Cowboys 'not optimistic' about DeMarco Murray's Week 11 status: Fantasy implications

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

According to a report, the Cowboys don't think DeMarco Murray (foot) will be ready to play this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (foot) may be sitting out at least another week. According to ESPN's Ed Werder, the Cowboys are "not optimistic" about him playing against the Browns this week and don't think his sprained foot is sufficiently healed.

Murray hasn't played since suffering the foot injury in Week 6. Felix Jones has been filling in for him.

Fantasy Impact: Best-case scenario may be a "doubtful" listing in official injury reports, but it sounds like fantasy owners can sit him out another week. The Cowboys will also have a short week for the Thanksgiving game, so Murray could very well not be back until Week 13 at the earliest.

Felix Jones showed some surprising life against Phily, and can be considered a low-end RB2/flex play this week.
