Murray is the chosen one this season. Someone get Eddie Murphy on the phone! I don't know if he can sustain the amount of touches he's receiving but the Cowboys will go as far as his legs will carry them.
Expect the Seahawks to go back to what makes them so dangerous, Lynch. He should see the rock 20+ times against the Rams and once again make Russell Wilson the most dangerous play-action QB in the league again.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Six straight games with 100+ yards. Impossible to suddenly bet against him at home vs Giants.
Rams run D actually solid right now but Lynch should run mad after being forgotten last week.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Murray has been the best fantasy back in football and should continue to post 100-yard games behind the best offensive line in football.
The Rams are 7th against fantasy running backs, but Lynch is still a low RB1 to high RB2 in a tough matchup.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Not loving the injuries we're seeing to Dallas' o-line, a big part of Murray's success, but against NYG allowing 23.07 FPPG to RBs how can you go anywhere else?
