Murray ran for 134 yards on 18 carries and scored a touchdown in Sunday's 37-36 loss to Green Bay. He also grabbed four passes on seven targets for 19 yards.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Murray was a fantasy beast for the third straight week, ripping off yards in chunks, including a 41-yard scamper in the first half. He also scored a one-yard touchdown right before halftime. He probably wasn’t used as much as he should have been in the second half, with Dallas up by double digits. Continue to start him with confidence, as he should produce in Week 16 against a below average Washington defense.
Murray rushed for 145 yards on 18 carries in Monday's loss to Chicago.

Murray didn't receive the workload expected of him during his return as the Cowboys' primary running back Sunday versus the Vikings, when he was given four carries and targeted seven times.

After two games on the sideline to tend to a sprained MCL, Murray will handle the bulk of the workload out of the Cowboys' backfield, against a Minnesota run defense that has given up at least one touchdown to running backs in four games in a row.
Murray (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Murray practiced fully all week, so he's just about a lock to return to his starting role at running back. The Vikings have allowed nine rushing touchdowns on the year, so Murray is a solid RB2 on paper this week.

2014

2013

Murray was derailed by injuries again last year, missing six games with a sprained foot. He's battled various maladies since his college days at Oklahoma and has now missed nine games in two NFL seasons – and missed most of May minicamp with a hamstring injury. If Murray could stay healthy for a full season, the versatile back has the skills – a powerful, slashing running style, great speed (4.41 40) and good hands out of the backfield (35 receptions on 42 targets) – to be one of the position's top producers. His environment could use some improvement, however – the Cowboys had a below-average offensive line last season, and the defense often forced the team to play from behind. Moreover, Murray saw only eight carries from inside the 10 (33rd) and five from inside the five (T-29th). Heading into 2013, Murray has the starting job all to himself – Felix Jones is in Philadelphia, leaving only rookie Joseph Randle as the primary backup.

2012

Murray had an impressive rookie campaign, including a signature performance in Week 7, when he ran for 253 yards (the ninth most by anyone in NFL history and the second most by a rookie ever) against the Rams, including a season-high 91-yard touchdown run on his first carry of the game. Murray had totaled just 25 carries up until then, so he took full advantage of his first real opportunity. It started a six-game stretch in which he totaled a whopping 915 yards before his season ended due to a broken right ankle in Week 14. Murray finished with just two touchdowns, but he got an impressive 5.5 YPC and established himself as the team’s lead back over Felix Jones, who continues to prove he works best in a change-of-pace role. Murray is something of a risk, being so unproven and coming off a serious injury, but he’s displayed explosiveness and is in what projects to be a potent offense, with Tony Romo, Miles Austin, Dez Bryant and Jason Witten as weapons. As the lead back who’s a dangerous receiver and the team’s best option at the goal line, Murray has a lot of upside.

2011

The Cowboys used their third-round pick to select Murray, who should immediately compete with Tashard Choice to back up Felix Jones. Murray ran an impressive 4.41 40 at the Combine, and his selection ended Marion Barber’s career in Dallas. Murray’s collegiate stats didn’t overwhelm at Oklahoma, but he could make an impact as a rookie if Felix Jones were to get hurt or show no improvement over his performance last season. The most likely outcome is a shared backfield in Dallas, and it may even become a three-headed monster, effectively ruining every back’s fantasy value.
