Arizona Cardinals running back William Powell was a full participant in practice this week. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals running back William Powell (head) was a full participant in practice this week. The Cardinals back tailback suffered a blow to the head in last week's Thursday Night Football match against the St. Louis Rams. After some extended time off, it looks as if Powell will be able to return as soon as this week against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Analysis: Powell could be in a position to get some fantasy points this week! With an injured backfield, Powell looks to be the front runner for carries in the Cardinals offense. Even though LaRod Stephens Howling is returning as well, Powell had the shining preseason performance. If the way he performed in exhibition is any telling of what he'll be able to do during the season, Powell could be the next waiver wire steal. He'll be a low-end flex option this week, but there is room for his value to grow.
