Week 9: vs Arizona Cardinals

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. DeMarco Murray has eight straight 100+ yards-rushing games in a row, and he totaled 221 yards from scrimmage last week on 23 total touches. Start him if you've got him, he's gone over 1,000 yards rushing in only eight games and is in a league of his own when it comes to fantasy production this year. The Cardinals' rush D is ranked third in the NFL averaging 77.9 yards allowed per game, with four rushing scores given up so far. Philadelphia managed 26/110/0 rushing at Arizona last week; Oakland had 19/56/1 there two weeks ago. This is a tough matchup for Murray in the rushing phase of the game, but he's also your fantasy starter unless you are completely loaded at running back this season.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs SEA (1 / -4 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)

Dunbar was efficient with his touches as a receiver this week against Seattle. On three occasions the defense left Dunbar alone on third-and-long situations as he broke off long gains each time. All of Dunbar's impact came in the first half as DeMarco Murray dominated the touches over the final 30 minutes.

2014 Week 7 vs NYG (3 / 16 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

DeMarco Murray was out of the lineup at times with an ankle injury and limited in the second half, but Dunbar remained a situational player. The play designs when Dunbar sees a carry is rarely between the tackles, indicating Dunbar as a satellite player. Joseph Randle continues to see more interior work than Dunbar when both are healthy.

2014 Week 8 vs WAS (1 / 6 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Dunbar saw minimal playing time, but showed a nice burst on an outside run to convert third-and-short. In addition, Dunbar converted a dump off reception into a first down during Dallas' two-minute drill against Washington this week.
