Heading into Week 12, the Arizona Cardinals have decided to give the starting nod to quarterback Ryan Lindley, via Mike Jurecki. The QB carousel in Arizona has been ongoing since the departure of Kurt Warner. Arizona has been on quite a decline since their hot start to 2012.
There is no proof that Lindley gives the Cardinals a better chance of winning than Skelton. Likely, it's a temporary desperation move until Kevin Kolb can return.
Fantasy Analysis: This news affects two players in fantasy football, and neither is Ryan Lindley. Consider Lindley irrelevant in fantasy leagues. However, with him lining up under center, running back Beanie Wells could get an increased workload. He might be worth a flex spot this week versus the St. Louis Rams.
The second player this affects is Larry Fitzgerald. No. 11 had been a dynamo in this offense despite it's QB troubles. While he remains a must-start week to week, this does not help Fitz's fantasy value.
