Three Cardinals skip Monday practice


Three Cardinals skip Monday practice

Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton @johnskelton19 (ankle), running back LaRod Stephens-Howling @LS_H36 (groin), and tight end Todd Heap @ToddHeap86 (knee) all skipped Monday's practice. QB Kevin Kolb @KevinKolb_4 has filled-in and then some, leading Arizona to a 4-0 record and he looks likely to replace Skelton in Week 5. LSH has seen a larger workload with RB Beanie Wells out and since Arizona is facing a short week with a Thursday night game lined up, it seems as though RB Ryan Williams @lilsweetness34 will be tasked to be the featured back. TE Jeff King has played in place of Heap and will likely do so again with Heap not having played since Week 2.

Fantasy Analysis:

Williams is likely the biggest story here since he'll take on a ton of responsibility in Arizona's backfield against a below-average Rams defense. The Cards are red hot yet are fortunate to be undefeated given their inability to find a balance between run and pass. Kolb has carried this offense and the defense deserves a ton of credit for making big plays when it matters. Kolb remains a so-so fantasy QB2 and shouldn't be relied upon as anything more than a spot-start. Arizona doesn't feature their TEs much so King is out of the question.
