Fantasy Impact: 

DeMarco Murray's workload may be limited somewhat to avoid hits on that left hand. He should be able to run to the right effectively, though his stiff-arm in either direction may not be available. When he runs to the left, he may have to carry the ball in his right hand, increasing the likelihood of a fumble. The defense will certainly be aware of his injury and try to force a fumble. The Cowboys would be wise to utilize Joseph Randle a bit more in the running game and especially Lance Dunbar in the passing game since Murray's ability to catch the ball may be somewhat limited. But if he's active, he's pretty much a must-start given his production this season and the favorable matchup against Indianapolis (#21 in RB aFPA).
