DeMarco Murray finished with 28 touches in Week 1 against the Giants, as he rushed for 86 yards and added another 39 in the passing game. Murray said this week that he knows the Cowboys "want to run it more," which could mean more carries for him in Week 2.
Dallas faces a Kansas City defense that ranked towards the bottom of the league in 2012. The Chiefs only allowed 71 rushing yards in Week 1 against the Jaguars.
Fantasy impact: The Cowboys are likely wanting to get Murray the ball as much as possible before he gets hurt. The No. 1 back looked good in the season opener, and he has a good chance at finding the end zone in Week 2.
Owners should continue starting Murray while they can. He has the talent to be one of the top running backs in fantasy. His health is the only thing that ever holds him back.
