Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray continued to be the focal point of the Dallas offense in Week 3.
Insight: Murray rushed 24 times for 100 yards and a touchdown. That makes 75 carries for 385 yards and three touchdowns in three weeks. Fantasy owners love the production, but part of them is just waiting for Murray, who has a lot of past injuries, to get hurt.

Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was at his best today, rushing 29 times for 167 yards and a score.
Insight: Great news for Week 2, but you have to be fearful of the oft-injured Murray seeing 30 touches a game. Jump for joy about the excellent fantasy numbers, but hope for a little better balance next week, so he will survive to help you at fantasy playoff time.

Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray played three series in Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins and rushed for 18 yards on six carries and made one catch for six yards.
Insight: The big question behind Murray is whether he can actually stay on the field this year. In his three year career, he has never played more than 14 games. Behind what should be a powerful Cowboy line this season, Murray could really shine.

Description: According to Jason La Canfora of cbssports.com, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said that he sees DeMarco Murray as "the leader of a committee" at running back, but he added that Murray has "bell-cow traits."
Insight: Murray is going to see plenty of touches, but the Cowboys will mix in Lance Dunbar to make sure Murray stays healthy. He's never played 16 games in a season and has dealt with injuries going back to college, so he's extremely risky at his current 12.6 ADP.

Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray isn't expected to play in Thursday's first preseason game, according to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: Given Murray's injury-prone status, we are fine with anything plan that keeps him healthy for the season opener. he has never played a complete 16-game schedule. Murray set personal records for rushing attempts (217), rushing yards (1,124), rushing touchdowns (9) , receptions (53) and receiving yards (350) in 2013-14.

Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray set personal records for rushing attempts (217), rushing yards (1,124), rushing touchdowns (9) , receptions (53) and receiving yards (350) in 2013-14.
Insight: Two factors made it possible. Murray started and played in 14 games, the most in his three professional seasons and the Cowboys didn't re-sign Felix Jones. Dallas doesn't have a No. 2 back to challenge Murray on their roster, so if healthy, Murray should be able to reproduce last year's fantasy totals.

Description: Dallas running back DeMarco Murray returned to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday and has been upgraded to probable for Sunday versus Detroit.
Insight: He missed Sunday's win against Philadelphia because of a sprained knee. If that's the case, rookie Joseph Randle will no longer be a fantasy consideration, but don't cut Randle yet in case Murray has a setback. Murray missed nine of 32 games (28 percent) over the first two years of his career.

Insight: He missed Sunday's win over Philadelphia because of a sprained knee. There's a good chance we see Murray back in the lineup this week against Detroit. If that's the case, rookie Joseph Randle will no longer be a fantasy consideration.

Description: FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (knee) has a Grade 2 sprain of his MCL.
Insight: Murray was inactive for Week 7 at Philadelphia and we wouldn't count on him being available in Week 8 given how long he took to return from an injury last season. Joseph Randle will fill in while Murray is out, though reports suggest the Cowboys could also deal for a running back before the trade deadline.
 
10/20/2013 11:55:00 AM
Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (knee) is not active for Sunday against Philadelphia.
Insight: It would have been a good matchup too as the Eagles have given up an average of almost 106 yards per game on the ground this season. Instead, the Cowboys will have to rely on rookie Joseph Randle out of the backfield. The 21-year-old was limited to 17 yards on 11 attempts last week versus the Redskins but he did manage to score a touchdown.

Description: Dallas running back DeMarco Murray is likely to miss Week 7 with a sprained left MCL, according to John Breech of CBSSports.com
Insight: The injury could end up being a 2-to-3 week problem and even after that, it could be a while before Murray is back to normal. If Murray can't play against the Eagles on Sunday, the Cowboys will be forced to use rookie Joseph Randle out of the backfield.

Description: Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says he'd like his team to have a more balanced approach after running 51 pass plays and 21 running plays despite never trailing Sunday night against the Giants. SOURCE: ESPN.com
Insight: DeMarco Murray saw a good workload against New York, getting 20 carries and eight catches. He ran for 86 yards and added 39 receiving. What would help Murray's value the most is more carries inside the 10-yard line. He has just six career touchdowns on 345 carries. However, with big targets like Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and Miles Austin, this team has little reason to run the football near the goal line.

Description: According to the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (hamstring) said he'll be 100 percent for training camp.
Insight: The question is: how long will he stay 100 percent? The running back missed the last few games of the 2011 season due to a fractured right ankle and then six games last season due to a foot injury. Murray is currently being drafted at an ADP of 27.9 in fantasyfootballcalculator.com mock drafts, 18th among running backs.
