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 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at New York Giants

Kyler Murray torched the Falcons last week. He threw for 340 yards and three touchdowns, adding 32 yards on the ground, and obtaining his second career victory. Murray has been exciting to watch and has benefited from facing poor teams in two consecutive games. His ability to run the ball and his high number of pass attempts – fifth in the league – give him considerable upside every game.

This week, Murray faces a Giants defense that ranks 27th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks and allowed a pair of rushing touchdowns to Tom Brady last week. Murray should light up this defense and is a top option in all league formats as a QB1.
