|Cards opt for Lindley to start at QB in Week 17|
HC Arians backtracks from giving rookie first start

FFToday's Take: ESPN reported Wednesday that Thomas struggled in his first practice as the starter, which probably prompted the move. Even if that was the case, it is hard to see the upside in starting Lindley, who is a career 49.3-percent passer and has attempted a NFL-record 225 passes without throwing for a touchdown. For now, however, Arians appears to be leaning toward starting Lindley against San Francisco on Sunday.
| Cardinals may have QB Stanton back for playoffs|
'85 percent' chance
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 24, 8:44 am
|Drew Stanton has an 85 percent chance of starting at quarterback for the Cardinals in the playoffs.
That's the number that head coach Bruce Arians gave to SiriusXM NFL radio in an interview on Tuesday night, adding that he would not play Stanton this weekend against the 49ers unless there was an emergency. "He's going to practice some this week, and we'll see how he goes," Arians said, via ESPN.com. "Do not plan on playing him this week unless it was absolutely necessary." (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: Arizona is expected to go with Logan Thomas at quarterback for Week 17 while Drew Stanton will only see action in an emergency situation. This deflates the fantasy values of every Cardinal for any owner vying for Championship this weekend. For owners in fantasy playoff games, the Cardinals offense would get a boost if Drew Stanton does indeed return.

Cardinals starting QB up in the air

|Just talked to an informed azcardinals source, the best kind, who believes Logan Thomas will start vs. 49ers. (Kent Somers on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: As anticipated Ryan Lindley didn't fare well against the Seahawks in Week 16. Drew Stanton (knee) swelled up after practicing last week and won't be an option for Week 17. The Cardinals are in the playoffs and will likely be a wildcard team if they lose to the 49ers on Sunday.
