Beanie Wells injury update: Fantasy status probable despite knee issues

Elsa

Beanie Wells is expected to suit up for the Cardinals against the Lions on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Beanie Wells is expected to play for the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. The running back was listed on the team's injury report with a knee injury, but was able to practice fully throughout the week.

Wells has played in three consecutive games, and is reportedly getting closer to 100 percent after missing seven straight games. Unfortunately, his numbers have been poor. He has 88 total yards rushing and two touchdowns on 38 carries over his last three outings.

Fantasy Impact: Wells should be getting better as the weeks go on, but so far his production has dropped in each game since his return. He is sharing touches with LaRod Stephens-Howling and William Powell as well. Factor in the awful support from the passing game, and you have a bad fantasy prospect. Wells should be on your bench, unless you are in an especially deep league.
