Beanie Wells has a strong fantasy performance in first game back from injury

Christian Petersen

Beanie Wells has spent much of the season on injured reserve, but he returned to the Cardinals' lineup in style on Sunday.

Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells had a successful return to the lineup on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.

Wells rushed 17 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams. It was Wells' first game back from injured reserve after suffering a toe injury early in the season. Larod Stephens-Howling, who is Wells' primary backup, received only one carry on the afternoon. William Powell also got three carries.

Fantasy Impact: Beanie Wells could become a key fantasy producer down the stretch for those lucky enough to grab him off the waiver wire. He faces the Jets next week followed by the Seahawks and Lions.

Wells was expected to return to a committee situation, but he shouldered the load for Arizona, which is a great sign.
