QBJohn Skelton

John Skelton

211 pass yards, pass TD, INT

Skelton put the ball in the air 52 times Monday, but managed just 5.6 yards per attempt. The Cardinals have had trouble sustaining drives and Skelton has thrown just one touchdown on 126 attempts this season.

RBLaRod Stephens-Howlin

LaRod Stephens-Howlin

70 rush yards

Stephens-Howling should have much better luck this week than he did against San Francisco, when he had eight carries for six yards. The Packers give up 4.1 yards per carry, and the defense is missing several key starters from the line and linebacking corps.

WRLarry Fitzgerald

Larry Fitzgerald

6 rec, 96 yards, rec TD

Fitzgerald has been targeted 11 or more times in four of the Cardinals' last five games. He will likely line up across from Tramon Williams this week, a matchup that benefit the veteran receiver.

WRAndre Roberts

Andre Roberts

5 rec, 67 yards

Life isn't so bad when you start across from Larry Fitzgerald. Roberts is on pace to catch 72 balls for more than 900 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has been targeted an average of nine times over the last five games.

TERob Housler

Rob Housler

3 rec, 31 yards

The Cardinals are dividing up the workload at tight end between Housler and Jeff King -- not a winning combination for fantasy owners. Housler is the better play of the two, but he's miles from being a viable fantasy option.

KJay Feely

Jay Feely

PAT, FG

Things have gotten ugly in Arizona this past month. How ugly? Look no further than Feely, who has scored three or fewer points in three of the team's October games.

DEFENSE

2 Sacks

The Cardinals do a good job of getting after opposing quarterbacks and generating turnovers (15). One might assume Green Bay's offense will frustrate Arizona, but the Jaguars held Aaron Rodgers and company in check last weekend.

QBAaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers

254 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, 14 rush yards

Rodgers has thrown 11 touchdowns and no interceptions in his last three games. He faces one of the league's top-ranked pass defenses this week, but matchups do not seem to affect him right now, and he should have a healthy receiving corps at his disposal.

RBAlex Green

Alex Green

56 rush yards, 2 rec, 13 rec yards

If Green is a feature back, fans haven't seen it yet. He has averaged just 2.9 yards per carry this season and is more effective catching passes out of the backfield. Green is still the Packers' starter heading into this week, but James Starks could begin to push for reps.

WRJordy Nelson

Jordy Nelson

5 rec, 82 yards, rec TD

Nelson's hamstring didn't pass the test at game time last week, so the coaching staff held him out. This week he'll be on the field. The Cardinals have one of the league's stingiest pass defenses, but they couldn't keep San Francisco's No. 1 receiver, Michael Crabtree, out of the end zone. Arizona won't contain Nelson this week, either.

WRJames Jones

James Jones

5 rec, 63 yards, rec TD

With Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings on the sideline, Jones -- not Randall Cobb or Jermichael Finley -- became Aaron Rodgers' weapon of choice. Jones has become a solid No. 2 fantasy receiver, with good catch and yardage totals even when he's not scoring touchdowns.

WRRandall Cobb

Randall Cobb

4 rec, 46 yards

Cobb will return to his role as the team's No. 3 receiver now that Jordy Nelson is back in the lineup. The "demotion" means very little -- Green Bay's third receiver is more productive than most team's No. 2.

TEJermichael Finley

Jermichael Finley

3 rec, 36 yards

It just keeps getting worse for Green Bay's disgruntled tight end. Finley's drops have not gone away, and now he has fallen out of favor with Aaron Rodgers, seeing just 12 targets in the past three weeks despite injuries to the Packers' receiving corps.

KMason Crosby

Mason Crosby

3 PATs, FG

Crosby has missed four of his last eight field goals, with some of the failed attempts coming off his foot looking like knuckleballs. Even if he made every attempt he was given, Crosby wouldn't score enough to warrant a spot in your lineup.

DEFENSE

INT, 4 Sacks, TD

The Packers are tied for the most sacks in the NFL, with 26. Arizona has allowed more sacks than any other offense, with 39. Clay Matthews, meet John Skelton.
