DeMarco Murray could miss Week 8, fantasy value dropping

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) reportedly could miss this weekend's game against the New York Giants. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray did not practice on Wednesday and may miss Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Murray is still recovering from a sprained foot and a source tells ESPNDallas.com that the team doesn't believe Murray will be able to play in Week 8.

Murray hurt the foot in Week 6 and did not play last weekend against the Carolina Panthers. If Murray is ruled out, Felix Jones would likely start again in Murray's place. Phillip Tanner would be No. 2 back behind Jones.

Fantasy Impact: Murray had one of his best games of the season in Week 1 against the Giants, so that would be a big loss for Dallas and fantasy owners. Murray hasn't officially been ruled out but this report strongly suggests that fantasy owners need a Plan B for Sunday.

Jones is a No. 2 fantasy option at running back this week if Murray is not active.
