While it may not be the end-all, be-all, strength of schedule is a major reason why some good teams might go 8-8. Conversely, 5-win teams of last year can ride a creampuff schedule to doubling their win total.

Did any of you imagine that Cardinals rookie QB John Skelton was going to have an impact in the fantasy playoffs? Or maybe the fairer question would be to ask if any of you had heard of Skelton prior to this week?
Hoping for a spark, Ken Whisenhunt has pulled QB Derek Anderson in favor of rookie Max Hall against the Rams.
The old cliche says that you can never go on ‘the list’ because of injuries. Or maybe the saying was that you can never lose your job because of an injury. Those cliches get tough to manage.

Fantasy enthusiasts have nary a kind word for some NFL coaches. Does Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt belong on that list?
A rough start in Arizona by Cardinals rookie QB Max Hall — rough to the tune of two interception returns for touchdowns — has resulted in a Derek Anderson sighting during the second quarter.
Max Hall is a great story, and there’s no shortage of reasons why. Following his first NFL start, the reaction from his teammates shows he’s earned their respect.
Beanie Wells is seeing more carries in Week 5, but it’s not equaling more fantasy production.
One member of the Cardinals not worried about a budding quarterback controversy is Beanie Wells. He has his own situation on his mind.
Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt feels us as fantasy enthusiasts. Or so I would love to believe. Because Whisenhunt sounds about as exasperated about his current quarterback situation than your typical fantasy owner talking about his injured or ineffective quarterbacks.
We might be witnessing the beginning of the Max Hall era in Arizona.
Beanie Wells is expected to be back in Week 3, but he’ll be a risky option for fantasy owners.
Stop me if you have heard this one before — RB Beanie Wells expects to play on Sunday. Of course he does. Even coach Ken Whisenhunt is getting tired of repeating the same refrain over the past couple of weeks.
Eagles coach Andy Reid announced that QB Michael Vick will be the team’s starting quarterback because apparently, coach Reid enjoys winning. Fantasy enthusiasts everywhere rejoice this wonderful news. Especially when you consider what Vick did last week and that the Eagles play the Jaguars this week.
