DeMarco Murray not practicing for Cowboys, fantasy value stable for Week 16

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray did not practice on Wednesday, likely resting the sore foot that kept him out of six games earlier this season. Murray has scored touchdowns in his last three games for the Cowboys, who are coming off an overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Murray had 81 yards on 14 carries against Pittsburgh. Murray has had at least 14 rushing attempts in all three games since returning from his foot injury. Dallas faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact: Murray's absence on Wednesday sounds precautionary and should not concern fantasy owners counting on him again this weekend.

Murray has a favorable matchup and should be considered a No. 1/2 fantasy running back against the Saints.
