Todd Heap, LaRod Stephens-Howling to be game-time decisions; fantasy values low for Week 5

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Arizona Cardinals tight end Todd Heap and running back LaRod Stephens-Howling are expected to be game-time decisions on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals tight end Todd Heap and running back LaRod Stephens-Howling are both expected to be game-time decisions on Thursday, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt. Heap has been slowed by a knee injury and Stephens-Howling is dealing with a hip flexor. The Cardinals face the St. Louis Rams on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Neither injury should have much of an impact on fantasy lineups this week. Heap hasn't played since Week 2 and Stephens-Howling is a limited part of a backfield that has averaged less than 70 yards a game through the first four weeks of the season. Ryan Williams is the best fantasy bet at running back for the Cardinals but he is a fringe No. 2 or flex play this week.
