Cardinals have 78 total yards of offense at halftime on MNF: Fantasy implications

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

The Arizona Cardinals offense has been putrid through 30 minutes of football on Monday, racking up just 78 total yards. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Arizona Cardinals offense has been awful so far on Monday Night Football, with just 78 total yards at halftime. Starting quarterback John Skelton is just 7-for-15 passing for 72 yards with one interception. LaRod Stephens-Howling has just six yards rushing on seven carries, yet somehow has a long of 11 yards.

The Cardinals' offense has been one of the worst in the league this season. They rank 31st in total offense, averaging just 293.4 yards and 17.7 points per game.

Fantasy Impact: The San Francisco 49ers have been making good offenses look silly this season, so it's not too surprising that they have turned the Cards into a smoldering heap. Arizona's longest drive of the game so far is 27 yards, and that ended with an interception just before half.

The good news is that the Cardinals won't have to face the 49ers again until Week 17. The bad news is that there isn't a reliable weekly fantasy starter on the team as long as the offensive line and quarterback positions are in tatters. Case in point: Larry Fitzgerald has just one reception for 13 yards on four targets so far after being held to just 29 yards last week.
