DeMarco Murray misses another practice, no fantasy value for Week 7

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys DeMarco Murray did not practice again on Friday, moving him closer to officially being ruled out for Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

DeMarco Murray did not practice again on Friday for the Dallas Cowboys and should officially be ruled out for Week 7 because of a sprained left foot. Team owner Jerry Jones said earlier in the week that it "looks obvious" that Murray will not play against the Carolina Panthers.

Felix Jones will start in place of Murray. Jones had 18 carries for 92 yards and a touchdown in last weekend's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Phillip Tanner may also see some carries on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: No one is expecting Murray to play and fantasy owners have had plenty of time to make preparations this week, whether it be grabbing Jones or moving another player into the lineup.

Jones is low No. 1/high-end No. 2 fantasy option at running back this week. Murray may be able to return for Week 8 but his value could be affected if Jones performs well on Sunday.
