DeMarco Murray won't play Sunday, putting fantasy value on hold

Layne Murdoch

DeMarco Murray will miss at least another game with his pesky sprained foot, leaving his fantasy owners in a bind.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons after missing practice on Friday, according to Todd Archer. Murray suffered a sprained foot in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Felix Jones will once again take Murray's place in the backfield, while Phillip Tanner figures to get some work as well. The Cowboys' running game has struggled without Murray.

Fantasy Impact: Murray has been a huge disappointment for fantasy owners this season, and his injury isn't helping matters. Last year, Darren McFadden suffered a similar injury that lingered all season long.

Murray is worth holding on to, as the team hopes he can return to action next week. The Cowboys are taking this week-by-week at this point.
