Fantasy Analysis
Week 14 Projections
Kyler Murray was dreadful in Week 13 completing just 19 of 34 passes for 163 yards and an interception, though he did manage to save face somewhat by adding 28 yards and a touchdown on the ground. While some may point to the fact Murray popped up on last week's injury report with a hamstring, the Cardinals' offensive lime simply had no answer for the Rams' pass rush, as the rookie quarterback was sacked 6 times, and spent most the afternoon avoiding pressure. This Sunday's matchup with the Steelers (third in the NFL with 43 sacks) presents a major issue if the Cardinals can't get their pass blocking issues sorting out, thus making Murray a major risk from a fantasy standpoint.
Passing: 193 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 34 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Unless Murray absolutely implodes in the preseason - which seems very unlikely - the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 draft will draw the Week 1 starting nod for the Cardinals. During his lone season as a full-time starter at Oklahoma, the ultra-dangerous dual-threat Murray connected on 69 percent of his passes for 4,361 yards and a 42:7 TD-to-INT ratio, and, flashing nice mobility and athleticism, racked up a mind-blowing 1,001 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on 140 carries (7.2 YPC). While Murray is undersized by NFL standards, he has a cannon of an arm (11.6 yards per attempt in 2018), a lightning-quick release and the ability to make all the throws. Murray is poised for some high-volume passing in head coach/offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury's wide open "Air Raid" spread attack. Arizona's collection of playmakers, which includes David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, breakout candidate Christian Kirk and electric rookies Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler, is a bit thin and heavy on unproven guys. Murray sometimes will have to do a Houdini act while operating behind an overhauled line that's still considered one of the NFL's worst, which is why top-10 quarterback rushing production from him is realistic. Even with typical rookie hot and cold passing performances likely, Murray should offer solid fantasy backup value at the very least.

Passing: 829 Yards, 6 TD, 2 INT.
Rushing: 126 Yards, 3 TD.
