Fantasy Football Impact Of The Arizona Cardinals In 2012

Fantasy Football Impact Of The Arizona Cardinals In 2012


Fantasy Football Impact will be a rundown of each NFL team’s stars and how they could benefit your Fantasy Football team in 2012. We will look into every team starting in alphabetical order and see which prospects we will be looking at come draft day.

The Arizona Cardinals are a year removed from their huge quarterback pick up in Kelvin Kolb whom they had hoped could be a franchise QB. Kolb only started nine games due to a concussion and didn’t look great in those games throwing for a combined 1,955 yards with 9 TD’s to 8 interceptions his rating was QB rating was 81.1.

Now with John Skelton sharing snaps with Kolb in practice this could be a long season for the Cardinals who do not have a clear veteran QB. Skelton failed to impress in his seven games with 11 TD’s , 14 interceptions, 1,913 yards, and a awful 68.9 QB rating.

The Fantasy Football leader of the Arizona Cardinals in 2011 was runningback Beanie Wells who had 245 carries for 1,047 yards and 10 scores. He was not much of a receiving threat with only 10 catches on the season so do not look for him to get a ton of points in a points per catch league.

Arizona did go with an offensive player in the 2012 NFL draft who could grab a few Fantasy points for your team in 6’3” wide receiver Michael Floyd. He has deep play ability and a great wide receiver in Larry Fitzgerald opposite of him to not only pull the defense away but mentor Floyd throughout his early career.

However that being said without a good QB to get them the ball scoring could be very thin at the wide receiver position for the Arizona Cardinals. A team that has little fantasy football value apart from Beanie Wells , look for him to go in the second maybe third round if you are lucky. Larry Fitzgerald comes off a lot of boards early because of the big name, and while a great talent do not be suckered into a big name receiver with no QB and look elsewhere.
