Summary

We may never see DeMarco Murray become a 300+ carry running game workhorse, but last year he gave fantasy owners enough to matter. Murray finished as a top 10 fantasy RB in all formats by rushing for 1,121 yards and 9 touchdowns. He also caught an impressive 53 passes for 350 yards. Murray need only stay healthy to return RB1 numbers again in 2014; after all, the Cowboys are 11-0 in games Murray has run at least 20 times. He's got great size, instincts, and showed last year an ability to gain tough yards after contact. He's the total package. (June 5)

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to be leader of RB committee (Wed Aug 13, 02:06 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is expected to receive most of the carries this season, but other running backs could also receive some snaps as part of a committee at running back, according to Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett.

Our View: Fantasy owners take note here. Unlike other backs selected around him (Marshawn Lynch, Montee Ball), Murray is going to be operating in a committee situation. He'll be the lead back, but expect a guy like Lance Dunbar to be more involved than some people think. His current ADP if RB7 (2.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.
