Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon said Monday that QB Kyler Murray will start Sunday against the Falcons, assuming he has another good week at practice, according to Darren Urban of the team website. This has been the expected return date for weeks now, despite Murray rejoining practices in Week 7. Arizona's caution and patience in bringing Murray back from his ACL tear should mean we get something close to a full-strength version. Of course, we can't know how often or how effectively Murray will run until we see him in games. His return can only help a passing game, though, that got just 58 yards, 2 INTs and 7 sacks from rookie Clayton Tune in Sunday's shutout loss to Cleveland. We're hoping for Murray to bring top-12 fantasy upside among QBs. We're betting on him enhancing the fantasy outlooks for other Arizona skill-position players.

Update: The Cardinals officially activated Murray from the PUP list on Tuesday.

Cardinals QB Clayton Tune completed 11 of 20 passes for 58 yards and 2 INTs in Week 9 vs. the Ravens. The rookie wasn’t very successful on Sunday. The same can be said for the rest of the Arizona offense. WR Marquise Brown hauled 4 of 8 targets for 24 yards, and TE Trey McBride accumulated 22 yards on 3 receptions. These two were the only Cardinals who totaled greater than 10 yards gained, rushing or receiving, in the contest. There’s not much fantasy-wise to take away from this contest, though it’s very likely that Week 10 will see the season debut of QB Kyler Murray (ACL). Next weekend’s matchup against the Falcons should be a good spot for both Murray and McBride as Atlanta ranks within the top 10-easiest matchups in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs and TEs this season.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) was not activated to the 53-man roster and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. He's been a full-go in practice the past two weeks. We're expecting Murray to make his 2023 debut next weekend. Rookie QB Clayton Tune will make his first career start tomorrow.

Cardinals QB Clayton Tune is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. QB Kyler Murray (knee) put in another full week of practice and is listed as questionable. But the Week 10 home game vs. the Falcons has looked like his most likely return target for a while now. Tune is a fifth-round rookie out of Houston who completed just 58% of his passes at 6.0 yards per attempt this preseason. He ranked 42nd in Pro Football Focus passing grade among 68 qualifiers. Arizona is implied for 14.25 points in Cleveland, which tells you how little confidence we should have in this Tune-led offense.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) is officially questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He was listed as doubtful last week. HC Jonathan Gannon wouldn’t say Friday who will start at QB this weekend. We’re still expecting it to be Clayton Tune but will keep you updated on the situation.

On Monday, Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon announced that the team has decided to reverse course and name rookie QB Clayton Tune as the starter for Week 9 vs. the Browns. This is in contrast to a statement made by Gannon yesterday that Joshua Dobbs would be the QB1 next weekend. Either way, this news still delays Kyler Murray's return from ACL until Week 10 at the earliest. As for Tune, he shouldn't be considered a starter in fantasy lineups outside deeper 2QB/superflex formats.

The Cardinals are expected to start QB Josh Dobbs in Sunday's opener at Washington, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That leaves rookie QB Clayton Tune as the backup ... and Arizona's receivers likely wondering when QB Kyler Murray will return. Dobbs has started just two career games since arriving as a fourth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2017, and both starts came last year. He has 85 career pass attempts, with 58.8% completions, 2 TDs, 3 INTs and 75 yards rushing (at 5.4 per attempt). That last aspect could give him some appeal as a cheap DFS play in Week 1. But the biggest fantasy impact here for most leagues is that Washington just might be the best fantasy defense for Week 1. You can see where Dobbs sits in our Week 1 QB rankings ... but you'll need to scroll down a good bit.

The Cardinals will keep QB Kyler Murray on the physically unable to perform list to open the regular season, according to multiple reports. That's no surprise, as Murray continues to work back from a November ACL tear. He'll miss at least the first four games. We've had Murray projected to miss five games all along in your fantasy football rankings. The Cardinals are also releasing QB Colt McCoy. That'll mean it's either rookie Clayton Tune or newly acquired Josh Dobbs starting for Arizona over the first month. We'll see who wins that post between now and Week 1.

The Cardinals acquired QB Joshua Dobbs and a 2024 seventh-round pick from the Browns in exchange for a 2024 fifth-rounder. Dobbs joins Colt McCoy and Clayton Tune as the healthy QBs in Arizona. The Cardinals have yet to name a Week 1 starter, with QB Kyler Murray still on the mend. The Browns, meanwhile, look set to roll with rookie QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson as QB Deshaun Watson's backup.

The Cardinals are placing QB Kyler Murray on the PUP list to open training camp, to the surprise of absolutely no one. Murray, of course, is working back from a Dec. 12 ACL tear. The main question on him for 2023 has been just how much regular-season time he'll miss. We'll continue watching for more insight on that.
