Arizona Cardinals (vs Saint Louis Rams)
QB Ryan Lindley
: It appears he will be the starter this week. If that's the case even Fitzgerald becomes bench material. ( 140 yds pass and 2 Ints; 15 yds rush )

RB Beanie Wells: He says he is ready to go but look for the Rams to stack the box and make Lindley beat them. ( 45 yds rush and 1 TD; 2 catches for 15 yds )

RB LaRod Stephens-Howling: LSH had his shot but will be relegated to back up duties once more even after a stellar performance last week. ( 10 yds rush )

WR Larry Fitzgerald: Just when it seemed it couldn't get worse for Fitzgerald the Cardinals find a way to top themselves. ( 3 catches for 35 yds )

WR Andre Roberts: He isn't going to get many looks this week with what should be a very conservative game-plan. ( 3 catches for 50 yds )

WR Michael Floyd: He probably benefits the most with the change at quarterback. He is better suited for the short underneath routes. ( 2 catches for 25 yds )

TE Robert Housler: He didn't see a target last week and will only see a couple this week. Forget about him. ( 1 catch for 15 yds )

PK Jay Feely: Interesting play here as the Cardinal defense wins the battle of field position providing scoring chances. ( 1 XP, 3 FGs )

Def Arizona Cardinals: This defense is playing very well and will benefit from being at home. ( 3 sacks, 1 INT )

Saint Louis Rams (vs Arizona Cardinals)
QB Sam Bradford
: He'll be asked to be a game manager with the recently found success in the running game. ( 215 yds pass with 1 TD and 1 Int )

RB Steven Jackson: He has been playing like his old self and will have no problems continuing that on the road against a divisional opponent. ( 70 yds rush and 1 TD; 2 catches for 25 yds )

RB Daryl Richardson: He will see carries to spell Jackson but not enough to consider him for your lineup. ( 20 yds rush )

WR Danny Amendola: Listed as doubtful now for week 12.

WR Chris Givens: He's been quiet but he beat the Cardinals deep earlier this year and will do it again. ( 5 catches for 85 yds and 1 TD )

WR Brandon Gibson: He is one of the weeks hot waiver claims after his two touchdown performance but don't be fooled into starting him this week. ( 5 catches for 80 yds )

WR Austin Pettis: Only seeing time with the liklihood of Amendola being sidelined. ( 3 catches for 30 yds )

TE Lance Kendricks: In standard leagues his highest point total in a game is 4. 'Nuff said. ( 1 catch for 5 yds )

PK Greg Zuerlein: His recent struggles won't affect him this week kicking indoors. He'll get his shot at some long ones though. ( 2 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def St. Louis Rams: They have a fantastic matchup even if it's on the road. Consider them a top 10 defense this week. ( 2 sacks, 2 INTs )
