Kyler Murray Plans To Help Offensive Line More

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was the most-sacked signal-caller in his rookie season in 2019, getting taken down 48 times. Last year, a lot of those sacks I feel were on me, Murray said. The young QB held onto the ball way too long early in the season, but he was sacked just twice in the final three games. Arizona's offensive line is by no means outstanding, but they will remain largely unchanged from last season, which could be good news from a continuity standpoint. Murray plans to do his part to avoid taking so many sacks in his second season in the NFL. With a new No. 1 receiver in DeAndre Hopkins in a pass-happy offense, Murray has high-end QB1 upside for fantasy owners.

DeAndre Hopkins: "I Know I'm The Best"

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins proclaimed to be the best receiver in the league during a recent appearance on ESPN's Jalen and Jacoby. Though Hopkins acknowledged the talent of both Michael Thomas and Julio Jones, the veteran blamed his shortcomings on the inconsistent quarterback play that he dealt with while he was a member of the Houston Texans. The 28-year-old did regress in terms of statistical output in 2019 despite Deshaun Watson maintaining similar numbers from the 2018 campaign. With a change in scenery and a potential breakout from Kyler Murray in 2020, Hopkins may have no one to blame but himself if he doesn't produce as efficiently as the other elite wideouts in the league.

DeAndre Hopkins A Master Of 50/50 Ball

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is an acrobatic pass-catcher with elite hand-eye coordination. He's known for being a master of the 50/50 ball and has a knack for coming down with contested catches in traffic. Nuk has averaged 90 catches for 1,229 yards over his seven NFL seasons while scoring 31 touchdowns since 2017. Hopkins was acquired by the Cardinals to be the No. 1 wideout for sophomore quarterback Kyler Murray. He has earned first-team All-Pro honors each of the last three years and is the third player in NFL history -- Marvin Harrison and Torry Holt are the others -- to have over 600 catches, 8,500 receiving yards and 50 TDs in his first seven seasons. Although Hopkins is learning a new offense and Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk will command targets, he remains a top-five fantasy wideout in Kliff Kingsbury's Air Raid offense.

Kyler Murray Can Improve Under Pressure

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray wasn't pressured often in his rookie season, but when he was, he was among the league's worst. Murray had a negative-19 completion percentage under expectation when pressured and a passer rating of just 42.3 in those scenarios. However, he only attempted 29 passes under pressure last season. The Offensive Rookie of the Year had a completion percentage of 64.4, a 20:12 TD-to-interception ratio and a passer rating of 87.4 in his rookie campaign. Murray's 62 rushes that reached 15-plus mph were the most in the NFL, according to Next Gen Stats. While Murray can certainly improve, his rare talents as a rusher and passer give him high-end QB1 upside in just his second season.

Chase Edmonds Is Explosive

Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds had 20 rushes of 15-plus mph on just 59 carries last year, resulting in the highest percentage of explosive runs (minimum of 50 rushes) in the entire league. Edmonds had 303 rushing yards and four touchdowns in 13 games (two starts) last year for the Cardinals. As long as Kenyan Drake is healthy as the lead back, Edmonds probably won't see more than a handful of touches per game, though. The 24-year-old makes for a great handcuff for Drake owners, and he could have tremendous value in Arizona's rising offense if Drake were to go down with an injury at any point.
