Joseph Randle ahead of Ryan Williams for now
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Cowboys will go into the season with DeMarco Murray as the starting running back and Lance Dunbar being used as a specialist, reports ESPN.

But Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams are competing for the No. 3 job, and Randle "has the inside track." The report also says Randle "would likely take over the every-down role if something were to happen to Murray."

DeMarco Murray ready for big workload, but will he get it?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray told Fox Sports he can handle 300 carries if necessary. "If they decide to do that with me, of course," Murray said. "Whatever they decide to do with me, I think I can handle it."

Murray ran 217 times in 14 games last year, the biggest workload of his three-year career. If he stays healthy, he's a lock to approach 250 carries. Play caller Scott Linehan is in love with the passing game but has said he'll lean on Murray in 2014.

For his part, Murray said he's learning how to stay healthy -- and stay on the field.

"You just have to take care of your body and know when to go and fight for that extra yard or inch and know when not to," he said. "That's something about just being a smarter football player in general and knowing when you're helping your team and when you're hurting your team."

Brandon Weeden moves up to No. 2
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With the Cowboys' release of Kyle Orton, Brandon Weeden will enter the season as the backup quarterback behind Tony Romo. Weeden went 0-5 as a starter last year with the Browns, throwing nine touchdowns and nine interceptions.

But Dallas coaches have been impressed with Weeden, who took all the first-team reps during OTAs and minicamp while Romo recovered from back surgery.
