DeMarco Murray returns to practice, fantasy value strong for Week 16

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) returned to practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray returned to practice as expected on Thursday, a day after sitting out to rest his foot. Murray, who missed six games earlier this season with a sprained foot, has typically not practiced on Wednesdays since returning from the injury. He was listed as a limited participant on Thursday.

Murray ran for 81 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 and has scored in three straight games since returning to the Dallas lineup. The Cowboys face the New Orleans Saints in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact: Murray was never in danger of missing Week 16 and fantasy owners should again put him in their lineups with confidence against New Orleans.

Murray should be considered a No. 1 fantasy option this weekend at running back.
