Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray was named the 2019 Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year Saturday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Murray led the Cardinals to a 5-10-1 record while starting all 16 games in his rookie season. He finished the year with 349 completions on 542 attempts with 3,722 yards and 20 touchdowns against 12 interceptions. He added 544 rushing yards and four scores on the ground. He's already one of the league's best dual-threat quarterbacks, and his passing numbers should only improve with some upgrades to the Cardinals' receiving corps.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray finished the 2019 season with 3,722 passing yards, 544 rushing yards, 24 total touchdowns and 12 interceptions, joining Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton as the only rookie quarterbacks in NFL history to pass for at least 3,500 yards and rush for at least 500 yards.
Huddle Up: Although Murray had his share of ups and downs in his rookie campaign, his dual-threat ability still allowed him to provide low-end QB1 production overall. He should at least be able to post similar numbers in Year 2, and his ceiling is even higher.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray hasn't necessarily given up on playing the sport of baseball. In an interview with The Arizona Republic's Bob McManaman, Murray said that he thinks that he would be capable of playing in the NFL and MLB in the same calendar year. 'I think I could. ... Athletically, I think yeah, I could do it. I've been playing both my whole life. I would love to add that to the resume.'
Huddle Up: Despite Murray's wishes, his baseball dreams appear unlikely to happen anytime soon, if ever, since his current contract with the Cardinals prohibits him from playing baseball. From a fantasy football perspective, he should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in next season's fantasy drafts.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Murray will be in the starting lineup, but it is not known if he will be limited at all because of the injury. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues but can also be benched if better option are available.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is expected to play in the Week 17 game as long as he does not suffer a setback during pregame warmups, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Murray will be able to handle his normal workload because of the injury, so fantasy players could consider using another quarterback in their lineups and keeping Murray on the bench.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is considered a true game-time decision for Week 17's game against the Los Angeles Rams, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Murray was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. QB Drew Anderson was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Saturday, Dec. 28, and Arizona is unlikely to risk Murray's long-term health in a meaningless game for both clubs, so it wouldn't be surprising if he is held out of action. In the event that Murray is active this afternoon, he should be viewed as a risky midrange QB2 option.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) remained limited at practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Murray will be a high-end QB2 if active for the regular-season finale, but the Cardinals won't be risking his long-term health. He shouldn't be counted on this week.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: Murray completed 11 of 18 pass attempts for 118 yards and a touchdown before being replaced by Brett Hundley in the upset win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16. He's a mid-tier QB2 against the Los Angeles Rams in the season finale, if active.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) will practice Tuesday, Dec. 24. His MRI showed that he tweaked his hamstring in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Interesting. Murray has taken a beating among the most-sacked quarterbacks in the league. This would be the perfect excuse to spare him from more, but it sounds like they want him to play against the Los Angeles Rams. If he goes, there's no guarantee he'll play the whole game. Murray isn't more than a backup in fantasy in the Week 17 finale.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray's (hamstring) MRI did not show any significant problems to his hamstring, according to sources. Murray has not been ruled out of the Week 17 game at this point.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to see if Murray will be able to practice this week. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues, but players can also keep Murray on the bench and use a healthier quarterback for their lineups.
