|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.

DeMarco Murray averaging less than 3.3 YPC over last two weeks

FF Today's Take: It was thought the 247-pound Henry was going to steal at least some of the goal-line carries when he was drafted and again when he impressed in the preseason, but Tennessee opted to give DeMarco Murray a league-high 274 touches through the first 12 weeks of the season. Now it appears the Titans, at the very least, may want to take away the potential high-impact touches from Murray. Look for Henry to steal at least 8-10 touches from Murray moving forward, putting him on the flex radar.

Sat out Wednesday's session

FF Today's Take: Murray has routinely been getting Wednesdays off lately, so Tennessee is just keeping the 28-year-old's legs as fresh as possible. He has scored a rushing touchdown in five straight games and seems like a pretty good bet to finish as a top-five back again this week versus the Indianapolis Colts.

FF Today's Take: Tennessee is giving DeMarco Murray a well earned day of rest after he did it all against the Packers in Week 10. Look for him to return to practice Thursday as the team prepares for a key divisional match up against the Colts this week.

Toe injury shouldn't keep Murray off the field

FF Today's Take: Murray injured his toe in last week's game but should suit up an play today against the Chargers after practicing Thursday and Friday. There's some concern that Derrick Henry could eat into Murray's workload this week after the rookie posted 97 total yards and a TD against the Jaguars.
