Coach: DeMarco Murray has 'scratched the surface'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cowboys running backs coach Gary Brown is staunchly in the corner of running back DeMarco Murray, saying that last year was just the beginning of big things from him. 

"He's just scratched the surface," Brown told the official team website. "I think he's one of the better backs in the league -- he just has to go out and prove it now. People now know his name, he's been in the Pro Bowl -- people are going to know who he is. So now it's more of a challenge to go out and play well, and I think he's going to go out and take that challenge full force and have another good season."

Brown added that spending another year in coach Bill Callahan's system that helped him in the second half of the 2012 season will pay off. 

Murray finished last year as a Top 10 Fantasy running back and hit 10-plus Fantasy points in six of his last seven games. His injury history is enough to make some squeamish about taking him as a first-round pick but the reality is that he will get enough touches and yardage when healthy to be considered a No. 1 Fantasy running back. Expect his name to be called among the first 15 on Draft Day.

DeMarco Murray picks up bonus money
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

As he enters the final year of his rookie deal, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray triggered an escalator clause in his contract and will earn nearly $1.4 million in 2014.

ESPN noted the salary surplus, earned because he hit a "proven performance escalator" for being on the field for at least 35 percent of the snaps in three seasons, a standard clause in any player's contract who was drafted in Round 3 or later. 

Murray rushed for 1,121 yards and nine touchdowns and added 350 yards on 53 catches with a score. All of the numbers were career-highs for Murray, who played in a career-high 14 games. Murray will be in a contract year in 2014.

DeMarco Murray shouldn't worry about workload
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Joique Bell said Cowboys fans shouldn't worry about whether DeMarco Murray will get the ball next season, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Though Scott Linehan may be thought of as a pass-happy coach, Bell said that's not the case. "We started running the ball a little more this year," Bell said. "From the beginning of the season to the end of the season, [Linehan] was committed to the run, and as long as you're producing." Bell did admit that when the running game didn't work, Linehan would go away from it. When asked whether Murray will get carries, Bell responded by saying, "he doesn't have to be worried. "If he produces, he's going to run the ball."

Owner expresses some concern about DeMarco Murray
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expressed some concern about running back DeMarco Murray's injury history, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Murray was recently announced as a Pro Bowl replacement, causing owner Jerry Jones to express some caution. Jones said he was "troubled" by Murray's injury history. Jones expressed that though he's nervous about Murray's penchant for injuries, he doesn't see the team addressing the position this offseason. Murray missed two games this season, but has missed 11 games over his career.
