|When Felix Jones went down with an ankle injury in Week 6, Murray took over the starting role and proved the Cowboys made the correct decision by drafting him in the 3rd round of the 2011 draft. Murray ran wild over the St. Louis Rams in Week 7 with 25 rushes for 253 yards and a score. He put together a string of solid performances until suffering a broken ankle in Week 14 that ended his season. Murray possesses outstanding speed, enough agility to make tacklers miss on the second level and enough strength to run over defenders when he has a head of steam. Unfortunately, he also canít stay healthy making him a risky proposition as a RB1 in 2012. One thing is for certain, head coach Jason Garrett will give him the ball enough to establish himself as an upper tier running back. In the seven games that he was the Cowboys primary back, Murray accumulated 155 touches. His talent and productivity when he played last season coupled with the Cowboys strong offense basically ensure that some owner in your league will draft him as their RB1 and take on that risk. You need to decide if that owner is going to be you.
|Cowboys have a new playcaller -- Tue Jan 28 11:20 am --|
Former Detroit OC Scott Linehan expected to join staff
|The Dallas Cowboys will have their third offensive playcaller in as many years with Scott Linehan joining the coaching staff as passing game coordinator, a source told ESPN Senior NFL Insider Chris Mortensen.
The former Lions offensive coordinator took part in Monday's team meetings, sources said, but the team has not made an official announcement. (Dallas Morning News)|
FF Today's Take: This will be Tony Romo's third offensive playcaller in three seasons. Current OC Bill Callahan is expected to retain his job meaning there may be too many chefs in the Cowboys' offensive kitchen in 2014. DeMarco Murray became more involved towards the end of the season but Linehan's pass-happy approach may derail Murray's fantasy momentum in 2014.
