QBA.J. Feeley

A.J. Feeley

195 pass yards, pass TD, INT

The Rams won't make a decision on Sam Bradford's status until late this week, and possibly not until Sunday, so Feeley makes for a very risky play. Even in last week's stunning upset of the Saints, he didn't post very fantasy-friendly numbers.

RBSteven Jackson

Steven Jackson

85 rush yards, rush TD, 4 rec, 23 rec yards

Jackson absolutely lit up the Saints last week, accounting for 191 total yards and two TDs. The Cardinals' defense is ranked 15th against the run this season, although it gave up three TDs to Ray Rice last week.

RBQuinn Porter

Quinn Porter

0 rush yards

WRBrandon Lloyd

Brandon Lloyd

6 rec, 80 yards, rec TD

Lloyd has led the Rams in targets in each of his two games with the team, although it should be noted that both were with backup QB A.J. Feely. Sam Bradford returns this week, although Lloyd's targets should remain high as he is the Rams' best receiver.

WRGreg Salas

Greg Salas

4 rec, 44 yards

Salas was second in receptions and receiving yards for the Rams last week and will likely maintain his spot as the No. 3 receiver if Denario Alexander remains out with a hamstring injury.

TELance Kendricks

Lance Kendricks

3 rec, 30 yards

Kendricks clearly didn't have good chemistry with backup QB A.J. Feeley, catching one pass for two yards in the two games they played together. Sam Bradford is expected back this week, although Kendricks' upside remains quite low.

KJosh Brown

Josh Brown

2 PATs, FG

Brown has only four field goal attempts in the last five games and remains one of the worst fantasy kickers this season due to his low number of opportunities.

DEFENSE

INT, 4 Sacks

The Rams' defense did a good job last week containing the Saints' passing game and should have an easier time this week against Cardinals. However, they are last in the NFL against the run and will be tested by Beanie Wells.

QBJohn Skelton

John Skelton

125 pass yards, pass TD, 2 INTs

With Kevin Kolb likely sidelined due to turf toe, it'll be up to Skelton to take the reins. He at least knows how to throw it up to Larry Fitzgerald, but there isn't much else here.

RBBeanie Wells

Beanie Wells

91 rush yards, rush TD

Wells was solid last week against Baltimore, rushing 22 times for 83 yards and a TD, only the second rushing TD that the Ravens have given up all year. The Rams have the worst run defense in the NFL and Wells should be a busy man this week.

RBLaRod Stephens-Howling

LaRod Stephens-Howling

8 rush yards, 1 rec, 20 rec yards

Stephens-Howling got the backup carries last week against the Ravens, although he hardly produced enough to warrant much fantasy consideration moving forward, even against the weak Rams' run defense.

WRLarry Fitzgerald

Larry Fitzgerald

5 rec, 81 yards, rec TD

Fitzgerald caught three passes for 98 yards last week against the Ravens, though 66 came on a single play. The matchup against the Rams' defense is better this week, although they just had a good performance against Drew Brees and the Saints.

WREarly Doucet

Early Doucet

4 rec, 42 yards

Doucet had two catches for 20 yards and a TD last week at Baltimore and he's claimed the No. 2 receiver spot in Arizona. Unfortunately, that hasn't meant much in fantasy leagues this season as Kevin Kolb continues to struggle getting the ball to his WRs.

TEJeff King

Jeff King

3 rec, 19 yards

King was the Cardinals' second leading receiver last week, although that isn't likely to be a constant moving forward. He is playing mostly due to the hamstring injury to Todd Heap and he doesn't provide the receiving skills that Heap does.

KJay Feely

Jay Feely

2 PATs, FG

Despite two field goal attempts last week, Feely has only three kicks in the last three games. With the Cardinals' offense struggling to move the ball on a consistent basis, Feely remains a very weak fantasy kicker.

DEFENSE

INT, 3 Sacks

The Cardinals defense will be put to the test this week by Steven Jackson, who lit up the Saints' defense last week. However, the Cardinals are also 30th against the pass, so they could be pressed all around by the Rams.
