Dynasty Draft Advice: Kyler Murray, Trey Benson, Marvin Harrison Jr., Trey McBride

The thought of all the fantasy weaponry in the rugged NFC West has me biting my lip with goosebumps climbing my arms. Dynasty fantasy football is both a long and short game. This division has you covered either way.

The 49ers were conference champs and topped the division with 12 wins, but the Rams and Seahawks both finished above .500 with the former earning a Wild Card berth. Even the Cardinals, under new head coach Jonathan Gannon, showed some teeth despite logging only four wins. Looking ahead at 2024 and beyond, all four teams have plenty to offer in the way of fantasy production at every position. Let’s dive into some dynasty draft advice for the Arizona Cardinals.

Arizona Cardinals Dynasty Draft Advice

When did Kyler Murray become so disrespected in dynasty? It doesn’t make any sense. Out of eight games played last season after a lengthy hiatus from ACL surgery, he was a QB1 in four, despite taking a while to get his sea legs underneath him. He ran for his life with an awful line and a skeleton crew at RB. His top receiver was stud TE Trey McBride because Marquise Brown battled lower body injuries. Brown was replaced by one of the best WR prospects in decades. McBride remains as a hulking chain mover with malevolent intentions after the catch. I fully expect Murray to return to his rightful place as a top-tier fantasy QB.

Don’t ask me when James Conner has had enough. I have no idea. In a completely non-derogatory way, he is the fantasy football cockroach. His nuclear fallout era still has him aging like a Twinkie and plunging into the end zone. He is still not 30 years old somehow but has an extensive injury history and a shiny new toy in the RB room. Trey Benson transferred from Oregon to Florida State after a catastrophic knee injury derailed his Ducks dream. As a Seminole, Benson was incredible as an all-around back. A more bursty Kyren Williams, I envision a quick payoff for Benson as a rookie with a sizable contribution to the offense.

Be still, my heart. Marvin Harrison Jr. has arrived in the desert to stir us emotionally with his artistry and craftsmanship. Yes, he is that good. To watch Harrison run routes and extend his vice grip hands and tap his toes inbounds like a gymnast on the balance beam is art. He will be a WR1 from the word ‘go’ and for another decade-plus. He joins incumbents Michael Wilson and Greg Dortch in the receiving room. The former proved a more than serviceable option as an unheralded rookie last season. The latter is a stunningly under-appreciated target hog from the slot. Zay Jones was acquired as a camp invite. I’m not sure enough remains in the tank to give him a shot in dynasty.

I swoon for McBride, too. He has traits that can utterly dominate a football game. I compared him to Jeremy Shockey coming into the league a couple of years ago and he has proven that to be apt. I have him ranked as my dynasty TE3 overall, behind only Kyle Pitts and Sam LaPorta in the same elite tier. If this Cardinals squad can put together a strong defense, they will break some hearts in the classiest division under the shield.
