DeMarco Murray practices two days after surgery, itching to start for fantasy owners

The Cowboys’ star running back practiced on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys running back (broken finger) practiced with the team on Wednesday, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. Murray is hoping to play against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, despite the fact he had surgery to repair the injury just two days ago.

Fantasy Impact: Other reports have suggested that Murray will be a game-time decision on Sunday with the final say being handed down from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones himself. With the Cowboys still playing for home field advantage in the playoffs, it wouldn’t be a shock to anyone to see Murray play, though it would be remarkable at the same time.

Murray has at least 100 yards rushing or a touchdown in all but one game this season, a Week 7 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in which the Cowboys started Brandon Weeden at quarterback.

He’s also getting hot at the right time for fantasy owners, scoring four rushing touchdowns to go with 333 rushing yards on a whopping 83 carries.

To say the least, if Murray plays on Sunday, he’s an automatic starter. If not, teammate Joseph Randle would start in Murray’s place.
