Fantasy Football Friday Preview: Week 2 – Ravens vs Cardinals
By Mike Reid
QB – Kyler Murray
The number one pick in this year’s draft had mixed rookie debut last week. Through three quarters he looked overwhelmed in his first game. In the fourth quarter however, Murray looked the part of his draft selection as he lead Arizona on a 18-point comeback which eventually ended in a tie after overtime.
He finished with 21.6 Fntasy Football points which is a pretty solid performance, good for QB11 on the week. I really think Murray can be a top-10 Fantasy Football quarterback this season, their offense will be slinging the ball all year, plus he has rushing upside.
For week two though, in the home opener against the Ravens defense, it is not the time to be starting Murray. The Ravens feast on rookie quarterbacks, as I expect Wink Martindale to dial-up the blitzes against this poor offensive line. I also expect Earl Thomas to be lurking and will try to bait Murray into a mistake or two.
This should be a fun game to watch. Two of the most dynamic young quarterbacks in the league squaring off in a match-up you only get once a few years. Plus, a familiar face will be returning on Sunday as Terrell Suggs will be chasing down Lamar Jackson all game. Good luck in week two Fantasy Football friends. I’ll be back on Tuesday for a Fantasy Football stock report on the Ravens. Keep it locked on Ebony Bird all weekend for more Baltimore Ravens coverage.
