NFC Wild Card Playoffs - Arizona Cardinals v Los Angeles Rams

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has been one of the better quarterbacks in the league, regularly placing among the stat leaders in his position.

The 2022 NFL season started with a renewed responsibility for the quarterback, as he was handed a bumper contract. So far this season, Murray has performed decently even though he hasn't replicated his 2021 form. To make matters worse, Murray recently tweaked his hamstring, an injury from which he is presently recovering.

Kyler Murray's fantasy outlook

Kyler Murray's form this season might not be fantastic, but he still ranks as the seventh-best quarterback, according to the official NFL fantasy league. He has missed the Cardinals' last two games with a hamstring injury, which has seen backup quarterback Colt McCoy get into the lineup.

Murray will likely miss the Cardinals' Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. However, when fit, Murray has no real competition as the No. 1 quarterback for the Cardinals.

Kyler Murray's return status

Murray has been out for the last two games with a hamstring injury, and his style of play might have been a contributing factor. However, Murray is one of the better dual-threat quarterbacks in the league, and such ability comes at a cost.

A hamstring injury like Murray's has a one-month recovery timeframe, which is almost over. However, you can expect Murray to be back in Week 12 or 13 of 2022 as he looks to aid the Cardinals' fading playoff hopes.

Kyler Murray's 2022 season stats

As mentioned above, Murray has not been putting up the stats that you would expect from an elite quarterback, which is likely a reason for the Cardinals' mediocre performance.

The year-four shot caller is putting up average stats over the season, and he has not been mentioned in Pro Bowl talks. Murray has a stat line of 2,168 passing yards, 12 throwing touchdowns, and six intercepted passes in nine games this season for the Cardinals.
