Murray completed 27 of 43 passes for 245 yards and one touchdown while compiling 74 yards on his four carries during Saturday's 22-16 loss to the Colts. Murray also was credited with seven receiving yards on a lateral.
Most of Murray's output on the ground came on a 57-yard run on the Cardinals' second possession of the game. On top of that, game script forced the team into pass-happy mode once the Colts went up, 22-13, midway through the fourth quarter. In the end, the overall results were relatively fantasy friendly, but he does appear to miss DeAndre Hopkins (knee), as Murray has posted his two lowest completion percentages of the season since the premier wide receiver landed on IR after Week 14. Murray will attempt to right the ship Sunday, Jan. 2 in Dallas, whose pass defense ranks 22nd against the pass (245.6 yards per game) this season.
