Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Murray's Week 16 status an issue

However, this is of course still fantasy football, and this Sunday does not come without uncertainties. The biggest news of the week is whether or not Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray will play after having hand surgery due to a broken bone this week. Murray has had a career season, rushing for 1,687 yards and 11 touchdowns and certainly helping his fantasy owners. The Cowboys play the Colts at 4:25 p.m. ET in Week 16, so owners may need to make a decision on starting him before he's officially ruled in or out.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman was ruled out against the Jets due to a concussion. Broncos QB Peyton Manning has been hampered by a thigh injury this week, so owners probably shouldn't depend on his usual amount of production. Falcons WR Julio Jones has been struggling with a hip injury, and will likely be a gametime decision against the Saints. The Bears benched QB Jay Cutler after a brutal performance against the Saints on Monday Night Football; it's unlikely that someone playing in the fantasy football championship had been riding him all season, but you never know.
