle would face a Detroit Lions rushing defense which ranks 23rd in the NFL, allowing 115.1 yards per game on the ground. If Randle does indeed make the start, consider him a sneaky low-end RB2 or flex play in most fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions, but the team is optimistic that he will play after he went through a third straight day of limited practice Friday, Oct. 25. Murray missed Week 7 with a sprained knee. "He's got a real shot," executive vice president Stephen Jones said of Murray. "Wouldn't say for sure. I think it's still questionable but we'll kind of see how he feels after today's practice and we'll see how it feels on Sunday and we'll make a decision …. We want to do right for DeMarco for the season not just one game." RB Joseph Randle would start again if Murray isn't able to suit up. RB Lance Dunbar (hamstring) will also be back in Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: Basically, Murray will be a game-time decision this weekend. Check back Sunday morning to find out if he's playing. If he's in there, he should probably be in your starting lineup, depending on your other options.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 23, and he was wearing shoulder pads and sweatpants.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Murray is headed for a questionable designation for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions. If he plays, he'll likely split plenty of the workload with Joseph Randle. Tread carefully here.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 7 game.
Fantasy Tip: Joseph Randle is expected to get most of the playing time at running back with Murray out. Randle should be considered as a flex option for most fantasy owners.
Fri, 18 Oct 2013 15:28:19 -0700
Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as doubtful for Week 7.
Fantasy Tip: It appears like Murray will sit out the game because of his injury. Joseph Randle likely will receiver most of the reps at running back this week and should be considered a flex option for most fantasy owners.
Wed, 16 Oct 2013 15:54:51 -0700
Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (knee) is preparing as if he will play in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles. "I am running, doing some good things with (trainer) Britt (Brown). We haven't said which way, what we're going to do yet. I think it all depends on how comfortable I am. We were able to do some things today and it felt good," Murray said. Owner Jerry Jones said Murray could sit out this week and return in Week 8 to face the Detroit Lions.
Fantasy Tip: Murray is probably being overly optimistic. The Cowboys won't rush him back, especially with his history of injuries and slow recoveries. Don't expect to be able to use him this weekend. Joseph Randle should see a large amount of work even if Murray miraculously plays.
