Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray practiced Wednesday and told reporters he will be "good" for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Murray left late in Week 16 after injuring his leg but all of the reports out of Arizona have suggested it is something he can play through, especially with the Cardinals fighting for their playoff lives in Week 17. The fact that Murray is practicing on Wednesday confirm those suggestions and we should expect Murray under center against the shorthanded Rams come Sunday.
ARI QB Kyler Murray - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Los Angeles Rams
Kyler Murray and the rest of the offense struggled against the 49ers last week, and he wound up with just 247 passing yards and an interception, despite throwing the ball a season-high 50 times. At least he rushed for 75 yards, salvaging an otherwise disappointing day for fantasy owners. Murray has a leg issue, but the team is hopeful he’ll play.
The Rams are a tough opponent. Second in the league with 49 sacks, they rank first in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. If Murray starts, he’s hard to sit, but with the injury and the matchup, it might be a good idea for fantasy owners to look elsewhere, if they have a viable option. Murray has looked rough when injured, and if he loses his ground production, his floor gets much lower.
