Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Cardinals are 12th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Wilson's ability to run the football makes him a weekly QB1 play.
Rivers has just 1 touchdown and 3 picks in his last 3 games and goes against a Rams D that held the Broncos to 7 points last week. Rivers is a dicey QB2 that is struggling in recent weeks.
