Murray was a fantastic pick in redraft leagues last season due to his involvement as a runner in the red zone. He amassed 25 total rush attempts inside the 20 and it turned into nine rushing touchdowns. If Murray hadn't been injured halfway through the season, we might have seen that number be even higher too. Heading into 2021, the Cardinals have added some new faces to the receiving corps in an effort to make life easier on Murray. With his rushing upside, plus the pure passing volume, Murray belongs in the top-5 conversation yet again.

Kyler Murray wants to run less in 2021

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray says that he wants to run less in 2021.

Fantasy Impact

"Honestly, the way I see it is, my legs should be a luxury," Murray said. "And it kind of wasn't like that last year. It was me having to run for us in a sense. Once my shoulder was banged up and I wasn't trying to put myself out there and take those hits, we hit a lull. Honestly, I think it was a lesson for us. We can't be one-dimensional. We've got be better in all aspects of the game." For fantasy purposes, it would certainly be a bummer for Murray's overall QB1 potential if he doesn't run as much. He was a true fantasy cheat code during the first half of 2020, but he wasn't nearly as much of a difference-maker down the stretch. Ultimately, it's unlikely that Murray stops running all that much, but it's something to consider for his range of outcomes this year.
