DeMarco Murray: Week 16 Fantasy Outlook

Bleacher Report AdministratorSenior Analyst IIDecember 17, 2013

It's the playoffs, perhaps even championship week for most leagues. Don't get cute. Don't bench Murray against the Redskins on Sunday, no matter who your other options are. He is a dynamic pass catcher out of the backfield, and has been churning up yardage on the ground as well since his return from injury. He is a lock for 20 touches, and you can bet the Cowboys won't abandon the run again like they did last week against the Packers.
Murray went over the 100-yard mark for the second-straight game against Green Bay, and has scored four times in the last three games. Murray is averaging a stellar 5.5 yards per carry, and will still cross the 1,000-yard rushing plateau despite missing time due to the aforementioned knee ailment. He is a fantasy stud when healthy, and should be deployed in all formats.
