Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) did not practice Wednesday. Murray participated in individual drills, though the official report says that he didn’t practice. Given his return, even in a limited fashion, it looks as if Murray is on track to play in Week 16. His workload may be limited somewhat to avoid hits on that left hand, but he should be out there for fantasy owners. He should also 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 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.
