Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Kyler finished as the #7 fantasy QB last year as a rookie despite an unsustainably low 3.7% TD-rate. You can expect that to jump this season, as should his volume both on the ground and in the air. Add in one of the league's best receivers in DeAndre Hopkins and it is challenging to imagine Murray finishing lower than last season unless he suffers an injury of some sort. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Finished his rookie season as a top eight quarterback, despite modest passing numbers (3722 yards and 20 touchdowns) thanks to elite rushing ability (544 yards, 4 TDs). Another year of growth as a passer and the addition of DeAndre Hopkins makes the second-year passer an every-week starter with an outside shot at leading the position in scoring. @mrhill9169 Being drafted as the QB3 in FFPC FBG ADP, way too rich for my blood.Minshew was a top ten fantasy quarterback from weeks 1-9 last season, has upgraded weapons surrounding him, underrated rushing ability (344 yards rushing in 14 games, fifth most in the league) @mrhill9169 Gardner Minshew had the third-best passer rating on play-action throws last year (136.4), but the lowest rate of play-action passes (14%) among 34 qualifying QBs (via PFF). @Pat_Thorman
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Finished middle of the QB1 class as rookie - with a year of seasoning under his belt and the addition WR D. Hopkins, nowhere to go in the rankings but up 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The hype was there for Murray in 2019, though he went through his ups and downs as a rookie. Now heading into his second year, a leap should be expected, especially since the Cardinals added DeAndre Hopkins to his weaponry and Larry Fitzgerald chose to return for another season. The Cardinals defense is still in rebuild mode, so we should see more shootout potential in 2020, which gives Murray top-three upside.Minshew is someone who might be a bit underrated by fantasy owners coming into the 2020 fantasy season. It took an average of 15.2 fantasy points to finish as a top-18 quarterback in 2019. Minshew hit that mark in 71.4 percent of his starts, highlighting a sturdy floor, as there were just 11 quarterbacks who posted a higher number than him. With no competent backup, this is Minshew's team to run for the season, and that brings stability in 2QB leagues.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Suffered from a ridiculously low TD rate in 2019 of 3.7%. Enter DeAndre Hopkins. He has the better passing ability and enough mobility to challenge for QB1 in 2020. Lamar and Kyler with the same 6% TD rate last year, with all other stats remaining the same: Lamar - 350 Points Kyler - 369 Lamar lost 12, Kyler gained 12 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Murray had 3,722 yards passing and 20 passing touchdowns as a rookie to go along with 544 yards rushing and 4 touchdowns. If he can take another stop forward in his second season, he has the chance to be among the elite fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL.
