Cowboys Fantasy Watch: DeMarco Murray Over/Under 250 Carries?

Will DeMarco Murray get the most carries of his career? DeMarco Murray is hot, trendy pick on the fantasy football market. He's even gone in the first round of some drafts although the second round is considered the "value" round for him.

DeMarco Murray Featured Back But In RBBC?

According to Jason La Canfora of cbssports.com, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said that he sees DeMarco Murray as "the leader of a committee" at running back, but he added that Murray has "bell-cow traits."Fantasy Spin:Murray is going to see plenty of touches, but the Cowboys will mix in Lance Dunbar to make sure Murray stays healthy.

But he's had a good training camp, and it continued Thursday with a nice performance against San Diego.
