AZ somehow keeps playing good defense despite the dead bodies, road game and Kap didn't look great last week.
Chiefs aren't really stopping anyone and Tanny is solid at home, so he should be OK.

Went for over 300 all-purpose yards and a touchdown against the Bears in Week 2. Almost 70 of those were rushing though, something that Chicago is very weak at from a defensive standpoint. Don't expect the same results against the Cardinals. He will be a solid QB2 but no more against Arizona.
Expect some urgency for putting up some points on the board, early and often, after a Week 2 butt kicking to the Buffalo Bills.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Cardinals are 16th against fantasy quarterbacks this season. Kapernick can attack this defense, if he plays within himself and avoids turnovers.
