2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
When he's on top of his game, Murray is one of the league's preeminent dual threats, which in turn makes him a potential top fantasy producer. At 5-foot-10, 207 pounds, the diminutive QB has shown a tendency to fade down the stretch over his first three seasons. These winter swoons tend to begin with some sort of injury -- in 2020, it was his shoulder, and last year an ankle -- so it's fair to have some level of concern about his durability despite missing just three games in his career.

While there are quarterbacks out there capable of delivering enough value with their arm that their running is just a bonus (e.g., Josh Allen, Justin Herbert, Patrick Mahomes), Murray is more in line with Lamar Jackson where running is vital to their QB1 fantasy status. Unfortunately, Murray hasn't been used the same since he suffered the shoulder injury against Seattle in November 2020, going from almost 10 carries per game over that season's first nine games to just 5.8 rushes per contest in the 23 games since.

On the plus side, the Cardinals made some moves to fortify the passing game, adding former college teammate Marquise Brown from the Ravens to join a receiving corps that already featured DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green, and drafting Trey McBride in the second round to potentially give Murray three quality tight ends to work with. While he'll be without Hopkins during his suspension, the hope for fantasy owners is that gains in the passing game help offset Murray's downturn in running.

Murray is absolutely a top-10 fantasy quarterback, but he's arguably the most volatile one apart from perhaps Jalen Hurts. As such you'll need to balance his top-three upside against what have been lengthy stretches of QB2 play over the past two seasons.

News From The Past 90 Days
Cardinals, Kyler Murray agree on five-year extension
$160 million in guaranteed money
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jul 22, 12:33 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals star Kyler Murray has agreed to a five-year extension making him one of the NFL's highest-paid quarterbacks. The deal, which runs through the 2028 season, includes $160 million in guaranteed money, the source told Schefter. The Cardinals officially announced Murray's five-year extension Thursday but did not disclose terms. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Murray made it known publicly this off-season that he wanted a long-term deal from the Cardinals and after the usual nonsense and predictable quotes, a deal has been struck. The Arizona QB will miss his top receiving option, DeAndre Hopkins for six weeks but does get some help in the form of Marquise Brown. He's currently hovering around the QB6 range in ADP.


Kyler Murray won't attend OTAs, as expected
Contract negotiations quiet for now
By: Mike Krueger | Mon May 23, 11:53 am

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals’ QB Kyler Murray will not be at Arizona’s OTAs this week, as expected. All continues to remain quiet on his contract front, for now. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray's played social media games this off-season while team has denied trade rumors. The likely result is Murray getting a long-term deal with Arizona before the season begins. He'll be a safe mid-range QB1 in redraft leagues.
