On Wednesday, the Arizona Cardinals signed former Cleveland Browns quarterback Derek Anderson.
Everywhere, Larry Fitzgerald owners rejoiced.
With Anquan Boldin and Kurt Warner both leaving him in the desert, and staring at the prospect of needing Matt Leinart to become competent in a few short months, the reality that the game's best receiver might lose significant fantasy value was becoming a very real proposition. However, adding a former Pro Bowl quarterback in Anderson to compete with Leinart indicates that Arizona had similar concerns to Fitzgerald owners about their quarterback situation.
Anderson's best season in the NFL was 2007, when he threw for 3,787 yards and 29 touchdowns. However, between his inconsistency on the field and the inconsistency from the Browns organization regarding their quarterback position, his numbers have fallen in each of the past two seasons. If/when he wins the starting job in Arizona, his fantasy value should increase dramatically.
