Week 12: at New York Giants

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The last time these teams met it was Week 7 (October 19) - Dallas prevailed 31-21 thanks in large part to 28/128/1 rushing with 1/4/0 receiving on the part of DeMarco Murray. Since then, he's posted two more games with 100 or more yards rushing, sandwiched around a season-low of 19/79/0 rushing with 4/11/0 receiving vs. Arizona during Week 9 (the game in which Brandon Weeden started for the Cowboys). Murray remains a fire-and-forget fantasy option who should be in your lineup each week. The Giants' rush D is currently dead last in the NFL averaging 145.0 yards allowed per game, with a league-worst 13 rushing scores handed out to date. Most recently, San Francisco piled up 37/148/0 rushing on the New York Swiss Cheese defensive front. This is a great matchup for Murray.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs ARI (3 / 9 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)

Dunbar saw the bulk of the relief duties over Joseph Randle when DeMarco Murray needed a breather against Arizona. Dunbar was primarily used on the perimeter, including his highlight play in the first quarter. Dallas' offensive line sprung Dunbar into the open field on a screen pass to convert third-and-long and shift field position. Two toss plays in the middle of the game were stuffed by the defense prior to Dunbar logging 20 yards on two touches in garbage time. With Joseph Randle seeing minimal playing time, Dunbar gets a projected boost if DeMarco Murray were to miss time.

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.
