DeMarco Murray's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 13

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IINovember 28, 2013

The Dallas Cowboys came up with a huge win over the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, and DeMarco Murray was a big reason for that.

A 31-24 win over the Raiders keeps the Cowboys on top of the NFC East, and Murray had a huge fantasy performance in the game.  He finished with 63 yards on 17 carries, running it in for three touchdowns, although he could have had another if not for a holding penalty.  In ESPN's standard scoring leagues, he finished with 27 fantasy points.

While he has been banged up this year, it certainly hasn't slowed down Murray when he's had to play.  Heading into Thursday, he already had 634 yards and four touchdowns on the ground, adding another 229 receiving yards in just nine games played.

It has certainly been a nice stretch for Murray.  This is his third consecutive double-digit performance and his fifth in the last six games with at least one carry.  His biggest game came back in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams, but he now has an even more impressive performance.

With the consistent production from Murray when healthy, he's certainly worth a low-end RB1 or very solid RB2 in all fantasy leagues.  With four remaining games against some incredibly weak defenses, Murray should have some more big outings just in time for fantasy playoffs.
