Hail to Fantasy Football
 The ECR has him as nearly a top-12 QB, so I'll have zero shares of Big Ben this year.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I love Kyler Murray this season. Kliff Kingsbury is installing an air raid attack that we haven't seen since the Chip Kelly days. This team is going to throw the ball a ton, and they're going to be aggressive in doing so. They have a top 5 RB talent in David Johnson, a strong WR core featuring second year WR Christian Kirk, old time vet Larry Fitz, and the electric rookie receiver Andy Isabella. This team is going to surprise people with how many points they score, and Kyler is the exact mold of QB that can put up fantasy points in a hurry. I'm drafting Kyler Murray if he falls in drafts. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Murray is going to be the starter in Week 1 and the Cardinals have a bunch of favorable matchups against Cincinnati, the NFC South and in their own division. Murray should be an inconsistent QB2 with some upside in an offense that has some playmakers.Big Ben had 5,129 yards passing, 34 passing touchdowns and he was the 3rd ranked fantasy quarterback. The loss of WR Antonio Brown will hurt his fantasy value, but Big Ben should still be a high-end QB2 with QB1 upside in favorable matchups. It speaks to the depth of the quarterback position that he is not ranked in the Top-10.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Murray was the 1.1 pick so you would think he will start right away, but with the Cardinals not contending, it wouldn't be a surprise if they took their time getting him ready. There is also a substantial injury risk for this slender run-first quarterback. With that said, in games he starts, we are looking at a fringe QB1 with upside to finish even in the top 5 fantasy quarterbacks.Six hundred and seventy five. That's how many pass attempts Big Ben threw in 2018. That number is going to drop, perhaps even by 100 so don't be expecting another 5,000 yards or another QB3 fantasy performance on the season. With that said, when Big Ben has been on the field, he is a consistent top 15 option so we ought to plan for much of the same even despite the decrease in volume and the loss of Antonio Brown.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Murray has some big questions to be answered on whether he'll be in the league for a long time, but fortunately, as a fantasy player, you don't have to worry about it in 2019. He'll be the starter as long as he's healthy and with Kliff Kingsbury wanting to run 70-plus plays per game, it'll create plenty of fantasy points. The disparity in fantasy points per dropback isn't that large, so the more often he does it, the better, especially knowing he can rush for 500-plus yards. If Murray can stay on the field for all 16 games, he should be locked-in as a top-12 quarterback.Losing Antonio Brown won't do Roethlisberger any favors and it's not as if he was a lock to finish top-10 before then. In fact, Roethlisberger has finished inside the top 10 quarterbacks just four times in his 15-year career. You thought he had ups and downs before? He's not worth the headache and we're surprised many experts are willing to invest a top-12 quarterback selection on him.

I see the upside in Murray, but there's also a ton of risk. Rookie quarterbacks can still struggle and make mistakes. I'm not paying a premium for the bumps in the road.
