Cowboys would like to use RB DeMarco Murray more as a receiver

As the competition to be the Dallas Cowboys' No. 3 wide receiver continues, the team is looking to get its lead running back, DeMarco Murray @DeMarcoMurray, more involved in the passing game.
"We'd like to be able to use him more both in the play-action situations and also as a guy who we put out into the formation, out of the backfield, and see what he can do out there," head coach Jason Garrett said Monday. "He's shown that he can do it. He just needs chances and experience at this level."

Fantasy Analysis:

I usually take stories such as this one with a grain of salt. Remember how we heard for three years that the Atlanta Falcons want to utilize Michael Turner more often as a receiver? That never panned out. However, Murray is no Turner when it comes to being a receiver. He caught 71 passes in his senior year at Oklahoma. He caught just 26 last season -- 22 from weeks 8-14. But that total should have a good chance of reaching the 40s in 2012.
