Larry Fitzgerald had just one reception for four yards during Sunday's game between the Cardinals and Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

Larry Fitzgerald had just one reception for four yards during Sunday's game between the Arizona Cardinals and the New England Patriots. Fitzgerald was targeted five times compared to 11 times the week before. He also struggled last season when Kevin Kolb was the starting quarterback compared to John Skelton.

Fantasy Impact: Kolb, starting in place of the injured Skelton, went just 15-for-27 passing for 140 yards and one touchdown against the Patriots. It's anyone's guess why he didn't look towards his uber-talented wideout more often. What's clear is that the Cardinals need a lot of help on offense, with Skelton being the preferred leader once he is healthy.
