|Two years into his career, DeMarco Murray has shown us a couple of things. One is that he is an elite talent capable of being a top-five RB. The other is that he lacks durability—a trait that has been noted since his collegiate career. There isn't much Murray can't do on a football field. He has averaged 4.8 yards per carry, caught 79.2 percent of his targets, and averaged 116.9 total yards in the 15 games in which he had 15 touches or more. He has soft hands, enough speed to take it to the house, the ability to make tacklers miss and the power to run them over. He has Tarzan talent but Humpty Dumpty bones. If you knew he was going to play 16 games, you could pretty much guarantee top-five fantasy RB production with Murray playing in the Cowboys’ high-powered offense. But he has missed nine games in two years, and that is a lot considering he barely played during the first five games of his rookie career. Rest assured, somebody will see the tantalizing talent and draft him as a low-end RB1. Just don't let it be you. The breakout will likely happen at some point, but the odds of a breakdown are far more probable.

Former Detroit OC Scott Linehan expected to join staff
|The Dallas Cowboys will have their third offensive playcaller in as many years with Scott Linehan joining the coaching staff as passing game coordinator, a source told ESPN Senior NFL Insider Chris Mortensen.
The former Lions offensive coordinator took part in Monday's team meetings, sources said, but the team has not made an official announcement. (Dallas Morning News)|
FF Today's Take: This will be Tony Romo's third offensive playcaller in three seasons. Current OC Bill Callahan is expected to retain his job meaning there may be too many chefs in the Cowboys' offensive kitchen in 2014. DeMarco Murray became more involved towards the end of the season but Linehan's pass-happy approach may derail Murray's fantasy momentum in 2014.
