John Skelton isn’t reminding anyone of Kurt Warner these days. Cardinals fans would settle for Matt Leinart at this point. I’m certainly not suggesting that Skelton should be in fantasy lineups, but don’t go crazy and bench Larry Fitzgerald..
First of all, he’s replacing Kevin Kolb. It’s not like the Cardinals are taking a huge step back. They are going from airplane food to hospital food. Neither are good options..
Second, Skelton was the starter at the beginning of the year. Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but again I’m not saying play Skelton.  I’m saying play Fitz because the quarterback that won the preseason battle is under center..
Don’t forget that Skelton manned the position last year and actually had some success. In the final four weeks for the Cardinals he averaged 290.8 yards per game with seven touchdowns. He also threw seven picks, but that didn’t stop him from putting up fantasy numbers..
You should also remember that Larry Fitzgerald averaged 117.0 yards during those four games. He also scored a pair of touchdowns..
Meanwhile, Andre Roberts also scored a pair of touchdowns. He’s obviously a low-end option, but in Week 7?s heavy bye week schedule, he could end up being someone you rely on..
The Cardinals will likely struggle to run the ball against Minnesota. The Vikings should score some points at home. The Cardinals are going to have to throw the ball around in this one..
Look for Fitzgerald to have a big day. Skelton loves to lock into him. Who can blame him? Roberts should gain about 40-50 yards. If he scores he ends up being a decent option...
