John Skelton is inactive for Sunday's game between the Arizona Cardinals and the New England Patriots. As a result, Kevin Kolb will start the game. Skelton left last week's season opener in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. He was unable to practice this week.
Fantasy Impact: Kolb looked very good when pressed into emergency action last week, going 6-of-8 passing to lead the Cardinals on a game-winning drive over the Seattle Seahawks. Whether that makes him a viable fantasy option is up to you, but we'd advise you to heed history here and not make a rash decision. If Kolb is able to take over the starting job in Arizona, he could eventually be worth fantasy consideration. For now, you should be able to find a better starting quarterback in standard leagues.
