2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
DeMarco Murray is coming off his best season as a professional, but still did not manage to play a full season—an issue that has plagued Murray throughout his three years in the NFL. Last year he did manage a career-high 14 games, and gained almost 1,500 total yards, while finding the end zone 10 times. He also caught 53 balls last season, a number that could increase in Scott Linehan's offense. Linehan has claimed that he will lean on the running game in Dallas, but his past history speaks otherwise. Still, with recent improvements to the offensive line and a talent like Murray, the Cowboys should have a very effective running game and Murray could be poised to set career highs across the board. As always, health could be an issue for a running back who doesn't always find himself able to avoid contact due to an upright and violent running style. However, at 6'0” and 220 pounds, and with impressive straight-line speed, Murray can dish out the punishment as well. An owner could do worse than picking Murray somewhere near the Round 1/Round 2 turn in drafts later this summer.

Comment: Murray is a perfect fit for the new Dallas offense but he's yet to play a full season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury DeMarco Murray practices Wednesday
Considered day to day
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 17, 1:05 pm

Dallas Cowboys
DeMarco Murray will be considered day to day after undergoing hand surgery on Monday. But on Wednesday, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett outlined some of the benchmarks they hope to see their star running back hit before determining his status for Sunday. "I think we need to see something," Garrett told reporters Wednesday. "There's a comfort level that we all have and certainly a comfort level that he has. Carrying the football is an important responsibility, so you have to be able to do it. I think we all want to see it and I know he wants to see it. So we'll take it day by day and see how he progresses." (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Murray is on track to play this week but we won't know for sure until Sunday. If Murray should happen to sit, the Cowboys are likely to go with a committee approach using Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar. Randle would be a candidate for early-down work.


Injury Cowboys: DeMarco Murray can play with hand injury
Surgery deemed a success and injury "easily tolerated"
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Dec 16, 10:15 am

Dallas Cowboys
Werder tweeted the following on Tuesday morning about DeMarco Murray: #Cowboys believe @DeMarcoMurray can play Sunday. Injury easily tolerated. Surgery successful, full healing in 6 weeks but no additional risk. (Ed Werder on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This confirms fellow Cowboys beat writer Brian Broaddus' comments earlier today that Murray should be able to give it a go against the Colts. While there's some concern about his ability to handle pass blocking duties and catch passes, Murray's legs still look fresh and he's been a huge reason the Cowboys are 10-4 and atop the NFC East. Still -- Joseph Randle will likely see increased touches and makes for a smart waiver wire pickup.


Injury DeMarco Murray to have surgery on broken hand
Hasn't been ruled out for Week 16 yet
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 15, 1:25 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray broke a bone in his hand and will have surgery on Monday, according to COO Stephen Jones. He has not been ruled out for Sunday’s game against Indianapolis. “Obviously, DeMarco Murray has a broken bone in his hand. At the same time, he hasn’t been ruled out,” said Jones with the G-Bag Nation on 105.3 The Fan. “It’s not something that if it responds well after surgery today, that he can’t come back and play this weekend. It’s probably a tough expectation to think that he can, but we’ll see.” (CBS DFW)

FFToday's Take: Bad news obviously for Murray owners as the Dallas RB is having a career year and a cornerstone for teams still in the playoffs. His availability for Week 16 will be determined later this week. Joseph Randle would likely be the starter if Murray sits with Lance Dunbar being used on passing downs.
