Kevin Kolb is expected to start on Sunday for the Arizona Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kevin Kolb is expected to start on Sunday for the Arizona Cardinals against the New England Patriots, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Cardinals coach Ken Wisenhunt on Wednesday refused to rule out John Skelton, who left the team's Week 1 win over the Seattle Seahawks with an ankle injury. Kolb led the game-winning drive for the Cardinals after Skelton was carted off the field.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't much of a surprise, especially after Kolb played well on Arizona's final drive of the game. Skelton did not practice on Wednesday and was not expected to be ready for this week. This is a slight boost for Kolb but neither quarterback has a lot of fantasy value this week.
