Cardinals QB John Skelton practicing; QB Kevin Kolb expected to start again

Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt hasn't said quarterback John Skelton @johnskelton19 will not play this weekend. Despite his still-healing sprained ankle, Skelton has even been practicing the past couple of days. It's just very unlikely that he plays. Skelton is listed as questionable on the injury report. Kevin Kolb @KevinKolb_4 is expected to get his second consecutive start.
"I don't have any expectation of John than wanting to get back healthy and compete for the job," Whisenhunt said Friday. "Once we get to that point, we'll make a decision."

Fantasy Analysis:

In other words, Skelton hasn't gotten to the point where he is healthy and can compete for the job. Kolb was generally safe against the Patriots and kept the mistakes to a minimum. He's not worth starting in fantasy, obviously; he just needs to get Larry Fitzgerald @LarryFitzgerald involved more often. Fitzgerald will see a lot of Nnamdi Asomugha on Sunday, but please keep him in your lineup. I know people out there are wondering whether they should sit him in favor of Donnie Avery or Danny Amendola. Don't get cute, gamers. It's still Larry Fitzgerald.

You need to pick one of those three guys? Wow, if those are your flex options, I would love to see your other starters.

I gotta go with Fitz, too. He did almost nothing last week, but I still trust him more than CJ. I can't play Johnson until he does something. There are so many things wrong with him and his offensive line; the only thing wrong with Fitz is that he doesn't get the ball enough.
V-Jax is clearly third here, as he's got a tough matchup against those Cowboys corners.

I agree with the two previous comments but I have Fitz , Wallace and Bowe to choose from to start as my second receiver. (I already went with Steve Smith on Thursday) The last two have juicy matchups and will go with one of them just can't decide who. Its not that I don't have confidence in Fitz its just that QB situation is a big ol mess and that team doesn't seem to have any identity other than a Def that is playing out of its mind right now.
