Josh Moore on Twitter - [Full Article]

In four games with John Skelton starting at QB in 2010, Larry Fitzgerald averaged 6.75 receptions, 87 yards and 0.25 TDs per game. With Kevin Kolb, Fitzgerald is averaging 4.9 receptions, 86 yards and 0.29 TDs. In games started by Skelton (2010), Fitzgerald saw 27.7% of targets (41/148). With Kolb, 25.6% (58/227).

Fantasy Impact: 

Looking at last year's Skelton numbers vs. this year's Kolb numbers shows that Kolb has only resulted in a 4% bump in Fitzgerald's fantasy production.

In his first game with Skelton under center this season, Larry Fitzgerald recorded only 4 catches for 43 yards, but did find the endzone and led the team with 12 targets (35%). Fitzgerald's 12 targets were a season high in an exciting Cardinals overtime win.
