Beat: Lance Dunbar 'will have a role'

ESPN - [Full Article]

To expect Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar to exceed 50 catches might be a stretch. He caught only seven passes for 59 yards last season. There will only be so many passes to go around with Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Witten, Gavin Escobar and DeMarco Murray, who caught 53 passes for 353 yards last season.

But Dunbar will have a role.

Fantasy Impact: 

"Passing game coordinator" Scott Linehan utilized Joique Bell extensively the last two seasons in Detroit. Bell saw 132 touches in 2012 and 219 touches in 2013 as the complementary back to Mikel Leshoure (2012) and Reggie Bush (2013). Dunbar's role is expected to grow, though DeMarco Murray is more of an all-around back than either Leshoure or Bush are.
