Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray completed 19-of-34 passes for 137 yards and two interceptions in Monday night's 34-11 Wild-Card Round loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He also threw for a successful two-point conversion. He looked rattled against the Rams and was 4-of-12 for 22 yards and an interception while under pressure. The 24-year-old threw a pick-six while inside their own four-yard line and later picked off again during Arizona's next offensive drive. Despite the abysmal performance in Monday's playoff loss, Murray did have a successful 2021 season. He threw for 3,787 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions while rushing for 423 yards and five scores in 14 games. The former No.1 overall pick will be a low-end QB1 heading into 2022 fantasy drafts.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will enjoy a terrific matchup to conclude the 2021 regular season Sunday when he squares off with the Seahawks' defense. Murray, named to his second consecutive Pro Bowl, missed the first meeting between the two teams, but he will have the advantage of facing a pass defense that has yielded 270.4 yards per game this season, the second-highest mark in the league. While touchdowns have been finicky to come by as he acclimates to life without DeAndre Hopkins (knee) for the time being, Murray has stockpiled yardage by averaging 287 passing and 45.5 rushing yards over his last four games. Add to the mix that running back Chase Edmonds (ribs) has been ruled out -- with James Conner (heel) up in the air as well -- and Arizona could be tasked with putting the ball in Murray's hands with a greater frequency as it eyes an NFC West title.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray delivered for his fantasy managers in Week 17. Murray finished the game 26 of 38 for 263 yards and two touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys. Murray also chipped in 44 yards rushing, second only to running back Chase Edmonds. With fantasy championships on the line, managers who spent an early draft pick on Murray were rewarded with the QB6 going into Sunday night. Facing the fifth toughest defense against opposing quarterbacks, Murray proved that he is one of the elite options at the position. He should once again be among the top five quarterbacks taken in 2022 drafts.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray enters the Week 17 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys as the QB11 on the season despite missing three games due to injury. Dallas is one of the toughest matchups for quarterbacks this season, as they've given up the fifth-fewest points to opposing signal-callers. Even against a stout defense like the Cowboys, Murray is still projected as a QB1 with the safe rushing floor that he provides. In a game with the highest projected point total of the Week and a banged-up running back James Conner, Arizona may have to rely on Murray and the passing game in this one.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray completed 27 of 43 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown in a 22-16 loss to the Indianapolis Colts Saturday night. Murray also led the team in rushing with 74 yards on just 4 carries. While the Arizona team is struggling with their third loss in a row, fantasy managers will take the overall passing and rushing production from Murray. Murray entered Week 16 as the QB9 on the season despite missing three games due to injury in 2021. For fantasy managers still alive in Week 17, there are few options better at the position than Murray, even against a Dallas Cowboys defense ranked 6th against opposing quarterbacks.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray and the rest of the team are coming off a game that they would rather put behind them. In a stunning loss to the Detroit Lions, Murray had his second-worst fantasy performance of the season. The matchup in Week 16 won't help, with the Indianapolis Colts coming to town. The Colts defense is giving up the fifth-fewest points per game to running backs while giving up the ninth-most to opposing quarterbacks, perhaps setting Murray up for a bounce-back game. Murray is currently QB6 on a points per game basis and should once again be considered a high-end QB1 in Week 16.
In a bizarre Week 15, perhaps the most surprising was the performance of Kyler Murray and the rest of the Arizona Cardinals. Despite being a double-digit favorite over the Detroit Lions, Arizona was never close in this one. After falling behind 17-0 at halftime, Murray and the Cardinals were forced to abandon the run in the second half. Murray ended the day with a decent statistical passing day, completing 23 of 41 passes for 257 yards and a touchdown. But fantasy managers had to be disappointed with the three total rushing yards from Murray. This game was one that Murray and the rest of the team will want to forget about and move on. Things won't get any easier in Week 16 as Arizona takes on the Indianapolis Colts.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, despite missing three games due to injury, is currently the QB12 on the season. His 26.4 points per game rank fourth in the league, making Murray one of the elite options at the position, regardless of the matchup. Luckily for fantasy managers, in Week 15 Murray takes on the Detroit Lions in what is the first round of the fantasy playoffs in most formats. As bad as the Lions have been this season, they are ranked 15th against opposing fantasy quarterbacks, which is mostly due to teams being in the lead and not forced to pass in the second half of games. If running back James Conner is forced to miss the game with an ankle injury, the Cardinals may rely on Murray's running and passing in this one. Murray will be a high-end QB1 once again.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was coming off a game in which he only attempted 15 passes against the Chicago Bears in Week 13 but still produced for his fantasy managers by accounting for four total touchdowns. This week, while Murray did have a season-high in pass attempts and his second-most passing yards in 2021, he didn't produce a touchdown for only the second time this year in a 30-23 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Murray finished the game 32-49 for 383 yards but his two interceptions were costly ones for the Cardinals and his fantasy managers. Murray and the Cardinals get a much better matchup in Week 15 as they travel to take on the Detroit Lions.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray returned last week after missing the previous three games with an injury. Any concerns over how the injury would affect his play were put to rest as Murray ran 10 times for 59 yards and two touchdowns in addition to his two passing touchdowns. Arizona was in control for most of the game and Murray was only asked to throw 15 times. This weeks' opponent, the Los Angeles Rams will be a more formidable challenge, so Murray will be asked to shoulder more of the load in this one. The Rams give up the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, but Murray's dual-threat ability and Arizona's fast-paced offense make him almost matchup proof. With the over/under set at 51 points, fantasy managers can expect Murray to be a high-end QB1 in Week 14.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray returned to the lineup in Week 13 but only attempted 15 passes and ended the game with a season-low 123 yards passing. Luckily for the Cardinals and his fantasy managers, Murray also ran for 59 yards and two touchdowns. His rushing statistics combined with two passing scores were enough to put Murray at QB2 for the week entering the late Sunday games. The Cardinal offense only managed 257 total yards but didn't have to do much with Chicago Bear quarterback Andy Dalton throwing four interceptions. Murray's running ability and fast-paced nature of the Arizona offense make him one of the elite options at the position. The Cardinals will face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) is officially active for Week 13 against the Chicago Bears. Murray was expected to return all along, and it's now officially a reality. He will make his return for the first time since suffering an ankle sprain in Week 8. While Murray could be limited somewhat in what he does outside the pocket with his legs in terms of scrambling, fantasy managers should feel comfortable slotting him back into their starting lineups as at least a midrange QB1 this weekend. The 24-year-old is also getting No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) back, so minus running back Chase Edmonds, he'll have all of his offensive weapons. The Bears D has allowed only 215.8 passing yards per game and haven't given up a ton of fantasy points to QBs this year, but they are banged up on that side of the ball.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) is expected to start against the Bears on Sunday, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN. He had been listed as questionable. Murray ultimately missed three games and was given extra time to recover thanks to the Cardinals' conveniently-positioned bye in Week 12. Through eight games this season, the 24-year-old star has completed 186 passes for 2,276 yards, 17 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He has also rushed for 147 yards and three scores on the ground. Murray should play every snap, but it's possible that Arizona limits his tendency to run in his first game back. As such, fantasy managers should view him as a mid-range QB1.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) will again be a game-day decision in Week 13 against the Chicago Bears, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. It was reported on Thursday that Murray is expected to play this weekend for the first time since Week 8, but the Cardinals continue to be overly cautious with their star quarterback. The good news it that unlike in recent weeks when Murray was a game-time decision, the Cardinals have an early morning game this Sunday, so fantasy managers will know early if he's active. The 24-year-old might need to shake off some rust if he returns against a Bears defense that has been pretty decent against QBs fantasy-wise despite all their injuries, but Murray will be firmly in the QB1 conversation if he returns. Colt McCoy would see yet another start if Murray is out once more.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) are both expected to make their returns in Week 13 against the Chicago Bears this Sunday, barring any setbacks, according to sources. Murray and Hopkins both have not played since they suffered injuries in Week 8, so there could be a rust factor involved this weekend for both of them due to the long layoff. Both players are practicing this week, and while they could be listed as questionable on the final injury report, they both should be back. Murray and Hopkins should both be returned to starting fantasy lineups, although the Bears defense has been decent against the pass this year, allowing just 215.8 passing yards per game (eight-fewest in the league).
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) were both back at practice on Wednesday for the first time in over a month. While it's just Wednesday, this is a great step towards both superstars being active on Sunday against the Bears. With Chase Edmonds (ankle) still out and the Cardinals not wanting to overwork James Conner, it's possible that Arizona will turn to the pass more often against a fine but not great Bears defense. If both players are active on Sunday, they absolutely need to be in fantasy lineups and Hopkins could be a great DFS value.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury remains hopeful that quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) will play in Week 13 against the Chicago Bears, but he won't fully commit to it until he sees them practice this week. Both Murray and Hopkins haven't played since they were injured in Week 8. Murray has been closer to returning and has been a game-time decision for the team's last two games. With each player having the bye in Week 12 to rest up, they have a much better shot at returning to action this weekend. Rust could be a factor due to their long layoffs, but fantasy managers were starting both Murray and Hopkins each and every week with no questions asked when they were fully healthy. Keep a close eye on their practice participation this week.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) is officially out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, with Colt McCoy set to start for the third week in a row. McCoy played well against the Niners, throwing for 249 yards and a touchdown, but struggled against Carolina last week, throwing for just 107 yards and a pick. Hopefully, you already had Murray out of your lineup in anticipation of him missing this game.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) is not expected to play against the Seahawks on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Officially listed as questionable after being limited in practice this past week, Murray will test his ankle in pregame warmups before the team makes a final decision. However, at this point, it looks like the former No. 1 overall pick will get one more week of rest heading into the bye to ensure that he is available and healthy down the stretch and into the playoffs. Assuming Murray does sit out Sunday's contest, Colt McCoy (pectoral) would start his third consecutive game.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) will be a game-time decision yet again in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Murray has missed the last two games, but the difference this week is that he was practicing on a limited basis as early as Wednesday. Murray appears to have made more progress this week, but with the team on its bye in Week 12, there remains a chance that they play it safe and hold him out another week to ensure he'll be even closer to 100% when the team returns in Week 13. His mobility could be in question if he returns this weekend, which would make him more of a midrange QB1 option, as well as the fact that wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) has already been ruled out. Backup Colt McCoy (pectoral) will receive another start if Murray is inactive.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle), who has missed the last two games with an ankle sprain, was on the practice field again for the second straight day on Thursday. He's likely to be listed as limited for the second straight day, but Murray said on Wednesday that he's "pretty close" to returning in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks. But with Arizona's bye coming in Week 12, there's a chance that they play it safe and hold Murray out for a third straight game. A decision may come down to game time for a third straight week, which would continue to make things difficult for fantasy managers. If Murray returns, he's likely to be without wideout DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring), who has missed the last two games, and he could be limited with his mobility outside of the pocket.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) said he's "pretty close" on how his ankle is feeling as it pertains to his status for the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Murray has missed the last two days due to a sprained ankle, but he was on the field at practice on Wednesday and could be nearing a return. The Cardinals are understandably being cautious with their franchise signal-caller, so it's not a guarantee that he'll be active this Sunday just because he has returned to practice. We'll continue to monitor his status closely throughout the week leading up to Sunday afternoon's game. Murray will probably be limited in what he can do as far as scrambling outside of the pocket once he returns, but fantasy managers will want to get him back into starting lineups if he returns against Seattle.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday after missing two weeks with an ankle injury. Reports are that Murray was just throwing passes, so we're not sure how much he tested his ankle while moving around; however, being back on the field on a Wednesday is a good sign for his availability this weekend. Obviously, if Murray is back this weekend, you're starting him, and his return would bump up the value of James Conner, Christian Kirk, and Zach Ertz (plus potentially DeAndre Hopkins if he also returns).
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) will once again have his status in doubt in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said "it's going to be close," so Murray could be on his way to a third consecutive game-time decision on Sunday. Colt McCoy (pec) is also dealing with an injury but is considered day-to-day. Should Murray be held out of the lineup, McCoy should be able to start for the third time this season. The Arizona pass catchers should be downgraded if this is the case, as they could lean heavily on the run with James Conner as we saw in Week 9 against San Francisco.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) didn't play on Sunday against Carolina. However, head coach Kliff Kingsbury had indicated that the signal-caller was progressing well leading up to Week 10, but ultimately, he wasn't ready. Still, the latest revelation is undoubtedly positive news after the 24-year-old has now missed his last two games. With Colt McCoy (chest) sustaining an injury of his own against the Panthers, there is a greater sense of urgency for Murray to get back out there for the Week 11 meeting against Seattle. Still, with the team having a bye after that, there is also a chance fantasy managers won't see him again until Week 13 against the Chicago Bears.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
