Fantasy Analysis
Season Projections
The Cardinals let supremely athletic dual-threat Murray cut it loose right away during his rookie season in Kliff Kingsbury's Air Raid offense, and Murray, the 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year, flashed plenty of promise for the future on his way to finishing as the fantasy QB9. Murray was up and down as a passer like most rookie quarterbacks and struggled on the road noticeably early in the season, but he still ranked ninth at the position in attempts (33.9 per game), which wasn't a surprise, 15th in passing yards (232.6 per contest) but a soft 23rd in touchdown strikes (1.3 per outing). His touchdown rate was a weak 3.7 percent. The Oklahoma product also ranked third at the position in carries and only Lamar Jackson (Ravens) rushed for more yards. Hindered by a terrible line, Murray absorbed a league-high (tie) 48 sacks. He finished 2019 on a strong note, powering the Cardinals offense to at least three touchdowns in eight of the team's last 11 contests. Murray looks like a strong bet for a sophomore leap thanks to a year of experience running Kingsbury's offense surging through his brain and Arizona landing the services of the elite DeAndre Hopkins. The Cardinals' top-two receivers from last season, 37-year-old Larry Fitzgerald (75 catches) and Christian Kirk (68 catches), both return, and Arizona still has high hopes for speedy Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler. Kenyan Drake is a solid receiver out of the backfield, and a reworked offensive line can only get better. Murray should find himself in plenty of shootouts since an overhauled Cardinals defense that ranked dead last in yards allowed and 28th in points allowed probably will struggle to stop anyone. Assuming Murray stays upright, assuming he and Hopkins click immediately and assuming the new-look offensive line jells quickly, Murray could sniff the top five.

Passing: 3570 Yards, 20 TD, 14 INT.
Rushing: 475 Yards, 3 TD.
