1. DeMarco Murray shouldn't slow down much Jerry Jones said Tuesday that DeMarco Murray would remain Dallas' top runner even upon the return of Felix Jones, who missed four games with a high ankle sprain. With 682 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns over those four games, boasting a robust rushing 8.0 yards per carry, Murray's performance left the Cowboys with no alternative. My incorrect initial pessimism regarding Murray's fantasy potential was based more on skepticism of his offensive line and Dallas personnel management than Murray's talent level - he was my fourth-ranked runner in the 2011 draft and a player I thought would go in the first 50 picks.

DeMarco Murray's Had a Lot of Help

Cowboys a more complete team than Giants

DALLAS As of this moment, the Dallas Cowboys have the upper hand in the NFC East. And yes, I realize the New York Giants technically hold a one-game lead based on their 6-3 record. At worst, the Cowboys (5-4) should be in a tie for first in the division when they host the Giants on Dec. 11. The schedule makers were incredibly kind to the Cowboys during the holiday season. They...
