DeMarco Murray, dinged in Baltimore (USP)

DeMarco Murray looked mostly terrific in Week 6, rushing 15 times for 97 yards, adding one catch for four. Nonetheless, Murray's fantasy owners are a frustrated lot, again.

First, Felix Jones poached an early touchdown, just one play after Murray had broken off a 28-yard run. Then, late in the first half, Murray suffered a foot sprain. He's barely been a rumor since the break.

The Ravens defense has been shredded by Dallas' rushing attack thus far, particularly on the edges. Murrayhas those 97 yards, Felix gained 89 on his first 17 carries, Phillip Tanner has added 25, and fourth-stringer Lance Dunbar carried once for 11.

It seems like a good sign that Murray attempted to return in the third quarter against Baltimore, but it's obviously a bad sign that he couldn't remain in the game. We're all awaiting the post-game word on DeMarco, but it appears that Felix will be a popular waiver add in Week 7.

Yup: Felix. Yikes.

Dallas' ground game has an excellent match-up next Sunday (at Carolina), so someone is likely to put up a big number.
