Murray currently is boasting a mid 2nd ADP (too rich?) and Felix is dropping to handcuff territory (11th-ish)

I know alot of responses will be coming from a natural hate of anything and everything Cowboy's related, but try putting that aside. How do you see the Cowboys backfield shaking out?


Quote:
According to Fox Sports Southwest, "it's obvious that DeMarco Murray is going to be the featured back" for the Cowboys this year.
Josh Ellis of the team's official website has even issued a fantasy alert for Murray, pointing out that he's caught a lot of passes in spring practices. Lacking a proven No. 3 receiver or No. 2 tight end, the Cowboys envision a scenario where Murray lines up in the slot at times with Felix Jones in the backfield. Murray's pass-catching role is a situation to monitor in training camp.

much like it did last year while Murray was healthy. Demarco gets the bulk of the work and handles it well, and Jones has an occasional outburst and ultimately disappoints every fantasy team that depends on him as anything more than a bye-week fill-in.

I think the signing of Lawrence Vickers was a huge improvement for them. They still have a few issues in the interior part of the line, but a slight correction may help them reap some solid returns. Defenses have to respect that receiving core (Miles is suppose to be in great shape) and Romo, which may keep some of the linebackers on their heels.

If Murray can maintain his health, his versatility in his game is tough for Jerry Jones to feel compelled to give Felix enough burn to take a ton of carries away from Murray. He did have 5 games with over 20 carries and that's not including his touches in the receiving game.

I like the way the guy runs. He's a one cut type of runner, similar to that of Arian Foster. His TDs were lacking but if you look at his YPC, the TDs should follow. Plus he's 6ft 227lbs and his size should allow him to get the goal-line carries over Jones.

I draft in the 8th (0.5PPR) and 10th (standard) picks in my 10 team leagues. Not sure if he's worth that early of a pick in Round 2 but I'll have to contemplate it with all the questions surrounding Forte's contract, AP's injury, older backs like the Jacksons ect., and my avoidance of taking a rookie (Trent R.) that early in a draft.

This, although Felix will disappoint as a bye week fill in also. 8)

Definitely. Tanner isn't spectacular, but for a RB3 he's pretty explosive.

To answer the original post, I see Murray as the feature back. 80/15/5, Murray/Felix/Tanner.

I hate the Cowboys and they can S my D. However, I'd love to draft DeMarco if he wasn't a more guaranteed injury than Run DMC. I'll snag him in the 3rd if he falls.

Felix is borderline unrosterable, even in dyno, for anyone but Murray owners.

I'd like a little more info on Murray's "Injury Risk" label.

He missed 4 games in 4 years in college. That's more than some, I suppose, but that doesn't strike me as horribly injury prone.

Last year, he went out with a "bad luck" injury. This wasn't a muscle strain or a sprain or anything. A gigantic dude fell on, and broke, his ankle. Virtually anyone in his position would have suffered the exact same injury.

Help me out, here. Why are we putting him in the same category as guys like DMC and Felix Jones?

I have wondered the same thing...he had some bad luck but injury prone is not how I would label him....last year I was convinced that Jones/Murray would be a 2011 version of 2001/2002 Barlow/Hearst...one back would get a series then the other would get a series but Murray is a much better back in that role of leading back and Felix is a better COB physically...I expect a 70-30 with Murray getting double digits in TD's and 1200 yards on the ground ...Felix getting 400-500 and 2 TDS...

Murray was banged up a bit in College seems like mostly ankle sprains, he played through the pain. That's a good sign as far as I'm concerned.
