As expected, the Cowboys will be without their starting running back. We break down the fantasy implications.
The Cowboys have officially listed DeMarco Murray as out for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Murray has missed the last three games with a foot injury and was not expected back this week, but this makes it a sure thing.
After some encouraging workouts, it looked like Murray might make an early return but he'll miss his fourth straight game. Felix Jones will get the bulk of carries in his absence.
Fantasy Take: As usual, Jones has failed to meet expectations as a starter and is averaging 3.6 yards per carry this season on 58 carries. He hasn't been much of a threat as a runner or in the passing game and really does better when he's a change of pace from the starter.
Murray should go back to being a starter in fantasy when he returns, but it's hard to say when that will be.
