Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. Peterson, one of the best defensive players for Arizona, is dealing with a groin injury. Peterson is expected to be matched up against Patriots wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, who was a popular breakout candidate in fantasy football this summer. Peterson will likely take the field, but his injury could limit him.

Fantasy Impact: If Peterson can't play on Sunday, Brandon Lloyd's fantasy stock would soar. Lloyd will likely be bottled up by Peterson all afternoon if he plays, and given the plethora of options Tom Brady has to work with, Lloyd could get left out.
