Should You Hurry To Draft Kyler Murray?

A detailed look at Kyler Murray's fantasy prospects for the 2020 season.

Should You Hurry to Draft Kyler Murray?

Kyler Murray is a hot commodity in drafts this year, with good reason. This time last year the fantasy world was divided about Murray's NFL future, as many wondered if a 5-foot-10 system quarterback who had one foot in baseball could possibly justify the first overall pick as the Cardinals new franchise quarterback. Fast forward and we now know Murray belongs in the league. He displayed confidence, consistency, and awareness that belies his age. With the Cardinals set to build off a last year's total remake, and with DeAndre Hopkins slotting into an already promising depth chart, Murray is on a shortlist for elite fantasy quarterbacks who could finish QB3 behind the consensus top two picks: Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes. But it'll cost you, as his ADP leaves little room for error.

A meteoric rise gets off to a promising start

Kyler Murray went from undersized system quarterback at Oklahoma destined for a professional baseball career, to the first overall pick and cornerstone of Kliff Kingbury's initial foray as an NFL head coach. We don't need to re-litigate the Cardinals' decision to draft Murray No. 1 other than to say it was a controversial decision met with as many skeptics as supporters. The good news is Murray passed his rookie test with flying colors.
