The Cardinals have decided to start QB John Skelton in Week 1.
This is probably good news for Larry Fitzgerald, who caught 42 passes for 753 yards and six touchdowns in the eight games with John Skelton under center. He caught 38 passes for 658 yards and two touchdowns in the eight games where Kevin Kolb threw the most passes. Skelton targeted Fitzgerald 11.0 times per game. Kolb targeted Fitzgerald 8.1 times per game. Over the course of the season, Fitzgerald scored 43% more fantasy points with Skelton under center.
