Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 16 vs IND (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

Dunbar saw minimal playing time when the game was in doubt as Joseph Randle is the clear backup behind DeMarco Murray. His lone play of note against the Colts was shedding an initial defender following a flat route reception, turning up field for an extra 10 yards. Dunbar's lack of between-the-tackles acumen has left him clearly third on the Dallas depth chart and in a pass-catching role.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to be game-time decision? (Tue Dec 16, 05:42 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) will likely be a game-time decision against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said the team is still evaluating Murray's status for this weekend. I think we just want to take a look at it. We dont know, Jones said. Im not so sure, when they say the definition of healing, how much can heal between now and Sunday.

Our View: Fantasy owners will be on the edge of their seats until we get a decision. Have Murray at the ready, but make sure to have a backup plan in place. The Cowboys have a backup plan in case Murray can't play. RBs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will prepare for increased workloads if Murray can't play, and RB Ryan Williams could be activated off the practice squad.

Cowboys | Owner optimistic on DeMarco Murray (Tue Dec 16, 01:14 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) has a good chance to play in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts despite having surgery on a broken left hand, according to owner Jerry Jones.

Our View: Alright Jerry, whatever you say. Let's see what the team doctors have to see before Week 16. Jones thinks RBs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar can carry the load efficiently if Murray has to sit. Jones also added that Murray won't need to practice this week in order to play.

Cowboys | Joseph Randle to see bigger role (Mon Dec 15, 05:10 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle will be the primary running back in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts if RB DeMarco Murray (hand) is forced to miss the game. RB Lance Dunbar would likely step into a bigger role, as well. 'I have a lot of confidence that Joseph Randle would step up and play big for us,' owner Stephen Jones said. 'Anytime that he's had a chance to run the ball this year -- which maybe hasn't been enough -- he's been very successful.'

Our View: Murray has never played a full season in his pro career. This year things looked different as Murray had the largest workload he's ever seen as a football player. This hand injury could knock him out of a sweet matchup against a poor Colts rush defense in Week 16. Randle would be a RB2 with RB1 upside if he gets the start in your fantasy championship.
