Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton practiced on Wednesday, albeit on a limited basis. Skelton was named the starter over Kevin Kolb headed into the season but injured his ankle late in their week 1 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Kolb took over and led the Cardinals to a 20-16 win and has played exceptionally well in Arizona's 3-0 start, completing 64.4% of his passes with 4 touchdowns and no interceptions. Even if Skelton returns this week, it will be in a backup role.
Fantasy Take: While Skelton is inconsequential now in fantasy, Kolb is an interesting name to follow. This is what he was supposed to do when Arizona traded away a player and draft picks for Kolb and gave him a large contract but he eventually lost the job to Skelton. Now Kolb has a QB rating of 108.6 and leading the Cardinals to a 3-0 record with a reasonable easy upcoming schedule, starting with the Dolphins. He's worth a backup job in most fantasy formats.
