ARI QB Kyler Murray - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Dallas Cowboys
Kyler Murray had 245 yards and a touchdown against the Colts last week, but added 74 yards on the ground, turning in an overall positive fantasy outing. Murray has just four touchdown passes and four picks over his last five games – also two rushing touchdowns – after throwing for 17 touchdowns in his first seven games. Maybe he’s not playing 100% or defenses are figuring out this offense, but he’s definitely lacking the consistent fantasy punch we all got used to in September and October.
This week, Murray faces a Cowboys defense that ranks ninth in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. It’s risky to trust him against this defense with how the Cardinals have been playing lately, but as we saw last week, it only takes one great rushing play for Murray to turn in a QB1 fantasy performance. Start him.
