Kevin Kolb Expected To Remain Cardinals Starter: Fantasy Implications

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is expected to remain the starter when John Skelton is able to return from his ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kevin Kolb is expected to remain the starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, according to beat reporter Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic. Somers, in a story written for The Sporting News, suggests coach Ken Whisenhunt is playing coy and that it would be foolish for the Cardinals to bench Kolb now that the team is off to a 3-0 start. Week 1 starter John Skelton suffered an ankle injury in the first game of the season and Kolb rallied the team for a win.

Fantasy Impact: It would be more of a surprise if Whisenhunt went back to Skelton at this point. The Cardinals are winning with defense but Kolb on Sunday against the Eagles completed 17 of 24 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns. For fantasy owners, Kolb is still a No. 2 option but he is certainly moving up the list.
