DeMarco Murray has a dominant fantasy performance against Rams

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

DeMarco Murray rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

DeMarco Murray finished Sunday with 175 rushing yards and a touchdown. He also had three catches for 28 yards. Murray was able to accomplish all of this while sitting out the fourth quarter when the Cowboys managed a healthy lead. Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner received all of the fourth-quarter work, but both backs paled in comparison to Murray's strong outing.

Fantasy impact: Murray simply couldn't be stopped by St. Louis' lethargic defense on Sunday. He averaged over six yards per carry on 22 attempts. While Dez Bryant owners may have been discouraged that he didn't get many more catches beyond his first quarter touchdown, Murray was able to punish the Rams for planning to take Bryant out of the game. As long as Murray stays healthy, he's a strong RB2 option in all formats. Murray faces the Chargers in Week 4, who just allowed 170 rushing yard to the Titans on Sunday.
