DeMarco Murray: Strong Week 1 Effort Staff

Update: Murray (wrist) had 20 carries for 131 yards and also caught two passes for nine yards Wednesday against the Giants.

Recommendation: Murray has held in check for the first half, but exploded in the second with powerful run after powerful run, bullying over people in the process. Although he did not hit pay dirt, he established a clear-cut role as Dallas' lead running back, with Felix Jones barely sniffing the ball (two targets) and Lawrence Vickers getting the only other carry in the game.
