Summary

DeMarco Murray dominated the NFL landscape in 2014. After several promising seasons in Dallas that were somewhat limited by nagging injuries, Murray put together a dominant year. Running behind the NFL's best offensive line, Murray led the NFL in carries (392), rushing yards (1,845), rushing TDs (13), and yards from scrimmage (2,261). Murray parlayed his breakthrough season into free agent riches with division rival Philadelphia. Although the Eagles system is different from Dallas', it's worth noting that LeSean McCoy led the NFL in yards two seasons ago under Chip Kelly. There's no reason Murray can't thrive in Philadelphia, as the centerpiece of a unit that's finished Top 5 in points scored in consecutive seasons. Murray's workload will take a step back from last year's 450+ touches -- but that should help keep the powerhouse runner fresh for the stretch run. Murray projects as a top 10 fantasy RB at worst, and could push for RB1 honors yet again depending on how Kelly plans on divvying up the carries between Murray, Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles.

Cowboys | Dallas going to miss DeMarco Murray? (Sun May 17, 07:16 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is going to be missed by his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, according to retired WR Michael Irvin. 'I want to upchuck sometimes when I hear the thoughts of others and (they say), 'Oh, you can put any running back behind that offensive line of the Dallas Cowboys,' Irvin said. 'I say, 'Really? Why did they hand the ball off to DeMarco Murray 392 times? Why didn't they stick anybody back there last year?' Because they already knew.'

Our View: Of course they're going to miss Murray! He's better than any of the current options they have as Murray is one of the best running backs in the game today. The Cowboys did not add a running back in the 2015 NFL draft, instead option to see what Darren McFadden or Joseph Randle could do behind their monstrous (and incredibly talented) offensive line.
