DeMarco Murray wants Cowboys offense to be more balanced; would help fantasy value

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is hoping his team's offense will become more balanced. We break down the fantasy implications.

Running back DeMarco Murray isn't happy with the way the Dallas Cowboys have been running the ball in recent weeks. In the last two games, Murray has gained 82 yards on 30 carries after ripping off 131 yards on 20 carries in the team's Week 1 win over the New York Giants. Murray said (via ESPNDallas.com) that the offense became one- dimensional last week against Tampa Bay and "it's a little frustrating when you're one-dimensional." Murray did, however, score his first rushing touchdown of the season against the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Murray is a strong fantasy option but his owners had to be hoping he'd get more chances to carry the ball, especially after what he did in Week 1 against the Giants. It was hard to blame Dallas for wanting to throw against a Tampa Bay defense that allowed more than 500 yards passing to the New York Giants but Murray's fantasy value is tied to more balance in the offense. He's a low-end No. 1 back this week.
