If you flipped a coin at your draft and went with McCoy over Jamaal Charles, congratulations.
DeMarco and the Cowboys offensive line are dominating right now. He has always been a stud when healthy, and right now, Murray is good to go.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Redskins can stop the run but Shady is pretty much matchup proof and is at home.
Road game vs solid Rams D but Murray has been ablaze.

Regarding the Rainey "#1 Overall" in the PPR rankings, that was an automatic thing by the ranking tool when we moved him up the standard rankings last minute Thursday Night. Sorry for the confusion (can't move him down now). Can't even edit his notes, hence why it's here.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Say as you like about Sproles taking touches, but, with 51 through two outings McCoy is still getting plenty of work and looks as shifty as always. This offense can support two useful backs.
Visions of Rams games past are dancing through Murray's owners heads this week. That and 285 rushing yards through two games.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
McCoy takes on a Washington D that allows the second fewest points to fantasy running backs, but has not face a running game as dynamic as the Eagles.
The Rams are 11th against fantasy backs, but Murray has been impressive to start the season.
