Kyler Murray Set to be a Fantasy Force in Cardinals’ “Air Raid” Offense

After labeling Kyler Murray so “dominant a football player” that he’d “take him with the first pick,” new Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury kept his word. Murray led off the 2019 NFL Draft, landing in the ideal “Air Raid” system for him to be a Day One Fantasy Force. Murray is fresh off setting the NCAA ablaze with 4,361 passing yards, 42 TDs, 7 Ints to go with 1,001 rushing yards and 12 TDs inside Lincoln Riley‘s Oklahoma Air Raid. Additionally the team added speedy weaponry to an already stacked cabinet, giving Murray a deep stable of targets. Though the line is highly suspect, Murray has all the ingredients for a stellar rookie-year.

Kingsbury’s long been infatuated with Murray, giving the pick a fatalistic feel. The new HC had previously gushed, “He’s a freak…I’ve followed him since he was a sophomore in high school…I’ve never seen one better in high school. Just think the world of him and what he can do on the football field.”

Plus, Kingsbury added the perfect weaponry to make his “Air Raid” an NFL reality. UMass standout Andy Isabella, their 62nd pick, brings elite 4.31 speed and exceptional quicks to the table. Additionally, the massive 6’5″ Hakeem Butler (pick 103) blazes a 4.48, and can win contested balls.

Nevermind the Cardinals already boasted an All-Pro pass-catching back in David Johnson, who’s rapidly reclaiming his Top-10 Overall Fantasy Value, as well as the ageless Larry Fitzgerald and surging Christian Kirk.

Simply put: Murray has the arm and accuracy to spray at all levels of the field, and the system and weapons to capitalize. Combined with elite rushing upside, Murray slides into my Top-15 QBs, with the upside to rise inside a competitive QB1 class with strong camp performances. For more, click here.
