Lance Dunbar injury update: fantasy value still floundering despite foot issue

Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar (foot) is listed as probable to face the Chiefs on Sunday. He was a full participant in practice all week and will play.

He didn't see any action and was ruled out for Week 1's game on Friday, September 6 due to a foot sprain. DeMarco Murray saw 20 of the 21 carries from the running backs on Sunday with Phillip Tanner seeing the other one. Dunbar was quiet in his first season in 2012, averaging just 3.6 yards per carry on 21 rushes to go with six receptions in 12 games.

Fantasy impact: It's going to be the DeMarco Murray show until he inevitably gets hurt. That said, Dunbar had a strong preseason and could have the inside track to be Murray's primary backup. He is an adept player out of the backfield, but his lack of skills between the tackles could be costly. He's more of a handcuff in 14-team leagues for owners that missed the boat badly on backs.
