DeMarco Murray Shows Up On Injury Report But Fantasy Value Should Be Fine

DeMarco Murray wound up on the injury report on Wednesday for Dallas. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (wrist) wound up on the injury report on Wednesday but was still a full participant in practice. It appears that he got a little banged up in the season opener against the Giants but it would be a shocker to not see him as the starter and full-time back against the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis: Murray was unstoppable against the Seahawks last season and rushed for 139 yards on 22 carries with 4 catches for 47 yards as Seattle struggled to stop shifty backs that had enough burst to get to the outside. The linebackers were not able to catch up, so Seattle drafted the speedy Bobby Wagner in the 2nd round but we have to see if that will effect how productive a back like Murray can still be, especially after the Seahawks completely shutdown the Arizona running game in week 1. Either way, if he's healthy Murray is a must-start.
