2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Cardinals are all in on Kyler Murray. They made the Heisman Trophy winner this year's top draft pick and already named him the starter. New coach Kliff Kingsbury said he'll tailor his air raid offense around Murray, who shouldn't face too steep of a learning curve after he excelled in Oklahoma's spread attack, joining Deshaun Watson as the only quarterbacks in FBS history with 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season. Murray has a strong arm, quick release and first-rate elusiveness - he was sacked on just 4.5 percent of his dropbacks last season. Height is his only issue, but it's a big one. At 5-10 1/8, he's the shortest quarterback drafted in the first round since 1953. He's also shorter than Russell Wilson, who despite all his success has trouble seeing over linemen at times. The Cardinals are betting that, like Wilson, Murray can overcome it with exceptional athleticism - he was picked ninth overall in the 2018 MLB Draft - and instinctive playmaking skills. He'll be surrounded by physically gifted receivers with spread-offense experience. Second-round pick Andy Isabella ran a 4.31 40 at the combine, and Christian Kirk played in the air raid at Texas Tech. Murray also has Larry Fitzgerald working the slot and an excellent receiver out of the backfield in David Johnson. The biggest question is how well the air raid offense will work in the NFL.

Murray completed three of eight passes for 12 yards and added a four-yard run during Thursday's 33-26 loss to Oakland
ANALYSIS
Murray was humming in the preseason opener against the Chargers, but the Raiders knocked him off his mark Thursday. He sailed a handful of passes and was made uncomfortable by Oakland's rush on multiple occasions, including a nine-yard sack that resulted in a safety. The preseason is bound to get tougher on rookies as it progresses, with teams keeping starters in for longer periods and getting a little less vanilla with play calls. Murray got popped Thursday, and it'll be interesting to see how he responds next week against Minnesota.
