Fantasy Tip: Stanton is not expected to play, so QB Ryan Lindley is in line to start in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. It's a terrible matchup for the third-string signal caller, so FantasyScore owners should ignore him.

Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) said this injury is different from any other he's ever had, and he said it's too soon to know if he could return to play in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. He hasn't had any setbacks and started jogging with a brace on his right knee this week. Stanton watched practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and has thrown a ball recently. "It's felt good," Stanton said. "It's one of those things you just go to kinda take time and the healing process is different for everybody."
Fantasy Tip: Stanton almost certainly won't play this weekend against the Seahawks, and the Cardinals will likely rest him up until the playoffs. Avoid Ryan Lindley ($3,600) against Seattle at FantasyScore.

Arizona Cardinals OG Jonathan Cooper (wrist) was wearing a cast on his left arm Monday, Dec. 15, after being injured in Week 15. He called the injury "somewhere in between" a sprain and a fracture, but he said the pain will be tolerable enough to keep playing. Cooper has started the last two games in place of OG Paul Fanaika (ankle), who is expected to be available in Week 16. Head coach Bruce Arians was non-committal about which guards will start against the Seattle Seahawks after the team has posted two straight games with season highs in rushing.

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley enters the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks with 181 pass attempts without a touchdown, which is the most in NFL history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Seahawks have allowed only two passing TDs and have intercepted four passes in their last five games. Lindley has the worst completion percentage (51.4), fewest yards per attempt (4.3), least amount of touchdowns (0) and lowest total QBR (9.1) among 60 quarterbacks with a minimum of 150 passing attempts since 2012, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Fantasy Tip: Despite a cheap price of $3,600 at FantasyScore, you should avoid Lindley like the plague in daily games. Nothing about his skillset or the matchup shows promise here.

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) could be out two to four weeks, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "Everybody's so different in how they heal," Arians said. "So much of it's your makeup mentally -- how bad do you want to heal? And he wants to heal up fast. We'll see."
Fantasy Tip: There's a very good chance we won't see Stanton again until the Cardinals' first playoff game this year. In his place, Ryan Lindley is expected to start against the Seattle Seahawks in a very important divisional matchup. Look to avoid Lindley against a Seattle defense that is among the toughest in the league right now.

Fantasy Tip: Lindley will start in place of Drew Stanton (knee) but will be facing a very good Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 16. Owners should not consider using Lindley has a starting option this upcoming week.
