Lance Dunbar, RB, Cowboys
2014 Outlook: Fantasy HandcuffLast updated on Jun-30-2014 by Larry Gold
DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH: Coming into his third year in the league, Lance Dunbar has the inside track to backing up DeMarco Murray. The undrafted free agent out of North Texas has been a factor on special teams, but has been slowed by injuries and fumbling issues. The Cowboys did get a glimpse of Dunbar's potential when he ripped off a 45-yard run on Thanksgiving Day vs. the Raiders. Given Joseph Randle's less-than-stellar performance in 2013 (and uncertainty around Ryan Williams), Dunbar is set to get more playing time. Dunbar's only value at this time is as a Murray handcuff.
Editor's note: The Cowboys really like Dunbar and plan to use him all over the field. He can contribute both as a runner and receiver. Some super sleeper potential here, but only if Murray falters.
