Kyler Murray

Another quarterback who is probably rostered but if not and is on the waiver wire would be a good option in Kyler Murray. The reason the Cardinals were able to trade Dobbs was that the former first overall pick was close to returning from a torn ACL in 2022.

In his first game since the injury, Murray had 249 passing yard with one interception but showed off his scrambling ability with 33 rushing yards and a touchdown. The passing numbers should improve but the fact that he was already running as well as he was is a big positive for the remainder of the year.

Kyler Murray has a pretty favorable schedule for the rest of the season and has great matchups in fantasy football playoffs. In Week 16, the Caridnals are on the road against the Chicago Bears and in Week 17 on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles which are two plus matchups for quarterbacks.
