QBSam Bradford

Sam Bradford

180 pass yards, pass TD, 2 INTs

Despite throwing the ball a season-high 44 times against the Jets in Week 11, Bradford was only able to throw for 170 yards and two touchdowns. The Cardinals' defense is coming off a huge five-interception day against Matt Ryan, indicating that Bradford is not a good fantasy option in Week 12.

RBSteven Jackson

Steven Jackson

75 rush yards, rush TD, 2 rec, 14 rec yards

Jackson had 13 carries for 81 yards against the Jets, and he looked good doing it. Over his past two games, Jackson has 182 rushing yards and is getting two touches for every one touch backup Daryl Richardson sees.

RBDaryl Richardson

Daryl Richardson

30 rush yards, 2 rec, 22 rec yards

Richardson had a respectable day for a backup running back, rushing six times for 26 yards against the Jets. Richardson has a better fantasy future than fantasy present.

WRDanny Amendola

Danny Amendola

8 rec, 90 yards, rec TD

After Amendola's big 100-plus-yard return In Week 10, he could only muster 41 receiving yards in Week 11 on seven catches. Even so, he's the biggest threat in the Rams' passing game and he should be fine for Week 12 against the Cardinals, the team that knocked him out in Week 5.

WRBrandon Gibson

Brandon Gibson

4 rec, 40 yards

Gibson caught only three passes in Week 11, but two of those grabs were in the end zone for his first touchdowns since Week 2. Those scores remain rare, so don't be tricked into starting him in Week 12.

TELance Kendricks

Lance Kendricks

2 rec, 20 yards

Kendricks caught only two passes for 14 yards against the Jets. He's still not worth a look in most fantasy leagues, especially with the bye weeks over.

KGreg Zuerlein

Greg Zuerlein

2 PATs, FG

For the second time in his past three games, Zuerlein was held without a field-goal attempt against the Jets. The Rams' offense is still too erratic to trust the rookie in fantasy play right now. He kicked one field goal against the Cardinals in Week 5.

DEFENSE

2 INTs, 4 Sacks

After the Rams' five-sack performance against the 49ers in Week 10, they followed up with three more sacks in Week 11 against the Jets. They had an amazing nine sacks against the Cardinals in Week 5, so they're lined up to be a good fantasy defense once again.

QBRyan Lindley

Ryan Lindley

140 pass yards, 2 INTs

Lindley replaced John Skelton before halftime of Sunday's game at Atlanta. Whoever gets the start in Week 12 is likely a placeholder until Kevin Kolb returns from a rib injury.

QBJohn Skelton

John Skelton

0 pass yards

Skelton threw for only six yards in two series against Atlanta before being replaced in the second quarter by rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley. The Cardinals' passing game is in severe trouble, and fantasy owners should steer clear.

RBLaRod Stephens-Howlin

LaRod Stephens-Howlin

55 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 30 rec yards

LSH was the only bright spot for the Cardinals' offense in Week 11, as he ran for 127 yards and a touchdown at Atlanta. Beanie Wells (toe) is expected to return in Week 12, however, which will likely hurt Stephens-Howling's fantasy prospects for now.

RBBeanie Wells

Beanie Wells

40 rush yards, 1 rec, 8 rec yards

Against the Rams, Wells (toe) is finally expected to return to the field for the first time since Week 3. LaRod Stephens-Howling has performed well in his place, so these two players could end up splitting carries, making neither a great fantasy start.

WRLarry Fitzgerald

Larry Fitzgerald

4 rec, 40 yards

Despite being thrown to a team-high 10 times in Week 11, Fitzgerald was only able to come down with one catch for 11 yards against the Falcons. The Cardinals' quarterback situation is in disarray, and Fitzgerald's owners are feeling the worst of it.

WRAndre Roberts

Andre Roberts

4 rec, 35 yards

Roberts caught just one pass for seven yards against the Falcons, and the Cardinals' quarterback problems are clearly affecting the fantasy value of all Arizona receivers. Roberts should be reserved in most formats.

TERob Housler

Rob Housler

2 rec, 22 yards

Housler didn't catch a pass in Week 11, and he's not someone fantasy owners should be considering.

KJay Feely

Jay Feely

PAT, 2 FGs

Feely had a big day in Week 11, while the offense around him struggled. He kicked four field goals and one extra point in only the second game all season in which he scored more than 10 fantasy points.

DEFENSE

2 INTs, 2 Sacks

The Cardinals gave the Falcons fits in Week 11, but the Arizona offense just wasn't obliging. The Cardinals registered one sack and five interceptions against Matt Ryan and Co. This could be a nice sleeper defense to play against the Rams in Week 12, especially after allowing only 242 total yards to the Rams in Week 5.
