Week 7 Fantasy / Betting: DeMarco Murray, Michael Vick Out, Gronkowski Back

The Cowboys and Eagles kick off in the early slot, so set those Fantasy lineups, put your bets in, then sit back and enjoy!

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The biggest "Fan's Corner" news surrounding Dallas at Philly is that DeMarco Murray will sit out today's game. Despite missing most of last week's game, Murray is Yahoo! Sports ninth-ranked running back on the season. The reins will be handed over to Joseph Randle. While Randle is an adept pass catcher, his shortcomings as a pass blocker could mean that Dallas chooses to roll with more empty backfields in an effort to spread out the Eagles defense.

Randle ranks as CBS Sports' 20th rated runner today.

The other big news is that Michael Vick is out for today's game. Ironically, this probably boosts the value of Philadelphia's threats; LeSean McCoy is probably now the top rated play in most leagues (sharing the spotlight with Dallas' Dez Bryant) and a player such as Riley Cooper makes plenty of sense as a WR3 or Flex play.

Fantasy Fix

Here's a look at some great Fantasy Resources for you entering Week 6.

  • Injury Updates, via Rotoworld
  • * DeMarco Murray (knee) is listed as doubtful and will not play. Joseph Randle will get the start and be the main back because Lance Dunbar (hamstring) is also out this week.

    * DeMarcus Ware (thigh) didn’t practice this week and is considered doubtful. Upgrade the Eagles’ offense.

    * Miles Austin (hamstring) didn’t practice Thursday or Friday to help rest his hamstring, but he is considered probable and will play. Expect Terrance Williams to still be the #2 wide receiver.

    * Michael Vick (hamstring) said he isn’t playing this week. He did practice and is listed as questionable, but I think we can take Vick at his word here.

  • Other major injury news: Gronk is back. Roddy White is out. Danny Amendola, EJ Manuel, too. Justin Blackmon is playing, most likely so is Eddie Royal. Calvin Johnson has practiced all week. Jake Locker looks like he's starting. Matt Schaub is out.
  • Jaimey Eisenberg's Start'Em or Sit'Em (CBS Sports)
  • Sunday Morning Report (Weather, complete injury reports)
  • Weather Forecast: Clear. High of 63F. Winds from the WNW at 10 to 15 mph.
  • Yahoo! Week 7 Rankings: QB | RB | WR | TE | D/ST | K
  • Romo: 2nd, Randle: 24th, Dez: 1st, T.Williams: 31st, Witten: 5th, Dallas D 17th, Bailey: 3rd
  • CBS Top 150 Flex PPR Rankings
  • Every Sunday morning you can check the live chat War Room at SB Nation Fantasy. We strongly recommend you head over there if you have any questions about who to start/sit or injuries for today's games.
