Week 13: vs Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Both Dallas and Philadelphia are standing at 8-3 coming into this matchup - the teams are in a two-way race for the NFC East crown with New York and Washington out of the picture at 3-8. This is the first game of the two scheduled regular-season meetings between the clubs, at AT&T Stadium where the Cowboys are 3-3 so far this season. DeMarco Murray has piled up 143/751/4 rushing and 19/182/0 receiving over the six home games played so far this year (5.25 yards per carry on average and 9.58 yards per catch) - he's the engine that drives the Cowboys' offense. Murray has passed the 100-yards-rushing barrier in each of his last two games played (both on the road) with 19/100/0 rushing and 6/31/0 receiving at Jacksonville during Week 10 and 24/121/0 rushing with 2/22/0 receiving at New York last weekend. The only fly in the ointment for his fantasy owners of late has been the lack of TD scoring - but he is seeing touches in the mid-20's consistently, so there are plenty of opportunities for Murray to find pay dirt. The Eagles' rush D is ranked 16th in the NFL averaging 109.0 yards allowed per game, with six rushing scores given out over 11 contests. They limited Tennessee to 19/56/1 rushing last weekend, after coughing up 25/110/1 to Green Bay two contests back. This is a mediocre unit that has started bleeding six-point plays of late. Murray is at home for this one and he has a good matchup to anticipate on Thanksgiving day.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs JAX (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)

Dunbar had a minimal pass-catching role against Jacksonville as Joseph Randle saw the rushing attempts behind DeMarco Murray. Both receptions for Dunbar came on third downs and for short gains. Dunbar has not been impressive in his limited opportunities, while Joseph Randle continues to flash. If Murray were to go down, Randle is the favorite for a significant uptick in playing time, not Dunbar.

2014 Week 12 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)

Dunbar rarely saw the field behind starter DeMarco Murray against the Giants, but did the most with his singular touch on offense. Dunbar turned up field for 26 yards on a well-blocked screen pass. Dunbar has been used in the passing game far more than fellow reserve Joseph Randle, but less between the tackles. Look for a committee situation if Murray were to miss time down the stretch.
