DeMarco Murray's Updated 2013 Fantasy Outlook After Week 3
DeMarco Murray was a fantasy football savior for many an owner on Sunday, and he's someone you need to start every week from here on out.
The Dallas Cowboys featured back rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries, adding another 28 yards on three receptions against the St. Louis Rams in Week 3.
Cowboys offensive coordinator Bill Callahan has been preaching all summer long about establishing a consistent rushing attack to complement Tony Romo and the team's potent aerial attack. Unfortunately, his offense couldn't get much going the first couple of weeks.
Heading into Week 3, Callahan further emphasized the running game when talking to reporters, as noted by Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com:
We’d love to run the football...Our line is physical, but we’ve got to do a better job calling it...It’s still early on in the season to build our running game and get to where we want to go. But as we all know, talk is cheap. We’ve got to put it to action.
It's safe to say the Cowboys put it into action in Week 3, and given Murray's capabilities in the open field, this won't be the last time this year that he has a monster game.
Callahan knows that running the ball is the best way to protect Romo, and he also knows it sets up huge plays downfield in the passing game. The Cowboys will run the ball early and often this year, and Murray will have a huge season.
