Arizona's defense has been fairly strong overall, but quarterbacks have had some success against them. The team has allowed 22 passing touchdowns in 12 games. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 19.17 Fantasy points per week against the Cardinals defense. The team has been susceptible to letting quarterbacks post strong games. Four quarterbacks have thrown for three touchdowns in a game against the Cardinals this season.
Clemens hasn't really shown that big play ability this season. In the five games he's started, Clemens has only thrown multiple touchdown passes once. He could be saved if he focuses more on Jared Cook. The Cardinals have been the worst team against the tight end this season, so Clemens will need to look his way often. That being the case, it's tough to trust Clemens as a Fantasy starter.
Clemens hooked up with Brian Quick for a 3-yard touchdown strike late in the fourth quarter. He was also picked off by Carlos Rogers earlier in the final quarter. He completed 19 of 37 passes for 218 yards with one touchdown and one interception in a 23-13 defeat.
Clemens has passed for 385 yards with two touchdowns and one interception over his last two games. He'll look to get back on track in Week 14 at Arizona.
Clemens, who has looked sharp at times for the injured Sam Bradford (knee), only completed 10 of 22 passes for 167 and a touchdown against the Bears in Week 12. He has not thrown a pick over his last three games, and has averaged 208.0 yards with a total of four touchdowns over that span. He'll face a San Francisco defense that has allowed only 208.2 passing yards per game this season, which is the fourth fewest in the league.
It would be a desperate move to start Clemens at all this season, let alone this week. With the bye weeks over this season, there are plenty of better matchups at quarterback for Week 13.
While the 10 completions may seem low, they're actually an improvement on Clemens' last start, when he completed nine passes against the Colts, in Week 10. This was the second game this season in which Clemens has passed for fewer than 200 yards and the third time in four starts in which he's passed for one or fewer touchdowns.
Clemens faces the 49ers in Week 13.
