Cards WR Larry Fitzgerald impressed by QB Kyler Murray

Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley told "The Dan Patrick Show" in March that Kyler Murray was "a tremendous leader" a sentiment Larry Fitzgerald concurs.

Fitzgerald was impressed by Murray's immediate confidence with the Cardinals during their three-day minicamp in June.

"I know him running Lincoln Riley's offense (at Oklahoma) is very similar to what Coach Kliff Kingsbury runs, but on the first day he's calling audibles and getting us in plays that are favorable to the offense," Fitzgerald told SI. "So I was really impressed by his ability to take a leadership position first day at offense. I was impressed with how smart he is, how determined he is. His future is extremely bright."

Fantasy Impact: 

Murray said he probably knows the system better than anyone on the Cardinals right now, but added that's his job. Fitz mentioned Murray makes the audibles quickly, and once the players adjust, the offense will run faster. Murray is already a top-10 QB in our rankings coming in 10th and we obviously think he has a shot to put up QB1 numbers in his first season.
