2020 fantasy recap
Kyler Murray took a huge leap from last year, as he has the Cardinals on the brink of breaking a 5 year playoff drought. Kyler had a phenomenal start to the season, with his highest point totals of the year (so far) at home against Seattle and Miami. He is even in the race to be the league leader, sitting only one behind Cam Newton with one game to go.
2021 fantasy preview
Kyler takes on a handful of tough defenses next year in the NFC North and AFC South. While the games against the Colts and Titans are potential shoot-outs, the NFC North has been an area that the Cardinals have struggled against. Look back to the early 2010’s when Minnesota was very beatable, the teams’ struggle against Detroit seemingly every year (minus 2015), and the intense games that Green Bay has been involved with Arizona.
Can you trust Murray?
Of course you can. There are many good games on the schedule for him (TEN, SF, SEA, HOU, JAX) and the rushing upside is an incredible weapon to have. My only warning for fantasy managers is that watch out for when this team loses two in a row, as he can be very streaky. In both occurrences this year, his points have dropped by at least 10 points (+/- 2 based on scoring) from his last win.
