2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Cardinals are all in on Kyler Murray. They made the Heisman Trophy winner this year's top draft pick and already named him the starter. New coach Kliff Kingsbury said he'll tailor his air raid offense around Murray, who shouldn't face too steep of a learning curve after he excelled in Oklahoma's spread attack, joining Deshaun Watson as the only quarterbacks in FBS history with 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season. Murray has a strong arm, quick release and first-rate elusiveness - he was sacked on just 4.5 percent of his dropbacks last season. Height is his only issue, but it's a big one. At 5-10 1/8, he's the shortest quarterback drafted in the first round since 1953. He's also shorter than Russell Wilson, who despite all his success has trouble seeing over linemen at times. The Cardinals are betting that, like Wilson, Murray can overcome it with exceptional athleticism - he was picked ninth overall in the 2018 MLB Draft - and instinctive playmaking skills. He'll be surrounded by physically gifted receivers with spread-offense experience. Second-round pick Andy Isabella ran a 4.31 40 at the combine, and Christian Kirk played in the air raid at Texas Tech. Murray also has Larry Fitzgerald working the slot and an excellent receiver out of the backfield in David Johnson. The biggest question is how well the air raid offense will work in the NFL.

Eclipses 300-yard mark in loss
QBArizona Cardinals
November 10, 2019
Murray completed 27 of 44 passes for 324 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Cardinals' 30-27 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed three times for 38 yards.
ANALYSIS
Murray put together the fourth 300-yard effort of his nascent career in the close loss, and he had the Cardinals in the game until the very last play, a last-gasp heave in which Arizona tried to argue for pass interference. Murray had his connection with Christian Kirk in top form, as he hit the second-year wideout for touchdown passes of 33, 69 and 15 yards during the contest. The 2019 first overall pick has multiple touchdown passes in back-to-back games after a five-game stretch where he failed to notch any scoring throws in four contests. Murray will look to continue his development in the fantasy-friendly air raid offense in a Week 11 rematch versus the 49ers.
