Felix Jones will do most of the work on Sunday at running back for the Cowboys but that doesn't mean the Dallas offense will depart from a two-back system. Coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday that Phillip Tanner will likely get some carries against the Carolina Panthers, even though he is confident that Jones can handle the additional workload.
Starting running back DeMarco Murray has already been ruled out for Week 7's game against the Carolina Panthers because of a sprained foot. Jones had 18 carries for 92 yards last weekend against Baltimore.
Fantasy Impact: Jones is clearly the back to have here, although it's interesting to note that Tanner will get some chances against Carolina. This could end up being a one-week thing but Jones is worth a waiver wire claim if he's available for an owner with a thin roster because of bye weeks or injuries.
Jones is a solid No. 2 fantasy option at running back until Murray returns.
