Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray had 111 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns Sunday at Washington.
Insight: Murray came into the fantasy playoffs with three juicy matchups and he took advantage of them with 376 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown in that span.
 
11/3/2013 5:40:00 PM
Description: In his return from a two-game absence, running back DeMarco Murray led the Cowboys in carries. However, he had just four.
Insight: Murray rushed for 31 yards, with 27 coming on one carry. He added six catches, but for just 19 yards. Dallas opted to throw the football 51 times against the depleted Vikings secondary. Murray has just two games with more than 14 carries this season.

Insight: Murray had 592 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns in six games prior to his injury and should be started as a RB2 in all leagues this week.

Description: Dallas running back DeMarco Murray is officially inactive for Sunday's contest against Detroit. SOURCE: Stacey Dales, NFL Network
Insight: Murray suffered a setback to his sprained knee at Friday's practice and is now forced to watch Sunday's matchup from the sidelines. Fantasy owners who picked up Joseph Randle off waivers can roll him out for another week.
 
10/27/2013 10:14:00 AM
Description: We're hearing conflicting reports on Cowboys halfback DeMarco Murray's availability for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Insight: Bryan Broaddus of Cowboys.com is telling us that Murray (sprained knee) is doubtful while ESPN's Sal Palantonio just said he's probable. We won't know for sure what Murray's status is until the inactive lists come out at 11:30.
 
10/24/2013 11:24:00 AM
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.

Description: Dallas halfback DeMarco Murray returned to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday. SOURCE: Todd Archer, ESPN Dallas
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.
 
10/20/2013 1:25:00 PM
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: Cowboys halfback DeMarco Murray (knee) missed another practice on Friday. He's not expected to play Sunday against Philadelphia. SOURCE: Calvin Watkins, ESPN Dallas
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.
 
10/14/2013 3:38:00 PM
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.
 
9/22/2013 5:46:00 PM
Description: Dallas halfback DeMarco Murray steamrolled the Rams for 175 rushing yards and one touchdown Sunday at AT&T Stadium.
Insight: Murray set a career-high in carries with 26. He also added 28 receiving yards to give him over 200 yards for the day. He'll try to replicate the effort next week against the Chargers.
 
9/10/2013 9:25:00 PM
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.
 
7/10/2013 10:55:00 PM
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.
 
5/28/2013 1:10:00 PM
Description: Dallas running back DeMarco Murray is not participating in team OTAs due to a hamstring issue, according to an NBCSports.com report.
Insight: Murray has the talent to be a top-five back, but is too injury prone to be picked that high by fantasy owners. Here is another example as he's not even healthy in the offseason. Murray played just 10 games last season and 13 games in 2011 and it appears that we will see more of the same in 2013.
 
12/19/2012 12:53:00 PM
Description: Dallas running back DeMarco Murray was held out of Wednesday's practice, but is expected to be ready for Sunday's game with New Orleans.
Insight: Murray has been a workhorse since returning to the lineup in Week 13 and is just getting a regular day off. Facing a Saints' team yielding 146 ypg on the ground, Murray is a must start in Week 16.
 
12/9/2012 5:04:00 PM
Description: Dallas running back DeMarco Murray was held to 2.5 ypc and finished with 53 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals Sunday.
Insight: Murray has crossed the goal line in each of the last two games since returning from a foot injury. The Steelers will present another tough matchup for the Cowboys RB in Week 15.
 
12/5/2012 4:23:00 PM
Description: Dallas running back DeMarco Murray was held out of Wednesday's practice, but is expected to play Sunday against Cincinnati. He'll return to the practice field on Thursday.
Insight: Murray totaled 102 yards, including 83 rushing, in his first game back since Week 6. he came out of the game without any further injury to his foot.
 
12/3/2012 9:43:00 AM
Description: Dallas halfback DeMarco Murray registered 83 rushing yards and a touchdown Sunday in his return from a foot injury.
Insight: Murray broke off a couple long runs on Sunday and didn't seem hampered at all by the foot issues that had kept him out the previous six weeks. Felix Jones will have little fantasy value going forward now that Murray is back at 100 percent.
 
12/2/2012 11:04:00 AM
Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) is expected to play Sunday night versus Philadelphia, but Adam Schefter is reporting that the Cowboys will limit his workload.
Insight: Murray hasn't played since Oct. 14 because of sprained foot so this shouldn't be a surprise to fantasy owners. Murray and Felix Jones should share the carries until Murray is completely recovered.
