DeMarco Murray practices, Felix Jones held out: Fantasy implications

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) practiced on Wednesday, while Felix Jones (knee) was held out. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray practiced on Wednesday, while Felix Jones was held out. Murray has missed the last six games because of a sprained foot. He sustained the injury against Baltimore in Week 6, when he had 93 yards on 14 carries.

Jones has been bothered by a knee injury and has been playing through pain while starting in place of Murray. Jones had 14 yards on six carries in the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Washington Redskins. He did, however, score on a 10-yard reception. The Cowboys face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will have to wait until later in the week to make a decision on Murray and Jones. Murray's return would be a big lift for Dallas but how effective he will be remains a question.

Jones's value for this week depends on his knee and if Murray is active. He could drop from a No. 2 running back to a No. 3/flex play if Murray is cleared this week.
