2021 Fantasy Outlook
Murphy has endeared himself to the Cardinals since they picked him in the second round of the 2019 Draft. Through two seasons, he's missed just one game (due to COVID-19) and otherwise totaled 129 tackles, two sacks, two fumble recoveries and one interception in 31 contests. Now with Malcolm Butler on the other side instead of Patrick Peterson, Murphy could be in line for yet another fruitful campaign. Read Past Outlooks

November 11, 2020
The Cardinals activated Murphy from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Murphy tested positive for COVID-19 last Monday, but he's now been cleared to resume practicing with teammates. As such, the second-year cornerback can be considered on track for Sunday's game against the Bills, just in time to provide Arizona's secondary with reinforcements in a key matchup.

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.
