Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is the real deal. He is averaging over 6 yards per carry and was described by the Seahawks postgame show as "explosive, electric, and the real deal". The Seahawks analysts were smitten with Murray, who put up a huge game without reaching the endzone. Murray got his chance with the Felix Jones high ankle sprain and has maximized his opportunity. The high ankle sprain can be devastating for a running back, but even if Jones gets healthy I don't see him getting the starting job back. DeMarco is the man. They have to give him the ball. If every fantasy league re-drafted today for the rest of this season, Murray has to be a top 20 pick. Congrats to anyone who scooped him up early. Any Felix Jones owner who did not pick up Murray after the Jones injury dropped the ball.
In one of my 16 team leagues, Murray was still available after his 250 yard game two weeks ago. We got him in the waiver draft and now it looks like we have finally replaced the fallen Jamaal Charles.
