Murray has finished as the QB1 in consecutive weeks to start the season, and he faces the hapless Jags in Week 3. Don't overthink this. You know what to do.

Well, through two games Murray is averaging 345 passing yards and 3.5 passing touchdowns. Additionally, he's also adding on an average of 25.5 rushing yards and one touchdown just for the fun of it. He's been unstoppable through two weeks and he now gets to take on the defense that is 28th in the league in Pass DVOA. The Jaguars are allowing 295.5 passing yards per game and there's a very strong possibility that Murray has another QB1 fantasy finish in this one. Jacksonville doesn't stand a chance of slowing down this Cardinals passing attack and we could be in line for another monstrous performance from Murray.

What an epic mismatch this appears to be. Murray currently sits as the QB1 by a comfortable margin, leading his next-closest pursuer, Tom Brady, by more than five points per game. Now he gets to face a Jacksonville defense that has yielded top-12 weeks to Tyrod Taylor and Teddy Bridgewater. It could be a bloodletting when Murray and the Cardinals come to town. Murray ranks second in passing yardage (689) and TD passes (7), and he's run for a pair of touchdowns. The only glitch in the matrix thus far is his interception total (3). Murray is the QB1 in my rankings this week, and he's fittingly the most expensive quarterback on DraftKings this week, checking in at $8,300 while Patrick Mahomes is at $8,200.

The Jaguars are 19th against fantasy quarterbacks, but they also played at Houston and Denver in the opener. They haven't seen a quarterback like Murray and they will be exposed against the leading fantasy quarterback in the NFL.
