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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 offence 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.

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

He just scooped Watson's top receiver, is younger and has less of an injury history. He bumps from 4 to 3 over Watson for me and should be considered at the top of Round 5 in dynasty startups.

Addition of Hopkins will accelerate his rise to dynasty Top 4-5 territory
