  • How early should Kyler Murray be going in fantasy football drafts?
  • Ian Hartitz analyzes the rookie's ceiling with the Arizona Cardinals.

We’re in the thick of the NFL offseason and it’s officially time to start fantasy football prep. I’ll be answering the biggest questions heading into the 2019 season; this is part of that series.

The Cardinals are attempting to become the latest offense to quickly benefit from switching up their coaching staff.

Long-time Texas Tech head coach and Air Raid guru Kliff Kingsbury will be calling the shots in Arizona this season — and he gets to do so with his self-pronounced No. 1 option under center.

The Kyler Murray era is here.

Last year’s first-round pick Josh Rosen was shipped to the Dolphins in exchange for a 2019 second-round pick and a 2020 fifth-round selection, and the only other quarterbacks on the roster are former Packers backup Brett Hundley and something named Chad Kanoff.

Let’s analyze what makes Murray such an intriguing prospect and what his fantasy football potential is in Year 1.
