2012 Pros and Cons

(+) DeMarco is the undisputed starter/workhorse back of the team (HC Jason Garrett gave him 20+ carries five times last season, the most a Dallas RB has had since he arrived in 2007)


(+) Jerry Jones loves him, which means he’ll get every opportunity to succeed


(+) Should receive 20-25 touches per game, thus landing in the Top-10 in that category


(+) Murray is 100% recovered from his ankle injury last season and will have nothing holding him back from Day 1 on


(+) With Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Jason Witten surrounding him, defenses won’t be able to stack the box against him


(+) DeMarco has true three-down skills and could even eat into Felix Jones passing-down/third-down action


(+) Averaged 5.5 YPC on 164 carries last season, good for a Top-5 finish in the category


(+) Absolutely torched the Rams defense in Week 7 for 253 yards on 25 carries with one TD…and he didn’t even start the game!


(+) In games that Murray started, the Cowboys went 4-3. Without him starting, they went 4-5


(–) Despite his high yardage total, Murray only scored two TDs in the 13 games he played in


(–) The Cowboys Red Zone rushing attack was one of the absolute worst in the league last season


(–) Though he certainly looks good, Murray is still unproven after only one injury-shortened season

DeMarco Murray Pros & Cons - Ranked 10th

We are going to start showing pieces of what is in the Pyro Draft Kit via the NewsFeed section. So if you want to see the Pros & Cons we have for DeMarco Murray in the RB Rankings Tab, check 'em out...

Pyro's take: You can purchase the 2014 Pyro #FF Draft Kit here: http://bit.ly/1z3BwYf

(+) Just when we thought he might be dead, Demarco shows he is still a player to be reckoned with in #FF

(+) Dual threat - he had 1,125 yards rushing plus 53 receptions last season

(+) Peaks out on all the physical measurables, when healthy is a top tier player

(+) Can bust out the big plays, as his 4.9 yards per carry average indicates

(+) Jerry has stuck by him, no weapons that threaten him at the moment in Dallas

(+) He has great weapons surrounding him, so it will be difficult for defenses to key in on him

(+) The Cowboys have a nice fantasy playoff schedule

(+) In a contract year, so there will be no doubt he will lay it all on the line for the big pay day

(+/-) #28 had three games over 100 yards (134, 146, 175)

(-) Injuries have gotten in his way, missing 11 games over the past three seasons

(-) Only had three games last season where he had more than 20 carries

(-) Is not the offensive focal point on many Sundays

Murray will run through the pack, when he gets the ball

One of DeMarco Murray’s best performances in his pro career was overlooked Monday.

In Dallas’ 45-28 loss to Chicago, Murray ran for 146 yards on 18 carries, contributing two of the three biggest plays for the Cowboys.

Murray’s success was overlooked as people outside the Cowboys’ locker room kvetched about the defense’s struggles.

But after shredding Chicago’s front the Dallas running back is on pace to become the first Cowboys player to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season since Julius Jones accomplished the feat in 2006.

“I just worry about taking it one game at a time, doing whatever I can to help this team,” Murray said.

In the final three weeks, Murray figures to benefit from the addition of fullback Tyler Clutts, who was acquired Dec. 3.

Pyro's take: Murray had a fantastic game against the Bears, but for some reason the Cowboys stopped running the ball for a large chunk of the game. This is not the first time this has happened to Murray.

The Cowboys pass the ball 65% of the time. Even when Murray is running well to start a game, the offense drifts away from the run and becomes pass heavy. This should be the week that the Boys do a better job of having a health mix of run and pass.

Murray is a great start this week against a poor tackling Packer defense. If the Cowboys do stick with the run Murray will be a monster this week.

Demarco Murray injured again

An sprained MCL in his left knee during the second quarter of Dallas’ 31-16 victory over Washington knocked him out of the game. It also raised doubts about his availability in the near future and the status of the Cowboys’ ground game, which produced only 48 yards on 19 rushing attempts Sunday.

After all, it isn’t uncommon, depending on the severity, for a player to miss four to six weeks after incurring the type of injury Murray suffered Sunday.

The severity of Murray’s knee sprain is uncertain.



Pyro's take: This is yet another case of a good player who just can't stay healthy. This is a lesson in fantasy football and why you should not put your faith in these types of players as your #1 at any position. Although, the warnings were there for Murray.

He missed 6 games last season with a sprained left foot, missed most of his rookie season with a fractured right ankle, and then there are his college days. In 2007 he suffered a dislocated kneecap, followed by a hamstring injury the following season and knee issues in his final college season. It should be no surprise that Murray is on the shelf, and with his history don't expect a quick return.

Demarco Murray responds to his fumble and benching

For the first time since getting benched during the first half of Saturday night’s preseason victory over Cincinnati, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray addressed standing on the sidelines for nearly 20 minutes as the first-team offense was on the field.

The third-year starting back fumbled during the game’s second series and didn’t return until the third quarter.

“It was a little frustrating, I got to be honest,” Murray said Monday. “But I’m just trying to make plays. I’m a competitor. I wasn’t mad at any one. I wasn’t pouting on the sidelines. I wasn’t anything. I was waiting for my opportunity to get back in the game. Once my number was called, I was ready to play.”

Murray said he respects Cowboys coach Jason Garrett’s decision to replace him with Phillip Tanner, but said he didn’t need the benching to get his attention.

“I made a mistake and I can’t let that happen,” Murray said. “No one needs to motivate me. I know how to motivate myself.”

Pyro's take: Murray is a player that has failed to live up to his potential when he arrived on the scene in a big way 2 years ago. Murray has dealt with injuries and has only played in 23 games in his first 2 seasons. If Murray has problems with ball security he will see his performance effect his playing time as opposed to his health. Murray is a major risk reward player this season.
