Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray produced in a rare game that featured a commitment to running the football.
Entering the game, the Washington Redskins defense allowed 21 rushing touchdowns and 1,552 rushing yards, and the Cowboys capitalized. Murray ripped off chunks of yardage routinely, including a 43-yard gain. Murray finished the afternoon with 96 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown, and also caught three passes for 15 yards, including the game-winning touchdown reception.
Fantasy Spin: Good things tend to happen when Murray is heavily involved in the game plan, and Sunday was no different. For owners who needed a great output from Murray during championship week, it was the perfect finish to cap off an inconsistent season. For owners who got burned by him in key weeks, it was a sarcastic sendoff.
For owners who are still playing fantasy football in Week 17, Murray remains a low-end RB1 with upside during a game where the Cowboys have everything to play for.
