Kyler Murray was a game-time choice final week earlier than in the end being dominated inactive. Formally listed as “questionable,” he is in a lot the identical state of affairs in Week 10 for the Cardinals’ late-afternoon matchup towards Carolina. Along with frantically checking for information about Murray’s damage, fantasy soccer house owners are undoubtedly questioning if they need to even wait to search out out if he is taking part in earlier than making their begin ’em, sit ’em choice at QB. We’ll break all of it down and proceed to offer the newest updates on Murray beneath.

Is Kyler Murray taking part in Week 10?
UPDATE: NFL Community’s Ian Rapoport reported Saturday night time that the Cardinals are “pessimistic” Murray will play towards the Panthers.
UPDATE 2: Murray is formally OUT.
Murray (ankle) did not play final week and sat out observe on Wednesday and Thursday, however he managed to get in a limited session on Friday and is “questionable” forward of Sunday’s late-afternoon recreation towards the Panthers. Cadinals coach Kliff Kingsbury has already said Murray will probably be a “game-time choice.”
It is powerful to think about sitting Murray if he is lively, even when DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is out. Murray is simply too dynamic of a participant in too dynamic of an offense. The Panthers are a strong protection, permitting the seventh-fewest fantasy factors per recreation to QBs, but when the Cardinals really feel Murray is wholesome sufficient to play, it’s best to, too.
The actual difficulty is whether or not it’s best to even wait to see if Murray is lively. With Arizona taking part in a late-afternoon recreation, there aren’t a ton of broadly out there QB pivots. P.J. Walker, Teddy Bridgewater, Colt McCoy, and Jimmy Garoppolo are possible your solely choices. Any of the three may very well be first rate sufficient this week, however you are undoubtedly taking an enormous threat. Bridgewater has the best flooring and Walker might need the best ceiling (regardless of having the bottom flooring). McCoy might be someplace within the center and the simplest to “handcuff” to Murray.
In the end, we would advocate ready except you will get an particularly “secure,” high-upside QB within the early video games (Carson Wentz? Matt Ryan?). If these forms of gamers aren’t out there, seize a late-game backup and hope that Murray is lively. These conditions are by no means simple, so the most effective you are able to do is be sure to’re ready.
