Draft note
by John Paulsen
Murray injured his shoulder in Week 9 after the Cardinals’ Week 8 bye. Through the first seven weeks, he was the No. 1 fantasy quarterback and had the second-highest per game average behind Russell Wilson, who was still being allowed to cook at that point in the season. Murray posted 283/3 in his injury game against the Dolphins (adding 106/1 as a runner) and didn’t miss a snap. He posted good fantasy numbers in the next two games, but struggled against the Patriots and the Rams in Week 12 and Week 13. He was knocked out of Week 17, and when that game is removed, he posted the second-most fantasy points through Week 16. The Cardinals have likely lost Larry Fitzgerald, but they added Rondale Moore in the draft and A.J. Green in free agency.

ARI QB Kyler Murray - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Kyler Murray started his MVP campaign with a flourish in a 38-13 dismantling of the Tennessee Titans in Week 1. Murray had 289 yards, four touchdowns and a pick throwing the ball, and added 20 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Murray looks like he’s poised for a phenomenal season and should be a “set-it-and-forget-it” quarterback all year.

Murray doesn’t have a great matchup on paper against a Vikings defense that ranked 10th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks last season. However, Minnesota has struggled in the secondary, and gave up a couple of touchdown passes to Joe Burrow last week. Regardless of matchup, you’re starting Murray anyway, as his potential on the ground, and pass-happy system give him a high floor and a high ceiling every game. Start him as an elite option in Week 2.
