Fantasy: DeMarco Murray 1st RB in history to open season with 7 straight 100-yard games

Oct 19, 6:55 PM

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray made history Sunday, becoming the first player in NFL history to start a season with seven straight games with at least 100 yards rushing.

Murray entered the game tied with the great Jim Brown for the record. 

Unsurprisingly, Murray's accomplishment has made him the top-scoring non-quarterback in fantasy football this season. He leads Le'Veon Bell by more than 200 yards in the race for the rushing title.

Can Murray keep up his historic pace? His injury history strongly indicates the answer is no. Murray has battled various ailments throughout his four-year career, never playing a full slate of 16 games. 

Murray's career high in rushing attempts is 217, set last season. He's on pace for over 400 carries this year.
