Arizona QB Kevin Kolb will start for against the Raiders on Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt said that QB Kevin Kolb will get the start against Oakland on Friday, Mike Jurecki reports.

Analysis: Kolb has arguably been the worst starting quarterback in the entire league in this embryonic stage of the season. His stats are atrocious with 2-of-9 for 25 yard with an interception. That's good for a passer rating of 0.0, folks. The Cardinals are obviously giving their investment some leash and justifiably so after forking over a six-year, $55 million deal last offseason. John Skelton is next and line and have to get hot as well as Kolb continuing to fall flat on his face. Skelton had a passer rating of just 68.9 last season and looks very deliberate when delivering the ball. Larry Fitzgerald owners should be rooting for Kolb to turn it around to help Fitz's production. There are a lot of high upside receivers -- like Julio Jones -- that could be better picks than Fitzgerald in standard leagues at this point. Obviously, owners in even 14-team leagues shouldn't be targeting Kolb or Skelton.
