News: Murray continued his red-hot start with 24 carries for 149 yards and two TDs in Sunday's win against the Saints. Impact: Murray has a wide lead for the rushing title after four weeks with 534 yards on 99 carries. The next closest back is Le'Veon Bell with 378 yards. The best part for fantasy owners? The Cowboys have shown a commitment to the run as Murray also leads the league with 99 carries.(STATS, 1:19pm)

News: On Sunday, Murray joined Jim Brown, O.J. Simpson, and Emmitt Smith as the only backs in NFL history to begin a season with four straight games in which they rushed for 100 or more yards and scored one or more touchdowns. Impact: That's what you would call "exalted company" for a running back. Brown actually had a streak of six straight games in 1958, while Simpson managed five straight in 1975. Murray will have an excellent chance of matching Simpson's streak next week against a fairly porous Texans rush defense.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray had 24 carries for 149 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-17 win over the Saints, adding one reception for six yards on his only target. Impact: Murray has at least 22 carries, 100 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in each of his first four contests, and Sunday's performance ended his three-game streak of losing a fumble. Not only has he done an excellent job with the ball in his hands, but also the Dallas offensive line looks fantastic. It's a tough combo for opponents, as evidenced by Murray's ridiculous start to the season. He's on pace for 396 carries for 2,136 yards and 20 rushing touchdowns, and while he doesn't figure to reach those numbers, he's the clear favorite to lead the NFL in rushing. Next week, Murray gets a home matchup with the Houston Texans, a team that's allowed 5.0 yards per carry through four games.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray ran for 100 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's wild 34-31 win at St. Louis. Impact: Fantasy owners couldn't ask for more from Murray, who has now reached 100 yards and scored in each of the first three games. He could easily finish as this year's No. 1 RB if he can stay healthy.(STATS, 4:06pm)

News: Murray ran for 100 yards on 24 carries with a touchdown and caught 4-of-4 targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 34-31 comeback win at St. Louis. Impact: The entire Dallas offense got off to a slow start, trailing 21-0 in the second quarter, but Murray got them on the board with his short touchdown run a few minutes before halftime. He's playing like one of the best running backs in all of football, although ball security has been a major problem, as he lost another fumble Sunday (third straight game).(RotoWire, )

News: Murray ran for 167 yards and a touchdown as the Dallas Cowboys avoided an 0-2 start with a 26-10 win over Tennessee on Sunday. Impact: Murray has an NFL-best 285 yards and two touchdowns on 51 carries in his first two games, but he has also fumbled once in each contest.(STATS, 01:47am)
