The Top QBs To Start in Week 16

Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals (at CHI)

Analysis by Kyle Soppe | We’ve seen splash plays from Kyler Murray since returning from injury, and it’s enough to sell me on using him in this spot against a Chicago Bears defense that is stronger against the run than the pass.

Has Murray’s production been sporadic? Sure, but with 45+ opportunities in two of his past three games, the upside is borderline elite.

Murray has yet to throw for multiple scores in a game this season, but with over 68% of TDs scored against Chicago coming through the air — the fifth-highest mark in the league — that flaw could get ironed out and pave the way for a ceiling performance.

Murray is a top-10 play for me and a starter in all formats per our PFN Consensus Rankings. That said, his floor is a little concerning, which is why he’s my second favorite QB in this game.
