2020 Fantasy Outlook
Working opposite Patrick Peterson as a rookie second-round pick in 2019, Murphy didn't fare well in reality, as evidenced by a 48.8 grade from Pro Football Focus. The mark was fueled by a league-worst nine touchdown passes allowed, but his stat line otherwise was modestly healthy (78 tackles, 10 passes defended and one interception). The tackle count ranked third among Cardinals defenders behind Jordan Hicks and Budda Baker. If Murphy continues to get picked on by opposing quarterbacks, he has a chance to retain that spot behind his teammates. Read Past Outlooks

Healthy tackle total as rookie
CBArizona Cardinals
January 13, 2020
Murphy compiled 78 tackles (66 solo), 10 pass defenses and one interception in 16 games during his rookie campaign.
ANALYSIS
A 2019 second-round pick, Murphy put up a healthy tackle total but mostly struggled in his first year as a pro. Specifically, he gave up a league-worst nine touchdown passes in coverage, which helped contribute to the Cardinals giving up the second most (38) in the NFL. Murphy thus received an unsightly 48.8 grade from Pro Football Focus. Because he ranked second on the team in defensive snap share (97.6 percent), he seemingly will be afforded every opportunity to prove Arizona's investment in him.
