Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Skelton suffered an ankle injury in the team's season opening victory over the Seattle Seahawks. He has not played since. Kevin Kolb has taken the reigns for the Cardinals and preserved the team's perfect record.

Fantasy Impact: John Skelton is a more useful fantasy quarterback than Kevin Kolb. His arm strength allows him to take more advantage of the weapons in Arizona's offense. Larry Fitzgerald also gets a boost when Skelton is in the lineup. However, Kolb has been an effective game manager for this team, so Skelton's job is not guaranteed upon his return to health. He's a risky fantasy option at this point.
