Kyler Murray is a Top 10 quarterback during fantasy football playoffs

One of the reasons that the Arizona Cardinals were able to trade Joshua Dobbs is they expect Kyler Murray back very soon, possibly as early as next week in Week 10. The former first overall pick hasn't played yet this season after suffering a torn ACL last season.

At times, Murray has been one of the top quarterbacks for fantasy football due to his rushing ability and has 23 rushing touchdowns in 57 games. The ability to scramble is going to help him be relevant for fantasy football down the stretch this season.

However, while most should take a wait and see approach it is important to add him to your team now. The reason being that when the playoffs roll around for your league, if those playoffs are Week 16 and Week 17, Murray has some great matchups that make him almost a must-start during this period.

In Week 16, the Cardinals travel to play a Chicago Bears defense that ranks near the bottom in most defensive categories. The Cardinals will then travel in Week 17 to play the Philadelphia Eagles, who have struggled to slow down opposing offenses.

Kyler Murray is a great stash and see how he plays over the next few weeks to see if he could be a starting quarterback during the playoffs.
