DeMarco Murray Fantasy Recap: Cowboys RB Battles With Felix Jones Returning

The Dallas Cowboys escaped FedEx Field with 27-24 overtime victory as they also welcomed back long-injured running back Felix Jones. DeMarco Murray remained in the starting lineup and rushed 25 times for 73 yards while hauling in six receptions for 32 yards, but Jones was finally active, rushing five times for 19 yards. Jones has been out since a week six high ankle sprain.

Murray struggled in the Cowboys win as he averaged a season-low 2.9 yards per carry. Now that Felix Jones is back, it will be interesting to see how the Cowboys split the carries between Jones and Murray, if at all. Murray struggled a bit on Sunday, but otherwise he has been downright dominant since replacing the injured Jones. Odds are Murray keeps the number one job, but Jones could easily cut into his carries a modest amount. It is something to keep in mind moving forward.
