Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Murray's own dynamic play, a fun system, and a sea of viable weapons have him set up for a massive second year leap. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
We surmised last year that Murray would have a learning curve, but that his dual-threat game would give him immediate fantasy upside. With DeAndre Hopkins now a Cardinal and by far the team's best receiving threat, Murray has a chance to be the third straight second-year QB to win NFL MVP honors. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
The 2020 Murray hype is totally out of control and not warranted. Kyler was good in 2019 but ultimately finished as QB12 in points per game. While development will certainly occur, there's a good chance his rushing will decrease in his second year while he still has a lot of work to do to suggest elite upside on par with his ADP. In dynasty, the story changes. The Cardinals are building a strong roster with the Hopkins trade making a massive difference to their passing attack. Sadly, Covid will make it hard for this offense to make immediate strides with Nuk, but the future is looking very bright for Kyler. It may just be a year early to really reach for him in drafts. Be patient.It looks like Jameis Winston will sit in 2020 behind Drew Brees. It's clearly the correct long term move and it does give him the possibility of some fantasy value if Brees goes down and Sean Payton doesn't actually use Taysom Hill.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There's a realistic scenario where Murray is the QB1 at the end of the season, though I can't say we should expect it. In the first year of Kliff Kingsbury's offense, he averaged just 6.9 yards per attempt. While it was his rookie season, the Cardinals also had the element of surprise, in that no one had existing tape on the offense. Adding DeAndre Hopkins surely helps his chances, though. Did you know there were six games that Murray didn't throw a touchdown last year? Based on where his pass attempts and rushing attempts took place, Murray should've scored the third-most fantasy points among quarterbacks last year. Natural progression to his career should improve efficiency. If you're looking for upside, he's got it. He belongs in the same tier as guys like Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson, and Deshaun Watson. The difference between him and those guys? They've proved to be top-three fantasy quarterbacks already.

The debut of Desert Heat 2020? Offensive balance & attack, the Cards are poised to strike in the NFC West 
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. He has an excellent chance to do that with the acquisition of DeAndre Hopkins. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With the addition of DeAndre Hopkins, plus Murray's rushing ability, there's a very real possibility that Murray finishes as a top-5 fantasy QB in 2020. 
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. 
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 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
No QB in the league should be more excited right now than Kyler Murray. The Cardinals traded for arguably the best WR in the league in DeAndre Hopkins giving Murray a true number one option. Add Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk into the mix and the Cardinals are shaping up to be one of the scariest offenses in football. Murray couldn't be in a better spot to succeed. 
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 
Bart Wheeler
