Week 6 - Kolb threw for 289 yards in week 5, but failed to record a TD for the few fantasy owners that started him. He remains a low QB2 option in fantasy for week 6.
Week 5 - Another week, another nice job by Kolb as he threw for 324, 3 TD’s and 2 INT’s. He needs to cut down on his turnovers going forward, but as he gains experience he is quickly becoming a legitimate QB2 option in deep formats. Kolb will face the Rams defense in week 5.
Week 4 - Kolb has been playing well enough that it looks like he may retain the starting job when John Skelton returns from injury. In week 3, Kolb and the Cardinals took down the visiting Eagles, and Kolb threw for 222 yards and 2 TD’s. While no means a fantasy monster yet, he does make our top 25, and is an intriguing QB2 to keep an eye on going forward as he continues his progression.
Week 2 - Kolb makes our weekly rankings in the 30th spot simply by virtue of the fact that we wanted to alert fantasy owners that he is starting in favor of John Skelton. Kolb should not be considered a viable fantasy start until he starts consistently producing for the Cardinals.
Kevin Kolb’s 2011 season was extremely disappointing for the Arizona Cardinals and fantasy team owners alike. He managed to play in just 9 games, as he missed a large portion of the season with severe concussion symptoms. Now in 2012, he may not even get the starting job as he is currently competing with John Skelton, and rumors have John Skelton in the lead. Be sure to check back as we will update our list depending on who wins this battle. No matter who wins the job, both Kolb and Skelton should be viewed as low end QB2 for 2012
