2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
When he's on top of his game, Murray is one of the league's preeminent dual threats, which in turn makes him a potential top fantasy producer. At 5-foot-10, 207 pounds, the diminutive QB has shown a tendency to fade down the stretch over his first three seasons. These winter swoons tend to begin with some sort of injury -- in 2020, it was his shoulder, and last year an ankle -- so it's fair to have some level of concern about his durability despite missing just three games in his career.

While there are quarterbacks out there capable of delivering enough value with their arm that their running is just a bonus (e.g., Josh Allen, Justin Herbert, Patrick Mahomes), Murray is more in line with Lamar Jackson where running is vital to their QB1 fantasy status. Unfortunately, Murray hasn't been used the same since he suffered the shoulder injury against Seattle in November 2020, going from almost 10 carries per game over that season's first nine games to just 5.8 rushes per contest in the 23 games since.

On the plus side, the Cardinals made some moves to fortify the passing game, adding former college teammate Marquise Brown from the Ravens to join a receiving corps that already featured DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green, and drafting Trey McBride in the second round to potentially give Murray three quality tight ends to work with. While he'll be without Hopkins during his suspension, the hope for fantasy owners is that gains in the passing game help offset Murray's downturn in running.

Murray is absolutely a top-10 fantasy quarterback, but he's arguably the most volatile one apart from perhaps Jalen Hurts. As such you'll need to balance his top-three upside against what have been lengthy stretches of QB2 play over the past two seasons.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rondale Moore Out, Greg Dortch gametime decision
Dortch missed practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 25, 4:02 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury updates: - “looks that way” for Kyler Murray to start - Humphries, Murphy are out - Greg Dortch is a game day decision - Marquise Brown is expected to play Sunday (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rondale Moore is going to miss with his hamstring injury but his replacement, Greg Dortch, who missed practice all week with a thumb injury but is listed as Questionable to play. He would be a fine PPR option if in fact he does play, but it's very curious for him not to even participate in practice this week. We're also waiting on word whether or not Hollywood Brown will be on a snap count.


Injury Kyler Murray making good progress
Hamstring injury has sidelined QB over last two games
By: Doug Orth | Tue Nov 22, 11:50 pm

Arizona Cardinals
AZCardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said QB Kyler Murray has progressed "quite a bit." The head coach added he knows K1 is a competitor and wanted to be out there last night. Still, it's all about the QB being "full throttle" before he returns to action. (Tyler Drake on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds as though at this point the only thing holding Kingsbury back might be the team's Week 13 bye. Colt McCoy has done an acceptable job filling in for Murray, but it becomes obvious whenever Murray misses a few games how much Arizona misses his ability to create something out of nothing. When Murray returns to action - be it Week 12 or Week 14 - he should go right back to being considered a near must-start.


Injury Colt McCoy expected to start at QB for Arizona
Kyler Murray out with hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 21, 8:30 am

Arizona Cardinals
For the second straight week, Colt McCoy appears set to start for the #AZCardinals, sources say. With QB Kyler Murray still dealing with a hamstring injury and limited all week, McCoy is good to go. The veteran hopes to replicate last week when he was 26 of 36 for 238 with a TD. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray will sit another week as he deals with a hamstring injury. Arizona faces the Chargers in Week 12 and then has a bye in Week 13. The 49ers aren't the best matchup for McCoy, allowing the 7th fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks.


Injury Kyler Murray will be a gametime decision
“Progressing” with his hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 18, 2:00 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is “progressing” with his hamstring injury and has “come a long way,” coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday. Murray will be another game-time decision. (Josh Weinfuss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray missed last week and has been limited in practice this week with a hamstring injury. The Cardinals play Monday night putting fantasy owners in a bind unless we get a better indication of his status before kickoff on Sunday. Colt McCoy would get the start against the 49ers if Murray can't go.


Injury Colt McCoy and John Wolford to start for Cardinals and Rams?
Both backup QBs could start in Week 10
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 13, 7:00 am

Arizona Cardinals
Colt McCoy and John Wolford very well could end up squaring off Sunday in a battle of backup QBs thrust into starting roles. But before that becomes official, the Cardinals and Rams would like to give their starters a final chance to see if they can play. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Another late-afternoon game with injury concerns. Both Kyler Murray (hamstring) and Matthew Stafford (concussion) are gametime decisions that are probably on the wrong side of questionable. Stafford wasn't placed in the concussion protocol until Tuesday making it difficult for him to get cleared in time for today's game.


Injury Rondale Moore injures hamstring in practice Thursday
Will have an MRI
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 8, 4:41 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals wide receiver Rondale Moore injured his hamstring today during practice, per a league source, is going to have further examination, including an MRI to determine severity of injury. Cardinals already playing without DeAndre Hopkins due to suspension (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Doesn't sound great for his availability against the Chiefs in Week 1. Already down Hopkins and with tight end Zach Ertz dealing with a calf issue, the Cardinals and Kyler Murray are going to be searching for receiving options on Sunday. Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Antoine Wesley are next up on the depth chart
