ANDY BEHRENS: Folks, I will tolerate no Kyler Murray skepticism for 2020. He is an easy top five fantasy quarterback. Let me lay it out for you. In his rookie season, he became one of only two quarterbacks in NFL history to pass for 3,500 yards and rush for 500 as first year players. He is a dynamic rushing threat. He was number two among all quarterbacks in rushing yards last season behind Lamar Jackson, averaged nearly six yards per carry. That gives him an extraordinary fantasy safety net.

And it's an offense that's going to run a zillion plays per game. They added DeAndre Hopkins. He actually has year to year continuity, which is a great thing for fantasy purposes in any year, but especially in 2020. You are going to want to draft him early inside the top 50. If you're looking for a candidate to be this year's Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray is it.
