The Cowboys didn't get much of a run game going against the Seahawks on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

DeMarco Murray wasn't able to put together a performance like he had in Week 1 this time around. He finished with 44 yards on 12 carries, also adding four receptions for 31 yards against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: To be fair, the Seahawks have one of the better run defenses in the league. When you match that up with a Cowboys offense struggling on the road and only giving Murray 12 carries, you can't expect a whole lot of production from the second-year running back. Murray was averaging near five yards per carry in the first half, but that number diminished as the second half progressed. He'll take on the Buccaneers next week, a team that led Giants backup Andre Brown run all over them in Week 2.
