2014 Outlook:  

Last updated on Jun-30-2014 by Larry Gold

Injuries in the backfield gave Joseph Randle an immediate opportunity to show the Cowboys what they were getting with their 2013 fifth round pick. Unfortunately for Randle, he did not impress and now finds himself down a bit on the depth chart. Randle averaged a pedestrian 3.0 yards per rush on 54 carries and started two games during DeMarco Murray's absence. With the signing of Ryan Williams, Randle is going to have to earn a roster spot and improve on his running between the tackles.

Latest Update

Dec-20-14 Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray expects to suit up vs. Colts

We are less than 24 hours away from kickoff in Dallas between the Colts and the Cowboys. And right now, DeMarco Murray expects to be ready for that moment.'s Desmond Purnell reported Saturday that Murray "plans" to be in the Cowboys' lineup tomorrow. Murray underwent surgery Monday night to fix a broken bone in his left hand, an injury he sustained late in Dallas' Week 15 win at Philadelphia. A metal plate and eight screws were placed inside Murray's hand. He is officially listed as questionable but was able to practice throughout the week.

Fantasy Analysis:

On Monday, I wondered in this space how a starting running back can fulfill his normal role so soon after having one of his hands surgically repaired. I guess I'll find out.
There are many opinions on what fantasy owners should do with Murray in this championship week. The matchup is not daunting -- Indy has allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to RBs -- but could he be limited? Will he be able to catch anything? How much work will the Cowboys give Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar to take the burden off of him? Certainly, Murray has a lot of question marks surrounding him in Week 16. But if he's active, I want him in my lineup against a defense allowing 4.3 yards per carry. He's one of the top candidates for fantasy MVP and has been one of the best players in the NFL this season. I have faith that he'll play at least a decent amount, and I'll dance with who brought me with no regrets.
