Cardinals' Kyler Murray looking to run less this season

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray doesn't want to run as much as he did last season, he told reporters on Thursday.

What It Means:

After tallying 819 yards - 6.2 per attempt - and 11 touchdowns on the ground in 2020, Murray is looking to shake up his playing style. "Honestly, the way I see it is, my legs should be a luxury," he said said. "And it kind of wasn't like that last year. It was me having to run for us in a sense." Murray was banged up multiple times in his sophomore campaign, and less running should help him stay fresh during the new 17-game season format. However, this news could take a hit to his fantasy output, as rushing quarterbacks get a huge boost.

Our models currently project Murray for 4,494.67 passing yards, 27.23 passing touchdowns, 9.24 interceptions, 639.66 rushing yards and 8.50 rushing touchdowns this season. He's currently ranked as the No. 3 quarterback.
