The Arizona Cardinals could reportedly be looking for a veteran quarterback. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Arizona Cardinals could be looking to add a veteran quarterback according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. John Skelton is starting for the Cardinals tonight, seemingly giving him the edge in the competition against Kevin Kolb, but possibilities are rising that if neither of them impresses enough that Arizona might go outside of the organization for help. Ryan Lindley and Richard Bartel have also been fighting for a roster spot.

Fantasy Implications: Arizona is not short on quarterbacks, but they apparently have not been impressed enough by any of them to feel comfortable at the position. Skelton was 3-for-3 for 23 yards and a touchdown in their recent preseason game against the Raiders, while Kolb was 3-for-6 for 22 yards. One possibility could be Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who has reportedly been on the trade market, along with Browns quarterback Colt McCoy.
