Arizona's QB Race Still Tight, For All The Wrong Reasons: Fantasy Implications

The Arizona Cardinals still have a tight QB race, but not for the reasons you think. We break down the fantasy implications.

After two games of preseason, the Arizona Cardinals' QB competition is as close as it ever was. Problem is, it's only been close because neither Kevin Kolb nor John Skelton have done enough to stand out. Kolb has had a bad preseason so far, going 2 for 9 with 25 yards, one INT, a 0.0 QB Rating and bruised ribs. Skelton hasn't been much better (7 for 12, 67 yards, one pick). Coach Ken Whisenhunt isn't tipping his hand as to which QB is starting, but he's not impressed with the situation, telling the Arizona Republic: "We had some one-on-one matchups with receivers down the field tonight and we didn't get to them. We didn't throw them. Those are things that are frustrating."

Analysis: What a disaster. It's only two games in, but the Cards' offense has been limp and lifeless regardless of who's under center. This mess could depress Larry Fitzgerald's fantasy numbers, so don't reach too high for him if the Cards can't figure out their QB situation.
