DeMarco Murray injury update: Fantasy value diminishes with 'out' status

Layne Murdoch

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is officially listed as 'out' for the team's game on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Dallas Cowboys won't have running back DeMarco Murray, who is officially listed as 'out' for the team's game on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Murray sprained his foot in last week's loss to the Baltimore Ravens and did not practice this week. He has no chance of playing on Sunday.

Felix Jones will start in place of the injured Murray after totaling over 90 yards and a touchdown last week in relief. Jones has been waiting for another opportunity to carry the load since getting injured last season and losing his job to Murray.

Fantasy Impact: Felix Jones is a top-15 fantasy running back this week. If you were lucky enough to snag him off the waiver wire, feel free to start him without hesitation.

The Panthers are allowing 127 yards per game to opponents on the ground, so Jones should have no trouble piling up yardage.
