Draft note
by John Paulsen
Murray will start immediately in Arizona, so the playing time will be there. He'll have Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk and a few good rookie prospects (Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler, KeeSean Johnson) to throw to, so the receiving corps isn't bad either. I use a regression model to generate a starting point for rookie quarterbacks and Murray comes in with the highest projected touchdown percentage, the highest projected yards per attempt, the third-highest projected rushing yards per game and the fourth-highest projected rushing touchdowns in the 42-player sample. His passing numbers (in the same system at Oklahoma) were eerily similar to Baker Mayfield's and Murray is a much better runner. Keep this fact in mind—since 2011, the four top scoring rookie quarterbacks were Cam Newton (706 rushing yards, 14 touchdowns), Robert Griffin III (815 yards, 7 touchdowns), Dak Prescott (282 yards, 6 touchdowns) and Russell Wilson (489 yards, 4 touchdowns), so being able to run will really help Murray’s chances to find fantasy success as a rookie. If the offensive line improves, Murray will have a shot at QB1 numbers.

ARI QB Kyler Murray - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Kyler Murray salvaged an otherwise terrible fantasy day with a rushing touchdown last week, but 163 passing yards and a pick is very concerning for fantasy owners looking toward the playoffs. Murray’s floor is high because of his work on the ground, but he doesn’t have the easiest schedule over the rest of the season, so fantasy owners should be wary of trusting him for the stretch run.

This week, he faces a Steelers defense that ranks fourth in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this season and just held the Browns to 13 points and Baker Mayfield to 196 yards. Murray should be started with caution as a QB2 or a fringe QB1 this week in a tough matchup, and fantasy owners with better options should look elsewhere if possible.
